Fidel the internet addict

Fidel Castro is an internet addict, and like all addicts, he doesn’t like to share his stash.

Castro called Web communication “the most powerful weapon that has existed” and extolled its power to break a stranglehold on the media by “the empire” (that means the United States, of course) and “ambitious private groups that have abused it.” But the fact that it is such a powerful weapon is, of course, precisely why unfettered access for all Cubans isn’t really on Big Brother Fidel’s mind.
