It has just come to my attention that Fidel Castro was 27 when he headed his first attempted revolution against Batista. More importantly, Castro pursued legal means to oust the corrupt Batista before turning to a violent overthrow. It was six more years until he rose to power.

Mayhaps I am still able to do useful things at this age.

jesus also knows that communism only works on paper, and that humans are greedy, power-hungry bastards that never allow a good system to survive without knocking a few individuals off the chain of command.
