Another Socialist Paradise. Cuba Tells Citizens To "Grow Your Own Food" Or Starve

The pandemic has exposed the fragility of the Caribbean island's food supply chain as produce, poultry and other basic item shortages develop. 
The topic of food security has been a hot subject with the communist party. Several state media broadcasters aired televised roundtable discussions about the issue, reported Reuters
"Cuba can and must develop its program of municipal self-sustainability definitively and with urgency, in the face of the obsessive and tightened US blockade and the food crisis COVID-19 will leave," Jose Ramon Machado Ventura, deputy leader of the Cuban Communist Party, was quoted on state media Monday. 

Frankly, growing your own food is a good idea no matter where you live.  In a Socialist world, it's counter revolutionary, as it teaches people to rely on themselves rather than the state.  In this case, the state is bankrupt of both ideas and resources, so, back to the people they go.


  1. The Worker's paradises are all starving. Imagine that.

    1. Yeah, that stood out to me too. I was under the impression that Cuba was under an embargo (we won't trade with them), not a blockade (no one is allowed to trade with them).

      Given that the quote is from a Commie, it's probably a lie.

    2. Plenty of nice luxury goods are available from sister Republic of Venezuela, Comrade.

  3. When harvest time comes you will find your plants stripped bare by the lazy / entitled. Unless you have an armed group to keep the parasites at bay or turn them into fertilizer.
