Just because a person is covered in skin doesn't make them human. Similarly, just because a person has a brain housed in their skull doesn't mean they are capable or even inclined to use it. Every day, beings who populate this earth prove they do not possess the intelligence to qualify as human beings.
My point? Fidel Castro was a totalitarian dictator. No matter how deep you dig, learn the facts about other dictators, whether Communist or otherwise, you will find no history of a totalitarian dictator being a humanitarian. The very definition is the elimination of private property, all goods owned in common and a single authoritarian government controlling all means of production. A dictator is the sole authority, with all resources going to the wealth of his state. Ultimately, to him self. It might be promised that the wealth of the state will be shared by all the population but it has NEVER been so. The only wealth in Cuba is for the privileged and elite. The majority of the country, the common man is destitute, with no opportunity to improve their situation.
Castro, like Stalin and Lenin left their people impoverished, imprisoned, brutalized and terrorized. He and other dictators before him were responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths, for torture and extreme human rights abuses. These type of powerful people may appear to be human. I quoted in one of my novels,...sometimes the evil and depravity of humans is upholstered in the most normal looking skin. I believe this. I would say that people who profit and feed off of the suffering of their fellow human beings are just animals. That is an insult to animals because the huge majority of animals only kill for survival and from instinct. Animals possess no conscious.
When one person dies, either at your hand or by your order, you are a murderer. When thousands die due to your actions, you are a mass murder. The free people of America have no clue what it would be like to live under such oppression. I pray that I will never see what oozes underneath the shell of such sub humans.
There should be no grief, no tears, no glorification or condoning of this man. Any time a ruthless dictator in this world passes away, it should be a time of celebration. There are others still surviving on our earth and there should never be any pretense of such a person being a fellow human being.
