Díaz-Canel, the Fishing Law and demagogy in Cuba

LAS TUNAS, Cuba. – This Christmas, early in the morning, I found a very interesting conversation in the bakery, which shows how demagogy works in Cuba, restricting the civic values ​​of the nation. In the line to buy the bread, rationed and mixed with who knows what exogenous ingredients, someone said that the border guards, the police and the inspectors were “fishermen hunters”.

“Yes sir, abusers is what they are, they do nothing but persecute decent and humble people, who after spending hours in the sea, it is no longer uncommon for a fisherman to end up fined and with the fish and gear confiscated,” said one, when another raised his voice to say:

“That is going to end, Díaz-Canel spoke about the Fishing Law, I saw it on television, and he said that this was unfair, that there could be no law so that Cubans, who are surrounded by the sea, do not have fish”.

But the depth bomb, the one that dissolved the group of opinion makers by making them go silent, was thrown by someone when he asked: “And who signed that criminal fishing law like that, Trump?”

Responding to that perceptive question, the applauders of Díaz-Canel, who, like a vigilante Robin Hood, now refers to some laws that work like barbed wire on the fences of a pasture, should have known that he himself was, yes, the signature of those legal rolls.

The Law No. 129, Fishing Lawwhich orders, manages and controls the hydrobiological resources in maritime, fluvial and lake waters (lagoons, swamps and reservoirs where the authorities can also fine someone for fishing “outlaw” some tilapia) in the Republic of Cuba, with the purpose —according to its article 1— of “contributing to the food sovereignty of the nation”, was approved by the National Assembly of Popular Power (ANPP) on July 13, 2019, entering into force 180 days after its publication in the Official Gazette.

But according to the Constitution of the Republic of Cuba in its article 128 subparagraph d), “it corresponds to the President of the Republic to endorse the laws issued by the National Assembly and to order their publication in the Official Gazette”; for which Díaz-Canel now criticizes or intends to impute iniquities other than himself, and Prime Minister Manuel Marrero -signer of Decree 1, which is the Regulation of the Fisheries Law-, endorsed before these laws entered into force. So it is worth asking: before what political event are we? And we can only answer: we are in the presence of a demagogic discourse.

In this case, and psychologically speaking, the demagogic discourse of Castro-communism used by Díaz-Canel, the ministers and commissioners of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC), is based on the demagogy used as lateral thinking, that is, the technique that allows the regime to if not to solve long-term strategic problems, to entrench yourself in daily life, appealing to emotions, fears or hopes, through a daily bombardment, at all levels, of a rhetorical, hollow discourse, amplified by all the media and based on misinformation or misrepresentation of facts through political propaganda.

But Castro’s lateral thinking, instead of functioning as an engine of social change, has been anchored for more than half a century in immobility, as the elements that should sustain a strategy thus conceived, which are the verification of the assumptions for which they must be formulated. Logical and creative questions do not fit into the forms of official discourse, which is a commonwealth of oratory and fallacy in the denial of other opinions or options that are not accepted by the PCC monopoly.

Speeches like the ones we have recently heard from the “president” and First Secretary of the PCC, Miguel Díaz-Canel, projecting himself as a fraternal person and hurt by the difficulties suffered by his fellow citizens, together with legal procedures that are invasive of universally recognized rights, but judged in Cuba, which crimes, have led to the political ignorance of an important part of Cuban society, making it elusive, pusillanimous and lacking in civic values.

It hurts to admit it, but it is indubitable. Sunk by wordy communist demagogy, it will be easier for the Cuban nation to emerge from the economic crisis it is suffering today than to emerge from the swamps of fear and hypocrisy.
