An excellent documentary. Whether you agree with Fidel or not, there is no doubt he is a very intelligent individual. In reality, no one is truly free from oppression, not even in a country like Canada. Considering the U.S has had an embargo against Cuba for over 40 years, it is amazing how well their people have persevered. Check out documentaries on CIA activites in Cuba, (putting powdered cement in the Cuban milk supply) and you soon realize Fidel is a necessary thorn in the rearend of the U.S, whose people need to be reminded that totalitarian societies come in many forms, even those who would have you believe are democratic. Live long, and prosper everyone!
