I love Anne Applebaum's clarity. Her ability to dissect an issue. Her laser-like writing style.
In today's edition of the Washington Post, she writes about Iran's women and their strength not only in the current upheaval against the regime, but behind the scene for decades in opposition to build momentum and organize against repression. Ultimately, she concludes that "...regimes that repress the civil and human rights of half their population are inherently unstable." Exactly.
