They aided in the possibility of achieving more land thus unifying us once again.

Communism is a form of government that tries to create equality between all of its people. It sounds like a glorious idea, but sadly, humans twist this form of government into something that benefits them and the rest are left in poor conditions. This is the story of Cuba. An uprising occurred and brought the clean cut idea of communism to power, but the leader, Fidel Castro, took his power harshly and did some irrational things. This led to an even more corrupt government of Cuba. Corruption is corruption, but the Castro led country sadly sank into bad relationships with the United States, which hurt them tremendously. An alliance with the Soviet Union was a sturdy step in the direction of deepening the disagreements between Cuba and the United States. Although certain changes were established that helped the Cuban people, such as more readily available, free health care and a new education system, the country is isolated and the people are living in bad conditions. The overall effect that communism has had on the country has not beneficial to the Cuban people.
