The Atlantic, sobre el chavismo en contexto latinoamericano:
“Contrary to the clichés, Cuba, the biggest beneficiary of Chavez’ largesse, never put all of its strategic eggs in one basket. After learning the bitter lessons of excessive dependence on Spain, the United States, and later, the Soviet Union, Fidel and Raul Castro likewise recognized that Hugo Chavez was to be a transitional figure in Venezuelan history, even if the party they helped him to build continues to dominate politics in Venezuela.
Chavez tried to make Caracas the second home, after Havana, of anti-imperial Latin America and he did so quite clearly with Fidel’s blessing. But he likely knew that among both his admirers and detractors in the region, he fell short of that goal.”
