Writing is a way to be useful if you believe that our long-suffering 
humanity must be better, and more fully educated, given the incredible 
ignorance in which we are all enveloped, with the exception of 
researchers who in the sciences seek satisfactory answers. This is a 
word which implies in a few letters its immense content.

All of us in our youth heard talk at some point about Einstein, in 
particular after the explosion of the atomic bombs which pulverized 
Hiroshima and Nagasaki, putting an end to the cruel war between the 
United States and Japan.

When those bombs were dropped, after the war unleashed by the attack on 
the U.S. base at Pearl Harbor, the Japanese Empire had already been 
defeated. The United States, whose territory and industries remained 
removed from the war, became the country with the greatest wealth and 
the best weaponry on Earth, in a world torn apart, full of death, the 
wounded and hungry.

The Soviet Union and China together lost more than 50 million lives, 
along with enormous material damage. Almost all of the gold in the world 
landed in the vaults of the United States. Today it is estimated that 
the entirety of this country’s gold reserves reached 8,133.5 tons of 
this metal. Despite that, tearing up the Bretton Woods accords they 
signed, the United States unilaterally declared that it would not 
fulfill its duty to back the Troy ounce with the value in gold of its 
paper money.

The measure ordered by Nixon violated the commitments made by President 
Franklin Delano Roosevelt. According to a large number of experts on the 
subject, the foundation of a crisis was created, which among other 
disasters threatens to powerfully batter the economy of this model of a 
country. Meanwhile, Cuba is owed compensation equivalent to damages, 
which have reached many millions of dollars, as our country has 
denounced throughout our interventions in the United Nations, with 
irrefutable arguments and facts.

As has been expressed with clarity by Cuba’s Party and government, to 
advance good will and peace among all the countries of this hemisphere 
and the many peoples who are part of the human family, and thus 
contribute to the survival of our species in the modest place the 
universe has conceded us, we will never stop struggling for peace and 
the well-being of all human beings, for every inhabitant on the planet 
regardless of skin color or national origin, and for the full right of 
all to hold a religious belief or not.

The equal right of all citizens to health, education, work, food, 
security, culture, science, and wellbeing, that is, the same rights we 
proclaimed when we began our struggle, in addition to those which emerge 
from our dreams of justice and equality for all inhabitants of our 
world, is what I wish for all. To those who share all or part of these 
same ideas, or superior ones along the same lines, I thank you, dear 

Fidel Castro Ruz
