Cuba’s Government Unique in Latin America:

According to The Economist’s “The World in 2007” Cuba leads Latin America in repression.

Yes, that free indoctrination they call education and all that free healthcare comes at a very expensive price.

Cuba is ranked 124 out of 165 countries as it relates to bourgeois measurements like electoral process and pluralism, functioning of government, political participation, political culture and civil liberties.

Cuba was ranked dead last among Latin American countries, in fact it is the only authoritarian country in Latin America. Yet another triumph for the Cuban Revolution!

With King Raul the benevolent and pragmatic succeeding his older brother King Fidel the Windbag and perhaps opening up the country for economic reform and instituting a Tropical Chinese Model, there’s a chance that Cuba’s ranking will change in the near future.

China was ranked 139. Viet Nam who has recently embraced free-market reforms a-la China ranked 145. So you see, with the Chinese Model, Cuba can easily move up the ranks of the authoritarian block.
