We are very close to the point when unlike the KGB and unlike the Catholic Church, Facebook or Google will be able to understand you better than you understand yourself because they will have the data, they will have the biological knowledge and they will have the computing power necessary to understand exactly how you feel and why you feel the way that you feel.—Historian Yuval Noah Harari
A crisis is looming in Iran’s healthcare sector: patients are reporting shortages in life-saving medicine. The situation is expected to worsen once US sanctions on Iran are reimposed in November. European and US companies that can provide the advanced medicine and equipment needed to treat chronic diseases inside Iran are grappling with how to sustain their operations. —Ellie Geranmayeh & James Miller
We call on the international community to strongly condemn the executions [of Zaniar Moradi, Loghman Moradi, and Ramin Hossein Panahi] and urge the Iranian authorities to respect their obligations under international law. The Iranian authorities must take steps to ensure that everyone has a fair trial, that torture and other ill-treatment are absolutely prohibited, and that the practice of forced ‘confessions’ is stopped once and for all.—Amnesty International
For the last 242 years there has been a movement to transform America from a closed society to a more open society, and it opened access to the voting booth, classrooms, employment opportunities and public accommodations. The Department of Justice is now moving away from that, and its emerging view of civil rights is a dangerous trend, inconsistent with legal history, and a disturbing manifestation of President Trump.—Norman Siegel, frm dir New York Civil Liberties Union
I hope those who mourn my passing, and even those who don’t, will celebrate as I celebrate a happy life lived in imperfect service to a country made of ideals, whose continued service is the hope of the world. And I wish all of you great adventures, good company, and lives as lucky as mine.—John McCain
Once more, we see Trump doing much to hurt international cooperation and order — and very little to improve American security or prosperity. His aides keep predicting that victory is around the corner; they’d do best to present a workable strategy first.—Jennifer Rubin, Washington Post
CNN just hosted a panel on whether the US should topple Iran & what regime should replace it. Every segment like this presupposes it’s ok & right for the US to destroy other countries & millions of lives at our whim. These commentators are true sociopaths.—Lee Camp
Iran has been a nightmare for American administrations since 1978. On both sides, a combination of mutual hostility, suspicion, toxic domestic politics, inept diplomacy, bad luck, and bad timing have prevented changes that would benefit both sides. The secretary’s recent speech demonstrates that, even if this all isn’t just a clumsy attempt to distract from the president’s recent bumbling in Helsinki, this administration has learned nothing from the last 40 years.—Former American hostage John Limbert
Yet no-one can take away from the heroic efforts of Queiroz’s team.—Mark Irwin: The Scottish Sun
The reality is that the punitive measures to come could hurt Iranian officials more than previous ones, but the real victims again will be average Iranians. And let’s be honest, that’s the whole point.—Jason Rezaian
