HAVANA - President Raul Castro warned Cubans on Friday to prepare for a "realistic" brand of communism that is economically viable and does away with excessive state subsidies designed to promote equality on the island...
"Socialism means social justice and equality, but equality of rights, of opportunities, not of income," the 77-year-old president said in a speech that was taped and later aired on national television. "Equality is not egalitarianism."
That sentiment marks a break with his brother, who spent decades saying Cuba was building an egalitarian society.
So what's left of communist countries after you take away the communism? Just the police state.
