Hopefully, he has many productive years left. He's needed to write articles like "The roads leading to disaster." We need the spirit that liberated Cuba from imperial America, police state rule, and mafia bosses who turned the nation into a casino and brothel.

Cubans may want change, but won't tolerate recolonization under puppets serving Washington and US corporate interests. Fidel won't live forever. No one does. Hopefully he's well, vibrant, and will keep expressing important views for years to come.

After leading Cuba for decades, surviving hundreds of US attempts to kill him, a punishing embargo, and numerous other hostile acts, illness forced him to step down. As far as known, it hasn't dulled his spirit or determination to spread vital truths.

His most recent writing showed his intellect remains perceptive, and his knowledge of vital issues is impressive. His honesty and integrity are impeccable. His forthrightness is noteworthy. So is his fear of an inevitable disaster.

Ignore him at our peril. "As far as I am concerned," he said, "I do not harbor the slightest doubt that the United States is about to commit, and lead the world toward, the greatest error in its history."

He believes Iran is ground zero. He thinks nuclear war is possible. It's inevitable eventually, he said. It can be global or one-on-one by one nation on another.

The unthinkable may, in fact, happen. It's vital to know because it's possible. Castro speaks and writes with the wisdom of the ages. He says what he believes forthrightly. He disdains fork-tongued commentaries. He speaks freely and tells it straight.

He and Chavez are exceptions who prove the rule. They're people oriented leaders. They're polar opposite neoliberal/belligerent/corrupt ones infesting America, Europe and Israel.

If all nations had leaders like them, peace would triumph over war, social needs would be prioritized, policies would lift all boats, and government would be of, by and for everyone. Imagine the type world most people want to live in. Leaders favoring it are too important to lose. Many more are needed.
