After the Mourning, the Grief

After the Mourning, the Grief / Fernando Dámaso

Fernando Damaso, 14 December 2016 — It seems that, the nine days of
national mourning having ended, it is now extended into interminable
grief, imposed by the official media, trying to sanctify the image of
the deceased with a virtual eternity. It gives the strange sensation
that his spirit continues to govern the country, and that he is the one
dictating orders and regulations.

Violating the most elemental limits of reason, the idea has arisen of
including his ideas in the curriculum of every major this
coming year, taking into account the “genius” of his content that,
ironically, led the country to misery and has made it one of the worst
economies in the world.

Documentaries, books, poems, articles, photographs, paintings and songs
beset Cuba’s citizens day and night, repeated many times, causing
rejection rather than acceptance, and everything related to him has
quickly become part of the island’s “choteo,” an unending stream of
bitter humor. You just have to walk our streets with an attentive ear.

Excesses always bring bad results and are paid for dearly. This is
something the Cuban authorities should know, after so many years of
exercising power.
