Iran, Alberta and the Democratic Force of Blogging

Albertans can learn from Iranians. Maybe not so much from the ruling theocrats in Iran, but from the pro-democracy reformists.

The strategy of the Iranian democracy advocates is to encourage widespread blogging. The intended result is a foment of grass-roots political action among the young, tech-friendly Iranian middle-class at home and abroad.

One such blogger is Hossein Derakhshan (aka Hoder). He blogs the popular Editor: Myself. Hoder has been a voice promoting the power of the blogosphere as a change agent in Iran (see here and here).

Albertans can learn from such examples. If concrete thinking about greater Alberta autonomy is to be produced, then it will likely be stirred by Albertans blogging about it.

So if you are an Albertan thinking about what Alberta's future is going to be like:

Start a blog. Post a comment. Self-publish your ideas.

It may be that other Albertans need to hear what you are saying.
