We will get back to that.
Now, how about a culture that gives some freedom to its own people but deliberately destroys liberty, peace, and prosperity in other countries?
How do we compare that to a country that has never had the opportunity to provide freedom (or not) because there was always a foreign power making that impossible?
In a simplistic way, we would simply condemn the country that has never had any opportunity and ignore the fact that the oppression is caused by the “freer” country.
But that would be like me saying that I am better at providing a home for my family than you, right after I burn your home to the ground.
There are metrics for all of those criteria, you can go look them up if you're interested.
Excellent. Please provide a link. Thanks.
The gulagist culture of Cuba is the reason anyone would have to do that in the first place.
No, the embargo on US auto parts is due to the Helms-Burton law, which is a US law.
The fact that Cubans tolerate that shit at all should disqualify them from mass immigrating to anywhere.
People from Cuba have tolerated US meddling for some time, that is true. But that would imply they are culturally superior and therefore more deserving of migration.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in...
