According to Louis Pr., the NYT reports Cubans claiming:

:"Our wine is bitter," Mr. Cabrera said. "But it is ours. We
labor. But it
:is ours and we drink it."

Se non e vero, e ben trovato. What's the difference between this
spirit and that which shifted Americans from tea to coffee, or
from good British cloth to homespun? It is interesting to realize
how forgotten are the Americans of their own past, or -rather-
how strongly does imperialist interest weight over the
consciousness of a whole nation, that they cannot recognize in
the Cubans the same spirit that presided over their own struggle
for independence.

And, as you see, this has little (and at the same time,
everything, beauties of dialectics!) with socialism as such.
