Isn't the basis for Lenin's perspective on a "epoch of wars and revolution
etc" to be found in his analysis of imperialism? Yet, I thought you were
critical of Lenin's theory of imperialism, including his conception of the
importance of the export of capital. I hope I am not mis-interpreting you
here. Without a theory of imperialism, what would be the basis for the
understanding that we have long been in an "epoch of wars and revolutions
etc."? Also: can a period that some claim has been going on for close to
a century be said to be an "epoch"?

In solidarity, Jerry
