Well, I think Fidel Castro has officially lost his mind. You really need to read this entire reflection. He talks about the young workers and the different quality of workers, the rising price of oil and food, cars in the US, how Nixon went off the gold standard and then he asks if he should go more deeply into these topics. Exactly whom is he asking and would anyone inside his inner inner circle going to say No to him?
To absent President Fidel: You are making yourself look foolish and people are laughing at you now. No one cares about your Reflections. They are a waste of time. How do your Reflections influence or motivate anyone?
And now this from Prensa Latina
Fidel Castro Calls to Deepen Knowledge to Create Conscience
Cuban President Fidel Castro stated that we have to make the brain cells work if we want to build consciences, so necessary in today’s complex world.
“What the people in our country need most is knowledge, if what we want to do is to create conscience,” said the Revolution leader in his article entitled “Cuba’s Self-Criticism,” published in this capital Wednesday.
“On specific economic matters, I think that in every country, most people are unaware of everything. It is inescapable to know why the cost of oil is climbing; last Monday the price reached 77 dollars a barrel. Why the prices of foods are increasing, such as wheat and others which must be imported because of climate related problems; if the cause of their increase is permanent or short-lived,” the head of State pointed out.
Due to its importance, Prensa Latina integrally reproduces below reflections by the Cuban president:
