MEK: Explosiveness of Iran Society
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that in a meeting of regime officials, Iran’s vice president, Ishaq Jahangiri, acknowledged the dangers and destructive consequences of crises such as poverty, coronavirus, water scarcity, power outages, and other disasters.
The state-run daily media
“Complex issues arise when we are unable to address problems and challenges in a timely manner.” On July 11, the state-run daily Jahan-e-Sanat published an article citing Jahangiri.
The truth is that, above the economic, social, and environmental issues, the people’s grievance with this regime is political.2
People have boycotted the regime’s election, and every protest has turned into a confrontation against the dictatorship, such as the people’s protests about power shortages, which were accompanied by anti-regime chants such as “Down with Khamenei.”
People do not believe in officials
People do not believe in officials, according to Jahan-e-Sanat, which acknowledges that people’s security in society is eroding day by day as a result of the regime’s actions and that the consequences, which have manifested themselves in the form of negative economic, political, psychological, and cultural effects in society, are considered to cause distrust among the people.
The people’s distrust and resentment, according to the state-run Arman daily, are the foundation for a “social explosion.” “The reason the country’s situation has deteriorated to such a point that officials do not act on a plan and instead talk. This has been going on for about a year in the country.”
The class gap is in a deplorable state
“According to statistics and objective observations, the class gap is in a deplorable state,” “It is better to fill the class gap with a series of effective actions of decision-makers else it will be filled with the anger of the lower classes without any political support and will reach the boiling point because of poverty.” Wrote the state-run daily Ebtekar in a piece titled “Warning for a dangerous gap” on July 11.
The Iranian people are very angry
This publication continued, “The people of our society are very angry, and the volume of bad news these days is so great that it has put everyone’s tolerance threshold at risk.” Discrimination and inequality are sentiments of insecurity, uncertainty, and economic pressures. Ignoring society’s demands and expanding expectations is the source of this fury; our society is an angry society, and this is a strong message to the officials who are responsible for a significant portion of this social unrest.”
The explosion of, an angry society
“High levels of resentment in society have a variety of negative consequences. If these negative energies are concentrated, there can be a risk of explosion, an angry society becomes a destructive society. There is nothing but ruin in an angry society, and the officials must be concerned that this rage, that will explode. When individuals are denied access to their rights, it is natural for them to become enraged.” On the same day, per the Aftab-e-Yazd.
The desire for regime change
The regime’s authorities’ constant warnings about the volatile situation are a confession of society’s desire for regime change.
