    Typical TGR thread.

    OP posts about a "Black Swan" event that could easily cause World War 3, and soon the thread is about stylish footwear.

    __________

    King Salman and crown prince Mohammed bin Salman have implemented “Vision 2030”, a long-term blueprint of economic and social reforms designed to modernise Saudi Arabia and wean itself off reliance on oil revenue.

    While there has been promise of several reforms for female citizens so far just a handful of the important decisions a woman in Saudi Arabia still cannot make for herself include:

    Marry
    Permission to marry must be granted by your wali, or guardian. Women who seek to marry foreigners must obtain approval to do by the ministry of interior, and marriage to non-Muslims is so difficult as to be impossible.

    Open a bank account
    While there are now a few jobs women in the Kingdom are allowed to do without male permission, such as working as shop assistants or at fairgrounds, they are not allowed to have their own bank account to control their finances without permission.

    Get a fair trial
    The testimony of a woman is only worth half a man’s in Saudi Arabia’s legal system. Women also only receive half the inheritance their brothers are entitled to.

    Travel
    Passports and identification cards must be obtained with the permission of a male guardian. Women are usually also not allowed to leave the home alone.

    Dress how they want
    “Dressing for beauty” is illegal, and modest clothing and make up encouraged.
    Full length abayas - a long coat worn over other clothes - must be worn by all women in public, although in recent years rules over the colour, decoration and how headscarves are worn have been relaxed.

    Interact with men
    Conversations and time spent with men who are not family members is limited. In public, restaurants, universities and other spaces have both a ‘family’ section and a section reserved for men.

    I notice, the Shah of Iran is having something of a resurgence. He's getting a lot of credit for keeping Iran in order.

    What footwear is best for black swan events? Please be inclusive in your response so that it is something that works for everyone: Iranian Revolutionary Guardsmen, oppressed Saudi women, and ANTIFA protestors.

    Operation Ajax has to rank up there on the list of stupid and regrettable actions carried out the US in our name. Cold War paranoia, is, was, and will never be a valid defense for the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Iran, or any other government during that time period. The precedent set is indefensible. And the blowback has led us to where we are now.

    Yea, I mean that’s the point. We ignore atrocities that result in tens or hundreds of thousands of deaths with a shrug and “not our people not our problem”. But attack oil that isn’t owned by us, wasn’t going to be shipped to the US, and many are willing to go to war over it.
