But it is precisely as a symbol that Cuba threatens the geo-political
interests of global capital. Perhaps more than any other revolution, the
Cuban experiment has shown that there is an alternative to capitalism.

All Capital really needs to rule is the passive acceptance of the
workers. The shrug of resignation. What can you do?

Cuba is the antithesis of all that.
