Latin American Hagrid fights the Batista fashionista and his oversized hats. From foot fungus to gorilla warfare, and a communist uprising, the Cuban Revolution brought small Caribbean island to become a global threat of nuclear war. Great figures emerged from rural environments to become people capable of ending the world. Revolutions occur due to a significant imbalance between those with power and those without it. Those with unrestricted ability will manipulate it however they please, because those who lack ability cannot limit its growth, and so it eventually grows until the imbalance becomes so severe that people sacrifice everything because they have nothing left to sacrifice besides their own skin and bone. A pattern that I noticed with revolutions was the struggle for power. The opposing government was corrupted, which resulted in a revolt, which resulted in the creation of another corrupt government. It’s a perpetual cycle that produces death and desecration and provides only a brief moment when the world is at peace until the inevitable cycle rekindles its flame.
