On its present course, Communist Cuba is doomed. Its current population of 11 million is projected to dwindle to just 1 million by 2025. This makes sense. Who would feel good about creating new people in that miserable, hopeless socialist hellhole?
So naturally the Cuban regime has created government-run
“love motels” (i.e., affordable rooms for fornicating) … throughout the state due to the fact that public sex in public parks is getting out of hand. The country’s continued housing crisis means multiple generations sleep under the same roof, while divorced duos can’t afford to not continue living together.
Instructing the population to copulate to benefit the state is not without precedent in totalitarian societies. It was done in Fascist Italy and the orders were explicit.
As Victoria de Grazia wrote in How Fascism Ruled Women: Italy, 1922-1945 (University of California Pres, 1992, page 69), Benito Mussolini’s dictatorship linked arms with the church “to denounce coitus interruptus as an abhorrent ‘fraud against the laws of nature, God, and the state.”
Bologna’s self-styled “demographic” mayor (podesta) A. Manaresi made explicit the Duce’s “lofty admonition” to reproduce: “Screw and leave it in! Orders of the party!” (“Dunque chiavate e lasciatelo dentro! Ordine del partito.”)
