While I can respect your views on capitalism and such, you make too broad of a statement without fact, and assert that people of Cuba do not complain. This cannot be anything close to a true statement whatsoever. Many exiles from Cuba have railed against the Castro Government, as with many other dictatorship regimes. The bottom line is that seemingly no form of government or leadership will suit anybody at any time. Dissention will be a constant, no matter what form of organization is set up to run a state or country. Dictatorship, communism, and anarchy have proven to have as much corrupting power as any, including the republic we have in the U.S.

It is obvious that greed and over-stepping sound judgement is inherent in a capitalism-based society, but an unrealistic painting of a pretty picture, asserting that other forms of government are perfect in their concept is not based on reality.
