On New Years I began to think...47 years... 47 years since cuban people ran down streets singing and dancing... 47 years since cuban people showed Imperialism that all of them united could create a force no one ever imagined.
To me that should not be forgotten, that moment, the joy... But it has, it has been forgotten and exchanged for something else, dictatorship. The very thing which was intended to avoid is now set in the very country that was thought, which Ernesto thought, to be an example.
I think enough time has passed, maybe to much. I, personally, think democracy is the best way to rule a country. Having one person rule a country for more then ten years isn't good, his ideas aren't fresh and he forgets how it was like to have the support of the people, he just stays there comfortable with his position... But you have to think about the people you are ruling, are they happy? Do they still like your ideas? Maybe you should present someone new, someone with fresh ideas and show him your support.
That's just me thinking things over fireworks and pineapple icecream... 47 years is a long, long time. And sometimes things change for the best.
