Still a Marxist

President Fernando Henrique Cardoso unabashedly stands by everything he ever wrote and insists that, given the same circumstances, he would write it all the same way again. His critics on both sides of the political spectrum are troubled by his refusal to apologize for either his past or his present. Most Latin American leaders are trained in law, political science or economics, while Cardoso is very much a sociologist. As a sociologist, Cardoso has a profound understanding of class and group differences.
