What is Soviet-style socialism? You mean like 
North Korea and Cuba with planned economies? 
Maybe they should get with the program and 
introduce market socialism aka capitalism that 
Walter is so fascinated with and now Fred Feldman 
feels is inevitable for Cuba as well.

I guess I am just a racist or something and 
prefer the music of dead white European males.
