Blind Loyalty / Reinaldo Escobar

Two weeks after the conclusion of the Sixth Congress of the Cuban Communist Party, they have not yet published the definitive version of the guidelines which, according to their own report, are the fruit of the reformulation during which 68 percent of the population discussed the project. However, on the TV news report about the May Day March, the journalists extracted from those they interviewed expressions of support for the “acts of the Sixth Congress,” as if anyone knew for sure what had finally been agreed upon.

I wonder if those who run this country see this blind loyalty, deaf, mute, and even stupid among their followers as a good thing or a bad thing. For how long are they going to be proud of such nonsense?
