Progressive Cuba Embarrasses the Capitalist West


No matter what version of liberal democracy that exists within the capitalist countries, it is generally agreed (even by bourgeois academics) that as a system, it is notoriously unrepresentative of the masses of people that are forced to exist within its exploitative grasp. Liberal democracy exists to keep the capitalist system in place, and the bourgeois class permanently in power.  Every four or five years the masses are given the fabricated ‘choice’ of deciding who will ‘administer’ the oppressive capitalist system they exist within.  Of course, the capitalists package this ‘wage-slavery’ as the apex of ‘freedom’, and assume in that flawed judgement, that liberal democracy (as the product of capitalist greed), is superior than existing in a non-capitalist society that has freed itself from the greed and corruption of the bourgeoisie.  Within a capitalist society, the masses are ‘free’ to be exploited by the bourgeoisie, whereas in a Socialist society (such as Cuba), the masses, having taken power by over-throwing the capitalists, are entirely and truly ‘free’ to pursue the path of ‘real’ human freedom. Freedom in this context, that is the context of Marxian ‘Scientific Socialism’, involves a progressive society that has over-thrown and dislodged the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie class.  Such an achievement is an end to the routine functioning of exploitative capitalism, and the implementation of a Socialist system dictated by ‘science’, which is designed to positively move forward the entirety of society irrespective of social class.  Just as capitalism is premised entirely upon greed and indifference to the suffering of humanity, Socialism is the abolition of the routine ‘greed’ that fuels the capitalist system at source.  When capitalism recedes into the past, so does the bourgeois class. Any form of attempting to ‘turn back’ this progression, and re-set society to an earlier, and evolutionary ‘backward’ capitalist society (such as happened in modern Russia), is interpreted as ‘reactionary’ and ‘counter-revolutionary’.  Fidel Castro – together with around 80 other brave individuals – landed in an old boat (that was falling apart), on the coast of Cuba in on December 2nd, 1956 – and despite terrible causalities, suffering and disease, managed to fight his way in-land, and initiate a Marxist revolution, successfully over-throwing the US-backed rightwing government of the hated Batista regime.  This act of Revolution abolished US hegemony on the island, eradicated capitalism and set in motion one of the most progressive Socialist regimes the world has ever known.  The Cuban Revolution has survived a continuous US policy of oppression, terrorism, embargo and attack, and even survived the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union.  Barak Obama has probably been one of the worst Presidents the US has ever known.  Despite being of African-American origin, he has personally backed the re-Nazification of the Ukraine (and other Eastern European countries), which has seen (amongst many other atrocities) the destroying of Soviet War Memorials, and their replacement with statues of Adolf Hitler.  In 2015, Obama voted ‘against’ a UN Resolution condemning the ‘glorification’ of Nazism and neo-Nazism at a time when ‘White’ US police officers were operating a vendetta against unarmed Black men, murdering record numbers (often on camera), to level seldom seen in ‘racist’ US history.  To see this condoning of ‘racism’ by a US ‘Black’ President is truly appalling, and says something about the duplicity and corruption that is the US capitalist system.  This rather illogical system has seen Obama condemn Communist Cuba over assumed (and ‘imagined’) ‘Human Rights’ violation – at a time when the US runs a torture camp on Cuba!  Not only this, but the US was revealed by ‘wikileaks’ to have fabricated (together with the BBC) the 1989 ‘Tiananmen Incident’ in China, in a failed attempt to bring down that other ‘Communist’ regime.  The capitalist UK is no better – with the United Nations (UN) finding that country ‘Guilty of Crimes Against Humanity’ in 2016, for the deaths of between 10,000 and 80,000 disabled people since the Tory and LibDem government’s implementation of wide-spread welfare and medical cuts since 2010.  Communist Cuba has done none of these things because it exists ‘outside’ of the capitalist system, and is not limited to the hypocrisy of its exploitative nature.  Fidel Castro, as an act of will, took matters into his own hands and took-on, and eventually over-threw the US capitalist presence in his country – Cuba.  Cuba is today one of the most progressive and advanced countries on the planet, with its people being the freest and most advanced in education, employment and medical care.  Long Live the Cuban Revolution!
