Sorry, it may have been me not articulating myself properly, but you've 
misunderstood me. I said that Castro DID create welfare state capitalism 
after the revolution, which is broadly the system we have in place now in 
Cuba - that is, I'm saying Cuba is State Capitalist, not a degenerated 
workers' state, or socialist, or bureaucratic collectivist. I thank you for 
your brief history of South America, but it wasn't really neccessary.

Callum.
