Lift the Embargo and Leave Cuba Alone

“In the wake of protests by thousands of Cuban citizens, the U.S. government and its rightwing supporters are pointing to Cuba’s socialist economic system as the root cause of suffering by the Cuban people. The Cuban government, on the other hand, and its leftwing supporters here in the United States are pointing to the U.S. embargo as the root cause of the suffering. Actually, they are both right. Socialism is a dismal, failed, deadly, and destructive economic system that brings impoverishment and tyranny with it. Just ask the people of North Korea and Venezuela. By the same token, economic embargoes inflict massive economic suffering on the people of a targeted nation.” (07/14/21)
