Some Are More Equal Than Others

Castro angry over Forbes listing

Cuban President Fidel Castro has criticized Forbes magazine for the "infamy" of listing him among the world's richest people, with a net worth of $550 million.

"Once again, they have committed the infamy of speaking about Castro's fortune, placing me almost above the queen of England," Castro said in a speech to top officials of Cuba's ruling Communist Party, military and police.
I wonder what the workers of Cuba would think of this.....

This is really why I was never a fan of communism, really. Capitalism and communism are mostly a matter of who the hegemony is.

On the other hand, I think Cubans are better off with a U.S. embargo. Guaranteed: once it is lifted, American corporations that lost their land will demand it again and it will likely turn into another bastion of cheap, exploitable labor.

I really don't know what is preferable anymore. It's like choosing between two, equally unappealing evils.
