The Communist Manifesto isn’t the only book on the former Cuban dictator’s mantel.

Castro reportedly has a new summer read: Daniel Estulin’s 2006 piece, “The Secrets of the Bilderberg Club.” The Lithuanian writer focuses on the notion of world control, which he believes rests in the aforementioned international organization. Founded in 1954, its claim to fame is a closed annual forum of big-name politicians and pontificators alike, which has caught the eye of different governments across the globe.

Add Cuba’s former main man to that list, as the AP notes that Castro used excerpts from the book in an article he published on Wednesday. He highlighted the “sinister cliques and the Bilderberg lobbyists” main plan: “to install a world government that knows no borders and is not accountable to anyone but its own self.”

Castro’s choice sparks one question: where do trade embargoes fit into that “knows no borders” equation?
