One thought on “Cuba-Venezuela Sign Major Accords

  • Socialism first and foremost has to be about teamwork, equality and equitableness — at any scale it is practiced on. The larger the scale, however — the newer a phenomenon it is to this World; which has seen 10.000 years of brutal, narrow-minded and selfish struggle over “scarce” resources. Even under “really-existing socialism” in the last century, intra-bloc trade was as much about exploitation as on the other side of the “Iron Curtain”, AFAIK. Certainly many east-europeans think so. So whatever example ALBA sets for the World as an example of the proper way to conduct socialist business can and will have an effect far beyond the “dollar” value of the transactions undertaken here.

    Best of luck in all projects. Let’s just hope they’re all as well-conceived and undertaken as the other.
