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.
