Fidel Castro

bbWorld leaders are always sociopaths. The job of world leader is not easy to get. The competition to get these jobs is so stiff that only people with pronounced special personality characteristics can obtain them.  The polite term is “political personality.”  Sociopath is a synonym. Psychopath and sociopath are mostly used interchangeably.  Any of these terms would be fine for describing Castro.

When Castro took over in Cuba, he replaced fascist dictator Fulgencio Batista. Under the fascist Batista, the economy went the way fascist economies always go. He was replaced by Castro who offered communism as an alternative. The elite in Cuba all left for the United States and a few other countries. It is hard to say which system was worse. Socialist societies mostly survive poorly. Fascist societies destroy themselves completely.

Under Batista, crime and government merged, just as is the case in the United States today. Organized crime ran Batista’s Cuba just as organized crime runs our system in the United States.

As a killer, Fidel Castro was about average. It is fine to criticize Castro for his crimes against humanity.  Americans take great comfort in shaking fingers at foreign despots. That is fine. They are guilty as charged.

Americans should not be blinded to the United States’ initiated atrocities. It would take many lifetimes for Castro to kill as many people as the United States has in the mideast in the effort to control and monetize their natural resources.

It is a principle of natural law that an action undertaken for an immoral purpose will have a negative outcome. Calling military adventures fights for freedom and other euphemisms doesn’t make them anything other than what they are.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
