There is no doubt that the world lost its balance of power. In this period full of serious consequences for the human race, the domination of the USA, which is now clear and open, could not have taken place without the changes that had taken place on the European political map. The same happens with the brutal participation of the American military apparatus in the attainment of political objectives.
The dissolution of the Warsaw Pact effectively took away from the Americans a great deal of weight in Europe. They could get into the adventure of the Gulf. With their victory, they want to consecrate their dominant position in the world. This situation is fraught with danger for the people, particularly in the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans. The victory speeches held after the barbaric bombings against the civilian population of Iraq and the massacres of women and children overflow familiar expressions: "the greatness of the USA", now able to handle the destinies of the world alone. There is no doubt about these intentions. Its action seeks to obtain world domination by military means. It is a new greater danger for humanity. It is also the objective result of the "new economic policy" and the "new thinking".
Global thinking led the USSR, a great socialist power, to a global catastrophe. The tragic nature of the events appeared totally clear when the power of the Soviets was destroyed. These were developed according to a rhythm that did not even allow time to repeal the treaties of friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance concluded between the Soviet Union and the GDR, which continued in force until the Treaty 2 + 4 was signed  .
Kohl stated that the unification took place in a short, luminous moment of world history and could not have taken place before or after it. That moment was not a product of chance. The conditions were created very consciously.
Refusing to characterize the facts that develop today as they are, would have serious consequences. It is about the class struggle worldwide. This is the necessary starting point to analyze the causes of the defeat of the community of socialist states. Without that, one can only end up with theories constructed according to their own ends, such as those that speak of the collapse of a socialist model.
Those who reject this view are simply unwilling or unable to judge events in terms of class. It is true that the 1989 demonstrations were very important and expressed real discontent. This does not prevent me from repeating, with the seriousness that fits the subject, what I said in 1991. It was and still is a mistake to believe that the changes of 1989 took place immediately. Everyone who had this conviction should leave without hesitation. The changes of 1989 resulted from a radical transformation of world politics. This is what can be understood today even more clearly than at the time. This transformation resulted in turn from the new orientations adopted by Gorbachev and the Soviet leadership.
Gorby's proclamations dissipated. Millions of people, particularly the inhabitants of the former Soviet Union, will suffer for a long time the consequences of this policy. In the society of wild competition, which touches us today in luck, there will be no place for a stable social opening. The facts show it now. Capitalism, where man is a wolf for man, in the image and likeness of the current situation in the FRG, does not represent the alternative to a socially just world. That is why I do not feel comforted by the events of 1989/90, more than in the fact that they show that the socialist idea is not dead at all. Many call this a thought away from reality. They show only their incomprehension of historical processes or their incorrigible positioning in anti-socialism or anti-Marxism.
