Our friends at Investors Business Daily always have spot-on commentary about Cuba and Latin America. Today is no exception. In addition to the fact they have published a very insightful column today, the quoted my piece in Pajamas Media. Did I mention how much I love IBD?
Raul may permit some economic freedom, but he remains a doctrinaire Marxist and will do so only if it serves the state. Real reform, however, is not about tactics. It’s about giving rights to people. Castro’s exit and Cuba’s transition to a family dynasty with a large fortune should not be mistaken for real democracy.
Also, IBD has this great cartoon by the best political cartoonist I have seen, Michael Ramirez.
