Mahatma Gandhi & Che Guevara   Leave a comment

Street art in Wicker Park, hipster Chicago neighborhood, looks nice and has deeper meaning.  The same painting has Gandhi with humble peaceful smile and Che looking determined to use all necessary means to achieve his goals. One man has never killed and another one eliminated as many as he deemed useful. Two are icons of the Left in struggle for Social Justice.  Before red sky with revolutionary masses both men are united by suffering of millions that coursed by their deed and ideology. Both men represent favorite myths and symbols without regard to disastrous results and lessons that could be learned from history.
