Cuban protests

A good lesson for young people

I hope our younger generation is paying attention to what is happening in Cuba. This is their historic opportunity to really understand all the potential dangers coming from the Marxist ideology. There is no better illustration for systemic oppression than the one committed daily by the Cuban communist government. This is the unquestionable proof that freedom is one of the essentials we all need, not just food and shelter.

The revolt we are witnessing today is not just because of long years of economic failures or even the embargo, it is happening because people had enough of the state dictatorship that controls every little detail of their life. I hope our younger generation is paying attention to this, at least as much as they do to the college professors they are to listen to.
