In reality the notion that Cuba is "Stalinist" or "state capitalist" is 
something highly heterodox. If you develop your own approach to Marxism, 
as most of the non-party subscribers to Marxmail have, this is about the 
last thing that would occur to you. For example, the average non-party 
socialist admires Che Guevara and would find Sam Farber's mudslinging 
piece written on the anniversary of his death most off-putting and 
really quite weird. I of course set up Marxmail to have a conversation 
with non-party socialists and not those who belong to "Leninist" groups 
or those who have been permanently warped by their experience in such 
groups.
