The unelected communist dictatorship of Cuba runs - like North Korea and the Soviet bloc behind the Berlin Wall - a prison state whose citizens are forbidden to leave the country. The communist dictatorship denies free speech, political opposition, and freedom of religion. It has wrecked Cuba's economy, and has killed 70,000 people so far, by executions, camps, and the deaths of refugees (boat people) trying to escape.

Communism has been a failure and it is time for Cuba to abandon it and adopt democracy, free speech, free enterprise and freedom of religion.

Castro destroyed Cuban prosperity

How Castro's revolution failed Cuba:
The black line shows the stagnation of the GDP per capita of Cuba since the Cuban Revolution of 1959.
GDP per capita was (1990 $) 2,067 in 1959, and (1990 $) 1,926 in 1995. That is, Cuba was even poorer in 1995 than it was in 1959.
The blue line shows the growth of the world's average GDP per capita over that time (not even the best countries in the world, just the whole world).
Stats from Angus Maddison.

Cuban Missile Crisis

The brutal, unfree regime of Cuba threatened America and the free world with nuclear weapons in 1962.

Human rights

Human rights groups' reports

If you don't believe my sources, at least take the time to look at the human rights groups' reports:

Writing and activism

Healthcare and education

Even if Cuban healthcare and education was terrific, it would hardly justify crushing Cuban freedom for decades.

The Soviets had a great space program. The Nazis built great roads and automobiles. But few defend those regimes because of those things.

In any case, there is plenty of reason to be sceptical about the claim that Cuba has great healthcare and education.

Michael Moore believes everything Cuba showed him for his propaganda film Sicko in 2007.
Michael Moore believes everything a closed communist dictatorship with no free press says.
This clip on 20/20 adds the basic scepticism that Sicko lacks (and that the Cuban media lacks).

Elian Gonzalez

His mother died in 1999 fleeing to freedom in America. In 2000 the Clinton administration sent him back to Cuba.

2010: Back in Cuba, the brainwashed Elian Gonzalez has become a young communist.
How sad. He has been taught to support the system that killed his mother.

Obama's detente, 2014

Dumbass American President visits communist Cuba, Mar 2016, and tells them they are great.

Castro dies, 2016

Castro, the persecutor of democrats, Christians and gays, lived a long life and died age 90. There is no justice.

There is no hope for Cuba until his revolution dies too.


Cuban exiles in Miami celebrate Castro's death, Nov 2016.
"Cuba Sí! Castro No!"

Leftist Canadian PM Justin Trudeau issued a dreadful fawning statement at the death of the dictator.
This was brilliantly mocked on Twitter under the tag: #TrudeauEulogies

Yes he is dead now.
Now he is dead, will Cuban communism end? Will Cuba ever be free?

Communism continues


If only Fidel's ashes had arrived in Santiago in 1959.

Che Guevara

"we must follow the road of liberation even though it may cost millions of atomic war victims."
- Che Guevara, 1962.

"The trial had taken place at the height of the Cuban [missile] crisis and under the atmosphere of the threat of a third world war. Unquestionably my sympathies lay with Cuba. The rise of the first Socialist State in the western hemisphere, the revolutionary means whereby Fidel Castro had seized power, the rapid improvement in the living standards and conditions of the people within the first few years of a socialist society, Castro and his people's unequivocal opposition to colonialism and their full support for the liberation movements, had made a favourable and lasting impact throughout the world. The ability of a new and small state to defend its interests and its independence, to repulse repeated attempts by the mighty USA to destroy it, not only shows the popularity of Fidel Castro and his government, but demonstrates in no uncertain terms the superiority of socialism over capitalism."
- Communist tosser Nelson Mandela in the original manuscript of his book Long Walk to Freedom (1995).

"So long as there is a single rock in all the world's oceans without socialism, there will be boat people."
- Jean-Francois Revel sums up Cuba (and Vietnam, and North Korea, East Berlin, and all the other socialist hellholes).

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
