Traveling in Iran you can not, but be struck by the exuberance and desire to contact young people of this country show to foreigners. A great desire to open up after decades of total isolation. The Iranian society, hanging in the balance between a dramatically longed for modernity and a network of coercive superstructures that smother this urge. Young people, the hope for modernisation of the country and the hope for a new and possible dialogue between Islam and the western world; a hope that is being stopped by the populist and racist policies of the newly elected US president Donald Trump through “The Muslims ban”, an act that will only bring hatred and misunderstanding, and legitimise coercive Iranian government to nip this wave and the desire for change, that is sweeping young Iranians, in the bud.
