A nice tribute to the 2 recently deceased Marxists. But now I see where
Chris Bailey got his insights about the "disaster" that Lenin's
"Imperialism" has been. Once again: "Imperialism" provided the
theoretical framework for the Zimmerwald movement and nothing else. To
characterize this call to action an economics treatise is just wrong.
