[After more than an hour serious dialogue]
BF: so, what if the majority of Iranians do not want this political system? Don't you think that the government (both elected and selected parts) should step down?
KH: This is not true. All Iranians, except for a very few of them, are devoted to this system.
BF: It is just an assumption.
KH: This is a wrong assumption. They have given more than a million
martyrs for this system [Comment: How many martyrs Did the National
Socialist German Workers' Party take under Adolf Hitler?]
BF: Ok! It may never happen but for the sake of argument, assume that
people say no "velayat-e faghih", in a, let's say, referendum.
KH: In that case, it is like a child who tells his mother "I do not like you" just because his mother has not bought him a chocolate, for his very own sake. The child is just nagging but the mother may not leave him alone.
BF: Ok! I got it.
