Future scenarios: Battle of ideas or guns?

The sign behind Fidel Castro says battles in the future will be fought with ideas, not guns. But I wonder whether the fight over Cuba will eventually turn violent.

I think Cuba has quietly forfeited the game in the battle of ideas. Last I heard the top departmental individuals (I forget the name of the ministry that this charade fell under) were quietly pushed aside in one of the reshuffles that have happened since Raul took over.
Basically, the office was eliminated, and the individuals fired or transferred to other places.

I think you're right about that.
