Exceptionalism versus magnanimity
There is no reasonable justification for citizens anywhere to consider themselves or their country necessarily “exceptional”. When one is talking about particular governments pushing the meme of “exceptionalism” (rather than, say, humility) in some grandiose way, watch out.
TEHRAN -- Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said here on Saturday, “We should value our human resources and prevent the political winds from stealing our entrepreneurial forces and righteous people.”

“We should think of improving the society by logically correcting the questionable cases,” Rafsanjani told members of the Islamic Association of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences at a meeting.

The proper groundwork should be laid for the activities of student groups, he said, and he advised students to avoid extremism in their activities. He called the achievements of the Islamic Republic glorious, adding, “We should not mar the country’s past.”

Through interaction with the world, Iran can have an influential presence in international fora in order to inform the world about the realities of the country, he noted.

On the nuclear issue, Rafsanjani said negotiation is the best solution to Iran’s nuclear standoff, which has become more complicated due to the U.S.-led provocations.

He also called on officials and the people to maintain unity and to wisely deal with issues.
