Might I add, without bothering anyone here, that even a petty-
bourgeois nationalist revolution such as the one in 1952 solved still 
another problem, a problem that people outside Bolivia (and certainly 
in the US) could never possibly imagine a national issue?  That 
problem was low stature.  Yes, low stature, a byproduct of 
malnutrition.  After 1952, Bolivians began to be taller.

This has little to do with socialism, certainly.  But I think that 
malnutrition does not make good Petrograd Red Guards.
