AP - In a country where almost everyone works for the communist state, dairy farmer Jesus Diaz is his own boss. He likes it that way, and so does the government.
AP: THE ASSOCIATED PRESS: DARK ART PRACTITIONERS OF HALF-TRUTHS AT BEST
Here's what that contemptible article doesn't tell you. The only reason there are food shortages in Cuba is due to all the economic boycotting by the imperial government of the U.S. concerning all the rest of the Cuban economy. If the U.S. had never boycotted anything, never put on any economic restrictions concerning Cuba, Cuba would have had zero food shortages all these decades.
Christians are not in favor of compulsory cooperation. Christians are against coercion. Jesus never did, and never would, force anyone to cooperate: To give and share all as God. However, the competitive model is being forced on Cuba. It is coercive. At its heart lies the movement to more and more consolidation of wealth, power, and control in fewer and fewer hands to the obvious detriment of those with the least. At least those with the least in Cuba, in spite of the huge economic duress forced upon that nation by the greedy spirits in the U.S., don't go without the basics.
What the lousy article (very poor journalism; failing grade) doesn't tell you is that Cubans receive many things that the poorest of the poor in the U.S. don't receive. No one in Cuba goes without health care. They all have housing. Everyone receives a free education through college. What's more, the agricultural practices of Cuba have been environmentally much sounder than in the U.S. in general. They have been largely organic in fact.
The article is lousy with the selfish spirit trying to dupe American readers and world readers into believing that all things laissez faire capitalist are good when in fact the exact opposite is true. Jesus was not, and still is not, for laissez faire (dog-eat-dog; selfish) capitalism. The Temple of God is not a house of commerce. That Temple is to encompass everything. That's the prophecy. He doesn't call people to capitalism at all. He wants everyone to voluntarily choose to cooperate. He knows though, as you ought to, that those who stand in the way of full voluntary cooperation will even murder people in order to promote their own selfish, private, special privilege and advantage. Don't be duped by the half-truths and less. Ask for, seek, and knock at the door of the whole truth. Get the big picture. Don't be satisfied with the dribble from the monopolists. The monopolists (laissez faire capitalist) are the sons and daughters of Satan. They follow the satanic spirit, not the Christ spirit.
You are in the capitalist world, but don't be of it. You take your bread from it, but don't imagine for a second that the capitalist system is required for bread. That's a huge lie foisted off on the world by the greediest of the greedy. Before there was capitalism, there was bread and it was free to the whole family of humanity. While the world is under capitalism, work for its peaceful, harmless displacement.
The Associated Press is owned and operated by those who are not of the Christian giving and sharing spirit taught and exemplified by Jesus.
Here's what they say about themselves:
AP's mission is to be the essential global news network, providing distinctive news services of the highest quality, reliability and objectivity with reports that are accurate, balanced and informed. AP operates as a not-for-profit cooperative with more than 4,000 employees working in more than 240 worldwide bureaus. AP is owned by its 1,500 U.S. daily newspaper members.
Now take a look at that. It's global. What they write is spread around the world as a source (supposedly to be trusted). They say they strive to be objective. Do you believe that you were given an objective view concerning Cuba? Capitalist prejudices scream from the article. Many observable facts are always deliberately censored from their stories about Cuba and all the other nations that don't line up with the libertarian-capitalist agenda that never leads to what the initiates are led to believe but rather always to greater monopoly for the few richest people who are the oligarchs and plutocrats of the Earth: Antichrists.
The AP mission is to be balanced and informed. They fail miserably in that stated mission. Did the AP story give you the views of those who don't agree with more competition versus the cooperative spirit? No it did not. Was that a mere oversight or did they know exactly what they were doing? Of course they knew what they were doing. Do you think the 1,500 U.S. daily newspapers that own the AP are not capitalist enterprises? They sell advertising and charge a price for their newspapers. In their hearts they know Jesus is right, but they are under capitalist dictators and they won't buck that for fear of lowering their own position and status within the worldly Empire. That's the truth.
Never read the AP without realizing that it is a mouthpiece for monopolist sitting at the top of the upside-down pyramid of the world of mammon worship.
Look at the hypocrisy built right into their system. It's a non-profit cooperative of for-profit, anti-cooperative businesses. The greedy have agreed to cooperate in order to as group better out compete the even more cooperative. That's a syndicate designed to deprive those who don't agree with the whole competitive model. Don't be tricked. Giving and sharing is the way to God, not selfish competition.
Understand that the U.S. system was designed and created by founders who agreed to cooperate against the King of England (a monopolist) so that those founders could further their own estates and not for sakes of everyone.
The error of Fidel Castro is not in wanting to give and share. It is in coercion. That's the Marxian error. Violence is evil. The capitalist are evil for employing it and so are socialists.
