the two main idols of left and right wing after ww2 choose wisely -one of them is successful, leads men, enjoys the good life, dies the death of a hero -the other is a poser, works out in a gym, is not taken seriously by anybody except by his boyfriends, kills himself out of shame

>implying anyone will defend Mishima's politics I'm reading his fiction now, he's a fantastic writer but he lived in a fantasy world of samurai myths and bygone eras that didn't actually exist. Killing himself was ironically a way to preserve that mythology. So Che I guess.

Both their politics were shit but atleast Mishima made up for it by writing good books.

Che was a cretin compared to Mishima.

>>3003202 What is the value of being a patrician if it involves no conception of social justice or a vision of the world that is just about hierarchy and order? I'd rather support a cretin with a heart than serve under a heartless patrician.

I'm not sure if Mishima was really a main idol of the right. He was way too into his feudal dreams to attract the kind of admiration someone like Ayn Rand garnered.

>>3003211 Rand is "admired" more than Mishima because her beliefs are useful to significant interests, i.e. republicans and right wing libertarians who wield significant power as a political base. Mishima's ideology was not useful at all, it was an impediment to modernisation and thus was rejected.

Fidel Castro is cool, but Kurosawa is the better musician

>>3003170 Che was a failure of a domestic leader (who paradoxically garnered fame from the same people he would have executed) and Mishima never had any power. If Mishima went fascist without going back to feudal japan I would choose him, even with his anti-modernization policies I choose him compared to a communist.

I'm on the very far left and I think Mishima was awesome. Che? Eh... he was ok

I'm on the very far left and I think Mishima was awesome. Che? Meh... I kinda think if you're on the right (especially if you're on the right in the west) and you idolise Mishima you've really misread his philosophy.

>>3003277 We all know the US has violently intervened in every single democratic movement in South America and spewed every lie about those who've fought against their imperialism. The fact that you still believe the capitalist lie is hilarious at best.

>>3003307 Never said I agreed with western coercion on South America. I also don't believe violence and coercion are compatible with an actual free market system.

They were both terrible. But as a Latino Che is especially abhorrent to me because he killed so many of my people.

>>3004824 is it true that you are planning to create a latino nation consisting of california and new mexico when SHTF in USA?

>>3004841 No. Latinos will naturally integrate with other Americans because Latinos have always been a mongrel race. Eventually our people will become one.

>>3003197 > speaking of which, was Che's motorcycle diaries any good? Yes, surprisingly good. Che was somewhat a buffoon (and a dangerous one) IRL, but his diaries are honest, sincere and emotionally engaging.
