  • Nationalism. A big part of the answer, I think, lies in where Cuba’s situation really is different from Eastern Europe, mainly is because nationalism cuts the other way. When Stalinism expanded following World War II into the devastated states of Central and Eastern Europe, a totalitarian bureaucratic system and “command economy” was imposed by the historic oppressor of those nations. National grievances coincided with the growth of social discontent.

    Cuba somewhat resembles Vietnam. Where the Communist Party unified the country after decades of war, against French colonialism and U.S. imperialism.
