    Believe it or not, not everyone needs a US type anything to do good work.
    Actually they usually do.

    And I'm schooling you on internet usage. What a tight friendship we now have.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Thats how it works for us. But I've lived in countries which had to do it in reverse. Like South Korea. In regard to Cuba, that may be the only strategy.

    People work hardest when they have something to do. America is the single greatest land of opportunity. We are an amazingly rich country in resources. Cuba is in pretty bad shape. If even a small middle class were created, they might be able to throw off their shackles.

    Absolutely correct. The ROK took off under a dictatorship. There is no one-size-fits-all answer, and people that pretend there is are among the very dumbest of us.

    As soon as a Cuban gets enough money for an inner-tube, they set sail.
