I like the rest of what I wrote, but on this point I agree with you  
and should have immediately corrected it.

I started to answer Andrew on your side and then looked again at what  
you said and tried to Procrustean bed it. The size and strengths of  
capitalist countries in relation to each other is certainly important.

As for "imperialist economist trend," I hope that is not your own  
Procrustean Bed for those who argue that the Theory of Permanent  
Revolution, which is based above all on national struggles, has  
relevance for the underdeveloped world.
