            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
    particular individuals become associated with cultural change, be it Jesus,
    Marx or Bill Gates, has in reality very little to do with those individuals.
    Would Karl Marx see anything recognisable in Castro or Zemin?
