Then we have the developments such as Pussy Riot, Occupy etc. Not only Pussy Riot's courage and audacity but that they are reading Marxist material and getting millions of people contacting them and talking against capitalism. The knot of history will be retied as events develop.
This capitalist offensive will not go on forever. I think that most likely with a coming new capitalist collapse like 2008 the worldwide explosion will come. And in such a collapse the US working class will be pushed kicking and screaming into the battle field. US capitalism with all its madness will have to increasingly take the stick to its own working class. If it is this lifeless non human multi- millionaire robot creature Romney in the White House the anger would especially explode. The US working class with all sorts of confusions will enter the field of battle and this will enormously weaken the capitalist offensive world wide. It will most likely halt and throw back this offensive and in doing so place on the agenda and in the consciousness of the mass of the working class worldwide once more this great question of history: What is the alternative to capitalism? Is there an alternative to capitalism? Can we make socialism work?
I think the struggles I mention above with the workers prepared to take violent action is the storm lightening of the great storm to come. There will be all sorts of confusions. We will have to try and avoid ultra leftism as well as sectarianism and opportunism as this movement rises to its feet. The capitalists will use their normal divide and rule tactics to derail the working class offensive, and whip up racism, sexism, nationalism and anti-immigrant feeling but the overall tendency will be for us to unite against the common enemy.
Timing is very difficult but things are ripening and the capitalist offensive with the extreme stupidity and over confidence of the international bourgeois, especially the US bourgeois, has to be kept in mind. And on top of these developments we can have wars such as an Israeli/US attack on Iran.
We live in a time of unparalleled challenge and also opportunity for the working class.
