The failure of dictatorships

Regarding the recent measure adopted by the Ortega-Murillo regime, by means of which the Cuban brothers will no longer need a visa to enter Nicaragua, something that should be commendable because we know of the suffering that this noble people has suffered. and of the shortages it suffers as a consequence of the Marxist-Leninist system that has prevailed there for 62 years. Notwithstanding the foregoing, I have nothing to praise because, knowing how the government that holds power in Nicaragua is known, it occurs to me that what they are doing they are doing with the following objectives:

  1. To look good with the Cuban dictatorship by helping to lower the popular pressure that it has had, mainly since last July 11, when the Cuban people took to the streets demanding freedom and the end of rationing.
  2. Faced with the possibility of economic collapse, send people to the US, via Nicaragua, to increase the remittances they receive from Cuban workers abroad.

It should be noted that, since the beginning of the Revolution in 1959 of the last century, Cuba has always been a parasitic regime, fundamentally depending on foreign aid. In its first stage, from the former Soviet Union with 3 billion dollars a year and then from the Chavista regime of Venezuela that in just 5 years gave them 80 billion dollars in aid through oil and the so-called cultural exchanges, which did not They are more than the exploitation of Cuban professionals (doctors, teachers, etc.) as the most vivid expression of modern slavery. Both the nomenclature of the Cuban regime and that of the Venezuelan, know perfectly that the political and economic model inspired by Marxism-Leninism does not work and that any government of any country that intends to follow in its footsteps will be heading inexorably towards the abyss.

If some doubt what I am saying here, ask why more than 1 million Cubans are in exile in Miami (USA), the 5 million Venezuelans who are scattered around the world and the most of 150 thousand Nicaraguans, which are just the beginning. However, I must publicly acknowledge the excellent work carried out by the Secretary General of the OAS, Luis Almagro, and the collateral organizations that accompany him, for conforming to the principles of the Inter-American Democratic Charter and International Law, despite the Shameful complicity of certain governments, which, using despicable pretexts, prefer to be united with the dictatorship by abstaining from voting, than to accompany the long-suffering Nicaraguan people in their just yearnings for democracy and freedom.

In such cases, it is opportune to recall what in the crucial moments of the heroic struggle of our people, against the dynastic dictatorship of the Somoza in 1979, expressed the president of Venezuela, Carlos Andrés Pérez: “The principle of Non-Intervention should never serve to pander to dictatorships. “

To reaffirm the failure of dictatorships in Latin America, let me tell you an anecdote that happened in the revolutionary Cuba of Fidel Castro. Two giants of Latin American literature: Pablo Neruda, Chilean, 1971 Nobel Prize Winner for Literature, and Miguel Ángel Asturias, Guatemalan, 1967 Nobel Prize Winner for Literature, were invited to participate in an international writers conference in Havana. During the 3 days that the meeting lasted, Asturias and Neruda took the opportunity to visit part of the Island and talk with people from the common people. When the conference ended and they were heading to the airport, the taxi driver was surprised when he heard Neruda say: “What a pity, Miguel Ángel, that we spend our lives defending countries in which we cannot live.”

So, the question is: Are we Nicaraguans going to resignedly allow them to lead our beloved Nicaragua down that infernal road full of insecurities? Surely not: Homeland and Life we ​​will win!
