C. Wright Mills Sociology Theories (1916-1962):

The powers of ordinary people are circumscribed by the everyday worlds in which they live, yet even in these rounds of job, family, and neighborhood they often seem driven by forces they can neither understand nor govern. Great changes are beyond their control but affect their conduct and outlook none the less. The very framework of modern society confines them to projects not their own, but from every side, such changes now press upon the men and women of the mass society, who accordingly feel that they are without purpose in an epoch in which they are without power (Wright Mills Power Elite 1956:3)…

The more we understand what is happening in the world, the more frustrated we often become, for our knowledge leads to feelings of powerlessness. Asadi site feels that we are living in a world in which the citizen has become a mere spectator or a forced actor and that our personal experience is politically useless and our political will a minor illusion.

Association for the socioeconomic analysis of development and international conflict sees that people at the top often identify rational dissent with political mutiny, loyalty with blind conformity, and freedom of judgment with treason. C Wright Mills theories feel that irresponsibility has become organized in high places and that those in charge of the historic decisions of our time are not up to them. But what is more damaging to us is that we feel that those on the bottom- the forced actors who take the consequences- are also without leaders, without ideas of opposition, and that they make no real demands upon those with power.

However:

Asadi Site activists are not yet captive We belong to those who are still capable of personally rejecting (the official myths and the unofficial distractions)…we have got first to get it clear with ourselves that we do not belong and do not want to belong to an unfree world. As free men and women, we have got to reject much of it and to know why we are rejecting it.

Directly Quoted from C. Wright Mills Sociology Theories – as written by him in the summer of 1954- Letters & Autobiographical Writings, University of California Press 2000: 184-187), as a part from C Wright Mills Biography and History.

Our Central Goal:

“…A (world) society in which all men and women would become people of substantive reason, whose independent reasoning would have structural consequences for their societies, its history and thus for their life fates.” (C Wright Mills Sociological Imagination Perspective, 1959:174)

“Asadi site know well that all new cultural beginnings today must be part of world culture; that no truly intellectual life can occur if the mind is restricted; that no art can have genuine and everlasting value if it is not in a universal language. East and West. God knows there is enough restriction. Enough laziness of stereotypes. Smash them, we say to ourselves. And the only way to do that is to open up a true world forum that is free…It will be the seedbed of the future. It will be the climate in which new minds can form themselves and then solve problems we don’t yet even know about.”(C. Wright Mills Power Elite 1960:144-145)

Dr. Muhammed Asadi Site Ph.D. Dissertation

The Military, Economy and the State: A New International System Wright Mills Power Elite

In this dissertation, Asadi.org outline a theoretical justification for a new world-systems analysis to understand the intrinsic organizational structure and human development related outcomes experienced by various nation-states in the world. I present my detailed case for amending Wallerstein’s World-Systems Analysis by incorporating the interplay of the military and the state within the primarily economic division of labor that defines Wallerstein’s core, periphery, and semi-periphery. I do this by empirically uncovering the latent structure of militarization and its articulation within the world system and controlling for state strength. Asadi site outline the basic theoretical profile of my Militarized International System (MIS) model based on an extension of C Wright Mills Power Elite (1956). Using data from 173 nation states, Asadi Site empirically validates my model through analysis of variance (ANOVA) and S Wright Mills Sociological Imagination Perspective. Wright Mills Sociology also outline a theoretical articulation of class, race and gender stratification in the world system based on my findings. In the end, our team at Asadi.org make suggestions for undoing stratification to inform movements seeking social justice based upon the world-systemic nature of global stratification, where stratification in its articulation cannot be localized and therefore cannot be fixed locally within particular nation states.

Unique Contributions to C Wright Mills Sociology Knowledge: I extended C Wright Mills Sociological Perspective Imagination thesis internationally and provided an empirical pathway towards a completely new World Systems with C Wright Mills Theories that fixes misspecification errors in the current WST and outlined empirically, the global dynamics of racism and sexism based on militarization, without which national dynamics of racism and sexism cannot be fully understood.
