Leader urges debate on lib. democracy

The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Opressed People says Iranians must have the courage to enter into intellectual disputes with Western liberal democracy.

In a meeting with university professors, Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei criticized the lack of change in the humanities syllabus in Iran, saying, “This deficiency indicates the lack of courage to enter into intellectual discussions with Western liberal democracy.”

The Leader said that generating thought is more difficult than generating knowledge.

“Iran is the cradle of philosophy and university professors and seminary lecturers should make efforts to generate thoughts rooted in the philosophical view,” Imam Khamenei said.

The Leader described the scientifically-developed countries’ monopoly over science and scientific capacities as one of the obstacles in the way of Iran’s scientific progress.
