The underlying cause for most of these revolutions in Latin America is, to my mind, more rooted in the want of economic and national independence. When most of these lands are reaped for their benefits by overseas investors and business conglomerates while the country itself sees little to none of said benefits, the want for change becomes rampant amongst the exploited who work hard and receive nothing.

In the end, Cuba was able to seize its own destiny for better or for worse. What remains to be seen is whether or not Cuba will continue this revolutionary path and whether or not other Latin American nations can find it within themselves to follow.

A statue of Jose Marti stands tall in Havana, seemingly larger than life pointing the way towards the future.
