Cuba: totalitarianism and Haitianization

It is increasingly common to hear Cubans say that Cuba is the same or worse than Haiti.  In Cuba, with a different history than Haiti, the implementation of a totalitarian system after 1959 generated the basis for the current deplorable state of affairs.

If the sending of remittances to Cuba in these 30 years has demonstrated anything, it is the real financial potential of the exile community, in close economic alliance with Cuban residents in the island, to be able to quickly transform the country the day that basic freedoms are restored and respected in the island.
