Deja fucking Vu

“Our people were ignorant of the most essential economic questions,

an ignorance which was the product of interests  which always wanted

to keep the people uneducated. Why was it so? Because only in the absence

of political and economic consciousness could the government do  the

things it did here, maintain the demagogy which always existed here

and invent all the lies it used here to explain something so essential

to the life of the people as economy is.”

Fidel Castro.

Spoken on September 17th. 1959, it is as relevant a thought today

in this country as it was then on that day in Cuba.
