In answer to Brian Shannon, I take note that Brian thinks "old
schemas and stereotypes" are "what we have learned from the
Russian, Chinese, Cuban, Algerian, Nicaraguan, Guatemalan, Iran
(Mossadegh), ... all of Trotsky and most of Lenin (the part from
the April Theses on)."
As for me, I prefer to stand on my statement, which Brian, in his
"The revolutionary process now under way in Venezuela is teaching
us much about the whole problematic of transitional regimes, as,
for an earlier generation (that includes me) Cuba did, and
continues to do. The process within each social (state) formation
is unique in important ways. Events in Bolivia in the coming
months and years will teach us all a lot more about the mutual
interrelationship of the national, indigenous and socialist
revolutions in Latin America."
And speaking of stereotypes, it would be hard to match those
expressed by Robert Montgomery in his latest dispatch.
