This is more important than anything else you are doing

Akbar Ganji is a remarkable man of iron will and firm principles. He is one of the bravest people that I have ever met. He has, by himself, confronted the regime in Iran and condemned it for its heinous behaviors and its corruption. With stunning clarity he calls for the end of the rule of the jurisconsult, the core of the regime's ideology.
Take a moment to reflect on what Ganji is doing, ponder the sheer guts that it takes, and register his critique.
Hungering for Reform in Iran: "Today, the hard-liners are rejoicing once again, for now the nuclear debate is eclipsing the most important current headline about Iran. That headline is simply the name of a man: Akbar Ganji."
