Futurama

November 21, 2009

The Cuban government is taking pages straight out of George Orwell and Minority Report. In a new report from Human Rights Watch called “New Castro, Same Cuba“,

The Raúl Castro government has harassed and imprisoned dissidents using an Orwellian provision of the Cuban Criminal Code that punishes “dangerousness.” Authorities can lock up individuals on the suspicion that they may commit a crime in the future, or for engaging in behavior that is “antisocial” or contrary to “socialist morality.”

Move over John Anderton (Tom Cruise), there’s a new kid on the block and his name is Raúl Castro.
