: The one quote that tells us about the REAL motivations of those who oppose Castro.

Don't you think it is a bit of a stretch to say that the Ambassadors remarks were made with the consent and complicity of every anti-Castro person?

: The American ambassador to Cuba during the Batista days, a fanatical anti-Castroite, said the following:

: "I've lived in two eras. One where [America] was ruled by the classes, and today when it's ruled by the masses. Something in between is probably best, but I'll be honest. I liked it better when it was ruled by the classes."

: Can you say 'aristocracy'?

Yes...I can also say it in Greek. Aristos (not sure how to make Greek characters on my computer) means "good," or "best." However, I am more partial to "elite rule."

Unfortunately, aristocracy now has connotations of inbred royalty that just leeches off its country in the name of "divine rule." Ah well.
