One of the things that becomes depressingly obvious as you begin reading
Samuel Farber’s “Cuba since the Revolution of 1959: a critical
assessment” is its refusal to acknowledge anything positive about the
system. It is a methodology that he learned on the sectarian left and
that has been reinforced by the particular brand of
Sovietology/Cubanology he developed over decades in the academy. It is
the approach of the District Attorney who is making the case against the
defendant, footnotes included. I learned the sectarian way to do it
through 11 years of membership in the SWP, all geared to making the
“enemy” of the party some kind of guilty perp.
