No, the only one so far *upholding* some kind of progressive
and democratic orientation on this question precisely is Adam.
*Your* orientation is a pro-sociel-imperialist one and very
reactionary indeed.

Only, Adam confuses things with that (bourgeois/Trot) "Stalinism"
term which obliterates the sharp difference between SOCIALISM
one the one hand (a deformed socialism, for instance, such as
was the one in the SU under Stalin) and SOCIAL-IMPERIALISM,
on the other - maening, the system over which Brezhnev etc
ruled.

You need to understand the correctnesss of Mao's analysis
in order to see these things clearly.

This is also a matter of class standpoint, of course.
