  1. Max.
    To a man involved in the anti racist movement in the 70s and 80s, I thought capitalism had lead younger generations to believe Marxism was dead. Comrade, you have reignited the flame of belief.
    Keep fighting.

  2. Max,
    Your courage, maturity and thoughtful insight are so inspiring! I’m sure your book will do well.
    Recently I found that a tutor of mine, many years ago, when I was lucky enough to win the opportunity to do postgraduate study in Sri Lanka, was Doric de Souza, who was one of the people who introduced Trotskyist communism to the island. Reading about Doric and his beliefs made me look up Friedrich Engels, and I then read his book about mid-Victorian Manchester. I’m giving a talk about it this week, to our local history society. And I’m going to tell them to read your book and your blogs, too! (If only my blogs were written daily, also!)

  3. Hey Max,
    Just read your blog in the Guardian,. Managed to make its way all the way down here to little old New Zealand. I am blown away by your maturity, intelligence and self reflection/awareness at such a young age. Afterwards I’ve been reading some of the posts on this blog. Very good work and your attitude is very inspiring to me. Hope you continue to thrive in your less than ideal circumstances. You seem to view the world and death in ways very similar to me and ill be reading this site daily now. Cheers bro!!!(thanks mate)

    Regards
    Rikki

  5. Oh, and here is an idea. If you find it helpful, you can write regulary about your thoughts and feelings upon your condition as well, beside your philosophical and political thoughts. Thats totaly up to you ofc, but I am letting you know it is welcome. Relieve for you, literature for us πŸ™‚ And we would like to hear how youre doing, joke on a side, I am sure I am not talking only in my behalf

  7. I only found out about you last week Max and now I know you are no longer here. Your humility, clear thinking, selflessness, bravery, compassion and huge heart in one so young and one now gone, could teach many, many people. I hope the words you wrote will continue to reach others, to touch others and to change others as they did me.
