Castro...Good Guy or Bad Guy? Kinda Depends On Your Perspective.
I never really wrote anything immediately after Fidel Castro's death because he was a
genuinely polarizing figure in modern history.
It's always sad when somebody dies. But a lot of people, especially Cuban refugees have been celebrating his death like now all of a sudden things in Cuba are going to change for the better somehow.
That may or may not be true, but if relations actually become normalized between the US and Cuba, there's little doubt in my mind that American corporations, including Trump's corporation, will swarm that country and exploit the shit out of it.
The net result is that in 10 years from now Cuba could end up just like every other Caribbean island. A bunch of all inclusive resorts taking up every mile of shoreline. A depleted, poverty stricken interior. And population living off hotel tips.
Kinda makes you wonder if communism in Cuba isn't such a bad thing. And maybe Castro was really operating in the best interest of his people. Just sayin.
