Cuba: socialism and media. There are a crtitic in the press of Cuba?


The last years of Brezhnev's rule were marked by a growing personality cult. He was well known for his love of medals (he received a total of 114), so in December 1976, for his 70th birthday, he was awarded the Hero of the Soviet Union. The award, the highest order of the Soviet Union, is normally given for heroic feats in service to the Soviet state and society. Brezhnev received the award, which comes with the order of Lenin and the Gold Star, three more times in celebration of his birthdays. Brezhnev also received the Order of Victory, the highest Soviet military award, in 1978, becoming the only recipient receiving the order after the end of World War II. Brezhnev's controversial award was, however, revoked posthumously in 1989 for not meeting the requirements for the award.
This slew of military awards was justified by his participation in the comparatively little-known WWII episode, when a group of Soviet marines beat off a series of German attempts to destroy the Soviets' beachhead, nicknamed Malaya Zemlya, on the Black Sea coast near Novorossiysk. By the early 1980s, Brezhnev's book on the subject, followed by his other books, one on the Virgin Lands Campaign[6] and another on the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine's industries, were translated into scores of languages (including such an unlikely choice as Yiddish[7]) and became (at least on paper) compulsory study material in every Soviet school. It is now believed that the books were written by some of his "court writers". At the urging of Brezhnev - or to flatter the elder leader - the Malaya Zemlya episode was tremendously hyped up: a movie was filmed, featuring a song by Aleksandra Pakhmutova.

Although all the officers knew of the Russian Red Army in Cuba in the 70's, and made comments on the fact that Brezhnev lived tucked away in the rear during the Great Patriotic War by a relative of senior Party members. This was exacerbated by the exhibition of a film in Cuba that exaggerates their participation in the war.

Juventud Rebelde. Havana, Cuba:
"In the end, we are building a Comptroller General of the Republic."
"European socialism lost the display disappeared because it actually happened, and the compass to correct the path. That lesson should not be forgotten, nor the tragedy of Dorian Gray, that character of Irish writer Oscar Wilde, obsessed by narcissism, he hid his portrait, not to see the faces he was winning with the mistakes of his conduct. Cuba has enough light to look in the mirror and correct your ugliness."This is the paragraph which concludes Jose Alejandro Rodriguezpepe@juventudrebelde.cuAugust 29, 2009 23:26:55 CDT , a columnist Cuban newspaper Juventud Rebelde "the issue about the lack of deep critical Cuban state media", the only circulating on the island and reveals the interest of intellectuals in the island by a further development of citizen participation and democracy in Cuba's socialist society.

"Except that in the deceptive mirror of my childhood golden assured the witch who was the fairest in the world, these moons are made of silver with quicksilver of sincerity. We return the image as we are, with the grooves and the snows of time.
Companies also need mirrors to look and identify their wrinkles which, unlike the human faces that mark, they are reversible.
And our socialism requires systematic observations, without clinging to idyllic images or misleading claims if we are the best of all worlds.
I say this because in my long and loving constructivism reflect the problems of society, for this last, I've encountered in quite a few reactions to honest criticism, with a burden that blind: the parapet, the syndrome of 'saw'; something about who prosecutes, you are boring the ground to desbarrancarte.
The unhealthy obsession with caring "image" of the country, ministry, business or land-often the most recurrent concern for their own blunders of reality is sometimes paranoia about the fate of your job, your dependents some trifle more, when what it really is better.
In others, due to widespread confusion that all too many assume, perhaps without meaning: the problems (of the country, ministry, business or territory) should not clarified publicly, because underestimating the real gains of the Revolution.
And that blindness which opportunistic drink and indolent, fee or rows, you can feed the feeling that everything is right. The most pernicious is that they confuse reality with the wishes and clinging to the noble paradigms of our society, we discover where, when and how intensely the everyday reality denies. That would be the worst service to the Revolution.
One preaches that scientific principle to solve something crooked must first recognize and elucidate. Many long time there was resistance to accept that in our society already hatched larvae of corruption. That was a bad word, as if we ordered, so honestly gained.
In the end, we are building a Comptroller General of the Republic.
Some have come to see the healthy exercise of criticism, "which certainly should not be in it if not actions, and transformations-as a concession to loose; like giving weapons to the enemy. The truth is that the missile can offer him more dangerous than to those willing to dismantle a 50-year work is silence, simulation, double standards, conformity, deactivation of the intransigence to the evils that hatch and develop before our eyes .
European socialism lost the display disappeared because it actually happened, and the compass to correct the path. That lesson should not be forgotten, nor the tragedy of Dorian Gray, that character of Irish writer Oscar Wilde, obsessed by narcissism, he hid his portrait, not to see the faces he was winning with the mistakes of his conduct. Cuba has enough light to look in the mirror and correct your ugliness."
