"...like so many cold lumps of cosmic ice cream, splatted on the sidewalks of humanity."

Mary Katharine Ham (Hugh Hewitt) on the 47 year-old socialist drama that is Cuba: They Tell Me It's a Nice Idea.

So, conversations with socialists. I have them. A lot.

I have them with that special brand of socialist-- the 20-something post-collegiate angsty intellectual who has the luxury of saying Fidel Castro "has some pretty good ideas" because, for him, it's not a national talking point enforced at the muzzle of a gun and the blindfolded brink of a ditch. That kind of socialist.

[...] Why do I bring it up now? This year marks the 47th anniversary of Castro's drive into Cuba.

[...] Forty-seven years. Forty-seven years of crimes against humanity and the human spirit. Generations lost to a world without freedom and self-determination.

Kudos to Mary for writing this excellent post. I highly recommend it.
If you're so inclined, a donation to the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation is a great way to help everyone remember the victims of this theory.
