About two years ago, I read a collection of Aaron Swartz'es essays-- I read all of them, but avoided the socialist ones. I'd read some of them, then say, "oh no, not more socialist bullshit, I don't want to go off the deep end."
I ended up reading one of those essays that was about how "socialism" being this ideology no-one even thinks about was very intellectually dishonest, and that accepting the world for how it was is closed-minded. I was convinced, and then read his socialist essays... and it's been uphill from there.

Looks like he's continuing to affect lives long after his death. High praise.
