To which Kathy Shaidle commented:
I’m in general agreement, because with very few exceptions, most “manifestos” are a contradiction in terms.
By definition, they are written to arouse outrage and action amongst the general population, but are more frequently just a record of someone talking to themselves. The Unabomber’s manifesto would never have been published if he hadn’t killed a bunch of people….
When I finish my U.S. healthcare reform white paper, I think I’ll call it a manifesto.
