Shocked to see this article in The Nation. For too many years The Nation served as an enthusiastic apologist for nothing less than a totalitarian thugish regime. I was always appalled by the Castro sycophants (Hollywood was and apparently is all in yet) who could not see the obvious.
Worse were the people who could not distinguish a true tyrant in Cuba but could see without difficulty all of the real and perceived imperfections of their own country.
This seemed nothing less than a character flaw.
Hope to see more evidence that The Nation magazine can make out tyranny when administered from those who read the same books.
To all of the Castro worshipers who read The Nation, you should be truly embarrassed if not ashamed for the thousands of souls who suffered inhumanly while you postured.
