16. Completely out of context and a misquote. (Plus, I didn't say "workers paradise".)
Edited on Sun Apr-27-08 07:24 AM by Mika
If you are going to take sentences out of context of the discussion, then you should at least find one that uses the term in question.
Problem is - you can't find it. Because I've never called Cuba a "workers paradise".
In comparing Cuba to the RW murderous US client regimes mentioned in the discussion, (from which you extracted one sentence out of context), it is a political & social paradise. No death squads, no kidnappings, no disappeared, room for political expression down to the grass roots, universal health care for all, universal higher ed for all, national sovereignty, and more.

I need someone to describe to me what a "workers paradise" might be. A place where workers don't have to work?
If that's the case, then Cuba is most certainly not a "workers paradise" because Cubans work very hard to create, maintain, and upgrade their political and social infrastructure.
