ANYONE WHO IS RESIDING IN IRAN IS NOT BEING ABLE TO SIGN IN AT THE WEBSITE OF COURSERA.ORG AND CANNOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF FREE ONLINE COURSES AND EDUCATION.

THE MESSAGE POPS UP AT THE TIME OF SIGN IN THAT SINCE YOUR IP ADDRESS IS OF A COUNTRY WHICH HAS SANCTIONS SO YOU CANNOT SIGN IN.

I SAY THAT EDUCATION IS A UNIVERSAL BASIC HUMAN RIGHT AND HOW THE HECK THESE CRUEL COMPANIES HAVE HEART TO SAY NO TO JUST NORMAL HUMAN BEINGS FOR FREE ONLINE EDUCATION.

THE CORPORATIONS ARE BECOMING BEASTS AND THE WORLD IS BECOMING EVEN WORST THAN JUNGLE UNFORTUNATELY.

THESE COMPANIES SHOULD PROVIDE EQUAL AND FREE CHANCE OF EDUCATION TO EACH AND EVERY COUNRTY IN THIS WORLD. EVEN US GOVERNMENT SHOULD CORRECT ITSELF IF IT IS REQUIRED.

Tyg,

AUTHOR: Karl - ()

Since there are countries, like Germany, who disagree with the fact that the United States of America was spying on their politicians and their people, do you think that these countries should impose sanctions on the USA? You can 'Google' this- US-GERMANY RELATIONS HIT NEW LOW AMID NSA SPYING SCANDAL, and read the related articles on the web.

You can also 'Google' this- NSA SPIED ON WORLD BANK IMF UN POPE WORLD LEADERS, and read the related articles on the web. I guess this means that there must be 'terrorists' working at the World Bank, IMF, UN, and even at the Vatican, right? Why else would the NSA be spying on all of them?

Iran

AUTHOR: Tyg - ()

 Sanctions mean that there is something going on with THAT country and the rest of the world disagrees with it. if you REALLY want to learn, then LEAVE THAT COUNTRY!!!! Is has NOTHING to do with corporations or that the world is a "jungle". It has EVERYTHING to do with the political choices THAT country has made. Sanctions are a last resort before boots on the ground. They are TRYING to effect change in THAT country by denying access to the basic human needs. If the people get tired of NOT learning and NOT getting medicine, and NOT getting food, then THEY will rise up and tell THEIR government that THEY NEED TO CHANGE!!! Stop blaming other for what is YOUR OWN COUNTRIES FAULT!!

I dont care what the religion is. I dont care who worships what fictional entity. Neither does most of the world. The sanctions are in place for a VERY GOOD REASON. The Iranians can WHINE all they like. But until Irans citizens do something to change WHO represents them to the world, those sanctions are going to stay in effect. Iranians may not see it now but the world is only trying to make their lives safer. Its unfortunate that Irans LEADERSHIP has done as they have because the people of Iran are the ones to suffer. The government and the officials that run it are wealthy enough that sanctions dont apply to THEM. They can BUY what they want while the populace suffers.

Point your hate and anger at the government who cant stop playing with trying to make nukes. THEY are the ones who have done this to Iran. The rest of the world is justifiably concerned that a mad man is going to have nukes. Ok so its a horrible inconvenece to not be able to learn. It would be even MORE of a h*** if the nutjob that runs Iran gets a hair up his poop shoot and fires a nuke. The WHOLE WORLD is put in danger then. So a little discomfort is a whole lot better then a 20 year nucleur winter because some basketcase leader decides the rest of the world should die for NOT worshipping HIS god.

#3 Consumer Comment

Education,

AUTHOR: Karl - ()

I agree with what you stated in your Ripoff Report. No one should be denied access to education that is available on the internet, in my opinion. I'm glad that people all over the world can type in 269041 at this site and scroll down to the consumer comment entitled "Blame it on a Lawyer" at Ripoff Report #269041 and read what a Harvard Business Professor said to his class of executives in late 2004.

Most people will never have the privilege of attending Harvard. However, anyone can come to this website and read the information contained in that consumer comment. It certainly appears that the good professor knows his stuff, wouldn't you agree? Good luck to you!
