I am Angus. I am a 18 year old from Brisbane, Australia.
I am studying a Bachelor of Arts at University of Queensland majoring in Political Science and History. I am also an organiser on campus.
I have a lovely girlfriend called Julia, who is pretty special to me. She is a big part of my life, and keeps me normal, well not normal, but socially presentable(ish). You can find her here, but she doesn’t post anymore.
And well, I love her. She is amazing.
I have an excellent circle of friends/sources of money/possible captains of the future Red Army. They are my second family, my comrades, brothers and sisters and the most intelligent and dedicated circle of people I have met. They are not all like me, some of them are, some of them aren’t. These include my comrade-“sister:, Leela, she is like family, and means the world to me. She is as passionate as me, if not a bit less keen on violent insurrection. She lobbied our school for recycle bins. She is very cool and has a personal blog and a political/environmental blog. Some of my other friends on here include Amy, this guy and Damian. They are all excellent people.
My interests, well reading, I do a lot of it, fiction and non-fiction. Also rock music, I love me a bit of rock and roll. I write, a little bit, mostly political essays and hypothetical speeches/articles/important documents. Also, political activism, is a hobby/my life.
As you will know this is a personal blog, but I am very political, so for me politics is personal and that is the reason most of you follow me, so lets get to that shall we:
I am a libertarian socialist. I am an environmentalist, gay rights activist, feminist, Marxist, trotskyist, communist, democracy loving, freedom fighting, vegetarian, anarchistic, secular humanist, Che Guevara t-shirt wearing socialist.
My personal heroes are a diverse bunch, including “Che” Guevara, Leon Trotsky, Carl Sagan, Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin, Touissant Louverture, Oscar Wilde, Malcom X, the Black Panther Party, MLK Jr., Karl Marx, Emma Goldman, Peter Kropotkin, the list goes on…
If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine. - Ernesto “Che” Guevara
