Not About You

People often project local issues on other countries. Cue the example of Cuba. It’s great that the Socialist dictatorship in Cuba has walked away from putting gay people in concentration camps. But it’s still a dictatorship. It’s still terrible. It’s a softer totalitarianism that it used to be 40-50 years ago. But it’s still a totalitarianism.

People who are saying that legalizing gay marriage makes Cuba better than the US and the democratic countries of Europe should be ashamed of themselves. They are using terrible suffering of Cubans to make some inane partisan jab.

Many things in the world aren’t about you. Deal with it.
