(By Nelson Valdes, a long-time and highly respected scholar of the Cuban 
Revolution. One wonders if Lippmann will spew his venom at him as well.)

The re-stratification of Cuban society had begun. One should note that 
the size of the work force involved in state employment has declined 
while the private sector continues to grow.

Recent changes in US policy toward the island reveal the Obama 
administration objective: riding such major shifts in Cuban employment 
and property patterns in order to foment a Thermidorean Reaction that 
would bring to an end the Cuban revolutionary regime.*

In his recent public speech, Fidel Castro said, “To our brothers and 
sisters of the world we have to say, the Cuban people shall overcome.” 
[7] Fidel Castro has considered the possibility of two alternative Cuban 
revolutionary regimes: one without capitalism, the other with it but 
under the leadership of the Communist Party. In either case the issue, 
as in 1959, is sovereignty.
