Cuba: Absence of Ads

Circles Robinson says that “Cuba’s policy to live without commercial advertising is clearly one of the things that make it different.”

    En cuba hay muchisimos avisos! solo que TODOS son de fidel y el che, ….hay monton de vallas, paredones, pancartas, etc.

    justamente lo que me parecio curioso fue que en lugar de NO haber publicidad, si habia, exactamente igual, con eslogans y todo, solo que el producto es uno solo, como lo quiere el presidente-tenientecoronel de venezuela Ego Chavez; el gobierno todopoderoso.

    de verdad me parecio patetico, y aburridisimo.
    patetico pues teniendo la posibilidad de no tener la contaminacion visual que suponen las vallas, la tienen. patetico que el mismo gobierno sea un mercader de su propia imagen, al estilo disney world, miles de sueteres, franelas, albumes, libros, postales, cachuchas, pero con la cara del che.

    aburridisimo porque debe ser atrofiante pasar 50 años con la misma imagen y los mismos slogans y los mismos discursos interminables del presidente, y el mismo, unico periodico, el granma, que ademas de horrible, es aburridisimo!
