Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Shah of Iran -Interesting Interview

The former shah was known for being completely candid. As his dictatorship was no doubt no picnic to live in, he accurately pegged the problems of western "democracy". He correctly pointed out that our decadence will be our undoing. There's another interview with Mike Wallace where he came out and said the American media is controlled. It's kind of funny watching Wallace being all incredulous about what is now an obvious fact.
