If you ask most people what Cuba is famous for, they might say two things: rum and cigars. But if you ask the Cuban left-wingers what Cuba is known for, they usually say something totally different: medical care and education.

Despite government oppression and poverty, el lider maximo and his brothers and sisters made endless speeches, but the Cuban medical and educational system is still considered to be a valid reason for the 1959 Cuban revolution.

It is a good medical system on the island. This is the case with a wealth of skilled doctors. Cuba can even withstand the disease of exporting medical personnel – the international unity of the world and the affected areas. Western capitalist countries do not start with their opponents.

It is estimated that approximately 50,000 health workers trained in Cuba are distributed in 66 countries, many of whom are stationed in the poorest corners of the world. In 2010, after the major earthquake in Haiti, Cuba provided the largest number of medical personnel. Similarly, after the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan’s Kashmir region, more Cuban doctors came to help with relief work than Pakistani doctors. Who says that socialist internationalism perished in 1989?

Therefore, today, in the current Ebola crisis, when wealthy capitalist countries arrogantly criticized issues such as anti-Ebola border security, socialist Cuba once again reached out and sent 461 medical personnel to fly. To the affected West Africa – more than any other country in the first world.

Even the United States Secretary of State John Kerry stated that Cuba’s contribution to the fight against the Ebola epidemic is “impressive.The United States has been working hard to overthrow the Castro family for decades.

This hobby for medical internationalism can be traced back to the greatest symbol of the revolution – Ernesto “Che” Guevara. He is a doctor and he envisions a world in which doctors will use “his expertise to serve the revolution and the people.”

However, like Guevara’s socialism, Cuba’s brothers’ medical altruism also has a dark side. Guevara may have a real sense of intimacy with the poor, but he is also a fanatic who has put homosexuals and other “devotees” into labor camps. He wanted to “provide justice for the oppressed,” but he wanted to achieve this goal by launching the first nuclear strike against New York or Washington. The Cuban government is still led by some of Gevala’s contemporaries. It is an illustration of the similar contradiction between idealism and barbaric coercion.

However, like Guevara’s socialism, Cuba’s brothers’ medical altruism also has a dark side. Guevara may have a real sense of intimacy with the poor, but he is also a fanatic who has put homosexuals and other “devotees” into labor camps. He wanted to use “political will” to express his euphemism, because there is ample evidence that Cuba’s medical diplomacy is far from being voluntary for those who are sent abroad to perform international tasks. Just like those who refuse to participate in “voluntary” pro-government rally, they occasionally meet in the streets of Havana to bring about the illusion of democracy in one-party countries. Those doctors who choose not to cooperate with the Leninist Center will be severely challenged. punishment. Just as Madrid’s Cuban doctor Antonio Guedes said on the same German website, “Any uncooperative person may lose his job, or at least lose his job, or his son will not be able to enter college.”

When I was in Cuba in 2011, he told me about the ridicule of Yanelis Ochoa, a student at the University of San Diego’s medical school in Cuba. Turning to the future, Ani Nilis said that when she eventually graduated, she “may have to work in Venezuela or Brazil for a while”. “What about your boyfriend?” I asked. Don’t you plan to get married soon? “James,” she answered seriously. “You don’t understand how these things work.” If they say I’m going, I’ll go. It’s that simple
