Each announced change was another little white flag admitting that the revolution and its leader had been wrong all along.
I came across this article over the weekend –another white flag
According to the article, the regime has admitted that the new man that Fidel set out to create not only did not materialize, but the citizen that resulted from their oppression and indoctrination is incapable of contributing to modern society.
Their solution is to “prepare its citizens”
So you see, every facet of the Cuban citizen’s life has been controlled since the early sixties by a Stalinist Totalitarian regime, but now it’s the citizens that need “re-educating.” It’s not the system that breeds apathy, corruption and incompetence, it’s the people who need more training.
Juventud Rebelde, the newspaper, reported that the Cuban National Assembly has formed a 43-member commission which will develop an "integral plan for educating citizens" about civil society, in order to strengthen civic knowledge and awareness about the organization of Cuban society
Cubans were ill informed about "many issues" of civil society, assembly President Ricardo Alarcon was quoted as saying.
"The project is inextricably entwined with the present and future of socialism in Cuba,"
This means that more sacrifices need to be made in order save socialism again.
The “newest” man needs to be created. One that will work harder, obey better, complain less and sacrifice more for the common good.
This is about as stupid as hanging an “Under New Management” sign outside a penitentiary.
