And a question for John Riddell and the Socialist Voice team:

If you have any considerations about what these discussions have
to do with current discussions going in Cuba at present, it would
be of interest to many readers right now. The world has evolved in
ways quite different from the ones Che thought that it would take
during his lifetime. The fall of the Soviet Union, the victory of
the Vietnamese liberation struggle, and China and Vietnam's very
extensive development of the private sector in their economies 
have had remarkable accomplishments. However, they are also very
contradictory in many ways. John's detailed discussion is one we
can all appreciate. Yet he doesn't make any comments on whatever 
conclusions he draws about the numerous changes which we are now
observing in Cuba now. I'm sure readers of these messages would
be interested in his thinking about these contemporary matters.

Thanks,
