What are the blessings of socialism? Secret police, torture, concentration camps, starvation, and a host of other, wonderful features. Such is the state of life in Cuba, where the populace has been oppressed by a tyrannical overlord, who of course wielded all those blessings of socialism against his subjects, since the early Cold War.
And what are the horrors of capitalism to which the Cubans are fleeing? Here, you generally have to pay for medical care, for basic necessities, and for housing. But, because you pay, everything is available in abundance. Supermarkets are full of food of every sort imaginable, our healthcare is the best in the world, and almost any apartment, house, or hotel in America is leagues better than whatever is available in Cuba. Yet, despite that abundance, it’s described as immoral and evil by the commies because it must be paid for.
So, what would you choose- the blessings of socialism or the horrors of capitalism? I think the answer should be obvious…
