I am often boggled by people who fantasize about living in a socialist country. They talk about socialism, their idea of a perfect utopian society, as if it was a successful model of government. They think of Cuba’s failed system as a “success.”
At a recent Occupy Wall Street rally in New York a former citizen of the Soviet Union confronts two OWS protestors who are advocating socialism and Che Guevara. Watch:
I wonder if this woman, and the millions of liberals who support Che, know that their favorite Communist presided over the Cuban Revolution’s first firing squad and approve the murder of thousands more. Che founded Cuba’s labor camp system, which eventually incarcerate and tortured gays, dissidents, and AIDS victims.
