Johnny Williams is the author of numerous articles examining culture’s role in politics, social movement mobilization and scientific knowledge production. He is also currently writing The Persistence of White Sociology (Palgrave Macmillan) which explores how conventional sociology as a theory, method and ideology functions to ensure the viability of systemic racism. He believes that Mr. Trump is merely a tool of Neo-conservatives and the governments of Israel and Saudi Arabia who want to dominant the region.
Q: Although European countries, Russia and China have condemned these unilateral measures and they said they want to cooperate with Iran in the economic sphere, but they aren’t capable of fulfilling their obligations due to the domination of the dollar, which has led Iran to react to reduce its commitment to full implementation of Iran's agreement. What is your solution to survive this agreement? How can the parties comply with their obligations?
A: The political relations between Europe, Russia, and China with the U.S. are rapidly changing given the U.S. is a global economic power though its power is waning but it can still wield substantial influence over these nations’ economies. Consequently, they are somewhat reticent to go against U.S., Israeli and Saudi government interest in manufacturing a crisis over the nuclear agreement with Iran. Europeans will probably reluctantly support the U.S. The Russian and Chinese can do what they are doing in Venezuela. They can send advisors with surface to air missiles to deter a military attack so that all parties are force to comply with their obligations.
Q: What can be done for releasing Iranian economy from impact of domination of dollar? Do using national currencies in bilateral and trilateral international exchanges reduce the dollar's impact on the Iranian economy?
A: Stop trading in dollars.
Q: Iran has always emphasized the economy without oil or at least organized oil revenues, but in practice there is a strong dependence of Iran's economy on oil, whose negative consequences can be seen in the easy economic boycott of Iran, so what is required for organizing oil revenues and forwarding Iran to regular tax system?
A: Iran can begin to diversify its economy. Green economies are the future so it should begin using its technologies and oil revenue to convert to a sustainable national economy not grounded in fossil fuel sales. See what Cuba, China, the Germans, and Scandinavians are doing to create independent economies not dependent entirely on global trade.
Q: what needs to be done to make Iranian economy able to use the resources as much as possible and create product diversity? Considering that US sanctions targeting the Iranian people, their livelihoods and employment, what do you think a country needs to do to reduce its dependence on the production of basic and industrial goods?
A: Form of economic block with other countries in the region and around the world, For example, China, Cuba, Turkey, Russia, etc.
Q: Some believe that the United States wants to boycott emerging powers such as China, India, Turkey, and so on. And Iran's oil embargo sanction will boycott the global economy. What do you think?
A: No doubt the U.S. government has long term aims to counter the emerging countries economic and military power. See the Project for New American Century to get more detail. Here’s the link: http://www.oldamericancentury.org/pnac.htm
Q: At the moment, the United States is bullied by the dollar, and the US involvement in this area is not limited to Iran, and includes many countries such as Russia. Is this correct from your point of view?
A: As a mentioned, U.S. global economic power is waning but it still projects substantial influence over other world economies, including that of Russia. In this regard, the U.S. uses its economic clout to force other countries to go along with its objectives.
Q: Washington end oil waivers and Iran was seeking to exchange oil with the basic needs of the people, what is consequences of that in aspect of human rights?
A: The U.S. has a long and continuous history of using economic sanctions against citizens to “encourage” them to overthrow their governments for a friendlier one towards U.S. interests. Unfortunately, the U.S. has little regard for basic human rights, even with its borders, so appealing to it for basic human decency and rights will fall on deaf ears.
Q: Some people in Iran believe that negotiating with Trump have any result, because the other party does not adhere to any commitment. Do you agree with that idea?
Yes. Mr. Trump is merely a tool of Neo-conservatives and the governments of Israel and Saudi Arabia who want to dominant the region.
Q: what are the political, economic and social consequences of chaos and war in the region?
A: It will destabilize the region in order for U.S. to control the oil resources so it can dictates terms to Europe, Russia, India, Turkey, China, and Brazil. The region will remain ungovernable until all of its resources are depleted.
