Happy (?) Iranians

PharelliranTake a look at this charming video made by 6 young Iranians. It’s a tribute to Pharrell Williams’ song Happy.

The young people who made it were arrested and forced to “repent” on national television. What makes anyone think that God is not playful? Would he have created humans with such an obvious drive towards enjoyment, playfulness in all it’s forms and to creativity if it didn’t reflect something very deep in the nature of God?

The arrest of these young people is a sad reflection on Iranian culture – I won’t say on Islam as you can quite clearly tell from the beauty and creativity of Islamic arts and science that this is not something that comes from its heart. It’s a classic example of the Play of Power vs the play of Self-Actualisation.
