I consider myself a proud radical, a revolutionary who likes to spread his ideals both in person and online. I am a first generation immigrant from Asia who has served in the United States Army. I have lived in many different regions of the country, from Alabama to New York to Michigan to Arizona. I named myself after Comrade Gonzalo, aka Abimael Guzman, who led a socialist uprising in Peru in the 1980's and 1990's. Although he was under the constant threat of arrest or assassination, he never stopped fighting for the poor and oppressed indigenous peoples of rural Peru. In 1992, he was arrested for his revolutionary beliefs, but he refused to recant his values, and even though he is serving a life sentence for his opposition to the Peruvian government, he remains as strongly devoted to the revolutionary cause as ever. His courage and devotion to the people through thick and thin are values that I want to emulate. I believe that there needs to be a peaceful revolution here in the United States. There is systematic racism, extreme sexism, and a culture of cutthroat capitalism where the workers suffer just to fatten the pockets of billionaires. This system of hate and greed is unsustainable, and must be overthrown sooner or later. I enjoy explaining my views to other people, and listening to what they have to say. Hopefully, I will enlighten the other users of this forum about what I think the best path for this country is.
