Cuba BEFORE THE REVOLUTION
Cuba is in my personal opinion one of the great dilemmas of thepresent dilemma because it isdifficult to imagine a dictatorshipwith strong support of its population, so it is difficult to imagine how a country like Cuba who has years of economic blockademay beone of countries with the highest human developmentindex according to UN sources oficiles. I endorse the conflict in a dictatorship and recognize their greatachievements in education, health and quality of life, and secondly I can not help condemning the dictatorial regimes that concentrate power in one man or oneparty, the dictatorships do not bring fond memories to anyone, except remember the bloody dictatorships in Latin America such as Chile and Argentina, just as a sign of many more.
