Listening to a kid sound out the words makes you wonder if every manifesto isn't, in some way, written with a kid in mind. Some of these kids make it all the way through manifestos I couldn't commit to finishing. Some of these kids are pissed but maybe because 9yo boys don't want to read the part in S.C.U.M. manifesto about castration. This year, the first of Gen Z enters a grim post-pandemic job market concerend with comfort above all else, while a few Gen Alpha kids read historical manifestos into a mic.  Its harrowing, funny, and almost hopeful. great list of readings too.
