Maoism confuses USSR analysts because it does not fit within boundaries of dogma. Maoism requires revolution every seven or eight years to prevent hierarchies or regional leaderships from solidifying. The USA is in forefront of modern thought: Monday in the US, Tuesday in Germany, Friday in the USSR. Future of the USSR is in the hands of a younger generation that includes 20 million intelligensia - trained in science, keeping political views to themselves for now, but visible by 1990. Detente is a Mutual Suicide Prevention Pact. Very interesting Q+A session.
