On whom will the thaw have the most effect?
Which side will change most from the thaw? Being the optimist, I have always thought that US society will be more affected by a thaw in relations than Cuba will. Take for example how the Republicans, after years of claiming Cuba was a supporter of terrorism, have given up the fight so quickly? Or this from a New Jersey IT leader:
"Before my first trip, I was told to expect little more than a communist dictatorship filled with unhappy and poor people. I can only speak for what I observed: that is not what I saw in the many meetings I held, or in the many areas of Cuba I visited. Rather, I found one of the most literate, healthy, educated, cultured, proud, warm and happy societies on the planet."
Could that be said of the USA?
