You believe it because ypu read a book that validates your pre-existing beliefs. Why should anyone else believe it?
I just said it was authoritarian which is common knowledge. Communist governments led by strongmen in power essentially for life are authoritarian. If you doubt it go there and publically call for the overthrow of its government.
I know what your opinion is. I know many others, including Cubans, who are of a different opinion.
Now, seeing as you have no evidence to support your claim that Cuba's longevity is due to its supposed authoritarianism, I am going to dismiss this claim.
