But while looking at an article where Perez Roque claimed his Master was doing much better, I spotted this little headline:
Cuba Defends Art of Thinking
You cannot make this stuff up.
I just had to look, having read the book
These guys would be funny if they hadn’t ruined a country and subjected its people to 48 years of misery and captivity.
Cuba Defends Art of Thinking (as long as you think what they tell you to think)(thinking like a communist is an learned art form because it requires for the thinker to suspend reality ,go against all the laws of nature into the absurd realm of egalitarian collectivism (slavery))
Paris, Mar 12 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque assured on Monday that southern countries are victims of an absurd and cruel international order that impedes development, peace and progress. (yes, Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia and now Ecuador)
Perez Roque talked today on behalf of the Non-Aligned Countries Movement (NAM), currently presided over by Cuba, at the UN Education, Science and Culture Organization (UNESCO) in Paris.
In his speech, the Cuban official made a call to "work together" against privatization of intellectual production,(notice they don’t use the word property as in intellectual property because that would be admitting that there is such a thing as property) "turning knowledge into an instrument to perpetuate inequality." (yes, knowledge is bad. The truth is bad. Everybody must be kept equally in the dark, and fed propaganda so they’re equally ignorant, those with knowledge of the truth get locked up)
"Value has become alternative, and banality and trade have become normal. The art of thinking has become dissident while mediocrity rules," he said.( If that doesn’t describe Cuba, I don’t know what does: “Thinking has become dissident while mediocrity rules”. Well now that I think about it, mediocrity doesn’t rule, utter incompetence does.)
The island s minister referred that "to replace citizens with consumers is an operation implemented to establish the world order of dominant powers," which threaten survival of our species, exhausting natural resources, polluting, deforesting and making impossible life on the planet. (No, you need to replace citizens with slaves,to be kept starving for food an knowledge. Giving the slaves no homes, transportation is good for the planet)
That includes encouraging insatiable consumption of a ruling class in a world with 852 million starving people, two billion without electricity and over two million people who have never talked on a telephone, stated the official. (11 million of which are in Cuba)
He said that Europe, United States and Japan generate over 80 percent of all scientific publications and more than 90 percent of patents and 72 percent of international scientists live and work in industrialized countries. (admitting the free market system works?)
He also mentioned "brain drain," explaining how from Latin America and the Caribbean, there are 1.2 million professionals working in United States and other developed countries, stated the minister. (oh, he’s against immigration? How about the brain drain in Cuba that ships its medical professionals to work as indentured servants in other countries)
He expressed his conviction that it is possible to dedicate scientific advances to
fighting diseases and underdevelopment and "not to conceive increasingly more
sophisticated and lethal systems of armaments." (like his buddies Iran, No. Korea, Venezuela, China…?, how many miracle drugs did any of these countries create ?....)
