One thought on “Brazilian Training Ship Anchors in Havana

  • Socialist countries should be magnets for visitors of all sorts coming from capitalist countries: and they would naturally showcase the superiority of the socialist system to these well-impressed people, simply by functioning beyond capitalism’s clear limits. Then, these visitors would be coming to socialist countries on those countries’ terms — not, as happens far too much today, as privileged 1st-class royalty, as in the various cuban USD$ ‘resorts’, etc…

    So: show these sailors a good time, eh? Just not like _that_..!
