Nicolás Maduro and Donald Trump, Raúl Castro and Marine Le Pen, Viktor Orbán and Evo Morales are united in admiring Putin. This is not an analytical exaggeration but a verifiable observation through the press. Putin, precisely because he has abandoned Whatsapp Mobile Number List that post-Marxist malaise that still affects Cubans and their uncritical followers in Latin America, has found the perfect authoritarian formula for the struggle for global power in the 21st century . His nineteenth-century, Bismarckian and non-Marxist imperial nationalism is the answer sought by the enemies of globalization in the West. Not China, whose capitalism is quite in tune with Western liberalism, nor Cuba, which has not yet managed to overcome the Soviet model, but Russia. In Cuba and, to a lesser extent, Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua, the post-Marxist malaise produces an unavowed Putinism, which is liberated through a nostalgia for real socialism that not even Putin feels. Putin's paradigm, like that of his leading Whatsapp Mobile Number List philosopher Ivan Ilyin, is Silver Age Russia, not Stalin 's USSR . The neo-Soviet Whatsapp Mobile Number List the Cubans or the Bolivarian of the Venezuelans also obstruct connections with the anti-Trumpist left, where it is easier to locate legacies of critical Marxism and even anarchism and Trotskyism. The heterodox tradition of Marxism is more alive in Jacobin or the New Left Review than in Cuba Socialista, the theoretical journal of the Cuban Communist Party. Post-Marxist malaise is chronically expressed in Cuba. The discrepancy between the official state ideology – “Marxism-Leninism” – and the real premises of the government's internal and external policy could not be greater. From the point of view of Soviet Whatsapp Mobile Number List Marxism, Trump, Putin and Maduro would be “bourgeois or petty-bourgeois caudillos”, like Marx himself and then the Muscovite textbooks considered Simón Bolívar or Juan Domingo Perón. But in Cuba, as in Venezuela, ideas end when political friendships begin. Especially, in a prolonged extreme situation like that of both economies in recent years.
