Happy Valentine’s Day – Be a Troublemaker

Che Guevara valentine's Day 2016 YJC Love the youth

“At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great
feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality. Perhaps,
it is one of the great dramas of the leader that he or she must combine a passionate spirit
with a cold intelligence and make painful decisions without flinching. Revolutionaries must
idealize this love of the people, of the most sacred causes, and make it one and indivisible.
They cannot descend, with small doses of daily affection, to the level where ordinary people
put their love into practice…In these circumstances one must have a great deal of humanity
and a strong sense of justice and truth in order not to fall into extreme dogmatism and cold
scholasticism, into isolation from the masses. We must strive every day so that this love of
living humanity will be transformed into actual deeds, into acts that serve as examples,
as a moving force.”
– Ernesto “Che” Guevara
