Fidel Castro is dead. Sadly, his ideology is not. Since 1959, Cuba was under the cruel rule of Fidel Castro, yet many in the media, entertainment, and our government are sugar-coating Castro’s legacy. Why? Could it be that they are attempting to transform history before our very eyes?
The act of reconstructing history is nothing new. It makes sense that those who wish to control others would use history as a tool. Orwell expressed the notion in his prescient novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, “Who controls the past, controls the future; who controls the present controls the past.” It is important for us to be aware of that when studying history. Presently, we are witnesses to the crafting of a false narrative that is meant to serve as the historic record that future generations will learn history from. It is amazing to watch the process. It is also scary.
Those of us who have lived during the decades of communist aggression in our world, and have followed the news as history unfolded and know about the formation and fall of the Soviet Union, China and Mao’s Cultural Revolution, the Cold War, the Berlin Wall, Castro’s threats to America and John F. Kennedy’s response, are flabbergasted to see the history being rewritten and in some cases erased.
What worries me most is that the young generations are being taught that socialism is good, while capitalism and individualism is bad. They are not taught how capitalism has raised more people from poverty than any other system. They are not being taught that the cost of “free” stuff supposedly from the government is not free. The cost is actually their freedom.
During the Cold War, Margaret Thatcher, British prime minister and fierce supporter of liberty, pointed out a major defect of socialism’s structure. “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
Winston Churchill also recognized the shortfalls of socialism. He said, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
The travelers on the progressive path are happy to block or cover over the parts of their trail that led to the destruction and despair of millions of innocents. The true believers that think the state is the solution and individual freedom is an obstacle to be removed will use any tactic to get to that end. If they can distract or re-educate those who do not agree with this statist approach, they will. If not, then those like Fidel Castro, who believed in Stalin’s more hostile method, which was explained using an omelet analogy, “You have to break eggs to make an omelet,” will step in. Although, via research, it seems, Stalin did not actually use those words, but he did, in fact, “break many eggs” to force his will on millions.
Hopefully, the true history of Fidel Castro and other tyrants will be preserved. The true history that shows that the social justice ends, progressivism promises, have never actually been achieved. The faithful that believe that the progressive pursuit of redistributing wealth to achieve equality is the only way will not stop. The only hope is that those who long to believe that progressivism will lead to “free” stuff for all will study the facts of history and see that this system always leads to the “free” stuff not being free at all. The cost of the promised free stuff is individual freedom. The progressive ploy is a power grab, contrived to control.

America’s leadership within the DNC is largely Communists. Do we really need further proof that Communism through the leadership of the DNC has infiltrated the US government and they now are working very hard to take us down. Think about the big money laundered to the Biden’s from Communist China. Not to mention the corrupt Clintons and Obama leadership and their Communist background.
Communists in action is what Antifa and the other Dem protesters are. Kamela has Communism in her background. Removing our historical statues is part of the Communist plan of removing a country’s history The leadership of the Democrat Party is Communist—Nancy Pelosi’s mentor was Vivian Halinan whose far left lawyer husband defended communists and hosted parties for the CPUSA. America better wake up you’re under assault from within by people who are funded by foreign sources. I refer to it as the Communist DNC as most of the leadership are Communists. I don’t say this lightly. Why I believe this is can be found in the book “You Can Still Trust the Communists (to be Communists).pdf The book can be found for free online by searching the title. The first 20 pages or so are slow reading but after that, I couldn’t put the book down. An update version of this book by David Noebel can be found online.
This book reminded me about Bill Clinton’s desire to visit Russia and Russia allowed him in.
This book states the USSR only allowed those to visit that they believed they could use and then remember, they gave permission for Bill Clinton to visit when he was a Rhodes scholar.
Bernie Sanders was able to visit. People should ask, why were these two men were so infatuated with Russia. Obama also has Communism in his upbringing. Remember Obama and Michelle hung Mao Christmas ornaments on the White House tree and no one made a big deal out it.
These Dems are working to destroy our country with creating chaos (Antifa) as well as attempting to remove history (statues, renaming schools as Feinstein did the other day even taking her own name off of one) & they have already taken over education. The outline for what is happening now is in the book I noted above. My grandparents fled Communism a hundred years ago and now it is here. After the US is taken over, there is nowhere else to go.
Lastly, need to mention the New World Order, open borders policy that many of the elites worldwide endorse. Merkel and Obama allowing the flood of Islamists into the EU wasn’t just an accidental occurrence. It was orchestrated by those in charge. And Biden is doing the same again our our southern border now
The Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, i.e. “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
Winston Churchill, i.e. “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
Castro, lied his way into power after Baptista left only to show the iron fisted truth of his true beliefs, Marxism…By then it was too late, Cuba became a nation of ” sheep “. Look at Cuba today, not a whole lot better methinks… :~(
Now take a real good look at what has infiltrated this nation we call America, WOKEISM, TRANSGENDERISM, CIVIL UNIIONS of man marrying man & woman marrying woman, GAY PRIDE, CRT, The 1619 Project… What is wrong with this picture?
Does anyone miss their President yet?
Bill on the hill… :~)
Hello America, This article identifies how socialism works. This what Obiden wants to do in America. The thing about communism and socialism is after these extreme leftists and Obiden use up all of America’s money it crashes and all of us are slowly destroyed. America lets create a movement together to get rid of the crooked Washington politicians. Thats what President Trump was trying to do. He had to fight any way he could to save us. GOD Bless Ameria and the people for which it stands.
