I love mankind. It’s the people I can’t stand.
When I posted the Castro-Kennedy assasination connection, all I wanted to do was inform everyone about this latest theory that came up. Nothing else. To me, Castro ordering Kennedy’s assasination (if at all) was a HUGE thing. I mean, here is this tiny nation always on the threshold of perpetual anhilation thanks to a paranoid USA, manage to kill one of its most popular and charismatic leaders and got away with it? Of course need I say, also avoiding some assasination attempts in the bargain.
I grew up listening to Castro’s escapades with poisoned boots and food. I understand Marxism, have a great regard for Karl Marx, have read his theories and think they are great to explain many phenomena that can be seen in today’s world. However, I do think that there are some points which may not translate well onto the real world not because of the theories but because of a basic flaw in human nature: we are not perfect. But that is beside the point. What I am saying is I am not against Castro or his ilk. Actually, I should said, “I’m Bengali” and that should have been enough! (Just kidding!).
As far as America being black and the world white, what can I say? I heard today that Iran was back in the news as a possible target that the world’s most powerful country wants to do away with. I wonder what happened to the ideals that the Emerson, Thoreau, Whitman talked about? Why is this nurturing nation whose very own Statue of Liberty has a plaque with this written on it
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
want to raze every other country on this planet?
Communism had its flaws as does Capitalism but we shouldn’t made the mistake of throwing away the baby with the bathwater. Capitalism’s worked so far. And we are in a mess. Who knows what is ahead of us. If there was a way to combine the good bits of both theories, I am all for it.
