Both. He was a man.

Even Gandhi had his bad times.

I think Che is revered as a symbol of revolution. Unfortunately, the reality is that he is one of those people who used people’s desire for change.

He promoted violence, and he was a violent sociopath.

He really didn’t care so much about people’s freedom and opportunity, as much as he opportunistically used those desires in the people to foment chaos and violence.

I think the good/evil dichotomy, used as an either/or choice of categories to put a person or idea in, is mostly useless. Literally, I don’t think the approach has much use. I’d second mirza on the referal to the previous thread on the subject.

A girl I knew at the time told me he was better looking than Fidel. I asked, what else? That’s about it.
