That is completely false.
First, im a citizen and not a resident but thats besides the point.
Second, it is not that Cuba "isent" rich that makes it a shithole. It is that the government is undemocratic, corrupt and repressive that makes it a shithole.
Although a general rule, there is a correlation between corrupt/undemocratic/repressive governments and population wealth but it is the corruption/anti-democracy/repressiveness that ultimately makes them shitholes.
Thing is, Cubans have better universal health care, medicine, and housing (unlike the USA), have more free time to spend with their families and communities, and so on.
Bull shit. I already explained to you how universal healthcare in Cuba is a sham. A health care power does not have to recycle disposable scalpels to the point they lose the edge. Healthcare powerhouses do not have to deal with empty pharmacies, hospitals in this condition:https://panampost.com/belen-marty/2015/ ... ts-to-see/

The evidence does not support your propaganda.
Housing in Cuba? A fucking joke. Do you have an idea what a "solar" is? And no, im not talking about solar power. In cuba, there were are many large colonial mansions left standing that are 100-200+ years old. These large houses oftentimes had very large interior patios, tall ceilings and many rooms (commonly 8-12 but sometimes more) which were relatively large compared to a typical US bedroom. Over the years, these large houses have become "solares" in which many family live in the single house. Usually get get 1-2 bedrooms of the larger house and those 1-2 bedrooms become their "home". As a result, you end up with 10+ families living in a single house! The house offcourse is extremely old and fragile, despite the superb architecture and quality of contruction of colonial times, these houses have not received any meaningful maintenance for many decades and are in awful conditions. They pose a serious risk. Not to mention that because they were never designed to house individual families they often lack bathrooms for all families (so families end up sharing bathrooms or even doing their stuff in buckets that they keep inside their rooms) and electrical wiring is often hanging around because they were added later and were not integrated inside the walls, so obviously these also pose a major risk for people.
Just search "solares en cuba" and rejoice.https://cubanosporelmundo.com/2017/03/3 ... colectivo/
Pay attention in the video above. Every window is protected by metal bars. This is not the behavior of people that are enjoying living with each other, these is the behavior of people that are trying to protect what little they have from being stolen by their very own neightboors. Did you notice the stepper stairs around minute 3:56? it has a fucking chain and a fucking padlock... why? to avoid somebody stealing this old, rusty stair... because some people in cuba will steal anything.
Living in these conditions is not a great achievement of people that are striving to protect our planet from runaway consumerism that should be celebrated. They are merely surviving and are a victim of an oppressive, lying, undemocratic government.
What he is really complaining about is that.... rich people had to be eliminated to make a higher quality of life possible for the masses. As a former rich person, he is not willing to give up any of his wealth or privileges to help the masses.
Who the fuck told you I was a rich person. ROFL keep making shit up. Didn't I tell you that my mother's salary was in the order of $25 USD and she was basically at the "top" except for those that work in the tourism sector?
You are making shit up. This is borderline pathological. I don't know how you get this brainwashed.
Of the two of us, I am the one being consistent. Cuba is a shithole, I am not returning there to live there for as long as the current shitty system persist. Meanwhile you are praising the crap out of that place where you only visit and never actually live. There is a major difference beween visiting alcatraz and seeing how prisoners lived there than actually living there as a prisoner. I dare you to switch places to any person that lives in a cuban solar and do their jobs for what they get paid. I dare you, if only for 1year time. I promess you, whoever you switch places with, will not want to switch places back after 1 year
