Abstract

Silencing Iran is a research paper centered on post-revolutionary Iran. This paper seeks to explain the ways in which the government of Iran after the revolution successfully silenced a majority of their people. This silencing was a reaction from radical Islamists to all citizens in opposition to their newly formed regime. The government silenced its opponents through propaganda, violence, laws, and manipulation. This paper provides the opinions and perspectives of individuals that have been silenced by this oppressive governmental regime. The nation state of Iran has ultimately become known by many outsiders and Islamist radicals as being a successfully functioning theocracy; however this success is highly subjective and has come at the cost of many Iranians. This paper seeks to present the flaws in the government of Iran and illuminate individuals of opposition that do not have a voice in their own country.
