So I'm just mostly confused about how to feel about this. On the one hand he did give some benefits of the oil in Venezuela to Chavez, but he never changed the actual system in place, and profited from it.

I am interested in seeing what this means for the world as a whole.

I too felt confused, but now I'm just slightly annoyed. Apparently the US is being blamed by some for his death...I don't recall any news reports about us showering his home with Twinkies. :\
