In the social sciences, a political movement is a social group that operates together to obtain a political goal, on a local, national, or international scope. Political movements develop, promulgate, amend and produce materials that are intended to address the goals of the base of the movement. A social movement in the area of politics can be organized around a single issue or set of issues, or around a set of shared concerns of a social group. In a political party, a political organization seeks to influence, or control, government policy by nominating their candidates and seating candidates in politics and governmental offices. Additionally, parties participate in electoral campaigns and educational outreach or protest actions aiming to convince citizens or governments to take action on the issues and concerns which are the focus of the movement. Parties espouse an ideology, expressed in a party program, bolstered by a written platform with specific goals, forming a among disparate interests.
Some political movements have aimed to change government policy, such as the anti-war movement, the ecology movement, the anti-globalization movement. Many have aimed to establish or broaden the rights of subordinate groups, such as abolitionism, the women's suffrage movement, the civil rights movement, gay rights movement, the disability rights movement, or the inclusive human rights movement; some have represented class interests, such as the Labour movement and communism, others have expressed national aspirations, such as anticolonialist movements, Rātana and Sinn Féin. Political movements can involve struggles to decentralize or centralize state control, as in anarchism and Nazism. With globalization, global citizens movements may have emerged. Movements may be named by outsiders, as with the levellers political movement in 17th century England was so named as a term of disparagement, yet admirers of the movement and its aims came to use the term, it is the term by which they are known to history.

Trust the Tangerine Peel is the 7th official studio album by Iranian singer-songwriter Mohsen Namjoo. It was released on May 28, 2014; the album is a mixture of original and cover songs using both contemporary and classical Persian poetry. At times, Namjoo attempts to juxtapose or fuse Persian and popular western styles of music in "Roo Dast" and "Golmammad"; some suggest that "Golmammad" is an homage to Gol Mohammad, the hero of the story of Kelidar, written by the notable Iranian writer, Mahmoud Dolatabadi. However, in interviews, Namjoo has stated that "Golmammad" has been based on a traditional song from Sabzevar and that he didn't have the hero of Kelidar in mind at the time of writing it; the song "Adam-e Pooch" is a cover version of "Nahang" by the late Ebrahim Monsefi, an Iranian musician and singer from Bandar Abbas, Iran. Namjoo dedicated the album to Mahmoud Namjoo: To his art filled with respect for life; the title of the album suggests the possibility of drawing inspiration and strength from an ordinary object like a tangerine.
The song "Narengi" makes a reference to the album name and morphs its way from a traditional Sufi song rooted in the Magham music of Torbat-e Jam crying "O God, Help me, Sheikh Ahmad-e Jami, Help me," to Namjoo's own words praising a tagerine.

Namjoo's lyric refers to Reza Khan as an "opium addict, with a bad temper who killed his enemies and brought modernity to Iran." This angered the Iranian pro-monarchists who flooded Namjoo's Facebook page with obscenities against Namjoo. The song, however, is more about how a dictator imposed a notion of modernity on a society, unprepared to absorb it. In a sense, it's a critique of the society and culture in Iran, rather than Reza Khan. Reza Khan in Mohsen Namjoo's official YouTube Roodast in Mohsen Namjoo's official YouTube
