10 X doesn't scratch the surface. Democracy is not only about voting and
proceedures but fundementally it's about power and how and in whose
interests its exercized. Also, as Lenin pointed out in an earlier marxist
discussion of democracy - only bourgois democracy is about majorities and
minorites, real democracy is about classes. Fundementally state monoploy
captialism is in power in the US and the working class is in power in Cuba.
This in no way argues against perfecting socialist democracy - which both
Lenin and Castro concentrated/consentrate on.

And gee Louis why do I agree with you so much of the time.....are you
slipping......

And further, if you ever tweak my nose, and I find out about it, you'll get
a swift kick back....<deadpan>
