A recent event in Iran is the banning of “Devil worshipping hair” Hair that is now becoming popular in Iran's youth age group is now becoming banned because its not what they belivee in, its supporting something “un-islamic”, this couldve impacted their society negatively later on very badly, but even now that they are taking it under their arm they are getting dirty looks. The Iranian government isnt ashamed of what they banned because they know what couldve came out of letting them have that freedom

Iranian’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei came out to accuse America's accusation of Tehran building an atomic bomb, the leader telling the world this brought down a big red flag for Iran because an atomic bomb is a big deal. Then he says America accused them just so they could gain control and be the dog keeper. Doing this did help Iran socially it brought down doors between curious countries who were probably ready to untie the knot with Iran.

Iran is a very big oil country, so everything that exports is mainly oil. Although all these other events that are happening are helping them socially oil is their number one focus, there would be no Iran without their export of oil. Cars are coming too be using electricity and not gasoline/oil so remaining questions are what are they going too do when the oil isn’t needed any longer (which will take over 100 years) what is the supreme leader going too do next too help Iran's economy, without a healthy economy there is not a healthy government.
