Nearly four decades after his death, the legend of Che Guevara still looms large, though the testimony of eyewitnesses and a close study of his ideology and actions reveal that the real legacy of Che is very different than the popular perception. This analysis argues that his belief in centralized power was not the solution to poverty and injustice but rather perpetuated the problem. By separating the myth from the reality, this exploration exposes his ideas as recycled and his successes as damaging to the real revolution among the poor: the liberation of individuals from constraints of state power in both public and private spheres.
