Strength of character wonderfully combines it with the ability to be compassionate and keen sense of justice. Ernesto insisted that the door of their home was open to all in need. Their house was called "popular", and everyone could find out there help, food and shelter.

The rising star of Medicine

The parents were not surprised when their son has chosen one of the most humane profession — a doctor. Learning was easy for him, spoke of him as a rising star of Medicine.
But the most important thing for Ernesto was to serve the people, not to climb the career ladder. A young doctor, he had lived in the barracks and not only leprosarium there treated leprosy patients, but also tried to bring them the joy of life: he taught to play football and dance.

As a student, Che made the trip to drastically change his life.
Riding a moped, he went on a journey to Latin America. The young man was shocked to see the suffering of ordinary people and the local authorities, who are trying to curry favor with Washington.
In his youth, Che Guevara was an advocate of non-violent ideas of Mahatma Gandhi, a fan of humanistic views of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. Later, he joined the "explosive" works of Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky and Mao Zedong. Then Ernesto saw clearly aim: to fight against American imperialism, depressing underdeveloped country.
After traveling to the U.S., he finally came to the conclusion that Americans — fed philistines who do not want to know anything about the rest of the world. Their state, supporting the well-being of its citizens, squeeze juice from developing countries. Che decided that I had to defend "the downtrodden." "It is better to die standing than live on my knees" — words of Spanish Communist Dolores Ibarruri, which became the motto of Ernesto. Thus began his revolutionary way.

Revolutionary Knight

He was called the Don Quixote of the revolution. But, in contrast to the Knight of the Rueful Countenance, fiery Che was a joyful and sunny person. Need to "feel like a blow struck on you own, any aggression, any insult, any action against the dignity and happiness of man in any part of the world," — wrote Ernesto.
After graduating, Che Guevara traveled to Mexico, where he had a meeting with Fidel Castro, to determine its future: Che joined the revolutionary party. In 1956, with Fidel and 80 enthusiasts, on a yacht, they went to Cuba to make a revolution — overthrow of the dictator Batista.
Ernesto was given voyage is not easy: he fought the brutal attacks of asthma, and to withstand the attack of illness and distraction, wrote the poem.

After reaching the coast of Cuba, Castro's squad suffered serious losses: one died in swamps, others — under the bombs aviation, others have died from dengue fever. In the Sierra Maestra mountains broken only 20 people. Hundreds of Cuban peasants supported the revolutionaries. Victory was hard, but after 738 days in the triumphant revolutionaries entered Havana.
Fidel Castro appointed Che Guevara, Minister of Industry. Ernesto later visited the Soviet Union and came to the conclusion that socialism in Europe is on the wrong path. Relations with the Kremlin he did not add: the Soviet party bosses were nothing like the champions of the people's happiness. His tormented ominous question: why the revolution entails winning a totalitarian regime?
"After the revolution, the work do not revolutionaries. It is made by technocrats and bureaucrats, "- he wrote.
Ministerial seat was close to Che. He yearned to rekindle the fire of revolution worldwide and radically change the course of history, could not be official. Ernesto said, "I was not born to lead the ministry or dying grandfather."

Che Guevara went to Bolivia to revolt and overthrow the dictator René Barentosa. However, Bolivian peasants illiterate poorly understood his lofty ideas and passionate appeals to freedom.
In his last letter to an elderly parent, Ernesto wrote: "Once again, I feel my heels the ribs Rosinante. Again, dressed in armor, I started up the road.
Many people call me an adventurer, and it is. But only me — a special kind of adventurer, from those who risk skin, in order to prove his innocence. Maybe I'm trying to do it last time. " Foreboding had not deceived him.
October 8, 1967 in the Bolivian Andes Che's unit was captured. But even connected and affected by humiliation, Ernesto was terrible to his executioners. The next day, two rangers, inflate whiskey for courage, shaking hands, released in Che Guevara nine bullets. He died with a smile on his face. He was 39 years old.

French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre said of Che Guevara: "Ernesto was not only an intellectual but also the most perfect human being of our age." Indeed, Che was subject unique ability — to think a particular action, be a practical philosopher. Not bogged down in fruitless dreams, he was able to realize the unity of thought and action.
Throughout the life of Ernesto kept a diary, in which constantly analyzed what happened to him.
Obviously, this introspection was for him a kind of psychotherapy, which helps to overcome the conflict between reason and will, to build a bridge from the desire to act. "The fact that it is conceivable that feasible" — liked to Che.
He proved that the will and strength of mind can become a reference for the implementation of the most ambitious projects. "My dream would not have borders. At least as long as the bullets did not say the last word. "
Che dreamed of creating a new free man. "A fair system of society — he argued — is impossible without a radical change in human nature — his habits, awareness and values." And he created himself.

Curse of Che

In superstitious Latin America Che Guevara said sorcerer, to punish their enemies. It is not without reason: because almost everyone who took part in his capture and murder suffered retribution. Someone was killed under mysterious circumstances, some took his own life, crazy or sick incurable disease.
One of the victims of revenge Comandante was a CIA agent Felix Rodriguez, Che oversaw the capture of the U.S. intelligence agencies. Immediately after returning from Bolivia Rodriguez, who had excellent health, fell ill severe asthma. The doctors just shrugged, unable to find the cause of the disease.
Former captain Gary Prado, the commander of special forces, which captured and shot the wounded Che Guevara, even less fortunate. In 1981, during the suppression of the revolt, he was seriously wounded in the spine and partially paralyzed.
Vengeance overtook Antonio Arguedas, who was minister of the interior of Bolivia and to order the punitive anti-partisan operations.

35 years after the death of Che in the central square of Bolivian city of La Paz explosion. In the hands of an elderly person, a bomb exploded. When the police had identified the remains of a terrorist, it turned out that it was Antonio Arguedas. What mysterious force has invested in his hands lethal device — to this day remains a mystery.
It would seem a terrible punishment deserved and two rangers have shot his own Che Guevara.
However, they were only a blind executors of the will of their superiors. Accidents so shaken with fear that, as mentioned above, they had to pump alcohol to execute the order. It must be mitigated and their guilt — killers alive, but eventually cut down. They say they are deeply repented of his deed, and constantly repeated that view Comandante continues to haunt them even in his sleep …
His memory will not disappear. Today, his personality is popular as ever. Views and opinions of Che Guevara inspire people, and the story of his life charges rebellious energy of each new generation.
