He is a socialist, but very different than Chavez.
I personally believe there are two kinds of socialism:
1. Socialism that wants a super-powerful state that controls everything.
2. Socialism that just wants social order in their countries like providing education and health but not buying private enterprises and being dictators.
Something I want to share... FARC claim that they are marxists and all the things, but if you see, they are the ones who most spread radical capitalism in Colombia. They sell and buy drugs in a private way, their crimes are private and the areas they use for drug cultivating are also private. So, are they really socialist?
