Rest in peace, comrade Eric

For all your allegiance to the “communist” cause, inspite of their brutal and inhuman totalitarianism, your work was and is important. I learned a lot from these in particular:

  • Hobsbawm, E. J. 1963. Primitive Rebels: Studies in Archaic Forms of Social Movement in the 19th and 20th Centuries. 2nd ed. New York: Praeger.
  • ———. 1997. On History. London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson.
  • ———. 2011. How to Change the World: Reflections on Marx and Marxism. New Haven, Conn.: Yale Univ. Press.

Pity you could not find your way to the anarchist way. Hamba kahle, comrade.
