The great Cuban apostle José Martí once said that children are the hope for the future. In Cuba, however, the Castro dictatorship has invested more than a half century into the indoctrination of Cuba’s children in an attempt to extinguish any hope or any future for the people of Cuba. The complete control exerted over Cuban children by the regime is nothing short of child abuse. Their goal is simple and clear: Annihilate the children while they are still young and there will be nothing of substance left to threaten the regime when they grow up.
The photograph below shows a group of Cuban school children swearing allegiance to the Castro dictatorship:
If that photo looks eerily familiar, that is because you have probably seen a similar photograph of school children suffering the same abuse:
Finally, the video below (H/T La Sonora Matancera) is a disturbing example of what the Cuban dictatorship has been doing to Cuba’s children for more than five decades now. These kids and young adults are being asked what they want to be when they grow up, and it is astonishing to see how many of them say they want to be prostitutes, pimps, and con artists. But most troubling is the one boy at the :45 second mark who gives a one-word answer to what he would like to be when he grows up: Dictator.
