The reality of socialism: Fidel Castro lived in constant luxury as his subjects starved


Socialist politicians promise equality and free stuff but deliver impoverishment and tyranny.

Here is a New York Post article about the luxurious life of Cuban President Fidel Castro.

Castro lived a life of absolute luxury. He had dozens of mistresses and kept a dozen private palaces for himself. He even had pet dolphins.

Virtually anyone who offended or threatened Castro was executed. Castro’s victims number in the thousands.

Dissidents were jailed for as little as handing out books on democracy. “Even his closest aides faced execution if it suited [Castro’s] agenda.”

Even Castro’s daughter fled Cuba for her safety.

While his suffering subjects starved on the streets and lived like savages, Castro had access to the finest food and wine.
