Butting in, Andreas, I'd call this innocence and think that it is a great source
of energy for heros. Clever people can win in matters of power but what baout
the mythical zone? :idea:

Indeed innocence is a great source but it can lead to destruction. Personally I would rather live the life that has been given to me than become a martyr so that people can remember me. Che did great justice to his people and that should have been enough. On the other hand, Castro still lives and enjoys...

And the global concerns are still the same. :lol:

I'm not an expert on the subject of Castro. What I know is that demonizing him is a waste of time.

The embargo is cruel to the people of Cuba. That's all about U.S. policy, which is based on prejudice.

Anyone have an opinion on this? Is it a heroic act? Has this been given a political spin?

Yet, maybe it's possible for some of us to live young even when getting aged? Maybe that's also a probability?
