YouTube: Iran Before 1979

“This video (I created) reflects Iran during the time of the Shah when it was a modern, socially free, and a progressive nation with a blend of western and traditional values which made it a gem in Eurasia. These are a selection of photos from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.”

I know there are various views on Iran’s politics in the time of Shah - but the culture of Iran during his era is quite fascinating, without doubt. Must see!

    You don't support the pahlavi's do you?

  • thedailypersian answered:

    Ehhh I nothing them. Politically. Well maybe more than nothing, the shah made some moronic, dumb choices. His foreign policy was NOT good and his internal policy served only a portion of the population. I mean he came to power when he was 18 surrounded by yes people and being literally told what to do by the U.S. and UK. I’m surprised he didn’t figure out he probably shouldn’t take orders from the governments that JUST exiled his father…. Very odd … But anyway although in the end he started to change, it was too little too late.

    As people, particularly Farah, I feel sorry for them. Hatred from their fellow Iranians, Exiled , then their dad/husband dies in a bad way, then a daughter kills herself, then a son… I don’t know how she’s functioning. She’s just a frail old lady. She should be able to die at peace in her homeland. But obviously the government still finds her a threat 40 years later, or at least her symbolism…

    In terms of me reblogging stuff well you can’t deny they look cool. Well dressed and glamorous, aesthetically pleasing. They look good on my blog lol. And I can’t deny their existence in history. That period of time fascinates me.

“Today, on ‘Revolution Day’, or the anniversary of the establishment of the Islamic Republic government of Iran, let us not celebrate the Iranian government. Instead, let’s condemn it for its tyranny, and let’s celebrate the revolution that is ongoing within Iran. The real revolution. The people’s revolution.”hummusapiens (Feb. 11 2015)
