    Inequality:

    “As Cuba is becoming more capitalist in the last 20 years, it has also become more unequal,” said Ted Henken, a professor at Baruch College who studies the Cuban economy. “These shantytowns are all over Latin America, and Cuba’s attempt with revolution to solve that inequality succeeded to a certain degree for a time. But as capitalism increases, you have some people more well positioned to take advantage and others who are not.”

    What are you saying here? That socialism will give you a luxury lifestyle? Then bring it on.

    Perhaps you have not been listening to Bernie. He does NOT believe in government owning the means of production.

    Many People are All products of Cold War, and have a Knee-Jerk Negative Reaction to the word Socialism: They can’t help themselves as they, their parents, and grandparents all were propagandized from the mid-40’s on to today that “Socialism = Communism” and is Bad! Just read the mindless rubbish posted in the social media!

    Perhaps our national goal should be to try to make sure every citizen can have a reasonably good life? People should be able to have access to decent medical care, a decent place to live and a nutritious diet. They should have the opportunity to learn and grow and contribute to their society. I don’t much care what names you hang on how it gets done.

    Equality of standard & equality under the law are one thing. PHOF Sanders wants to punish success- just the kind of thing to discourage it.

    @Ted Lind

    Sorry I didn’t reply to your good post yesterday. There are just some days when I get disgusted and depressed when too many in the GC forums try and redefine words, quote blatantly political forums as gospel, and make juvenile, baseless, and insulting comments to other posters.

    “Inequality:”

    Is Professor Henken implying that not everyone is equally poor in Cuba now?

    The Koch family stared te John Birch Society to defame socialism, and they are still spilling their poisonous politics all over the right wing.

    Sandersistas keep mumbling that “democratic socialism” is actually capitalism. Capitalism got you Shkreli and bank bailouts. I think you can keep your democratic socialism, er, capitalism.

    " It’s all a matter of choices, which socialism will not give them to you. "

    From what I know of Ted, there is little of what you posted that applies to him.

    IMO communist and other types of dictatorships use “the People” as part of the attempted disguise to fool the oppressed population and world opinion.
    -
    Cuba is officially “The Republic of Cuba” according to the CIA annual factbook. the “President” (Fidel and since 2008 Raul)
    rule the “Council of State” and “Council of Ministers”….then underneath is the “National Assembly of People’s Power” (IMO an oxymoron) and the “People’s Supreme Court.”
    -
    We all know that these collectivist governments are dictatorships, and the furthest thing from our chosen type, a Republic, with a Constitution and Bill of Rights for a Free People, meant to guarantee the human rights given to us by God. Most dictatorships are anti-God and have and do persecute Christians and others. Our USA problem is internal, with secular/atheists creeping into control of government and education and every branch of “science” that is based on anti-God Darwinism and its offshoots.
