    I did not know that Fidel Castro was a communism dictator in Cuba. communism is a bad way to control countries because it doesn’t care about people in their the town, and how that can affect them.

    I am from a region that is controlled by a very powerful communist country in central Asia, so based on my experiences, I would say it is impossible to build a perfect communist country because of the selfishness of humanity. Just like a baby would cry for more foods and hugs after that baby tested the feeling of foods and hugs; once people in power gain the control of the economy they become greedy crying for more. A person’s desire would never stop at any point when that person can have everything she or he wants. Just like my home country, if a government gains most of the powers, then it will turn into a dictatorship country. The idea of communism is based on the idea of sharing equally, so I think a communist country will never come true because our human nature seeks competition instead of equal sharing.

    We were so scared when Cuba fell into communism under the rule of Castro because they were so close to the United States and it could be a huge problem for the U.S. This is a well written article as well.

    The most ideal society is one that renders politics useless and transcends illusions, such as competition, hate, religion, power, etc. Whats funny is that this is actually possible, even in our current situation. If all humans were to realize that politics are useless and get rid of their attachments and illusions, Earth will be back to its utopic state.

    Communism is one of the most simple yet brilliant ideas humanity has ever had. There has never been a truly communist country. grouping communism with terrorism is like grouping protestantism with fascism.
