It would be really good if the Cuban Revolution were to finally admit
that it has a lot of political opposition, peaceful and civil, from
within and without the island. Because from the beginning, "The
Revolution" refused to admit that it was having "political problems"
within its own borders. It's more confused and wastes more time
discovering the lie if it presents the campaign against dissidence as if
The State has "Patriotic Urgency" or "The Threat to Sovereignty" and
"National Socialism (Communism ) is the most progressive alternative"
and that those who oppose a political party and its dictator are
"mercenaries" with neither will nor heart".
But all that is false and honesty can still be useful, not for
"humanity" but rather for each human being, small and infinite, with
rights and with worth. If having faith, hope, and love of life didn't
make sense, if it were preferable to keep quiet, to look the other way,
to forget to be the protagonist of your own life, to make your dreams
real. Why Christ, the God in which I believe, is it taken so seriously
For a powerful reason was he abandoned on the cross to be tortured until
death, being killed for the maladies that we're capable of and that only
He can pardon. Must we give up that this world be a place to inhabit in
well-being and security? Do they have to keep governing the barbarians
while we take refuge in religion but are not capable of acting with
faith in life?
So many deaths in the Stalinist collectivization, such a genocidal
Marxist doctrine in order to justify the class struggle. Who can be
leftist nowadays without admitting that they are complicit in or guilty
of, genocide. It isn't even worth recommending to the stupid of the
world who believe in the kindness of socialism to come to my country to
see the outcome because recently I've discovered that there are people
who need to be submissive, servile, managed, rationed, justified in
their envy in staying on the margins of their wishes, anything God only
knows, and for this reason they stay as Marxists in the world.
No-one believes anymore in the story of socialist justice because Wilman
Villar and Zapata Tamayo were very humble men who never got respect for
their rights when they were slowly killed. The Left isn't humane, it's
fascist. Fascism is the extreme left and Communism is fascist. There was
a Hitler because there existed a Lenin and a Stalin. This is the real
cause of the second World War, the opportunistic German disciple of
Cominterm ( Communist International ) ambition and the Soviet
extermination camps with the novelty of nationalism but don't forget
that National Socialism is another form of socialism, no less bloody
than communism. It is the worst swindle and those that hold it up high
like a flag in the world or are very frustrated and are disguised serial
killers, or the poor; they are idiots and idiots cannot guide the
destinies of millions of people.
