    What's theColorless' opinion on Che Guevara? My pacifist friend dislikes him for being a murderer, but flowers and hugs don't start revolutions...

    Guevara mentioned himself, in his diary, that if he and Fidel Castro had more pacifist ways of triggering the revolution, they would have done so. However, circumstances behind Fulgencio Batista's regime apparently gave them no choice than to proceed the way they did.

    About the man himself, I particularly admire his devotion in humanitarian aid, and that, wherever he went. Unsure if it was because of his duty as a physician or simply because he had quite a sense of justice, he was very hardworking and loyal, when came time for it.

    Furthermore, I find it fascinating that, up to this day, details and reasons of his death are still being strongly debated. It is hard to tell if the tales of Castro eliminating his rival are but simple conspiracy theories born from a population that had much faith in Guevara, or if the fact that he was murdered by Bolivian troops and the CIA are, in fact, true.

    On a lighter note, I find him particularly attractive. <3
