    In the second film from the bottom, you can watch from the 6 minute mark on for interviews of young Greeks in a square. As the last man is being interviewed, you can hear a few friends say something to him in Greek. They are telling him to clam up immediately.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.

      how it happens. The functionaries are put in place, the leftwing is silenced, dissidents are jailed, but otherwise, life goes on normally. You can still go into the square and have coffee with friends, but you have to watch it.

      Life is normal like that in Tehran too. You can still have your parties, alcohol, women can wear mini-skirts, etc., as long as you don't mind the blackshirts barging in at any moment.
