Saxon Posted November 26, 2016 Share Posted November 26, 2016 I am surprised nobody made a thread about this. So, Castro was in power for 5 decades, after he usurped a corrupt criminal dictator in a guerilla war. He eventually passed power onto his brother Raul, which I think was nepotistic. He massively improved Cuba's healthcare, decreasing its infant mortality to levels comparable with advanced first world countries. ...but he also ruled as a dictator and stationed nuclear missiles in his country, something one might perceive to be contrary to communist values which place the good of average people first; how is the prospect of nuclear apocalypse in the interest of the average people communists purport to serve? So, it's really the end of an era; what do you guys think? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
