Presumably then, if the US embargo on Cuba is lifted and significant
trade between the US and Cuba commences, the Cubans will no longer
consider the fact that "there are social inequalities in [the USA], and
that there are billionaires making lots of money there" to be a concern,
but instead view with "some curious wonderment", the left's concern with
that fact.
Cheers,
