In essence, Hidalgo's analysis was similar to the ideas that had been advanced in Poland a decade or more earlier by intellectuals like Jacek Kuron and Adam Michnik: Marxism had produced its own forms of alienation; bourgeois ownership of the means of production had given way to "nothing more than a formalistic socialism, ruled by a caste of bureaucrats." In 1980, Hidalgo expressed his opposition to the treatment of Cubans leaving the country via Mariel, who were publicly vilified and attacked in mass "acts of repudiation." State security agents raided his home and found his manuscript, and Hidalgo was given an eight-year sentence for "undermining the ideology of young people from below" and "ideological diversionism."
