    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    "Hey, do you know who that guy on your T-shirt is?"
    "Yeah, Che Guevara. He invented anarchy."

    "Che shot women"

    How about a t-shirt based on Che's real life activities: 'Che tortured Homosexuals' or 'Che liked to execute children' or 'Che shits on oranges''. ;)


    I would purchase one of those Che T-shirts. His lionisation is nothing short of reprehensible. Then again, we live in a Western world where it is deemed morally and socially acceptable to call one's self a communist.

    Hey, whatever sells, right?


    I'm still fond of the picture of che and the words say "I have no idea who this is".


    And suddenly, I feel as though I've come home.

    robin: Yeah, it was a response I got on my uni campus about three years back.

    Yeah, well...the fact that people on this board understand who Che actually was makes me all warm inside.

    Last semester in my World Humanities class we did a unit on globalization...except we didn't do a unit on globalization, we did a unit on global socialism and why it's awesome and how all opposing points of view are wrong and stupid. Now, I'm not that huge a fan of capitalism, but this I took offense to. The final project of the semester was a group project presenting a chapter on the book about "globalization", each group taking a different chapter. My group went last, and I was the last person in my group to present. In hind sight I wish I had brought a wooden crate and written "SOAP" on the side because i railed into socialism and all its forms, and how it's never helped anyone, anywhere, ever (except in France). This included a bit on Che and why he's a douche bag. I was the only person in the entire class of thirty+ students to take this position. Although it felt good to be the sole representative of critical thinking and reason, I kind of died a little inside because of the stupidity and susceptibility of my classmates.

    @tedcroland

    I think you might be my new hero. What kind of grade did you get for that? Were there any consequences?

    I didn't pass, but I don't think grades were actually given for the assignment (stupid hippie teachers and their 'progressive' grading curves). I didn't pass because I also refused to do half the work in the class. I'm not a very good hero.
