Castro And Freedom-Killing Marxism
On November 26, 2016 Fidel Castro peacefully died in Cuba. Castro brought his own brand of Marxism to Cuba after overthrowing military dictator Fulgencio Batista in January of 1959. During Castro’s reign of Marxist terror that lasted until he died, he presided over thousands of executions of his political opponents, thousands of gays and other “deviants” were sent to what can be characterized as concentration camps while political dissidents by the thousands were sent to prisons of hell. Under Castro, religion was brutally suppressed.
In spite of the fact that the majority of Cuban people lived in poverty, Castro enjoyed a luxurious lifestyle. He had a private island, Cayo Piedra, which was dubbed “The Garden of Eden” and was served by his luxury yacht, the Aquarama II. Castro made a huge personal fortune offering safe haven to drug traffickers, bedded dozens of women over the decades, and had a number of mistresses. He was a prime example of how in Marxist societies, the political elite at the top live in the lap of luxury while the masses of people that they rule over live in a state of abject poverty with food shortages/rationing, lack of availability of affordable goods and services, and severe political repression that crushes the individual freedoms of men. There is no doubt that Marxist societies should be strongly opposed by any freedom-loving men. Marxism exists under many names such as communism, socialism, liberal progressivism, and others, but Marxism always produces the same social hierarchy which is a priveleged elite at the top ruling over the brutal political and economic repression of the majority of men where men’s human rights are routinely violated.
