How socialist countries modernize

Watching the speed-of-light daily revolution in technology in our lives, one wonders how "progress" would take hold if a centralized government were in charge of technology.  (Of course, D.C. "planners" do try valiantly to take hold of every aspect of our lives, including galloping tech advances.)

Well, look no further than Cuba to see how hard it is to get high-speed internet service to the island, something that has reached every other corner of the western world. 

NY Times has it here.

It is utterly amazing what people will endure in the name of socialism.  This is, of course, the creeping, crawling encroachment that we have invited into our lives with leaders both Republican and Democrat.
