However, this "general tendency" should be positively assessed as 
against the "general tendency" half a century ago. Classes move and 
change their mind slowly. Particularly when they are the privileged 
ruling classes of the relatively privileged "Golden billion". 
Brzezinski had this in mind by the mid 2000s, when he asked where was 
the US foreign policy heading. Our question should be "can it head 
elsewhere"? And, if it doesn't, what is our duty? All inter-
imperialist wars are, of course, out of question for a socialist. But 
the real situation calls -or should call- for some mindstorming along 
this line.
