This blog is mostly about gaming, rugby, kinkshaming, hating both the BBC and the word queer, and taking the piss out of anglophiles, ~masc~ gay guys, vegans, atheists and libertarians. I also reblog a lot of food because food is good. pro-unselfconscious karaoke homosexuality, pro-cider, pro-early 2000s europop. Dealing with my internalised US-centrism one day at a time.
Why can’t communism work? (at least better than capitalism)
“Cuba has a 99.8% literacy rate, an infant death rate lower than some developed countries and an average life expectancy of 77.64. In 2006, Cuba was the only nation in the world which met the WWF’s definition of sustainable development; having an ecological footprint of less than 1.8 hectares per capita and a Human Development Index of over 0.8 for 2007”
Also, Fidel Castro holds the record for the longest ruling non-royal national leader (since 1870) at 52 years.
I’m not a Castro nor a communism supporter but these are facts. How’s that $16.02 trillion national debt (72% of the GDP) working out for you America?
