  • These layoffs are the result of the state monopoly socialism principle foisted on the movement in the next-to-last page of the second chapter of the Communist Manifesto.

    The problems of Cuba cannot be solved by tweaking the unworkable principle of state monopoly. But they can easily be solved by going over to a new socialist mode of production based on direct employee/associate ownership of the instruments of production on the Mondragon, Spain cooperative corporation model.

    Is anyone in Cuba listening?
