Storyboard Text

  • Hey, I just read that Iran's now a democracy. This newspaper doesn't give much description, do you know what their government was like before?
  • Yeah, their government was previously a theocracy.
  • Would you mind giving me a little more description?
  • Sure! A theocracy is a government ruled by religion.
  • What good things could that possibly bring?
  • Well, when deciding on laws it's easier because their religion decides it.
  • After reading about Iran's new government, the girl wonders about what their government was like before, but doesn't get the information she's hopinh for. She sees a man who happens to be reading the same article and asks him if he knows anything
  • Oh! It's starting to make sense.
  • Also, in neighboring countries to Iran there has been A LOT of religious conflict, but there's no argument in Iran because everyone was of the same faith.
  • The guy tells her that a theocracy is a government ruled by religion, where there is no separation between church and state.
  • But wait! What about people that don't share the same faith? What do they do?
  • Well, that's one of the disadvantages of a theocracy. People who don't have the same faith don't really get a say. And because it's law, they still have to follow it.
  • When she finds out what a theocracy really is, she's confused as to what good that could possibly bring, especially after being taught that people have freedom of religion.
  • That doesn't seem very fare, but I guess that's why they've changed. Thanks for the help!
  • No problem!
  • Once he gives her some of the advantages, she realizes that it doesn't sound so bad, and that it makes sense that a country with an uncommon belief would bound together like that.
  • Going back to her earlier thoughts, she wonders what people do if their not of the same faith.
  • After having this conversation she realizes that like every other government, their are advantages and disadvantages.
