Fidel Castro has long been convinced of capitalism's doom, but he was gratified this week to receive fresh confirmation from the Guardian.Cubans may not be able to afford cocaine but there's no reason they shouldn't make money off it. Those living in communist utopias must make do with cheaper addictions.
Cuba's former president seized on the paper's report of surging cocaine production as further proof of the "incurable crisis" afflicting western economies.
Karl Marx nailed the idea first, of course, but the Guardian's article on Monday was better late than never in exposing the fatal consequences of market-driven decadence.
