Socialist Cuba is VERY similar to what India was before liberalisation: SHORTAGES of everything

This is an extract from a delighful Netflix documentary Cuba and the Cameraman.

A great people, the Cubans, but led by Fidel the Fool into poverty ever since his 1959 take over of Cuba.

Sadly, his predecessor Batista was a classic example of a corrupt crony capitalist so the people were frustrated. But socialism totally destroyed whatever potential was there in Cuba. From one of the richest nations in the world it plunged into one of the poorest in decades.

A short extract below.

Just because there is some garbage on FBI’s website, doesn’t make it true!

A comment re: aliens and UFOs, below, on my Youtube channel:

The operational comment:

Nothing more to say.

Video blog: Why it is not sufficient to fight socialism. We need to fight religion.

After watching the scientology documentary I had to spend a few minutes to comment about the general principles involved – the issue is too important to ignore. In fact, I am convinced that the fight today (and perhaps for the next thousand years) will need to be on two fronts: against socialism (and its political equivalents: communism/fascism) and religion.

We need to become free. Most importantly, we need to liberate our children.

The video below is available here.

As I tweeted the other day, Truth is the goal. Everyone has a right to their view but no false view has a right to “respect”. All religions are false hence despicable.
