Visions of Power in Cuba

After 1961, Fidel Castro inaugurated a new set of purely fidelista political sacraments and rituals, including group meditation on Fidel's own speeches and house-to-house visits by Communist proselytizers as a way of cleansing doubt from the consciousness of workers and peasants. This chapter shows that the revolutionary leadership's struggle to make Communism Cuban by making Cubans Communist inevitably generated conflict and criticism among formerly unconditional supporters.

Keywords:   Fidel Castro, fidelista, Communist proselytizers, Communism, Cubans
