    conspiracies during the cold war, and I've read conspiracy sites where they really think the government is doing that, especially the truthers.  I got really interested in conspiracy culture for a while.  There are all kinds of flame wars and everything, just like here, but way, WAY more crazy.

    The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

    •  Cuban missile crisis as example (4+ / 0-)

      I was in Cuba during the 40th anniversary of the crisis, when the TV there was broadcasting a conference in Havana of people from the US, Cuba, and former USSR who had been involved in 1962. The amazing thing for my Cuban friends was that the Cuban (and Soviet) government participants admitted that yes, there really HAD been Soviet nukes on Cuban soil. For 40 years Cubans were taught that the whole thing had been made up by the US as a pretext to invade Cuba again. They were shocked to find out that the US version was accurate -- and that there had been missiles sited on the outskirts of the city where we were staying.
