“Che is dead, and we all mourn him. Long live Che! Why? How is it that so many libertarians mourn this man?…What made Che such an heroic figure for our time is that he, more than any man of our epoch or even of our century, was the living embodiment of the principle of Revolution… we all knew that his enemy was our enemy–that great Colossus that oppresses and threatens all the peoples of the world, U. S. imperialism… The most fitting memorial to Che was the intensely moving speech about his death delivered by his old comrade-in-arms, Fidel Castro.” (Murray Rothbard, 1967)
(Please note one of Rothbard’s most famous quips, seen in the pic above)
So ignorance of Che Guevara, on the other hand, seems to have posed no restraints on “loud and vociferous” opinions on Che Guevara….at least let’s hope it was ignorance of Che Guevara’s handiwork on (libertarian icon) Rothbard’s part.
Libertarian icon Murray Rothbard’s relationship with Ron Paul’s was such that he even wrote the preface to one of Paul’s books. Ron Paul regards Rothbard as one of America’s “greatest men” and “greatest heroes of freedom.”
Rand Paul, by the way, considers it an honor to have met Murray Rothbard and a “privilege” to have once driven him to the airport. In 1967 Murray Rothbard seemed highly bereaved and aggrieved to hear of Che Guevara’s whacking. Above we see libertarian icon’s encomium to the Stalinist who outlawed private property under penalty of torture-chamber and firing-squad.
