Thanks for the link. I'd still like the following question addressed,
though. It comes up often when we as socialists talk with
non-socialists:

"Why do immigrants from Mexico risk their lives crossing the desert
into the USA, rather than risk their lives crossing the sea into Cuba?
Even when Cuba has free universal health care and excellent education,
while the USA does not?"

The answer would be, more or less, that we can't begin to make this
implicit comparison as long as there's an embargo against Cuba,
putting constraints on its economy... I think.

It'll nevertheless be useful, probably,  to put it in the FAQ, as it
comes up often.
