Where’s the best place to be a mom?

According to the  Save the Children's State of the World's Mothers 2010 survey, the Caribbean's largest slave plantation is the best place to be a mother and raise a child. Cuba edged out several developing Latin American countries to win this award.

And what mother would not want to raise her child in a place that provides all these freedoms:

  • Freedom from having to think
  • Freedom from having to speak
  • Freedom from any artistic expression
  • Freedom from having to deal with money
  • Freedom from having to decide on steak or chicken because there is no steak or chicken today
  • Freedom from having to get milk for your child after they turn 6
  • Freedom from wearing nice and decent clothes and having shoes that fit
  • Freedom from worrying about fixing that hole in the roof where the water comes in every time it rains because there is nothing to fix it with
  • Freedom from having to buy or sell a car
  • Freedom from owning your own home
  • Freedom from having to take a bunch of different medications, even if you need them, because the State won't give them to you
  • Freedom from turning yourself in for counter-revolutionary acts -- the CDR does it for you
  • Freedom from information that might make you think
  • Freedom from news, books, and literature
  • And the most important freedom of all, freedom from the responsibilities of being free

A wonderful place to be a mom.
