You cannot control a population without controlling communication. Killing off the educated classes is also favored, but all Iran's professionals moved to the USA in the 70s.
Heck, my primary physician is Iranian! And female!!!
Lots maybe but not all.
One of my shames about the actions of my own country is the harvesting of the professional cohort from countries that need them more than we do. When the Berlin wall fell, my political jurisdiction immediately sent a recruitment team to a reunited Germany to entice away health professionals to come and work here. We actively recruit clinicians from the Caribbean, from the Middle East, from Asia, and other locations.
Some 'cross-pollination' in any industry or profession is a good thing. But as it stands, it seems to be a one-way street from the developing to the "developed" world. Tragic.
Clearly, Iranian professionals came here for a damn good reason. We didn't "steal them."
Iran drove them away.
Sucks to be you, Iran.
Shortly after the revolution, one of the top professor in the country was leaving. They were refusing to allow his wife to take her gold. He symbolically took the gold, stood on it, pointed to his head and said "the real treasure I am taking is here, and I will never be back in this country"
