Response: Cubans have the right to reject western consumerism
Sure, I agree wholeheartedly.
Just as Cubans have the right to embrace western consumerism if they so wish.
Or at least, they would have, in a free society, have such right at an individual level. To embrace consumerism or asceticism, as they wished.
Unfortunately they live in a Marxist dictatorship so there\’s no actually much choice left to them in the matter, is there?
