"At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that a true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love."I came this close to saying something to my fellow teacher, because the moment I read that quote, another quote of Che's came immediately to my mind:
"This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate."Now that sounds more like the Che Guevara I know. The only thing he loved was killing bound and blindfolded victims. It was on the tip of my tongue to ask this teacher if they sell Che shirts with his hate quote on it, but I just couldn't do it. I have to work with this guy, and despite our totally opposite political viewpoints, we get along quite nicely and have some very intriguing and long conversations about other matters relating to schools and students. Besides, he hasn't said anything about this poster I recently hung up in my classroom, even though I know he has seen it:
I would welcome any reader input about whether or not I should say anything to Mr. Che-phile, but for now, I guess I won't say anything to him unless he takes issue with this poster.
Good Day to You, Sir
