Progressives, Socialists and Communists love to tout the "Paradise" that will be created if we all just conform our lives to the Marxist concepts of Big Government and Small Individual Freedoms. A Right to Health Care, a Home, a Job and Pure "Democracy" are the "perks" that are constantly thrown in our face as some of the examples they say will make all of our lives "Equal", "Just" and a Venerable Utopia.
Well if your idea of "paradise" is sharing a room with 11 people you aren't related to, eating nothing but beans and rice, having to read by candle light and going days at at a time without running water all the while getting a "free" education then the Progressives are right.
According to an article in the Communist Party USA News, People's World, an American Medical Student, Chasiti I. Falls, describes the Communist Paradise she lives in during her stay in Cuba as she takes advantage of Castro's "Free" Medical School:
"At this stage of my educational career, I am living in a dorm on hospital grounds in Central Havana where I share a room with 11 Latin American students. I rotate through several hospitals depending on their specialty. We eat beans and rice, and complete patient evolutions daily. At times I study by candlelight and go days without running water."
Wow... where do I sign up?
According to an article written in 2007 featuring Miss Falls, these conditions reflect the lives of Cuban Citizens:
"Living as a student in a dorm room with 17 roommates, we are served rice and beans in the cafeteria every day. The U.S. embargo does not exempt me from experiencing life the same as a Cuban citizen…"
Universal Health Care, Free Room and Board, Free Food AND a Free Education...
Why does it always sound like a good idea but in reality... it sucks?
Don't think so?
Just ask Miss Falls, or one of her 11 roommates, while they digest their bean feast and sit around the candle studying at night taking turns fetching water from the well.
With a Communist Paradise like this...
Who Needs..... Hell....?
