On Socialism and the ‘New Man’: A Necessary Critical Review

The recent history of socialism has left us with many questions. Deepening a careful study of what happened, although it is not exactly a “fashion” topic today, must be faced with a true critical spirit, because after the extinction or transformation of many of these experiences (Russia, China, Cuba, Nicaragua, etc.) the world is not better. On the contrary, we are arguably closer to the nineteenth century than to the twenty-second: current problems are similar or worse than those of a century ago, with many troubling novelties, such as environmental degradation or possible thermonuclear war. , the exclusion of innumerable numbers of workers by automation and robots and the enormous differences – before undistinguished – between those who have everything and those who live off leftovers (there are mass migrations desperate to explain this).

In the second half of June, an issue as important as it was complex is back at the center of the South American and European agenda. Lula was in France and the strategic partnership agreement between Mercosur and the European Union was part of the struggle between the future “partners”. On the other hand, on July 2, the final declaration of the 26th meeting of the São Paulo Forum, which brings together progressive and left-wing forces on the continent, denounced the free trade agreements.

An anti-Cuban factory that supports the blockade. “Bob” Menendez, the perfect paragon of falsehood and corruption

I wanted to insist on common sense, the ‘least common sense’, and on the validity of this statement in the twenty-first century, in a world where senators no longer wear togas, but we are always amazed at how slanderous and most shameful lies are still believed.” By part of the world,” “for a part of the time,” in the famous phrase of the brilliant thinker Abraham Lincoln. It is rubbish like “Pateria Potestad”, “Brothers Planes to the Rescue”, “Sonic Attacks”, and now “Chinese Spy Base in Cuban Land”, among thousands of other lies. The methodology consists in telling a lie, using it for a while to harm Cuba in Congress and/or the United States government, after achieving the goal of harming Cuba, silencing the trick in a veil of insurmountable silence, never admitting that it was a lie and “not talking about it anymore.” “.
