Fidel Castro died last week. The irrationality on both sides of the political debate ramped up as usual.
This is not a complicated issue. Was Fidel Castro a good guy, a bad guy, or a so-so guy? The answer depends on how you think.
If a hypothetical man captures, tortures, and murders several innocent people, and then turns around gives $10 million to charity, is he a good guy, bad guy, or so-so guy?
In my opinion, he’s a bad guy. I would admit the $10 million he gave to charity was a very good thing, but he’s still a bad guy.
