When the poor class in a nation has nothing to lose and starvation forces them to look for food in bins all while any critic of the luxurious lifestyle of their oppressor are met with brutal repression, neither bullets nor mass arrests can stop them from protesting against the status quo.
At a time when masses only see a dark future for themselves and their families, any organized opposition effort to tear down the wall of repression will foster a culture of resistance and give courage to the silent majority to join the starving protesters on the streets.
When the affluent ruling class is riddled with corruption and the ruling system can no longer deceive people because of growing internal conflicts among the political establishment and is unable to reinstate the atmosphere of fear by its security organs because of losing ideological leverage, a real change in favor of the poor class is inevitable.
The above is the very definition of a revolutionary situation in a society.
However, when there also exists a determined popular resistance movement to overthrow the authoritarian system, no powers, no cunning opportunists nor behind the scene deals can provide the ruling class with security guarantees and ensure their survival by stopping the change whose time has come.
Such is the situation today in Iran’s society.
