Comments: Cuba Copes

Over recent years' blogs I have, quite accidentally, encountered informative stories on the Cuban "forced withdrawal from Soviet subsidies" and the Cuban government priorities over the past fifteen years to replace that international former subsidy with Cuba's "small" agricultural resources nationwide. The "Cuban example" is cited by "small is best" "back-to-the-land" local-level non-profit agriculture revitalization organizations here in the U.S. and, I suppose, elsewhere. Of course for the USA's corporate media marketing presentation---which drives, and follows, the lifestyle of the U.S. citizenry--- "small is best" is an oxymoron. Thus it is not only because Cuba is socialist that the US media ignores this issue.

Maybe Cuba is going to show that socialism *can* work in the end. A down to earth kind of socialism of intelligent design ...

If anything good comes out of the Bush reign, it will the spread of responsive government throughout Latin America. A century from now he may be remembered as the Bolivar of the 21st century, uniting Latin America as it shakes loose the yoke of the USA (both the caudillos and the CAFTAs, etc.)
