Resistance is a cultured form of defiance. A few days after the anniversary of the revolution on the island of contradictory landscapes, I am enticed with the notion of resistance, loyalty and culture embedded within the majority of a nation that understands the continuation of revolution.
Continuation means that resistance is not relegated to the past. It is an understanding of history and how excessive greed inspired a nation to rebel against imperialism. Resistance implies adherence to an ideal that does not fade with time or death. It is the ultimate form of loyalty that is not enticed by the pungent sweetness of apologetic treason.
