Our friend down under, Luis M. Garcia, brings our attention to another one of these ongoing contradictions in Cuba. Specifically old man fidel rails on things in writing while little brother raul implements the exact policies fidel is cricizing in practice.
As I mentioned yesterday, fidel says ethanol is bad, it will cause a “genocide” in fact, but under raul, Cuba is building an ethanol plant with Colombian help.
Well Garcia tells us about the latest reflection of the coma andante in which:

he attacks the spread of what he describes as ‘imperialist inventions’. You know, like the compact disc, mobile phones, DVDs and even the online social network Facebook.

The saying “the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing” was never more true than in modern day Cuba.
