According to this article, Granma , the official organ of the Cuban Communist Party, had an interesting piece today about Cuban salaries. In it, it claimed that Carlos Mateu, a vice minister of labor and social security for the regime,
“underscored that there has been a tendency for everyone to get the same, and that egalitarianism is not convenient.”
Egalitarianism is not convenient.
So that’s 50 years, (and counting), of chasing the Holy Grail of egalitarianism- forcing Cubans to act against their nature, punishing us, imprisoning us, banishing us and killing us and now it’s suddenly not convenient?!?!
What a bunch of cynical traitors! What’s “not convenient” and forcing (r)aúl, the new pragmatic Philosopher King, to change the Marxist dogma is that under the current salary system, there’s no incentive to work hard, or at all, and that’s cutting into his profits:
Mateu said the new compensation system fits with the mantra of “socialist distribution” often mentioned by new President Raul Castro: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his work.”
That’s meant to distinguish the current system from Cuba’s ideological goal, Karl Marx’s formula of communism: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”
Everyday it’s another admission that the so called revolution was a scam that was based on lies as the regime scrambles to rationalize undoing all (f)idel’s insane policies in the hopes that it can stave off the inevitable collapse just long enough to make a few more bucks.
If the underlying ideological principles of (c)astro’s revolution, Marxism and egalitarianism, where wrong, then the “revolution” has been about absolute power and enslaving the Cuban people and forcing them to live in egalitarian misery.
Not convenient but true.
