One of the reasons I get annoyed with this debate (technical discussions 
of imperialism) is that it often seems like a weird dogmatic attempt to 
play down the actions of the Soviet bureaucracy and make out they 
weren't as bad as the USA. Explaining to the people of Afghanistan or 
Ukraine why what they were experiencing wasn't technically imperialism 
because [insert economists jargon] is weird, why bother? If I got beaten 
up in the street and had my stuff nicked I really wouldn't want someone 
coming up to me after and patiently explaining why no serious theorist 
would really describe what happened to me as a real mugging.
