Castro is nothing but a 2-bit Marxist thug...
Typical lying lowlife--who had to, naturally, bulls_ _ t everyone in the media that would listen.
Ask about his opinion on gay rights, etc.
He "doesn't think the communists could get control ..."
Lie-lie-lie--that's what Marxist Communism is all about...

Gay people have had protections under the law in Cuba since 1992. The United States Supreme Court didn't strike down the remaining sodomy laws until 2003.

Also, Cuba isn't Communist, It's Socialist. Two entirely different systems. The capitalist portion of the economy in Cuba has suffered more because of the Embargo than any internal situation.

Umm.. cuban (as venezuelan) socialism is just a disguise for their communism.. plus communism never worked.. it didn't 50 yrs ago, it doesn't now..

Not really,
it hasn't been until recently that Cuba has opened up to the gay community. in fact, during the early portion of the Revolution, Gays were sent to prison camps because they did not fit the 'Socialist Ideal".

And I'm pretty sure that Cuba is Communist. I mean the Cuban Communist Party has had one party elections for quite sometime. and the capitalist portion of the economy has suffered more because of Fidel Castro's attempts to outlaw capitalism, than the actual embargo.

It will always be hard for people in the Western world to form a clear opinion about Castro. The propaganda from western sources made him out to be worse than he was, whereas Castro's own propaganda made him out to be better than he was. As is often the case, the truth probably lies in the middle somewhere.

But i think we could agree that he saved Cuba, not only by overthrowing Batista, but also by establishing free education and health-care, and uniting the people, gave the Cubans hope, the bitching exiles, should not have a say about this aswell.
And of course, as any strong leader, he ordered a lot of killings, but i believe that was necessary.
Anyhow, Fidel is one of the greatest men ever lived.
LogicHead (5 months ago) 0 Reply
Strong leadership is being a uniting force without violence and killings.

Great men respect the life of all other human beings on the planet. That is greatness.

Whatever your views on Castro may be Mika, greatness and killing people do not go together. We are all living, breathing human beings. You, me, Castro, Eisenhower, JFK... we are all humans. No one individual made that happen. The greats recognise it and establish it as the foundation of their life's work.

If they didn't shot the few counterrevolutionaires there were (56 to be exact, of course some more during the civil war but that was war) then many more would have died under the batista regime. You cannot free a people who are being colonized by the most powerful country in the world right next door without killing. Being "humane" at all times at all costs is just as inhumane as doing nothing against the suffering in the world.
LogicHead (5 months ago) 0 Reply
fokkhof2:If you scratch the surface of international politics, it is only governments, including Cuba's and the USA's, which benefit from having countries. If you require killings or war (be it external or internal) to free a people, you are not free. You are just another killer. You are enslaved by your own fear that you will be deposed.

I never advocated "doing nothing". I advocated being a uniting force without violence and killings. That is greatness. Success is not guaranteed either way.
fokkhof2 (5 months ago) 0 Reply
Don't compare the Cuban government to the US government. In Cuba the people are the government, in the US the people with money are the government.

You cannot unite the oppressor and the oppressed. The oppressor will always use violence when he sees his end is near. No oppressor will ever voluntary lay down his arms. So what you're advocating is actually just helping them. That's why they always nag about "human rights", "no killing" etc, because it's bad for them, not for the people.
LogicHead (5 months ago) 0 Reply
I am speaking here as a human being fokkhof. I have known people that have died and on that basis I am making the claim that killing people is wasteful. I have experienced this. If a political system requires people to kill people, I'll pass. Especially if the killing is required at the start.

Life and diversity are grander than any political system. Every day I take rich, deep breaths of air. I do this regardless of the political system. If I advocate anything to start, that is it. Breathe!
fokkhof2 (5 months ago) 0 Reply
Killing people is always a cruelty, but in a revolution it's a necessary evil. If the oppressor would lay down the arms voluntary and give the power, freedom to the people, it would be the greatest thing ever. But such things will never happen. Do you think this system doesn't require to kill people? Starving people to death, shooting them when they protest, assasinating trade-union members and communist party members, rings a bell?
fokkhof2 (5 months ago) +3 Reply
Life and diversity are indeed grander than any political system. That's why we need to change this system, if necessary with violence. Because this system doesn't care about life and diversity. It cares about power and money. Go visit the countries that make your wealth possible because big companies are exploiting them to make you live in luxury. You'll see what I mean.

If hundred(s) need to die so thousands, millions can live, it's a pitty but so be it.
LogicHead (5 months ago) 0 Reply
Is it possible for *any* system to care about life and diversity fokkhof2? Isn't it up to us as individuals to do that? Can concepts or written words care? If an idea (including *both* the preservation or overthrow) of a system takes hold, what stops it? Another revolution/overthrow? Go and kill someone who is loved by another and tell the latter it is for the greater good. Won't many then take up arms *against you* to stop you spreading "the greater good"?

To be clear, I can be equally
fokkhof2 (5 months ago) +1 Reply
No they won't. Because there's always a minority oppressing the majority under capitalism. I'm not talking about any "greater good". I'm talking about freeing the oppressed minority from the oppressing minority. Only christians and hippies think they can change the world with love and peace. Do you really think the oppressing class will ever give away their power without fighting? Do you think people will ever be free without fighting for it? An idea can't take hold. People can. And they should.

healthy under communism as I can be under capitalism. I can monitor my own breathing, water-intake, cooking, eating, dancing, working etc. I consider myself blessed to do that and more-so to share it. As for luxury, the only item I have is this here internet connection. In the last five years everything has been budget. Food, clothing, accommodation and transport.

I am well travelled fokkhof2 - including villages in sub-Saharan Africa. May I ask specifically what it is that is bothering you?

He didn't save Cuba, he took Cuba from one dictatorship to another. All you've said is the same propaganda that has been force fed to supporters of Castro. Can't a free healthcare system come about through Democracy (France's system is ranked first, Cuba's is ranked 39th by WHO) Castro used his strong leadership skills to manipulate people into thinking he wanted to establish a democracy. Those exiles are the ones who were betrayed by Castro, and who hope to someday see a democracy.
Mika151 (1 month ago) -4 Reply
But who says a dictatorship is bad? I'd rather have one good leader than a bad democracy. And yes, he did save cuba, did you see how it was when batista was leader? it was a fucking whorehouse, castro took all that away.

A representative democracy has safeguards against tyrannical rule and respects the rights of its people. If Hitler, or Stalin had ousted a dictator and provided free healthcare, would that take away from the grave human rights violations they put forth on their own people, no I didn't think so. A bad dictatorship is much worse than a bad demcoracy. In a democracy there are ways to peacefuly oust a leader, while in a dictatorship, like Cuba, the leader does not respect the individual rights.
Frogstomp121 (1 month ago) +1 Reply
The U.S. doesn't violate their own people, only the people of other countries.

Try the Philippine massacre during the Spanish American war, the acquisition of Guam, Puerto Rico, and Cuba, coups in Guatemala and Chile, invading Grenada, invading Nicaragua in the Iran-Contra affair, nuking hundreds of thousand innocent Japanese, invading Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, training Islamists against the Soviets, etc.

A nation like this who will invade at will is in fact a terrorist nation.

Oh and btw, when castro finally opened up Cuba to foreign investment in the late 90's, prostitution returned. Now foreigners visit Cuba not only for its beaches that are off limits to regular cubans (who can;t afford to stay) but also for its sex tourism. In otherwords, Cuba has become a whorehouse once again....

yeah the only difference is now the whole country is a whorehouse and they got children for sale. waiting for fat tourists to come and do them. now the cuban people is nothing but slaves wich only purpose is to serve a small group of tyrants who live like the most wealthy people in the world while they watch the suffering and poverty cuban people live each day.

babyblack1985 (6 months ago) +3 Reply
Castro isn't a dictator, he's a Communist leader. Also, I think you'll find the majority of Cubans support him. Cuban Americans never did, and therefore never will support him. Why is it so hard for Americans to accept ideas different from their own?

i cant tell im not american...i guess that we could debate on cubans support to their leader...sadly they dont have internet...from movies ive seen cubans are living in trash...you might say they have free social care but they have so many restrictions that its amazing...theres no such thing as comunism its just utopia
leonidos01 (6 months ago) -2 Reply
well i agree that most cubans that actually live in Cuba, not that they support him.. they just haven't seen anything else. They, as Dushevna says, live in trash. Cuba is a poor island which before Castro was like an awesome paradise.. i feel really sorry for cubans..

Castro, unlike other Communist leaders such Lenin or Mao, became converted to the ideology AFTER he took power while the others were Communists before sezing power.
In fact the transition years (1959-1962) demonstrated how ideologically ambiguous the Revolution was. Khrushchev said it best to reporters in NY in 1960: "Fidel is not a Communist, but will be one in two years thanks to American Pressure". In 1962, that prophecy becomes true.
LogicHead (5 months ago) 0 Reply
The closest you can come to a communist leader is a tribal elder who has to physically sit and eat with their tribe on a daily basis.

As we currently define the term 'country', it is not possible to have a communist country. Political leaders like Mao, Stalin or Castro are not communist. If they were, their goal would be to dissolve the government and let communities establish their own rules of thumb for co-existing.

Countries are just a blip on world history. Feel free to question me.
fokkhof2 (5 months ago) 0 Reply
Of course it's not possible to have a communist country in the scientific term. What we call "communist countries" are actually "socialist countries", i.e. a period (after the revolution) of transition between capitalism and the classless society. Under socialism a government is needed to destroy and opress the former ruling class, the capitalist counterrevolutionairies. Stalin, Mao and Castros goal was to dissolve the government, but taht's not possible as long as capitalism exists in the world
LogicHead (5 months ago) 0 Reply
A revolution sowes the seeds of fear in the people that opposition will wind up getting them shot. People die fokkhof. Orphans are left. This carries through for longer than any socialist leader can stay alive. With time, an orphan or their son etc may try to seize power...

War among govts is just more war.

Besides all that, Marx created a no-win situation because acting on his writings is "orders from on high".

In the end, I know I am reponsible for my health. The system is secondary.
fokkhof2 (5 months ago) 0 Reply
No. A revolution sowes the seeds of HOPE in the people. Opposition will wind up getting them shot anyway. Orphans are left anyway, because people are underfed and exploited. A revolution is not a war amongst governments, it's a war between the people and the oppressor.

I think you haven't read marx' writings.

The system is primary. Maybe not here in the west, but that's because we can live of cheap goods made by africans, latin-americans and south asians.

I'm half Cuban and as I know Cuban people don't like him. It's true that he made a lot of things better but my family is shared because of the obstacles with traveling thanks to his laws.
"Communism" as a historical-philosophical noun means the last and most perfect station of communist but in Marx's ideology it's only possible in a rich country. So neither Fidel is Marxist nor Cuba is a communist country.

fokkhof2 (5 months ago) 0 Reply
The question is, how many people, women, children, would have died if the revolutionairies weren't there, and if they didn't destroy the regime and if they didn't create a socialist state. Many, many more. Fidel Castro and Che Guevara are two of the most heroic men in history, they liberated a people and brought them glory and happiness. Don't compare Cuba to a western capitalist country; compare it to the rest of latin america. They're much, much better off.
autonomodelmundo (4 months ago) 0 Reply
If you really think about it, in regards to El Salvador why do you only point the finger at one side of the coin? What about the dictatorship and the paramilitary death squads supported and funded by the CIA? They are innocent? It's only the FMLN and Castro to blame? That's not fair at all. Why doesn't Washington let these people figure out how they want to interpret Democracy? Why must they ALWAYS intervene?

Cuba was a rich paradise before Fidel? What? Maybe for rich Americans. How about all the working people who were exploited by Batista and large American corporations, making next to nothing on latifundios. Then came Fidel, and now all have a chance at a great education among other opportunities. I agree that the country is financially crippled, but don't you think the trade embargo is a major part of that.

Apparently yes, he did not want communism. Che conducted some secret talks with the Kennedy administration to retain the system. This created some differences and friction with Castro. It is said that Castro ended up hating him, and that's the main reason for Che to leave for Bolivia which he tried to take over with 12 guerrilleros.

The reason i say they are incomparable is that Stalin killed probably about 40 million people his idea of justice was to kill people at random Castro is also a dictator but his goverment corrupt and as bad as it is, It is still better than the former goverment of Baptista and that is the main difference, Fidel is a improvement and Stalin isn't.

2. To say that Fidel was an improvemnt to the Batista's governement has no factual support, other than the problem that arose near the end of the Batista reign involving a climbing unemployment rate.... We could argue forever about which government was better, but it doenst really matter.

But I would get a free education, after volunteer work and life long poverty, but at least my children would be brainwashed into worshiping the Pig Castro and turn me in to the authorities if I write anything here against the Pig.

Cuba is in misery because of the embargo we have in that country for over 30 years. Why?, because the votes that represents. We should do as we say. Also, Cubans can't leave because of Socialism alone, yes, a lot of people would love to flee Cuba, but again, they have an embargo. Look everywhere in South America, there are people who want to flee the fuck out, and those are democratic governments. However Cubans have government that provides health care and education to them. do we?

Cuba is not in misery because of the embargo. Latin America is mostly in misery and there is no embargo. Cuba is in misery because communisom creates misery.

Castro didn't tell the people,he ASKED the people & they said ok to Castro to proceed with the executions. Castro was a true Marxist who always had the people's best interests at heart & gave the people what they wanted & that was to carry out the executions. Castro cared about his people & was not a totalitarian leader. Long Live The Revolution !

In 1959, Castro held a rally before millions over the capture of ex-Batista officials who committed many war crimes & atrocities. Castro asked the people if the ex-Batista officials should be court-martialed & executed & the people said "YES", to go ahead with the 250 executions. Castro felt he did not need to answer to the US or any other nation except to the Cuban people. This is a true demonstration of "Marxism", collective leadership.

If any of you would be living what we are living in Venezuela right now, you'd probably stop making statements about how good is communism. We are doing worse than any other country in the region, just because we have a crazy guy here who is trying to copy all of the terrible things Fidel did. Venezuela was a country to dream about, now Venezuela is becoming a country of emigrants. Professionals are running out of the country. There is no future in Venezuela while communist remain in power.

Communism can lead to totalitarianism, but totalitarianism can lead to anarchism. there's a right & wrong way to run a dictatorship, the right way is to answer to the people, the wrong way is to piss the people off. You don't want to piss off millions of people, there's strength in numbers & you will be overthrown. In Socialist & Communist nations the government is AFRAID of the PEOPLE instead of the other way around. The people are VERY aware of the power they have when they need to use it.

Castro placed people to report on their neighbors on each block. School children were taught there is no God, but rather that Castro is god and they are encouraged to turn in their own parents. Castro punished all who did not agree with him; they're called political prisoners. In Cuba today there is no freedom of the press, of association, of religion, no unions allowed, and of course, no freedom of speech. To say that the people are in charge in the hellish island is criminal and a lie.

The proper way to run a dictatorship is to be able to justify & answer to the people to determine if collective authority shall overrule or endorse the dictator's agenda before the actions are carried out. Fidel Castro was this kind of Marxist leader & so was Joesph Stalin. Saddame Hussein was not. How lond did Castro run Cuba? Hmmmm......50 years? Stalin was never overthrown. Saddame Hussein was a totalitarian leader & thats why he was overthrown & thats why he's gone ! !

Winggullseagull: From what I understand of what you are saying, you believe that the proper way to run a dictatorship is by:

1. Come up with an agenda;
2. Put it to the people to see if it is overruled or endorsed.

Marxism is like our judicial court & criminal justice system. A Marxist leader is like a district attorney & the people are like the jury, just one big giant jury. Doesn't the DA have to build & present a strong enough case to convince a jury to rule in his favor? 2 reasons why Castro was a true Marxist. 1st, the longevity of his dictatorship more or less speaks for itself, & 2nd, before Castro was a revolutionary.............. he was a lawyer. So what does that tell you ??

Actually no, Cuba was put into disaster long before the embargo was introduced by the US. In fact, Castro practically invited the embargo by deciding to nationalize all American companies in the country. Its actually very ironic, that after years of being an "anti-Imperialist" and railing against the US, Castro is now crawling back to the US. And look at you, marcus, you live in a capitalist democracy, and yet here you are defending a communist dictatorship. Shameful.
Frogstomp121 (1 month ago) 0 Reply
Cuba does not crawl to the U.S. and never will. First of all Cuba is not the center of evil that you are led to believe. They give free health care to everyone, free housing, and free education. Women, gays, transvestites, etc. are all given equal rights. Everybody is equal. The trade embargo is a grudge which prevents Cuba from trading with the U.S. or anybody who trades with the U.S. and keeps the country from rising above poverty. However, It is not perfect and neither is your country.
Livingrevolutionary (1 month ago) 0 Reply
Center of Evil, no, but it's still a pretty bad dictatorship, which has continually repressed the Cuban people for 50 years.
And by the way, everyone is not equal in Cuba. if you wish to dissent, you are automatically treated like dirt. Having the right to speak freely is something you and I probably take for granted, but tit something Cubans are unable to do. And the funny thing is that even with the "embargo",American products STILL make it to Cuba, as well as food and medicine.

In our system in the US, the people have no say or control over anything, murderers can be sentenced on death row & appeal their case which can go on for years at the tax payers expense.

Wrong ! The US was not the most powerful nation then, the Soviet Union was, that's why JFK wanted to keep the peace by teaming up with the communists to remove the missiles from Cuba in return that the US doesn't invade Cuba. The reason Russia sent the missiles to Cuba was because the US had missiles in Turkey aimed at Russia & that made them very nervous, so they gave us a taste of our own medicine.

But I strongly condemn force labor and a country ruled by a Dictator

After the Revolution, Castro should have allowed the people to democratically elected their own House of Representatives and President. Look at the Communist party led countries of Cypress, Moldova, and Nepal with Parlaments

Please people... let us support a Communism that is Democratic and has no Dictators

I agree, Castro should have allowed for elections. In some cases, socialists have some to power democratically. Yet, Marxist-Leninism is incompatible with democracy. PERIOD. Lenin wanted state socialism brought about by an all powerful vanguard party, as is the case in Cuba and at one point China. So far, leaders in latin america trying to achieve socialism through democracy are slowly eroding democratic institutions (Chavez, Correa, Ortega, Zelaya).

I think you're the one in denial Mwaterfall,

Face it, for all its misgivings, Capitalism is the superior system. It lifts more people out of poverty than Communism ever did, and it can be tamed by social programs.

Communism's legacy is one of a population in poverty (kindove ironic, dont'cha think),political prisoners, repression of dissent, one party rule, and the suppression of basic freedoms.
Is that what's in the "best interests of the whole?"

And there is also changing from within; there is Reformation instead of Revolution, changing from the outside by force

To reform the system, it takes patience, thinking, and work; it takes freedom of speech, love, and tolerance. On the other hand, Revolution is when you have lost patience, you see no hope of change, and have resorted to the use of force in order to make that change

I would think the most effective tool is not the sword, but spreading truth, educating others.

No its not you idiot because only those with the necessary amount of currency have access to whatever goods. In a free market no one has an equal amount of money and therefore no one has an equal amount of access, so there's a gap between poor and rich.

Mr. Castro is the best leader in the world. He loves his people and gives them respect, food, and education. The US is the one that killed off Cuba with its blockades and murderous actions thus blocking off Havana and the rest of the island from funds. Mr. Castro wants peace and love. Mr. Chavez wants the same. The US always started wars. Look at Iraq, Vietnam, Grenada, etc. They also started the only nuclear war....Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They were almost ready to assasinate the Cubans too.

The truth is that they made a attack on Cuba with a level of soldiers above the green berte and got wiped out for doing it.

Hmmm and explain to me what did Castro do for us?
Of course he gave us education, but I can tell you It wasn't very good. Why did Castro Kick his own people out in the 80s? Why don't they have medicine in cuba?You don't know shit You can only see lies when the truth is so obvious. Oh and also how come when Castro was going to die all his people started dancing in the streets? America has it bad rulers but guess what every 4 or 8 years they change don't blame the country, blame the administration
