Global neoliberalism parades victoriously through our era, monopolizing its discourse and ideology. To confront the inherent perversity of the capitalist system’s universal domination we need, more than ever, alternative modes of thinking and acting that are universal, global, planetary. We need ideas and models that, in a thoroughly radical fashion, confront the worship of the market and of money which has become the dominant credo of the moment. As is the case with very few other leftist leaders of the twentieth century, the legacy of Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara—universal spirit, internationalist and consistent revolutionary—continues to mount such a challenge.

Che was not just a heroic combatant. He was also a revolutionary thinker, a harbinger of a political and ethical project for which he fought and died. The philosophy that gives cohesiveness, color and warmth to his ideological thrust is a profound and original revolutionary humanism.2 For Che, the true communist, the true revolutionary is one who regards the greater problems of mankind as his own personal problem; one who “feels deeply troubled every time a man is killed, anywhere in the world; and is filled with great joy whenever the flag of liberty unfolds anywhere in the world.” His internationalism, in addition to a way of life, a secular faith, a categorical imperative, and a spiritual abode was the most original, purest, combative and concrete expression of this revolutionary humanism.3


Mortal enemy of capitalism and imperialism, Ernesto Guevara dreamed of a world of justice and liberty, where men would cease to prey on other men. The human being of this new society who Che called the “new man” or the “man of the 21st century” would be an individual who, after breaking the shackles of alienation, would bond with his neighbors in true solidarity and concrete universal brotherhood.5 This new world must be a world of socialism. Che’s famous remark in his “Letter to the Tricontinental” (1967) is very much apropos: “No other alternatives are left, either a socialist revolution or a travesty of the revolution.”

I wouldn't trust an article on Che from a self proclaimed "independent socialist magazine."

Che was a wicked, murderous individual. The world is better without him and his "legacy."
