S. Popov: Well, I actually am in complete accord with the conclusions of Marxist-Leninist theory with regard to capitalism. Everything that was said in the past, discovered, it's all true. When Marx writes in "Das Kapital" that a capitalist will agree to anything that provides him with a guaranteed one hundred per cent profit, that's the truth. We see that if... if imperialism is spoiling for war, isn't that what we are seeing? We see that in Libya, and in Iraq, and in Afghanistan... all of that is... those are all manifestations of that same policy of monopoly, no? We see how the financial bigwigs are living high off the hog in this country [the US] and how the ordinary American's real income keeps on shrinking and shrinking, isn't that exploitation of humans by humans? It really is, yes. Yes, that's the way things are. But let me ask you: where are those much-vaunted advantages of socialism, if socialism keeps on turning into an evil system which in fact exploits humans in exactly the same way? That is, we have yet to see socialism with a human face, as proclaimed by Gorbachev. Yeah. And in fact, while we're on the subject of Gorbachev, well, he's the politician, of course, who brought the country to a state of collapse, since he never had a political platform, and even now he still doesn't really know why he... why he did everything that he did. Perhaps the world is fated to adopt the Chinese system, to take the route that China has taken, in which the Communist Party keeps every person under control, while at the same time providing the opportunity to earn enough for a piece of chicken or a sewing machine. Maybe. At least, I see no better model.
