Cuba is at the point where left socialists fumble the ball and think in the hard duality of capitalism and communism. Marx warned against premature constructs, that was in the nineteenth century. Now, however, the time has come to design viable systems as the American system falls apart. This modeling tool has dozens of variants. The model instance here is structurally basic but needs a new idea of an International, and an eco-socialist content.  We have a lot posts on our DMNC model which is tailor made for Cuba ‘as is’ if everyone can stop listening to the capitalist hyenas ready to pounce with development bait. We can apply this to the US  in the discussion of Cuba.

Cuba has a golden opportunity in fact: it has gone through the expropriation process and can in principle design a version of our ‘democratic market neo-communism’ which can be adapted to just about any variant of capitalism, pseudo-democracy, pseudo-socialism, etc,… Continue reading “Repost: Cuba’s golden opportunity…& Venezuela”

  The Economic War Against Cuba

The absurdity of the Cuba strategy is grotesquely obvious from this example of it in action.
In the end, the issue of Cuba will undermine the US, not Cuba, which just might survive the collapse of the Yankee colossus.

Thus, according to Opera Mundi, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the Office Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) the government agency tasked with enforcing the blockade against Cuba seized the funds a British NGO, the Cuba Solidarity Campaign, attempted to wire to purchase 100 copies of this book from Monthly Review Press. (1) OFAC also demanded that this same NGO describe its relationship with Cuba in detail. This episode is emblematic of the absurd lengths to which the U.S. government will go to stop the world from dealing with Cuba.

Cuba: reactionary protests flop as ‘red scarves’ rally to defend revolution

In the end, the much anticipated opposition demonstration of 15N in Cuba did not materialise. The organisers’ ties with Washington and with counterrevolutionary and terrorist elements removed any legitimacy from their call to mobilise. Selective police repression did the rest.
