This is why these young upstart wannabe socialist-abolitionists make me crazy. When I was younger I was enamored of Cuba and their revolution, and specifically one of the leaders of their revolution Che Guevara. He is actually the figure who I would say radicalized me, and I read many books on him. Anyway, several years ago I got my dream come true and snuck into Cuba â€“ via Cancun â€“ and Wow. Letâ€™s just say it was not an idyllic socialist mecca where everyone is equal. Most Americans would not last a month there. On top of the oppressive poverty and heavy police presence, here is what I remember most: you couldnâ€™t flush your toilet paper down the toilet â€“ you had to throw it in a trashcan. This was throughout the city, even in one of the nicest hotels — there is no infrastructure! We ate at a friendâ€™s house, and he shared his RATIONED food of coffee, rice, and beans. He was also trying to get the hell out, and is finally now in Dallas. Anyway, the point I wanted to bring this to is with these young socialists and abolitionists. Cuba is what happens when you donâ€™t have a plan. They tore all that shit up in 1959, got rid of everyone rich, and then what? They put a doctor (Che) in the position of Finance Minister and the National Bank. WTF. So letâ€™s say we could wave this magic wand and we all here voted for 50% tax on everyone. Then what? How am I paying my bills. What if I still want my doctor Iâ€™ve had for 30 years? Letâ€™s say we abolished police and prisons tomorrow. Whoâ€™s catching the rapist/murderer? And where are we keeping them â€“ your house? There are steps to this thing and a plan has to be in place, but thatâ€™s not sexy, and thatâ€™s not fast enough for this 24/7 news cycle world. Meanwhile, I stay plugging along with little victories here and there in my work. That was a long email â€“ thank you for indulging me! Keep up the good work â€“ you all are a bright spot in my day!
