You're only as old as the last time you changed your mind
Listening to a child sound out the words makes you wonder if every manifesto isn't, in some way, written with a child in mind. Some of these kids make it all the way through manifestos I couldn't commit to finishing. Some of these kids are angry because the world isnt the way it should be, or because they'd rather be playing minecraft. Or they are angry because 9 year old boys don't want to read the part in S.C.U.M. manifesto about castration. Its harrowing, funny, and almost hopeful. And a really great reading list too.
