Censorship in Iran

Iranian Censorship at its best ...

Magazine cover
The Economist, Apr 15 2006, pp26-27. Advertisement for LG. The woman is wearing a jogging dress.

Magazine cover
National Geographic, Feb 2006, Cover. This issue of NG is about this phenomenon called love. The cover is a photo of a couple in embrace, not really kissing, but almost. On the uncensored cover, that is.

It is astounding that there are people who believe that this kind of censorship will actually work. It is even more astounding that such people are actually in government and their policies are endorsed by millions of citizens who voted them to power !!!

I guess that is the beauty of democracy...
