I don't know if Che had much if anything to do with it really, that is life currently in Cuba especially four decades after his death.In real historical (Cuban) terms,not what we in the West are inculcated with through Corporate media outlets. Che is considered by most Cubans that have heard about him a very minor player in ridding Cuba of American colonialism.

The American Government is in the hands of radicals already Robert! Where on earth have you been the last 10-15 years or so.These fanatics are hell bent on taking to fruition their insideous, imbalanced and un-just Democratic values and throwning them away for a Plutocratic Military state where War Fear and Terror are always JUST around the corner! Not like that in Cuba, i've been there three times since 2002.

New laws are always designed to snare the weak, but never strong enough to stop or imprison the well off's or 1%er's. Alan Stanford, Bernie Madoff, Richard Marin Scrushy are a few that have seen major jail time, but they are the minority for sure! In the U.K, from the 1997-2011,the then Labour Government had introduced 4,289 "NEW" Criminal Offences! SOURCE: Guiness Book of World Records 2011!(Australian Version)

it was in reply to me on comment made by someone who replied to my question. It was about Ben & Jerry and how they are philanthropic with some of their money and i was replying on how i was unaware of this philanthropy. Second time i've used TED. To err is human bud, the respondent did get this message, and i got another response, so i believe your needing to read it was superfluous!

Thanks Henry for this well constructed and thought out piece, you are so right in this regard. Do you think Henry that the Types of Presidents American have elected since Carter, the Conservative, Fundamentalist with regards to their Religion, non-progressive socially as in regards to programs for minorities and the disadvantaged which have been eviscerated from Government over this time period, and could this be the long term impact or effect of Reagan's first dismantling of these social structures in America?

That's awsesome Casey for people like ourselves, living where i do in Australia also puts us(Australia) in that global 1% Worldwide, even above America! The Non-1% or The Occupy Movement i'm more referring too, the YOUTH, not the old fully complient and indoctrinated sheep, 99% people are ones who've never been able to find appropriate employment, disenfranchised even with stellar grades from top notch Universities! So they don't even appear on the statistics you cite.The one's who were on the streets everywhere there was an oppurtunity to do so before getting beaten up and assulted by public servant Police, NOT the pin-headed anarchist hell bent on raising hell at what or whoever's cost! Does this provide an adaquate response on which 99% i'm talking about?

Numbers which are NOT based on reality can just as easily be described as "Made up" or not real, Science as you say "descibes reality or not"! And Economics as i said before isn't real or based in reality. How do you put numbers or Economic theory to a tree or forest, yet they try and horribly fail, deforestation, loss of species, How can a rational, intelligent, socially progressive individual fathom that thought! If there's money, then the rational Economist come and do their pseudo-science and plunder everything, leaving nothing.This is not Economics based on either David Riccardo or Adam Smith, this is just economics based and focused on the ruling elites around the globe and what works best for them, not everyone! "All animals are created equal, except some animals are more equal than others"! George Orwell, -Animal Farm .

O.K., I was not aware of this philanthropy, but i'm 100% sure it's only for tax minimisation purposes, and NOT out of the generosity and goodness of their heart. It's a "good" thing to show publically for PR purposes this Philanthropy, and they make sure it's known. They don't want to be seen as total miser's with their fortune,bad public relations. J.P.Getty is still to this day noted for his stinginess, and he's been dead eighty years!
