The discussion was fascinating, especially for the way to revealed the great chasm between global orthodox expectations--unmoved by Cuban ideological difference, other than to produce expressions of frustrated impatience--those the unrealistic expectations of the Cuban vanguard that continues to believe it may still bend the world (at least enough) to its ideological will. It was especially interesting for the way in which an ever more tightly knotted together web of legalized trade and commercial regimes are being woven among liberal democratic states, one that may have to be ready for the inevitable challenge frm its competitor systems arising elsewhere. And that competition, perhaps, is what Cuba will ultimately bank on to win such a small enough place to survive more or less apart and intact.
For those of you unable to attend, ASCE, with the support of the Coalition for Peace & Ethics, has recorded the event and posted it to the Coalition for Peace & Ethics YouTube Channel. I will likely be posted elsewhere by the other sponsoring organizations, each of which will post their own announcement. We hope you find the discussion interesting and thought provoking We welcome your views. The video is posted to the CPE YouTube Channel (HERE for the ASCE Webinar Series 2021 Playlist) and the specific webinar may be accessed HERE.
