The Killing Machine

Here's an interesting, longish article on Che Guevara's bloody life. One thing that stood out that seems relevant to us today was:

The urge to dispossess others of their property and to claim ownership of others’ territory was central to Guevara’s politics of raw power. In his memoirs, the Egyptian leader Gamal Abdel Nasser records that Guevara asked him how many people had left his country because of land reform. When Nasser replied that no one had left, Che countered in anger that the way to measure the depth of change is by the number of people “who feel there is no place for them in the new society.”

How successful have the leftists been in implementing change here?

The one inescapable difference the left faces here is the fact the average person of their opposition is armed.
The left has been very effective at mass murder of unarmed people unable to resist.
We have a choice- we do not have to run.

I'm happy for the Left to feel there is no place for them in the new society and leave the country.

I read to the line "no man is without redeeming qualities.."
yeah, in Che's case, it's the fact he is dead.

Tom said...

Eric, I would be quite happy with that as well.

Raven, In the article, the redeeming quality is Che's honesty -- that is, his honesty about his own bloodthirstiness.

When I get up the stomach for it I will go back and finish it.

Re. his "honesty"-
Every self actualized sadist is honest with themselves. I fail to any redemption in that.

If the Leftist alliance had more patience, had waited a few more generations, maybe even a century, they wouldn't have needed to mobilize their strategize reserve to 50%, in order to dominate and enslave an armed American population. People would have disarmed in a few generations, lullen into a state of welfare and Obedience to Human Law, daze. Just look at Europe.

But the Leftist alliance got impatient, Hussein Obola pulled the "I'm God" card, and now we're in the last days before Judgment. Or what looks like it.

Funny thing about discovering the existence of evil is that it makes it easier to believe in a force opposing/opposite evil. Even for a person that believed not a single word, of the Bible as Revealed Truth.

Lucifer had a good tool in Che. Maybe Che will be resurrected, the wicked along with the righteous, and we'll have one last good fight to the knife, at the very End. That would be some party. I'm sure Lucifer, aka Satan or the Devil, would be entertained by such a bout as well, given Lucifer's desire to see the maximum pain inflicted on those who follow him as well as those who do not follow him. Although technically 4th+ dimensional divine level entities are its, but I've heard gender surpasses DNA.

3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.

If Trum starts calling himself the Messiah or Hero Savior, that's another que.

Raven, I understand anyone saying something good about Che is hard to stomach, but if you read the article it is mostly a catalog of Che's crimes and evidence that he enjoyed murdering people. The author's claim that Che had a redeeming quality is not really praise in this case.

I bought a Che T-shirt, to which I added a sentence utilizing Argentine slang and grammar: "Si sos hincha de Che, sos hincha de peloduto sin cerebro." Translation: if you are a fan of Che, you are a fan of a brainless[brain-dead] jerk. Though it could be translated stronger than "jerk."

Tom said...

Heh. An Argentinian slogan from the article:

“Tengo una remera del Che y no sé por qué,” or “I have a Che T-shirt and I don’t know why.”

My favorite is still the Che Mickey.

I think it's natural to hate one's enemies and not wish to become like them. But to learn from one's enemies, one must keep things in perspective and control emotions, rather than allow the emotional shock of the enemy's tactics to control us instead.

Adopting the enemy's tactics and strategic superiority is one thing, adopting their ethical philosophy and religion is another. That's a rather hard line to see for most people.
