offering a free concert to the Cuban people. way to go, Mick Jagger.
Well if you look at some of the photos you can see me at the back . I was standing on top of one of the huge robbish bins holding onto. Tree branch. Towards the end I realised that the " branch " was a twig , and promptly fell off !Was with a tiny T, we didn't know each other then.
My mother threatened me with all sorts and wouldn't talk to me for about three months --- 'how dare you take my Granddaughter into such a degenerate crowd!' etc etc etc
Cubans can't afford (at American prices) a lot of things they get for free ... health care, education, groceries, children's toys, weapons ... it's almost as if their lives are organized around solidarity and not money.Why was it free? The Cubans can't afford tickets?
Cuba trains more doctors than most countries. When there is a crisis in S America it is Cuban Doctors that are on the scene first.Cubans can't afford (at American prices) a lot of things they get for free ... health care, education, groceries, children's toys, weapons ... it's almost as if their lives are organized around solidarity and not money.
But it has lost the backing of the USSR and so has to open up to the World - poor thingsCuba trains more doctors than most countries. When there is a crisis in S America it is Cuban Doctors that are on the scene first.
A poor US citizen is better going to Cuba than remaining in the US to die. Health care in the US bankrupts mor middle class people than anything else.
Cuba as you say, does not have a capitalist education system , it has a socialist one .

Marx, Engels, Lenin, and Castro were all from the university-educated upper class. Communism was always a movement for spoiled, sheltered guillotine-fodder aristocrats to take over democratic movements. which they feared would destroy their toxic class if left alone.
These spoiled entitled brats are brought up with a Born to Rule attitude, which explains why they become dictators. Their parents never told them "no"; that's why, even before they get into power, they refuse to listen to any criticism. They are sheltered and ignorant about human nature, which is why opportunists like Stalin can easily take over their gullible and unrealistic idealism.
Madero, who in 1910 started the bloodbath-to-nowhere that was the Mexican revolution, gave a preview of all Leftist revolutions. The Twentieth Century political nightmare was all about aristocrats extending their medieval power. And that is still happening.

Whatever you've been told is what the hereditary chiefs' histwhoreans have been paid to tell you. You have a desperate need to hold onto your lazily and passively received wisdom tightly and not let any independent mind take it away from you.
But Americans beat the Ewe Qae in two wars simply because our generals and admirals were taken from the vast majority instead of from less than 1%, which is another interpretation the privileged snobs won't allow you to hear. The only valid revolution will be abolishing every hereditary privilege, starting with living off an allowance with paid-up tuition at the University. Until then, we can never trust a book written by someone who was educated at that obsolete class-biased institution.
