Host: The Heritage Foundation. As the United States moves to install its eleventh President since Fidel Castro seized power, we as a people must once again reflect upon the cost and consequences of the Cuban Revolution and upon the continuing obstacles that separate the world’s greatest democracy from a still intact totalitarian regime. As the United States looks to the future, it must weigh potential trade offs between principles and pragmatism, between openness to the Cuban people and their aspirations for political and economic freedom and accommodation and appeasement of Cuba’s unreformed and inflexible communist leadership. Finding the correct way forward requires a sound grasp of where we have been as well as principles to guide us in the years ahead.
