"According to Humberto Fontova (Cuban-American author, blogger and political commentator) in his book “The Longest Romance: The Mainstream Media and Fidel Castro,” the daily food rations for slaves in Cuba in 1842 based on royal decree from the Spanish king were significantly more generous than the daily food rations for Cubans in 1962 when the Castro regime first implemented its food rationing system (and the rations haven’t improved much over time).
Related: See WaPo article “Living on Cuban Food Ration Isn’t Easy” and Miami Herald article “Cuba’s food ration stores mark 50th anniversary” and “For Cubans, the struggle to supplement meager rations is a consuming obsession.”
Bottom Line: Is it even really necessary to mention that the conclusion here is this: Socialism = Slavery?"
