It's not a location. Stalwart journalist Michael Totten reports from the land of Fidel (via Samizdata). His account is full of fascinating information, but I was especially struck by this observation:
I had to lie by omission every minute of every hour of every day just like the Cubans. A person could get used to this sort of thing, I suppose, but that does not make it less alienating. That’s the counterintuitive thing about totalitarian systems. They herd people into Borg-like collectives, yet every individual is savagely atomized.
I never felt so alone in my life.
