Some on this list mentioned their admiration for the work of Samir Amin. If they like Amin, I should think that they should at least have some thoughts on de-linking, South-South trade, etc. which have been central to Amin's anti-imperialism. Just imagine how the North Korean "Juche" might work, if it were practiced in alliance with a number of Third World governments which collectively repudiated international debts & were working to create a new regional South-South aid & trade regime.

For such a program to emerge on our political horizon, there would have to be a number of revolutionary movements in the Third World that actually controlled their states. Would American activists involved in Seattle & A16, currently happy working with the AFL-CIO, support such movements if they emerged?
