Cuba’s new constitution is the same as the old one — undemocratic

by Marion Smith February 26, 2019 (USA TODAY) Maybe you heard: Communist Cuba is on the road to freedom. That’s what Cuba’s rulers want you to think after the Cuban people overwhelmingly approved a new constitution on Sunday. But the opposite is true. Cuba’s rulers have only cemented their control, and the Cuban people are no […]

Venezuela: it’s now or never

By Carlos Alberto Montaner* The fate of Venezuela is probably in the hands of Juan Guaidó. He is a 35-year old National Assembly deputy, linked to Voluntad Popular, a party founded by Leopoldo López. He was named president of the National Assembly, which is something like winning a tiger in a raffle. As President of […]

Democratic Socialism is a Scam

written by Giancarlo Sopo (Quillete) When I attended a rally with my family in Little Havana for then-Senator Barack Obama in 2007, our old neighborhood greeted both us and the future 44th president as if we were traitors. Older, conservative protestors yelled “Comunistas!” at us from across the Miami-Dade County Auditorium. We brushed off the […]

Globalization starts at home and it is useless to try to prevent it

By Carlos Alberto Montaner Donald Trump rectified. That’s great. The growing avalanche of rejection toward his policy of separating children from their parents when they crossed the borders irregularly was so big, that he was forced to issue a presidential decree allowing the families to remain united.

The dangerous protectionism of Donald Trump

By Carlos Alberto Montaner He said he would do it. Donald Trump has unleashed a trade war. He is a self-confessed mercantilist. This is just the second skirmish. The first one was the insensitive withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. This time Trump imposed high tariffs on the import of steel (25%) and aluminum (10%). Then […]

We are all Norwegians

By Carlos Alberto Montaner Donald Trump would like Norwegian immigrants. Blond, tall, tidy, hard-working, educated and clean people. Successful people with whom he shares physical features and certain traits. But it’s unlikely that he’ll have any luck. Today, Norwegians enjoy a standard of living higher than Americans and find that in their democratic, free and […]

One year without Fidel

By Carlos A. Montaner It has been one year since Fidel’s death was announced. It seems like a century ago. For more than a decade, from July 26, 2006 to Nov. 25, 2016, he lived with one foot in the grave. That slow-motion agony was very useful to his brother Raúl. It served to fasten […]
