Castro saw a similarity to his goals with the goals of Christ, "Christ multiplied the fish and the loaves to feed the people.

A very interesting perspective on the uniqueness of Cuban socialism and the role of ethics and morality in Marxism-Leninism.

This is a fascinating book discussing the author's understanding of the "ethic of violence" of Fidel Castro. I am not qualified to express an opinion if and how far the book correctly describes the actual behavior of Castro. But the book does present an impressive ethics of violence fitting bloody revolutionary situations, as developed and expressed, at least verbally, by one of the most interesting and relatively successful revolutionary leaders of the 20th century.
In essence, the suggested ethics justifies the use of violence, including extreme forms, if essential for making a revolution succeed, while restraining unessential violence not justified by evil acts which justify retribution. Thus, violence was not condoned against soldiers fighting on the battle field against Castro's troops, but was regarded as fully justified against those torturing revolutionaries, murdering them after they capitulated, and engaging in violent antirevolutionary actions after the victory of Castro.
Comparison such ethics of revolutionary violence with the barbarism of deliberate mass killing by German's National socialist regime, or Stalinist Soviet Russia, or mass killing terrorists, or African tribal ethnic killings, demonstrates the importance of developing a realistic ethics for revolutionaries - fitting, for instance, the Syrian revolution. Trying to apply the norms of international humanitarian law to such situations is inappropriate and cannot work, while the absence of realistically applicable rules abandons the domain to normless behavior. As revolutions are sure to characterize humanity for quite some time, because of transformative historic processes, there is much to learn from this, discussion of Castro's explicit normative thinking, however probably idealized.
Therefore this book deserves attention by all concerned with global norms, who should take into account the realities of revolutionary processes so as to limit violence to what is realistically necessary and morally justified in such extraordinary situations.
