That was demonstrated by the then Cuban Minister of the Armed Forces, Raul Castro, when the case of Ochoa and others.
He said then that he had looked in the mirror and his face ran thick tears for the children of those condemned to death. He was rehearsing to make a show before the Council of State and Ministers, so they would see that he was as human as the others.

At least Fidel did not make any fuss. The true owners of a country never cry. They say that ever since he was a child he never cried when he felt like his mother's breast, nor when he was beaten.

What is the name of this existential dichotomy?
