    Locke has the ability to masterfully mingle fact with sarcasm and can certainly be compared to the likes of Colbert, Stewart or Maher, all while steering the reader down a path of documented truths and injustices both past and present. He can present an argument with so many overarching questions regarding how to achieve the greater good that one often finds himself/herself in a position where it is extremely hard to disagree with him. He possesses a knowledge of history and the injustices against mankind that is absolutely enviable. I dare you to read this book and engage him on any of its topics. In doing so I would almost guarantee that at the very least, if your mind is not changed that you will at least be exposed to a completely new point of view that you have not yet considered.

    John Locke is a gifted, versatile writer, and a champion of social justice, facts to which the student essays collected in this volume attest. His blogpostings pick up the theme in response to daily events. If there is a drawback to The Stuff I’ve Written So Far, it is the fact that both forms, the student essay and the blog, are written for the occasion, and in the case of the essays, under a teacher’s guidance. Nothing wrong with that. But the sense one gets is that one is not yet hearing John’s own voice, a voice that speaks to the present moment (as the blogpostings do) but that also resonates (as the essays do) with a capacious understanding of where the specifics fit within the larger story of humankind’s struggle with its own selfishness. Combining both elements, personal passion with historical depth, in a way that brings the writer’s own personality authoritatively to bear on issues of social justice, is a goal not quickly and easily reached. Yet the book's title, “stuff I’ve... More > written so far,” suggests there’s more stuff to come, and better. And given the ambitious, multifarious trajectory of Locke's scholarly and activist career to date, we can expect the “more” to show development along the lines I’ve mentioned, towards invention of a voice that can truly engage on something like equal terms with the voice of his intellectual namesake, the great 18th century English philosopher.< Less
