Making Iran Great Again

The Iranian Renaissance is an organic, grassroots movement knit together by ideals drawn from the Gathas of Zarathustra, the precepts of great statesmen such as Cyrus and Anushiruwan, and the ethos of Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh. With its vision of the reconstitution of Greater Iran, the Iranian Renaissance may be the contemporary cultural movement with the most revolutionary geopolitical significance for the future of the Middle East, the Caucasus, and Central Asia. Its triumph could also open the possibility of a deeply rooted and enduring alliance between Iran’s future regime and nationalist movements in Europe and North America.
