With age comes wisdom...

Posted on: Friday, September 10, 2010

Fidel Castro has averred that he had made mistakes and that the socio-polito-economic system (i.e. Communism) that Cuba has espoused for a half century is flawed. It's a great pity he had not realized that at the time of the missile crisis, which nearly destroyed the world to further that disastrous ideology. How close the human race came to its self-destruction in the battle of freedom against dogma!

Comrade Castro also vituperated Ahmadinejad for the latter's anti-Semitism and invited him to try to perceive things from the Israelis' point of view.

Kudos to him for having the courage to abjure his most hallowed precepts upon reflection and realization they were wrong. Very, very few people are gallant enough to do the same, let alone publicly. Castro, just like my hero, Dr. Sharon, deserves utmost respect for this act of sagacity and bravery.

Here's hoping that more people - both in positions of power and the ordinary "plebs" - take to introspection and reevaluation of their "truths," and, hopefully, realize that doctrine - particularly the bellicose types - is a waste of time and a waste of life.
