Hooman Rights?

Dear Hooman Majd and Reza Aslan,
When Jon Stewart asks "What can we do to help?" he doesn't mean the U.S. Government. He's not asking "How can we interfere with internal political affairs." He means the people, folks like you and I. So saying "we should stay out of this" is counter-productive to not just hamvatan but our fellow man. The talk-amongst-ourselves mularkey is taking away from the responsibility to show leadership to the uninformed, and relinquishing the power to shape the future. The reason for #IranElection's popularity is that its a global phenomenon of New Media that speaks to all our souls in a One World dialectic.

Or somethin' like that.

Sincerely,
Mister Vizard
