We must be talking at cross purposes, because essentially this is
precisely what I was saying- cultural change does not happen in a vacuum, as
a result of the deliberate activities of particular individuals. Whether

Marx or Bill Gates, has in reality very little to do with those individuals.
Would Karl Marx see anything recognisable in Castro or Zemin?
