New Suits for an Unfinished Game

The world is a useless place for human beings without people. 
The people are not politicians, champions or heroes. They might be involved in politics and even become a threat to political balances, or defend their country to death; but none of these positions would be permanent for them. They are not extraordinary, but ordinary; not born to be better or the best but the same. This is the reason that there is no lasting era and vogue. Classical and Romantic Schools were popular but they are already gone. 
It was an achievement for the system to revive the 68 Movement in the recent years, which made some surprised. But these people from Europe to U.S. that could make whatever was left as dream in 1968 need peace. It is not a reward! This is what gradually is going to take place in their lives; as there were two separate universes between over-politicization of the 60's and political indifferentism of the 80's. For instance because of the socio-political impact of Michael Jackson works, which reproduced the term "good citizens" by a post-modern and radical form. 
However, as political attitude of people shapes the ruling politics, their social behaviors can play a similar function, which is why controlling the entertainment industry is a key element for political players. It is evident that the battleground will changed; the war of shows will replace the war of words: consciousness against unconsciousness; fact vs. fiction.

Documentation of a Protest

The lesser of two evils principle was overwhelmed by people in the latest US Presidential election. They preferred to encounter the consequences of a tough decision rather than surrendering to fear. This consciousness must be kept alive; meanwhile Donald Trump Presidency might have had a negative impact on audacity of some people. 
An effective socio-political revolution or resistance takes place through a long-term scheme, just like growing a plant. Cuban revolution is a good counterexample to display the weakness of rapid acts in this regard. Resistance must not be a burden to the people. One should not call for people for taking another hard decision like what they took in 2016 elections. But it does not mean that the Democratic Party can simply present anyone as its own candidate for the following Congressional and then Presidential elections. Liberalization of the party's platform is also important for the system. 
At the present time, unlike what the media and Democrats are trying to induce people to believe that the result of the latest Presidential election was a failure to democracy, the system must ensure the society that the decision was right and a milestone in the way of a forming revolution. It was the actual advent of the "Bern or Bust" pledge; a brave step to push forward the movement.

Destruction for Reconstruction

Some European states and companies are dissatisfied with the recent decisions of the White House against Iran's nuclear deal and Iranian Revolutionary Guards, while they are relatively responsible for such a situation. They did not take advantage of their own economic power and in particular their position as financial investors in Iran as a leverage against the ruling class and their predominant policies. The stance of Tehran toward human rights, their paramilitary macro policy and environment has not changed since the nuclear deal. 
And of course, a comprehensive dialogue is needed between European corporations and the system. The function of sanction is based on destroying an economy, while destruction is not a goal; it is a targeted reconstruction. The game is not new, and Vietnam is an example in this regard. Unfortunately, since economic actors of the global community cannot play their hand the Iran sanctions should be expanded to reset the time. It is worth to mention, few months later, the reconstruction of Syria will be started; an opportunity to win whatever was lost in the war. There are several ways to delay this reconstruction but the best option is readiness for taking over both economic and political wheels of the post-war Syria.

In Pursuit of Side Effects

All effective elements will be allowed when impact itself is the goal. 
It is evident that situation of the Middle East is not in accordance with parameters of regional and global security; a balance of power is going to be established, which might only ensure the political security of states in the region but can undermine the human rights.
It is true that the region has no more capacity for conflicts and in this regard, one can firmly claim that Iraq owes its current security and sovereignty to the system. But the Middle East needs emergence of a new political element and capacity to make the current balance of power meet challenges. The favorite Kurdish plan for holding an independence referendum is just like allowing a big party to enter the political competition; certainly confronting the new concerns requires taking new measures and actions.
Needless to say, according to ICJ advisory opinion on Kosovo's declaration of independence, which has been considered a precedent, the possible independence of Erbil does not violate the international law even if it is against a domestic court order or constitution. And it can inspire all ethnic and religious minorities in the Middle East. 
The system supports all actions that highlight the position of ethnic and religious minorities all around the world.

Taliban: Peace in Return for Human Rights

Without security, democratic and human rights values would be meaningless. 
Perhaps, some are willing to see a rapid and widespread human rights in Afghanistan. Although Afghanistan is able to overcome Taliban but unfortunately it is not what Afghans want to. A small but continuous damage can break any resistance. This has been the technique of Taliban since US occupation of Afghanistan. And today, Afghans suffer from lack of a psychological readiness for a big and difficult resistance against Taliban. 
Therefore, a compromise between Kabul and Taliban is a necessity. Taliban could not only be recognized as a political party. Their leaders are smart enough to understand how far away people's perspective are from Talibanism. Taliban wants to have a considerable share of political power, which cannot be achieved through a democratic system and ballot. 
The system must try to help Afghanistan with a realistic deal, though it might sacrifice human rights in the country for upcoming years.

North Korea: Sleeping Samurai

Maintaining the balance of power requires active cooperation of global powers over the containing or distributing power. 
Japan is one of few world powers that lost the ability for active cooperation in forming global balance of power because of facing China and especially North Korea challenges. Keep this logic in mind, the winner cart of the U.S. in the World War II and the Cold War, was the distance from the scene, which was Europe. It is evident that as long as Japanese are concerned about the regional threat of North Korea, they have to impose some considerations to their international relations in favor of China, Russia and the US, which leads to a semi-passive foreign policy from Tokyo. In spite of that, the position of Japan toward Ukraine Crisis in 2014 was decisive. 
The winner of managing the North Korean crisis have been Russia and China since it made them able to use North Korea as a leverage for restraining Japan. So the crisis must be settled. 
In this respect, as the first step the system must initiate two tripartite and quartet talks: 3-party talks between Tokyo, Seoul and the System and 4-party talks including Pyongyang.

Engineering a Revolution

People consciousness and mass mobilization is required for forming a revolution. 
Che Guevara could not achieve his goal in Bolivia because he only intended to design a successful guerrilla warfare. In contrast, defeating the Hitler's Beer Hall Putsch, Castro's Moncada Barracks and 1963 demonstration in Iran, though were not engineered but played leading roles in the revolutions. For starting a revolution, one should capture people's hearts. 
A magnificent defeat like the sample of Iranian Green Movement or a beautiful death such as the moment of Che’s execution, which motivate people awaking, are just prerequisite of a revolution. Indeed, the elements of time and nature are the greatest architects in politics. 
Today's Iran is ready for a revolution. But it is only an option as long as the game is not out of control. The system must break it to make the revolution a necessity, not a choice.
