Jean-Pierre

This lovely tribute to Jean-Pierre,  in explaining and analyzing what made him tick, and the way he lived his life, takes on a sort of universal meaning, and becomes in addition a tribute to all those who can see beyond capitalism and beyond the awful limitations it imposes on the whole of suffering and alienated humanity; and even almost a tribute to those of us who can't  see this yet.  It is a fanfare to the possibilities of human life buried for the moment under the shit of bourgeois society.  It is beautifully written  and I want to express  my admiration, not just for Jean-Pierre, but for those able to appreciate what he stood for in the way he lived and died, and capable of getting their understanding down on paper so clearly for  the rest of  us to read and take heart from.
