A kind of different thought today... I believe these two were one of the most influential personalities of last century. Personally I don't agree to their thoughts completely. I don't agree to all of their philosophies... I simply can't. But at the same time I can't stop admiring them as well. There was something in these guys that inspires a lot. The kind of courage and influence on masses they had is amazing. I don't agree to the philosophies they developed because it was based upon the time, society an the way they grew up... the things they saw and the books they read. For that matter none of the philosophies in this world is perfect or long lasting and neither it is or can be universal... so is there thoughts.  But there are plenty of things to learn from these guys. On the very first place I am a big supporter of capitalism even then I can't deny Che as a person. I don't like many of Gandhi's thoughts but again as a person...
I don't know how to put it but once I wrote... "By trying everyone can't become Einstein… but can become Gandhi, even Einstein admired him". 
They tried to achieve what they believed was good for masses. Unfortunately, it was not as ideal for their respective societies as they felt.
