Iran Hajji Baba Democrat

The Hâjji Bâbâ(s) [of The Middle-East] and the politics:

“The genius of the Persians is lively and volatile […]. They are powerfully affected by that which is presented before them at the moment —forgetful of the past, careless of the future — quick in observation, and correct as well as quick, when they give themselves leisure to examine the principles of their decision —but often contented to draw their conclusions too rashly and hastily.”[sic]

(Sir Walter Scott, in: The adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan, by James Morier, London, 1823)

If still unconvinced, try Iraj Pezeshkzad’s My Uncle Napoleon. The Hajji and My Uncle Napoleon, same portrait, different perspectives.

(Extracted from: Chronicles from Iran, 2012)
