Let’s allow unfettered access and travel to Cuba! The time is right! fidel castro is dead! There’s a power struggle in Cuba! Now’s the time to jump in! Let’s let Americans go to Cuba to show those Cubans what freedom is really about! European and Asian and Latin American businesses are taking all the business opportunities that American busineses should be privy to!
Those, and a few others, are arguments Ive been hearing and reading lately from many sources, blogs, media, politicians, philosophers, intellectuals, college professors and your average run of the mill Jose’s, ad nauseum, ad infinitum.
And, to be quite honest, I dont know if theyre right or if their wrong. What I do know, however, is that absolutely nothing has changed in Cuba since it “opened” up to tourism and business ventures many moons ago. Not a damned thing. Nothing. Nada. Nico. Nick Jones.
So if anyone cares to convince me – sans far fetched hypotheticals, please – and citing regional historial factum, feel free to do so. I want to know exactly how any or all of those arguments stated aove, in the historial context of Cuba and it’s government, will foster change.
Because there’s alot of we should’s and what if’s and supposing we do this or thats going around lately with very little, if any, evidence to prove the theories.
And please, do me a favor, refrain from mentioning any China economic models and if you are to mention Velvet revolutions, etal, like trial evidence, please prove the similarities between those and Cuba and how they relate in a contextual basis.
Have at it. Im all ears.
