ABSTRACT
This article reports on what role the Internet will play in the future of Iranian politics. According to researchers at Stanford, five million Iranians are online, and Persian has become the third most common language used for weblogs. The author asserts that the massive amounts of Western entertainment that is banned by the Iranian regime, yet available to Iranians through the Internet may actually serve to distract Iranians and keep them from pushing for change from their theocratic rulers.
