  • The heaviest jackboot on the neck of socialism is Marxist state socialist ideology.

    If this archaic, defunct ideology were not on the neck of every who has come to socialist consciousness in the past decades, the whole world would have advanced to socialist cooperative republics long ago, and imperialism would have been defeated.

    It is urgent that enough people–especially Fidel and Raul–grope their way out of the Marxist fog in time to save the Cuban Revolution.

  • With a proper plan for advancing real socialism in America Latina — ALBA-led or otherwise — perhaps most of those who are dissatisfied with the status quo in Cuba might be encouraged to drop their fixation with the siren call of Western Imperialism: which itself promises so much but delivers so little; and always will, so long as it continues to exist.

    Socialism, however, *will* ‘deliver the goods’ — once it gets that imperialist jackboot off its neck.
