Carlos Alberto Montaner:

Twenty-first-century socialism in Latin America actually consists of five socialisms, as many as the countries that constitute that caudillo-led, anti-republican, chaotic and authoritarian little world.

They unite in anti-Americanism, in the conviction that individuals must be at the service of the State, not the opposite, in their contempt for the market and in the superstition that the caudillo knows exactly what benefits or hurts all citizens, but they're very different.

The governments that compose it are Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua.

He goes on to explain what each hopes to get from their socialist fantasy. This will not end well for them.
