“When the forces of oppression come to maintain themselves in power against established law, peace is already considered broken.”

Ernesto "Che" Guevara, *Guerrilla Warfare*

Guevarism, Cheism or Focoism is a revolutionary leftist, communist, culturally left, ball that promotes exporting a Socialist revolution to countries whose leaders are supported by an empire with a particular, although not exclusive emphasis on guerrilla warfare outside urban areas.

Cheism is an original political philosophy movement, a view of society based on an interpretation of dialectical materialism, a Cheism an analysis of capitalism, a theory of social change, a system of thought about human liberation derived from the work of Ernesto Che Guevara and Fidel Castro.

Cheism as a doctrine includes a political, social and philosophical unity. Cheism is defined as a type of thought based on Marxism, which puts forward the theory of class struggle as an ideological basis and predicts that the dictatorship of the proletariat and then communism, the world of social equality and freedom, will be the necessary result of this struggle.

The idea is that vanguardism by cadres of small, fast-moving paramilitary groups can provide a focus (in Spanish 'foco') for popular discontent against a sitting regime and thereby lead a general insurrection. Although originally meant to mobilize and launch attacks from rural areas, it is not exclusively rural.

Guevarism advocated for a global peoples war and many Vietnams to bring down US Imperialism and global capitalism, these bedtime stories inspired his other son Maoism–Third Worldism to take up the mantel of people's global war.

Amigos (Friends)

Amienemigos (Frenemies)

  • Peronism - Good friend, but he doesn't like foco.
  • Trotskyism - You're apparently revisionist, but exporting the revolution is a very nice idea!
  • Posadism - Wacky! Is this even a real ideology. Plus, don't fight with Castro!
  • Anarcho-Capitalism - We don't agree on literally anything, but apparently he admires me? Thanks I guess.
  • Anarcho-Communism - Thank you for telling America about the atrocities of Batista's regime, but this is too anarchist for my liking.
  • Marxism-Leninism-Maoism - Some of you like me, but our Peruvian variants hate each other, even though sometimes (if not rarely)... we cooperated against the bourgeois capitalist Peruvian government.
  • Titoism - Kinda revisionist, who divided the world socialist movement, but I do appreciate your support of the Cuban Revolution and the third world, and your leadership in the NAM. I also sent people to study Yugoslavia’s agrarian reform and socialist education.
  • Ortegaism - I am glad that you won in Nicaragua after all, even if by now you're too moderate and sometimes simping to Russian imperialism.
  • Socialism of the 21st Century - Evo is the best president of Bolivia though also too moderate at times.
