Re-introducing the Manifesto

I’ve been mulling over things recently and, due to an online discussion about my past as a Hegelian (I have a thesis to prove it) I was, well not reminded but rather, forced to contemplate old memory banks as they flung themselves into operation; ‘The Manifesto of Self-Revocation’ hoved itself into view.

‘The Manifesto of Self-Revocation’ was a project that several of us worked upon a very, very long time ago. It originally existed as a website ((Which was http://www.neo-catholic.org. I let the domain registration lapse a while back and until recently it was being sat upon by some domain name reseller; the address no longer seems to resolve. Curious, says I.)) and then I, when I should have been doing other work, made it into a book. We had always intended to print copies, but this was before Print-on-Demand was easy and popular. Not that we were expecting a best-seller, or indeed sales; we just wanted to deposit copies of our ‘religious’ text in libraries and in the homes of whanau.

Anyway, it turns out that the PDF is no longer online and that seems, well, a bit disappointing. So here be a link to a page that contains the most recent version of the text of the religion of the pub of the University of Auckland of the country that should be known as Aotearoa/Te Wai Pounamu on the planet dismally called Earth in a solar system other sapient people don’t seem to visit ((Allegedly.)).
