Diversity of Thought

About: ferguson demonstrations invoke che guevara - oh! the ironies! - humberto fontova - page full

source: ...

When a comedian‘s “brilliant” witticism bombs he'll often complain to the "dumb" audience that: "The irony is lost on you people!"

In this spirit of “lost irony” I give you (pro) Michael-Brown demonstrators wearing Che Guevara T-Shirts at the recent Ferguson demonstrations.

Why “lost irony” some readers might ask?

“Don’t Shoot!” was the Ferguson demonstrator slogan/chant right? Well, upon his very first (and very brief) experience with something properly describable as combat, the world’s most celebrated “guerrilla fighter” actually snuck away from the firefight, crawled towards the Bolivian soldiers doing the firing"then as soon as he spotted two of them at a distance, stood and yelled: "Don't Shoot! I'm Che! I'm worth more to you alive than dead!" Among Cuba-watchers Che’s whimpering plea ranks right up there with Roberto Duran’s famous “No Mas!” to Sugar Ray Leonard in the pantheon of sniveling surrenders.

...
If you read the entire article you might be surprised what Castro/Che thought of blacks.

What good is diversity & freedom if your thoughts are monolithic ?


well yes, monolithic thoughts are thoughts in a rut ... they are habitual.  It feels good to free ourselves of them ... one way is to think the novel-to-us thoughts  of others.
Yeah - such is the message in the title of the Book of Not Knowing ; hardly ever practiced in practical life!
