Abstract:

For the past 40 years Cuba has maintained a socialist society firmly engrained in ideological beliefs. The beliefs of communism has shaped the hearts and minds of thousands of cubans. This paper provides a future perspective on Cubas transition as well as identifies potential actors who will emerge as potential leaders once Fidel Castro is gone. Additionally, the paper will propose that Communism may not survive once Fidel is gone. In fact, the paper proposes that it has been Fidels Charisma that has allowed him to remain in power and not communism.
