gracias' amigo.

thanks, im glad someone agrees. altho i dont agree with everything he did, he is a poster child for revolution. i have a dream of laying the foundations for change, but i need suporters.
Just out of curiousity; what exactly do you disagree with Che on?
he once said that hatred should be a force used for the revolution. i agree with this partly. call me a hippie, but i believe it should be the love of ones country, and not the hate of ones enemy. hatred blinds.
I get what you're saying. I'm gonna have to think about where I stand on that one.
che's hatred only came from his love.

he loved humans, and he had to watch them suffer.
he got angry at the ones who oppressed their own kind.
so angry - that he hated oppression.
every part of it.

that hatred, which rooted in and grew from his love, should (in my opinion) be a force used for revolution.


true, but we still have to be carefull on how we use hatred and revenge.

besides, what can you build out of bloodshed only? fight evil with evil, and the end result would be evil. im not saying violence is bad tho, only violence by itself.
