Yes, the statement sounds a bit absurd--- although not much more than 
arguments I've heard from Bandera Roja (the Maoist group which seems to 
have come from the hills to the elite campuses) that the problem with 
Chavez is that he turns class against class. Someone suggested privately 
that it might have been penned by Petras or someone on this list or that it 
was a hoax but I do know who the sender is.
