'The Anonymous Revolutionary', Max Edwards, has died.

I WAS SAD to read that the young revolutionary socialist, Max Edwards, has passed away. He had been battling cancer for some six months.

His parents, Dan and Jenny, have left a 'A Final Post' on his blog which reads:

Writer, Philosopher, Thinker, Musician, Artist

The Anonymous Revolutionary – Max Edwards, our son – died on 26th March 2016, age 16.

He loved writing this blog and sharing his ideas with you. In the later months of his life in particular it was a great source of comfort to him.

Thank you all for your support. Thank you all for making a young revolutionary very happy.

"It was a privilege to meet Max Edwards with @Ed_Miliband just 2 weeks ago. He was a fantastic young man who will be missed terribly,' wrote Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on Twitter.

Former Labour leader Ed Miliband wrote: "It was a privilege to meet Max 2 weeks ago. A very special young man. My heart breaks for Dan, Jenny, Esme and Toby.

Max, I think, might like these words from one of his heroes, Leon Trotsky. Near the end of his life, in his final 'Testament',  he wrote:

'Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression, and violence, and enjoy it to the full."
