Computers in Cuba and the freedom of choice
Coming from a state where almost one half of the population holds up countries such as Cuba as models of prosperity, I wonder how my brethren would react to the news that Cuba has just put the first computers on sale for the public.
I remember how the communists reacted to the advent of computers in India. They embarked on what they do best, hold states to ransom by imposing what is their favourite pastime, agitations and bandhs.
It is time the citizenry recognised what 'professing socialists' truly want; control our lives by regulating and dictating what we ought to and ought not to buy. Which in other words is, denying me, my freedom of choice. Unimaginable in these ages, yet so true for millions of people languishing in countries where forced socialism rules the roost.
