It Takes an Artist

Some times, it takes a courageous artist to recall basic facts — to remind us how important truth can be where lies have found great currency.

As an example, see Arash Norouzi's piece on the how media has demonized Iran. Norouzi's Mossadegh project might also be worth a look. He also points to a Mossadegh rock opera by Michael Minn, which premiered in New York in the summer of 2004. For the audio clips of the opera try here.

Courage should not be that hard to muster but it apparantly has become a very rare commodity only accessible to the few.
