The Left is good at propaganda. As a movie I enjoyed The Motorcycle Diaries, but as history it was disturbing. It amazes me that Americans can see any virtue in Che's life story. He has more in common with Vlad the Impaler or Stalin's deputy executioners like Lavrenty Beria. The desire for justice and enfranchisement is understandable, the willingness to inflict death and pain on others to impose your own tyranny is despicable. The problem with coercive Utopians is it is always their definition of perfect they impose through violence on others. I don't want to trade one tyrant for another tyranny. Yet the Marxist leveling philosophy persists in its appeal to those who can't read and understand history and human nature.
