Question: Who said “Free opinion is a principle of democracy. That’s the only reason we don’t forbid any idea. And, what you see here is absolute free opinion , free rights and human rights”?
Answer: Fidel Castro in a video interview on July 28 1959.
Fidel then went on to say how he has not yet talked about nationalizing US companies. (We all know that Castro took the path away from free opinion and democracy.)
Manfredz, a regular reader who posts many balanced comments here, sent me the link to the one hour long video containing Fidel’s words that was shown on Canadian television recently. I thank him for sharing that video with me and I would post it here but it takes a very long time to download.
The video was very professional and did not come across as too political or slanted.
