i hear a certain... innocence? ... i don't hear that anymore at all. almost like a student quality.
Regardless, it was its own kind of gorgeous (okay, REALLY gorgeous. Okay, no, heart-thumpingly gorgeous. Okay, I'll stop now) and powerful. I've always had the PDF and audo of this on a thumb drive. I think it's on my old 30GB iPod with the spindle hard drive still. Really, the manifesto pulled my desperately-searching-for-purpose-but-failing-Mormon ass back into idealism, where I wasn't just waiting for the world to end and magic Jesus to create some cosmic universal justice and justify human existence. It's only really respectful and safe, I think, to talk about how this affected me personally, because the consequences I faced post take-down were losing the community. My livelihood and family and happiness weren't ripped from me.
Thank you for being such a die-hard idealist, for giving parts of your life to us, to the world at large, to contributing to real justice in this really fucking unworthy world, for burning yourself for the greater good.
Your voice now, I dare to feel, is as idealist as it has ever been, and a new iteration of the same voice that thrusted out rage before a world of mediocrity and very real tyranny. It is every kind of relevant in a post-11 September 2001 world, where the West, and the US empire, continue to expand with very little pretext other than unholy hubris. I'm processing the fact that the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution is effectively repealed by judicial decree, and goddammit you and your doings are extremely fucking relevant to that horror.
