Cuba

As recently as the death, the usual imbeciles spouted out the talking points that Castro "instituted universal health care and free education."  It occurs to me the response is: were these great things?  To this, you can expect to hear, "of course!!!"

If they were so great, then why are Cubans forbidden to leave, and put in jail if they criticize the government?

There is no answer to this.  These points are obvious, of course, but we are locked in a long term battle for human decency and basic truth, and it never hurts to continue efforts to refine winning arguments.

The problem, of course, is that most Leftists now refuse to interact in any fashion with people who disagree with them, and not infrequently fly into violent rages at the mere mention of ideational "alterity", to use an academic word.
