I have no idea. But that is basically a moot point. I am a defender of 
socialism, not capitalism. In the year-end edition of Swans, there is a 
good chance that I will deal with the new forms of TINA I see about me, 
including some of the things I have heard in the past couple of days on 
this list and from Yoshie before that--as well as an interview that Tariq 
Ali did with Doug Henwood. In 1990 Victor Tirado wrote an article arguing 
that the epoch of anti-imperialist revolution is over. Odd that with the 
steady decline of the capitalist system over the past 16 years that we are 
hearing the same sort of thing. Even odder to hear it on Marxmail, which is 
the last place on earth you'd expect to hear it. Maybe not...
