Viva il Che. May 2011.

Love him or hate him, Ernesto 'Che' Guevara's immense popularity and influence lives on up to this very day. And that is the very reason why I have this book in my hands. This photo is not for show; I really enjoy reading books by Che and about Che, which I have a growing collection of. The one in photo is Jorge Castaneda's 'Companero: The Life and Death of Che Guevara'. 

He wasn't able to inspire revolutions because individuals don't inspire revolutions — they inspire movements, respect, and, sometimes, adulation and admiration. Once he was dead, of course, the fact that you could read him any way you wanted, and that there was no danger of being contradicted by him, made it easier in a sense for Che to inspire people. But the fact is that none of the political movements that Che inspired after his death in 1968 were triumphant. The cultural movements were, but the political movements didn't go anywhere. - Jorge Castaneda
