The Arana column, The Times says, "is one in a series of articles examining prospects for postwar Central America." This first in the series, written by a Managuan, must have been delivered with the Sandinistas' "blessings."
The article, in true communist style, finds it so very difficult to accept the "private sector" or "opponents" as political, participative forces.
In its own words, it says, "At this point in our history, favoring the entrepreneurial part of the private sector at the expense of the popular sectors would be beyond any government's ability."
A second article, "Wary Optimism in El Salvador," written by Arnoldo Villafuerte, a businessman in El Salvador (Oct. 27), more realistically describes the issues and possible solutions confronting the people of Central America.
