I hope Mine will find her time to answer. This question is the most important
one on the national question that has been posed on this list for many weeks.

Don't worry, Richard, if Mine can't answer I will take her post, and I have
more than a hunch that my answer will c.c. hers.

Besides practical pressures upon each one of us, most of our theoretical
debates on third-world and imperialism (Kossovo, East Timor, Kurdistan, etc.)
are spinning around this issue.

A good one, Richard.
