Cuba Backsliding

The Economist describes how Fidel Castro is taking Cuba in the wrong direction:

A YEAR ago, Fidel Castro faced a decision. Cuba's fledgling democratic movement was becoming more vocal. After a partial recovery from a long slump, the economy had slowed again. In response, Mr Castro—in power since 1959—chose to lead his country not into the democratic future that it could almost glimpse, but back into its totalitarian past. A year on, he is still going backwards.
