Breton's surrealist manifesto?

Meaning of Manifesto[edit]

Where did the word come from?

Manifesto is what linguists call a neoclassical word. Some pseudointellectual in a post-classical era wanted to come up with an important-sounding word for his list of alleged truisms, and so used the Latin word Manifestus, meaning "clearly evident", but changed the ending slightly. --Kaz 19:06, 16 March 2006 (UTC)


Wasn't Kascinzky's self-defense published in Hustler called "The Unabomber Manifesto"? It may be considered the manifesto of the Neo-Luddite or anti-technological movement...--Rockero 03:08, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

The manifesto was published in the The Washington Post and in the The New York Times. Check out the Unabomber article. You will find the references there. Maziotis (talk) 10:35, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Resistance Manifesto[edit]

Somebody added the Resistance Manifesto. This document looks more like a book of conspiracy theories than a political or artistic manifesto in the traditional sense. They also placed it out of chronological order. I'm considering removing it, but I'll wait to see if I get any responses.--Rockero 01:39, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

Good eye. The Resistance Manifesto is a one-man campaign focused on sucking and removing the Georgia Guidestones, a stone monument. The man, called "John Conner", has been a very persistent problem over the last year or two with the "Resistance Manifesto" article (it was VfD'd but he kep re-creating it).

If his project ever gets off the ground and becomes notable then there'd be a reason to have an article about him or it. -Willmcw 07:36, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

Workers' Rights Manifesto[edit]

I removed this line:

It's an external link (no Wiki article) and doesn't appear to have been published anywhere besides the site to which the EL points. It doesn't appear to be notable enough for inclusion.--Rockero 21:04, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Possible copyright infringement.[edit]

~~ Simba 01:38, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
The opening of the Manifesto page is identical save for a switch of words near the end to's primary definition of the word. I'm new to Wikipedia, so I don't know if this truly constitutes a copyright infringement, especially since I'm not sure whether's definitions are their copyright, but I thought it was worth pointing out, anyway.

Date inconsistency[edit]

"What is property" is listed as being published in 1850, whereas on the dedicated page for this work it is noted that it was published in 1840. I do not know which of these is the correct date, but if someone does, feel free to adjust whichever page is incorrect. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:44, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Revolution Manifestos[edit]

the page seems to be missing manifesto's that are key to some of histories famous revolutions. Certainly the October Manifesto of 1905 in Russia is an example, Nicholas saved his reign (for the time being) by his issueing it. Although maybe not strictly manifestos- the National assemblies Declaration of the rights of man and Castro's "history will absolve me" speech are two examples of documents that would define the respective revolutionary movements cause.

A Cyborg Manifesto[edit]

I would argue that, though it mentions cyborgs and technology, the Cyborg Manifesto is more of a political, feminist, socialist document rather than a technological one. I think it should be moved to the political column. Gilly027 (talk) 17:31, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Manifesto. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Cheers. —cyberbot IITalk to my owner:Online 06:31, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
