An Actual Sociology Question

This one comes in from a friend. It was a homework question.

"If the structuring forces of capitalism (however disjunct) were implicated with those of colonialism (however hybrid), and if the deterritorialization movements of anti-colonialist sentiment and early decolonization emerge concomitantly with the revolutionary, anti-capitalist destratifications of Marxian social systems and state communist regimes, how and to what extent are the transnational fluctuations of diasporas and diasporized nation-states inextricable from the neocolonialist reterritorializations of global capitalism (such as free trade agreements, world financial markets, and the international divisions of labor, production and profit)? "

Sociology, making the obvious tedious.
