Iran's NNC News Interviews Lendman

Honest discussion of important issues.

NNC's Iman Soleimani conducted the interview. Occupy Wall Street, America's sham electoral process, the so-called Arab Spring, Zionism, and money power were discussed.

NNC (Namavaran Network Corporation) initially operated as a cultural and publishing institute. It trained bilingual journalists working with foreign media.

More recently it began "giving press service(es) to foreign media by recruiting its trained journalists." It's now one of Iran's largest media operations. It works collaboratively with major TV and News services.

Questions and answers are below. Editing was done as needed. Final comments follow.

NNC: What do you think about Occupy Wall Street? Is this movement a popular and spontaneous one or predetermined?

Lendman: I was thrilled a year ago September when OWS emerged in Manhattan and spread like wildfire across the country and abroad in Europe. 

In America, it was the first mass activism against a corrupt, dysfunctional, predatory system since the 1960s. It's too early to tell what's coming, if what started has legs, or has any chance to succeed. 

I wrote numerous times about OWS. It's the mother of all struggles. It pits people against money power. Powerful financial institutions run America and most other countries. 

Unless challenged and stopped, nothing meaningful can be accomplished. Real change won't happen. Money power is omnipotent and corrosive. Expunging it matters more than anything else.

Doing it will take many years of committed struggle. So far, minor skirmishes alone occurred. Little was accomplished. I'm still hopeful for real results ahead. 

Will committed activists stay the course? Will many others be encouraged to join them? Will strong leaders emerge? These and other questions remain unanswered.

NNC: In your opinion, has the Occupy movement emerged from the Arab Spring or from the economic crisis and the other problems in the USA?

Lendman: The so-called Arab Spring is a Western term, not a Middle East one. So far it accomplished nothing, and in many respects things are worse. 

America manipulated everything to assure it maintains regional dominance. Issues are real. Gross injustices must be addressed and changed. Swapping one despot for another accomplishes nothing.
