A triumph for state terror?

"Consider the juxtaposition of the phrase 'free thinking for the world' adorning the magazine's logo with Derakhshan's disparagement of an intellectual engaging in "comparative analysis of socio-political change in contemporary east-central Europe and the Islamic Republic of Iran". Perish the thought that a scholar should be free to undertake such studies and explore such terrain openly" -- Danny Postel on Jahanbegloo, Hoder and openDemocracy
