Alejandro:
 
You didn't answer this question:
 
 
> What bureaucratic privileges and (personal) wealth are you referring to? Special access to Cuban cigars?
 
but instead made other claims, such as:

 
> But in the situation of lack of almost any kind of mechanisms of accountability in Cuba,
 
There are mechanisms of accountability: note what happened to a Cuban official who was
found to be guilty of trafficking drugs.
 
> how can you trust Jerry that the advantages Castro takes confine themselves to having Cuban cigars?
 
WHAT advantages?
 
> Donít you think that this position seems to rests upon an act of faith?
 
 
No, it is a progressive and critical position: it demands *proof* from reliable and
independent sources for the claims that you are making. As for the austerity of
the Cuban people which you refer to, this is a consequence of US imperialism
and its violations of international law in relation to Cuba.
 
In solidarity, Jerry
