I admire anyone who fights for what they believe in, especially when they are successful. Not much help, I know, but I don't know anything about him other than that he was a Marxist Revolutionary, and has become quit the fashion plate in the last decade or so. This is more or less a bump so I can learn more.

Admirable of course. He chose to not live a good life to follow his ideals. What else would be more admirable?

Closer to despicable.

I consider his goals admirable, albeit probably unattainable - but it's unacceptable to torture and execute thousands of people in pursuit of those goals. He's no better than Stalin or Pol Pot, or any other mass murderer.

Anyone who bans rock n' roll music is despicable.

Anyone who bans an action regardless of context is despicable. That makes you, >>7 , certainly despicable, and it says nothing positive or negative about Guevara. Let us know the reason he did this for, and then we'll know for him as well.

There was once action and consequence. Action was judged depending on consequence. Then, there was context, and actions were judged on consequence and context. Immoralists claim that neither matters, so from that POV, I wouldn't know what to say of Guevara, but to appreciate what he left behind.

Che understood popular support prbly better than Castro or any of the other "Bearded Ones" (as they called their baseball team). Before Vietnam and the term Hearts and Minds Guevara had it. I always found it more interesting you see his face next to Bob Marley's in alot of South American and African countries as symbols of revolution.

I disagree with him but I respect that he did what he did. I just hate the cult of personality that has sprung up around him.

Dude knocked out his office wall so he could get a better view of the executions.

Despicable to the core.
