“One day we must ask the question, ‘Why are there forty million poor people in America?’ And when you begin to ask that question, you are raising questions about the economic system, about a broader distribution of wealth. When you ask that question, you begin to question the capitalistic economy. And I’m simply saying that more and more, we’ve got to begin to ask questions about the whole society. We are called upon to help the discouraged beggars in life’s market place. But one day we must come to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring. It means that questions must be raised. You see, my friends, when you deal with this, you begin to ask the question, ‘Who owns the oil?’ You begin to ask the question, ‘Who owns the iron ore?’ You begin to ask the question, ‘Why is it that people have to pay water bills in a world that is two thirds water?’ These are questions that must be asked.”

That so many want to leave Cuba is treated as proof that Cuban socialism is a harshly repressive system, rather than that the U.S. embargo has made life difficult in Cuba. That so many millions more want to leave capitalist countries like Mexico, Nigeria, Poland, El Salvador, Philippines, South Korea, Macedonia, and others too numerous to list is never treated as grounds for questioning the free-market system … Continue reading
Source: RT In a largely symbolic move, for the 20th year in a row, the UN General Assembly has voted to condemn the US embargo against Havana. The tally was 186-2 on Tuesday evening, the Associated Press said. The US was only supported by its ally, Israel, while the small Pacific nations of Palau, Micronesia and the Marshall Islands abstained, closely mirroring the voting result last year. Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said that the sanctions had caused direct economic … Continue reading
