Communism: is the Long March over?

"The Cuban system no longer works for Cuba." These are Fidel Castro’s word to The Atlantic, an American newspaper. The last living symbol of the old Communist world doubts communism still works. At the age of 83, after illness and handing over the reigns of power to his brother Raúl, Fidel Castro has come to a conclusion that his faithful followers might find hard to take.
