Louis: Kevin, this is a Marxism list. A number of people on it,
including yourself, have only a smattering of Marxist knowledge,
and I suppose there are some basic points that need to be made over and
over again.

Marxism does not analyze the behavior of "Costa Rica" or "Honduras."
These countries are divided into classes and the interest of one class
are contrary to the other. I, of course, am speaking of the proletariat
and the bourgeoisie. Marxism provides a class analysis. This is its
purpose. For further reading on this topic, I suggest Karl Marx's
"Communist Manifesto" which should be available in your local library.
