I agree; he was just some punk kid that the media decided to glorify due to the unusual nature of his behavior. He's hardly a "revolutionary."

Most "revolutionaries" are hardly that. Every time I see some dumb bitch in Berkeley wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt, I really want to ask her if she's a fan of South American drug lords.

That's why I prefer this shirt, featuring a man who actually helped revolutionize an aspect of human culture! <3

Really, in the end, what this kid's story amounts to is a safe fantasy. He lived outside the law without daring to really challenge anyone or anything meaningful. It has the romantic notion of 'freedom' attached without the risks or effort involved in something real.
