1. Read "Reading Lolita in Tehran"
The fascists may try to suppress everything that doesn't agree with their insanity, but they can't eliminate it.

Just as Dr. Nafisi found a group of students for a literary salon in Tehran under repression you and I can't begin to imagine, so will any forbidden literature and ideas fluorish underground here.

That's a mistake totalitarians always make, the attempt to kill ideas. We can't. We can't even kill their ideas, no matter how many times history has discredited them.
