Oh…I see the confusion. Some feeble minded folks think when McDonalds spends a million dollars building a restaurant, hires 50 people to work and hungry people go there for lunch, somehow that means America is “ruling” the country!?
People can eat a hamburger at home too you know.(well, except in Cuba because there’s no hamburger except for the party leaders) It is funny how people have a utopian vision of the world in their own mind and love to put down the international businesses that don’t quite fit their own ideal. However, when you want the world to bend to your own idea of perfection, you become a fascist.
If there is ever a McDonalds or Burger King in Havana, I won’t eat there because I never go to them in the US. However, if those American chain restaurants do appear, they’ll be there because the Cuban people want them to be there because they want to eat there. Your idea of the perfect Cuba, fortunately, is totally irrelevant to those of her citizens.
Free minds, free markets and a free society is my idea of a perfection. I wish more people felt the same way. How about reading a little Milton Friedman so we can bring this discussion up a bit?
