Fidel Castro certainly appears to truly believe that we are on the verge of entering once more what will be revolutionary times. He is convinced that the marginalization of countless millions in the Third World, and particularly in Latin America, will continue with the “savage capitalism” of today’s globalization, and the neoliberal economic thrust, both acting forcefully and in close combination with a U.S. hegemony rejecting any trends toward international justice that might hurt that country’s national interests. Under these circumstances, in his view, there will be a continuation of major social disturbances such as those seen recently in Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Uruguay, and elsewhere in the region, as well as more major political upheavals such as Colombia’s insurgency, the Zapatista movement in Mexico, and in the more debatable rebirth of Sendero Luminoso in Peru.
