94. I don't know, effective protection from the 1% predators has not been

seen in modern times, except possibly for some remote tribal folks who have not had their homelands, culture, and way of life destroyed and stolen by the sociopathic, greed driven 1% yet.

Cuba has done what they needed to do, while under constant, severe economic and propaganda attack by 1% predators pretty much since they overthrew the 1% implemented government of Batista. If the 1% was not punishing Cuba for not letting them own the country, Cuba would certainly be more free, prosperous, and democratic right now, but since they are under attack by the 1% 24/7 365, they have to do what they have to do in order to remain sovereign. (And one thing they had to do was to establish several generations of educated Cubans by providing free education to the populace.)

I believe that Cuba will slowly ease into a controlled social democracy as it learns by trial and error how to do this while still attempting to protect itself from 1% imperialism. The 1% will always be trying to take over the country, and will try to prevent the success of Cuba's establishment of a successful, working social democracy. If Cuba is not successful in fending off the !%, and establishing a more prosperous social democracy within the next decade, I predict that the attacks by the 1% will wear Cuba down, and Cuba will become the sole property of the *World Economic Dictatorship of the 1%*.

The provincial elitism, na´vetÚ, and sense of entitlement and superiority over the dark skinned peoples of the world, expressed by conservative Americans who have no experience with, and little or no educational background in, the histories and cultures of other countries, would be funny if it wasn't life threatening.

"Iffen it's right for gawd and "Murica, it's right for everyone! We need to kill 'em all and bring 'em Fox News, McDonald's, and teach 'em about the one true gawd, and his democracy!"

Castro's Family
Fidel's private life with his wife and sons is so secret
that even the CIA is left to wonder

Fuentes said the show of austerity by Castro and those near him is part of the
hypocrisy of a system in which the elite live better than the average Cuban but are
required to project an image of equality.

``You see the house of a top official all worn on the outside, badly in need of
paint, the grass all a mess,'' he said. ``But inside he'll have two television sets, a
VCR, a nice stereo, a new fridge.''

``Of course, anything the hijos de papi want they get -- even if no
other Cuban ever sees this stuff. Computers, nice houses, vacations, you name
it. But luxuries? With few exceptions, not really,'' said Fuentes.

``I think that when this ends, most people in Cuba will be outraged
by the relative comforts of the leadership,'' he added, "and most people in Miami
will be surprised by their low level of life.''


I've always found that it's really not a good idea to believe everything I read in US 1% owned RW media...cuz sometimes they're so convincing that they can even convince a nation to let a chimpanzee lead them in in war, and conquer a nation, simply so that the 1% can control the conquered nation and exploit and profit from their labor, and resources, such as oil.
