Images of the Day: Cuban balconies after 63 years, 8 months, and 18 days of socialism

The original beauty and elegance of these ruins still shine through the catastrophic neglect, providing a heart-wrenching glimpse of what Cuba used to be. This DID NOT have to happen, but it did, thanks to leftist ideology.

  1. When I see the impressive archeological remains of ancient civilizations such as Machu Picchu in Peru, Chichen Itza in Mexico, the Parthenon in Greece, Stonehenge in England, and the Great Pyramids of Egypt to name just a few, I am left to ponder about the people who built these great structures. I try to envision how they looked, how they lived and most importantly how they thought. I ponder what ideas and principals were in the minds of these people that created such great civilizations. I look around at their modern descendants and ask what happened? How did they fall?

    When i visited Old Havana in the late 90’s the same feeling came over me. It was like looking at the ruins of an ancient civilization and yet people still lived in these ruins. However, in the case of Old Havana we know what happened. It was not an earthquake, a volcanic eruption, a plague, famine, or any other natural disaster. It was just bad ideas. Be careful what you put in your head. It can kill you.
