  Here you go again: imperialism is invincible. Imperialism is invincible. 
Imperialism is invincible. 
  That is your one single credo. 

  Now listen: China _did_ make a socialist revolution (although a distorted one 
by a petty bourgeois leadership). But the socialist revolution did not can 
cannot by itself solve the problem of lagging far, far behind the most 
industrialised countries. China's socialist revolution gave it additional means 
to advance, and they use it big. You don't see any other country of the "Third 
World" which does so much investments in infrastructure (you should have

   And you tell the workers of the world over and over and over again that 
imperialism is invincible, which also means that capitalism is invincible.

"socialism" in a prison?
