A hi-tech political vision for Cuba
CUBA 2.0 is a political project for an imminently open and democratic Cuba the will maximally leverage technological advancements in favor of Human Dignity and Planetary Health.
The Cult of Dignity
Human Dignity should be at the center of any political project. José Martí wanted ” The Cult of the full Dignity of mankind to be the 1st law of the Republic” that’s our goal as well.
Economic advancement means little without Cultural Enlightenment, and many times these two are at odds. At CUBA 2.0 we understand the need for an integral approach to society
Technology is an Intellectual, Moral and Physical force multiplier. Without careful deployment, technology can bring great risk to our psyches, societies, ecosystems and the planet itself.
“ I want the first law of our republic to be the cult of the full dignity of mankind ”
With these words José Martí the truly brilliant poet, philosopher, essayist, journalist, translator, professor, publisher, diplomat and Cuban national hero formulated a single heuristic that could redefine the quality of every person-to-person (P2P) and institution-to-person (I2P) interaction.
The benefit of interpreting reality from a framework of idealism is that it maximizes the allowance and possibility for improvement and change. Yes, things can be radically better, astronomically better in quite a literal sense if we are brave enough to face the challenges that mediate between a mediocre present and a bright future.
It is a very easy game to imagine a better world if we ignore the mechanisms and dynamics that need to be observed, respected and eventually adjusted in order to actualize the shared aspiration of an improved planetary collective experience.
