The American Government has embraced Cuba not because Cuba has rejected Communism but because the American Government has embraced Communism, as the Berlin Wall did not come down because Communism was defeated but because Communism had succeeded. Mandela was not released from prison because he abandoned Communism. Has was released from prison because the Supreme Court of South Africa had embraced it.
The only 'change' in regards to Communism is, instead of shooting the resister to 'change' (outright), using the classroom to re-educate students (the next generation of citizens) instead. That is, through the use of the "group grade" and the consensus process ("building relationship upon self interest"), washing the father's authority (the source of nationalism) from their brain.
Since the 50's, Bloom's Taxonomies have been used by teachers and schools all around the world. All teachers today are certified by their learning to apply Bloom's Taxonomies (now called Marzano's or Webb's Taxonomies) in the classroom and all schools are accredited (including Christian and Private schools, as well as colleges and universities) based upon their use of them. Bloom admitted that their "Weltanschauung" (world view) was that of two Marxist, Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality and Erick Fromm, Escape from Freedom, who were two members of the Frankfurt School (Marxist who came to America from Europe in the early 30's, teaching Marxism in our Universities).
Fromm wrote: "We are proud that in his conduct of life man has become free from external authorities, which tell him what to do and what not to do." "Man is free from all ties binding him to spiritual authorities, but this very freedom leaves him alone and anxious, overwhelms him with a feeling of his own individual insignificance and powerlessness." Fromm believed that man could "not take the last logical step, to give up 'God' and to establish a concept of man as a being who is alone in the world, but who can feel at home in it if he achieves union with his fellow man and with nature." (Erick Fromm, Escape from Freedom) "In fact, it is probably fair to say that Erich Fromm's Marx's Concept of Man introduced the young Marx to America and provided the dominate interpretation of this thinker for the students of the New Left." "…Fromm gave the humanitarian, idealist, and romantic proponents of the New Left a Marx they could love." (Stephen Erik Bronner, Of Critical Theory and its Theorists)
"In Escape from Freedom, Fromm offered the sado-masochistic character [with the parent giving the children orders and the children carrying them out without question] as the core of the authoritarian personality." "By The Authoritarian Personality ‘revolutionary' had changed to ‘democratic.'" (Martin Jay, The Dialectical Imagination: The History of the Frankfurt School and the Institute of Social Research 1923-1950)
Is it no wander that we have become a nation that no longer resists Communism but embraces it instead, having used Marxist training manuals in our classrooms for over the past 60 years. It is the stuff Common Core is made of, making sure that all professions (professionals) become and remain loyal to Communism, making the world "safe for democracy."
"Bypassing the traditional channels of top-down decision making [bypassing limited, representative, constitutional government through the use of the consensus process], our objective centers upon .... transform public opinion into an effective instrument of global politics." "Individual values must be measured by their contribution to common interests and ultimately to world interests.... transforming public consensus into one favorable to the emergence of a stable and humanistic world order." "Consensus is both a personal and a political step. It is a precondition of all future steps..." (Irvin Laszlo, A Strategy for the Future: The Systems Approach to World Order)
After all a soviet is a diverse group of people (including the deviant, i.e., the revolutionary), dialoguing their opinions to a consensus (which makes deviancy, i.e., revolution the "norm"), over social issues (over socialist issues), in a facilitated meeting (replacing traditional "top-down" leadership), to a predetermined outcome that no policy is to be made without the forgoing, consensus, i.e., soviet process. It is how government makes its policies today, where "representatives," after listening to "the peoples" petitions, dialogue their own opinions (how they "feel" and what they "think" in the 'moment') amongst themselves to come up with the final decision. It is the same procedure students are learning to use in the classroom, through the "group grade" 'discovering' how to identify and then resolve personal-social issues.
In the end murder (killing the unborn, the elderly, the innocent, i.e., "collateral damage" and anyone else who happens to get in the way of 'change') is 'justified' as long as it is done for the "good" of society (for the advancement of socialism), "making the world safe for democracy." Cuba is as America, as America is as Cuba, one and the same in propagating the principles of Communism, i.e., "equality," overlooking the bloodshed that was (and is being) perpetrated in order to get its way.
