The Destructive Mentality of the Castros

Monday, May 25, 2015
This weekend, Cuban artist Tania Bruguera organized a reading of the book, The Origins of Totalitarianism by Hannah Arendt, in her home.

She planned the book reading as part of the events surrounding the Havana Arts Biennial.

In order to prevent this simple reading -- and other similar artistic events -- the Castro regime has ordered a construction team to gratuitously jackhammer the street outside her home.

When the reading began, so did the jack-hammering.

As the images below show, the street was completely torn open -- simply to prevent the reading of a book.

Yet, some Members of Congress and lobbyists argue that investing in Castro's monopolies will foster development and help the Cuban people.

It defies logic to believe that investing in a regime with such a destructive mentality -- and willing to pay any price to silence voices -- can benefit the Cuban people.

To the contrary, doing so would be paying Castro's price to silence those voices.
