This truly needs to be fixed. Areas of activity in which Iran is interfacing with existential enemies by means of technologies, devices and instruments controlled by the latter, call for adequate regulation.
The practice of pricing commodities and services in US dollars must be done away with in the Iranian economy. Media represent another priority, be it the internet with its western-controlled, weaponized platforms or satellite broadcasters which have amply demonstrated that they won't shy away from instigating and openly calling for violence as well as terrorism in Iran, a violation of basic journalistic deontology (if foreign-language Iranian media embarked on a fraction of that, they'd be banned and effectively made inaccessible by western regimes in a matter of minutes).
Note that in both domains (as well as others not mentioned), in-house liberals i.e. reformist / moderate factions as well as their political-economical pressure groups have set out to sabotage about every encouraging initiative destined to alleviate these major threats to Iran's national security and sovereignty. It is necessary to clear this roadblock, an actual fifth column of the west.
Likewise, cultural work must be accomplished in order to eliminate the appeal of the west's technological gadgets and consumerist culture which tends to pervade Iranian society including the political class. As Imam Khomeini (rA.a.) rightly remarked, we managed to expel American imperialists physically from Iran, but we are still to cleanse the minds of our people of their perpetual mischief.
