"In general, the Scandinavian countries did not have the necessary military power and administrative capacity to establish and operate their own colonies. They had to ride the wave of the great colonial powers in order to enjoy the benefits offered by imperialism. There was no difference, however, between the Scandinavian countries and the great colonial powers regarding their attitude towards colonialism. European colonialism can be seen as a unified whole in which large and small countries played different roles. Some managed territories and opened up markets, others provided capital, built infrastructure, or transported goods to and from the colonies. The Scandinavian countries earned large sums by navigating in the wake of the major colonial powers." —from Riding the Wave

In this episode I interview Torkil Lauesen, longtime anti-imperialist activist and author of two books including “The Global Perspective: Reflections on Imperialism and Resistance” and his latest “The Principal Contradiction”. We discuss Maoism, both historically and in the modern age, the election of Joe Biden, and we speak briefly about his upcoming book “Riding the Wave” 
Cover of The Principal Contradiction by Torkil Lauesen
"...Torkil Lauesen’s The Principal Contradiction is something of a breath of fresh air since it is concerned with centering and demystifying dialectical reason and, specifically, its iteration as dialectical materialism."
Frontpage of The Principal Contradiction. By Torkil Lauesen.
In The Principal Contradiction, Torkil Lauesen introduces readers to the philosophy of dialectical materialism as a tool for changing the world.
Dialectical materialism allows us to understand the dynamics of world history, the concept of contradiction building a bridge between theory and practice, with the principal contradiction telling us where to start.

In discussing imperialism and international solidarity, the panel is a contribution to a vital debate on the why and how of liberation struggle.

On imperialisme and globalization
"Part One focuses on political history, Part Two on political economy, and Part Three on political practice. There are also two appendices: one on Marx's theory of value, and one on Foucault’s theory of power. Both are essential to understanding my approach, but they are included as appendices to avoid disrupting the book’s narrative."

In 2016 Torkil Lauesen published a book in Danish "Det Globale Perspektiv" about a global view of the world and the development from colonialism untill today and trying to answer the important question "What is to be done".

In this article, we aim to demonstrate that the low prices of goods produced in the global South and the attendant modest contribution of its exports to the Gross Domestic Product of the North conceals the real dependence of the latter’s economies on low-waged Southern labor. We argue that the relocation of industry to the global South in the past three decades has resulted in a massive increase of transferred value to the North. The principal mechanisms for this transfer are the repatriation of surplus value by means of foreign direct investment, the unequal exchange of products embodying different quantities of value, and extortion through debt servicing.
