Are Castro's admittedly thoughtful words a strong enough brew to hold the Cuban system together, especially in the event of his apparently pending passing?
Nobody can doubt the sincerity of Obama's words when he says he will make his country into a model of freedom, respect for human rights in the world and for the independence of other nations. . .
[But,] despite all the tests he has been put through, Obama has not faced the most important of all.
What will he do when the immense power he has grasped soon proves to be totally useless in overcoming the intractable, opposing contradictions of the (capitalist) system?
The final question may be interesting but I doubt that it will be sufficient to stir the Cuban people to defiance of the United States.
