Chilling Photos Show How Communism Crippled Cuba
In the modern day, more Americans have a positive reaction to the word “socialism” than ever before in the country’s history. Considering that a growing number of the population has no living memory of the Cold War, this isn’t terribly surprising.
The brutal story of communism has been allowed to be forgotten, or in some cases re-written in American education. While Democrats and Republicans alike once didn’t hesitate for one second to denounce the evils of the Soviet Union or Castro’s Cuba, millennials in particular aren’t quite so sure. There’s a gray area in the conversation now — one that didn’t exist when the USSR was an existential threat to world peace.
This is what makes the photos shown in the video below so shocking — at least for people born after the fall of communism in eastern Europe. While the flagship of communism no longer exists, its proxy states still do. And believe us when we say that they do not persist because they are prosperous. Rather, they continue on because the political elites that control them understand that they have no other choice.
Here’s Carl Benjamin, known online as Sargon of Akkad, with photos of communist Cuba that you simply must show to your younger friends and relatives. History is being erased before our very eyes, and people are starving to death because of it.
