"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

-- Isaac Asimov
New Persians.
One of my cookbooks (by an Iranian) explained in the introduction: the country has always been Iran. Persian is name Iranians were called by the Greeks. The writer said that today, due to the confused and unstable religio-political situation, many Iranians use "Iran" for the country and stuff regarding the country, but prefer "Persian" for matters of culture and cuisine.
New But the name for the language, "farsi", izzat their own or from the Grecians?
(Channelling my inner Dubya.)
New Looks like the Greeks weren't far off.
The main region of Iran, and seat of empires, is Fars, the large province in the southwest, and that's where the language name comes from, but in old Persian (around 500 BCE), it was Pars, or Parsis.
