If everybody either:

A) Do what George says
B) Think like George

The world would be a better place, that's all George is going to do.

First of all it seems to me, you are very interested in this subject despite the fact you try to tell everybody in this forum that you are not?

Despite the fact that many TP members say that these topics should not be discussed here, the religion and politics threads regularly turn out to be some of the longest threads, and the longest lasting conversations.
This leads me to believe, that TP members who claim that we should not talk about religion and politics are "protesting too much", by the Shakesphere definition of protesting too much.
Please give your thoughts on the above.
Do u personally think that discussing religion and/or politics should be allowed on TP or not?

What is going on in your mind and your logic?
It seems to me you are are trying to be a double standard in your discussion?
By the way do you work with the special service (!?) who are searching people's thought about different issues?

They are not 2 Iranian Americans who are detained. In fact they are 4 of them !

The answer to your question

What do u think, should be done about the 2 Iranian Americans, who are detained in Iran, Kombizz?

I wonder if that situation was reversed and they were doing what so ever were doing good or bad in the another country i.e. any Euopean Countries or in America, then what would be the reaction of those gavernments toward them?

Search me, I am not a politician !

Just to clear up any confusion Kombizz.

I am very interested in politics and religion and psychology etc and how the world and the various cultures and individuals in society are are effected by all three.

No, I work for no special service. I search for information, only out of a personal interest.

As for your other questions, if u want me to answer them, u will have to be way more specific, with your questions.

Starting a velvet revolution, is not a crime in Europe.
The government would not do anything to prevent people holding peaceful demonstrations. It is the right of everybody to do so.
Here in Germany, it is the duty of the police, to protect anybody holding a peaceful demonstration.
They is always a police presence, when a group is peacefully demonstrating. If a group want to demonstrate, on the streets, they apply for permission and then police are assigned to prevent any trouble that might break out, because others object to the demonstration.
