"Many Iranians are recalling the 1979 revolution and the 1997 reform movement...The routes of demonstrations are the same as those against the shah. But this does not mean that people are imitating the 1979 revolution... repetition without mere imitation.

Now people are taking these claims literally, calling the regime's bluff."
—From the essay "The People Reloaded" by Morad Farhadpour and Omid Mehrgan
