I found this blog to be extremely interesting. The way he grew up in contrast with his view on the world now is truly inspiring. Many would assume that a child growing up knowing nothing but violence would be prone to a life of criminal mischief, jail, or worse. After reading this blog it is evident that he has truly taken his experiences and use them as instruments to better the world around him.
A striking aspect of the blog is that he cannot think of one childhood friend that is still alive. Instead of toys and fun experiences he can only remember funerals and prison visits. He did not even get to meet his own father until he was three years old. Given the circumstances he was handed, I think his outlook on life is a really great one.
I found it humorous that he thought riots were a good time when he was growing up. His sense of humor gave the entire blog a lighter feel to it when normally the information content would be extremely dark and upsetting. It makes sense to me that he would be an anarchist after all of his experiences seeing police officers and the government committing injustices. Although he presents his opinions in a somewhat sarcastic way, I feel that he does a fantastic job at getting his point across and I found myself shaking my head at the things he had to witness.
It is pretty clear to me that this man truly believes in the group effort to get done what needs to be accomplished. His passion for protesting things he finds wrong really shines through in his writing. It is also very clear to me that he supports the underdog and wants an end to the over-power of militaries on helpless groups of people.
