From the FAQ:
Inn other words, the tone is specifically chosen to get people pissed off. Parts of it (Chapter IV IIRC, read this a few seconds ago) is admittedly heavily based on the Communist Manifesto. So the tone and strong wording should not be focused, as it just distracts from the actual content.Q: Then why is the Manifesto such an overkill?
A: To get attention and create discussion. Some have said that a more down-to-earth type of a manifesto would've succeeded better in this, but we chose to do it like this. I discuss how this worked in Foreword to the 3rd Edition and LARP manifesting.
Q: Aren't you kind of pretentious?
A: Yes. Want to make something of it?
