Recently, I've taken a trip outside of North America to Cuba. A nation that receives some really bad vibes among the American capitalists, even today. While visiting Cuba we stayed at a 5 star resort which I have to say was one of the most beautiful resorts I have ever seen. The people work hard for what they have. They live in a socialist society there where everyone contributes back to the government which is suppose to equally disperse among the nation. People have literally nothing there for the most part. It intriqued me while driving from the airport to the resort watching people in the local villages so when I arrived at the resort I walked right back off of it and walked for 6 miles and I quickly realized that this simplistic "savage" life - as one British snob blond said, was actually a life that people appeared to be happy with. Life seemed very simple but pleasant among the children, youth, and adults. People obviously strive for more and there is more in a nation where the mega corporate empire above them has put down the movements of Cuba as a movement of the enemy. While I don't agree with the socialist movement in the way it was designed in Cuba, I can agree that the hungry mothers, with little or no processions, living in grass shacks with 6 kids appear less stressed than the imperialists soccer mom with 1 kid stressing over those SUV and $1 million dollar suburb payments. We need to reach a balance in North America where the chicken tastes great, the cellphones work well, and people live a little more simpler than we have been trying to do since WWII. Make a year of military school mandatory for all children, shut down the local grocery store for a day in a normal week, provide people with access to the land like we once had, stop encouraging everyone to live in NYC, and just maybe people will realize what they already have and appreciate it a little more and stop stressing over wanting more, more, more.
