About the Author
JOHN R. HALL, Senior Contributing Editor John R. Hall is a street-trained agnotologist with an advanced degree in American Ignorance. Other hats include: photojournalist, novelist, restaurateur, mountaineer, grocer, nurseryman, and janitor. He’s written three novels which have been read by almost nobody: ‘Embracing Darwin’, ‘Last Dance in Lubberland’, and ‘Atlas fumbled’. An untrained writer and college drop-out, he began his short career in journalism writing the ‘Excursion’ column for The Jackson Hole News & Guide. More recently he penned the ‘Left Column’ for The Molokai Island Times; appropriately on the island once known as a leper colony. John currently resides, writes, and protests injustice in the shadow of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and walks among the spirits of those who once occupied the 79 Disappeared Pueblos.

uza2-zombienationTo understand the mural from an Iranian perspective,  you’d need to spend three or four lifetimes studying its 6000 or so years of continuous inhabitation.  Since that’s out of the question, let’s go back to the middle of the last century, when the world was just starting to recover from the carnage of the planet-sized barroom brawl known as World War II.  Along about 1951, Prime Minister Mohammed Mosaddeq managed to nationalize the oil industry, wrestling control away from the British.  This was a two-pronged assault upon everything held to be Holy by the burgeoning U.S. Empire and its client European states.  Not only was Iran using its natural resources for the common good (socialism), it was taking control of the most sacred substance on earth (oil).  What was Mosaddeq thinking?  There’s a hero and a fool born every minute; often in the same body.
