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.
