    More importantly, why do individuals such as Humberto Fontova continue to prattle on about this? I have distaste for art too, since I simply can't think well of a canvas of chicken scratchings selling for millions of dollars while poverty, homelessness, disease and other social ills still afflict society. But the purpose of veneration of Che, (and I have far less love for Che than other socialists do), is purely because of his role in the Revolution and other struggles.

    What gets me are the people who wear Che Guevara shirts without even knowing who he truly was. He was an anti-social homicidal maniac who was also a dentist.

    The dentist bit really just puts the nail in the coffin, doesn't it? ;)

    Yes, that's what I meant. Even just mentioning dentists, flusters me. They are evil! :evil:

    Indeed.

    And again, as to Che, I have far less love for him than many other socialists do, (though anarchist "doctrine" is supposed to be opposed to him altogether, though Subcomandante Marcos of the EZLN still supports the Castro government), but I still admire his various struggles in the Cuban Revolution and elsewhere.
