    He promoted anarchy and guerilla warfare as a means of social change.
    He destroyed private property.
    Some historians claim he was a political pawn who carried out the ‘dirty work’ of manipulative intellectuals.
    He led a rebellion which put Francisco Madero in power, but quickly rebelled against Madero’s lackadaisical handling of land rights.
    He angered leaders of other separatist military factions, who in turn destroyed his home state of Morelos.
    He considered Karl Marx’s notion of communism to be a ‘good and humane’ ideology.
    His modern day followers, ‘Zapatistas,’ dress in black masks and ‘terrorize’ land owners.
    He dedicated his life to fight for impoverished peasants, sharecroppers and farmers.
    He was a key figure of the Mexican Revolution.
    His objective was to achieve political and economic emancipation of Mexican peasants.
    His assassination came as the result of a political adversary’s ambush.
    Following his death, many peasants reported seeing him riding a horse and watching over their villages.
    His father died when he was 18 and he became a sharecropper to support his mother and sisters.
    Although he praised Karl Marx’s political ideology, he felt communism was ‘impractical.'
    He said: ‘I wish to die as a slave to principles, not men.’
