A written document prepared by a single person, intended to garner attention towards a specific topic or issue.

Associated infamously with the ramblings of a fanatical zealot or crazed madman, a manifesto can take the form of an autobiography, essay, or critique by the author, and may be published or sent to a public media source.
The school shooter prepared his manifesto with a meticulous ferver, hoping to share his fallible ideology with the world.

Generally, this is really just a fancy term for an essay. Alternatively, it can be used for an essay that's too good to be called an essay (especially if it's a rather grandiose critique on something).

Me: Sorry just gotta finish up my manifesto before it's due tomorrow

(n.) An announcement of intended future actions. Sounds like a homosexual orgy.
Elitist went along to the manifesto hearing, but was disappointed to discover that there was no gay orgy audio clips.

Streetlight - Lamp
Manifesto - Decree

Streetlight + Manifesto = Pure Unadulturated Musical Joy

Late August 2003 saw the emergence of this third-wave ska band. Streetlight combines many different music styles, including, jazz, reggae, punk, acoustic, and rock all to produce a style of music which has the potential to make people respect - yes, i said respect - the much-looked-down-upon genre of Ska.

The band itself is formed from the best of two other ska groups, old Catch 22 and One Cool Guy. From Catch 22 there is Josh Ansley (bass), Jamie Egan (trumpet) and Tomas Kalnoky (guitar, vocals & songwriting). From One Cool Guy there is Chris Thather (drums), Jim Conti (tenor sax), Dan Ross (bari sax), and Mike Saprano (trombone.)

Kalnoky is truly the heart of the band. His guitar playing is not necessarily anything special in itself, though it is still good. His vocals, however, are where he shines the most, having refined his voice and brought it to new more angry and energetic heights since "Keasby Knights." His song writing is extremely origonal and diverse. Songs do not follow cliched patterns of verse-chorus-verse. You never know what to expect. Also, Kalnoky's lyrics are absolutely incredible - a good friend of mine made the observation that they were almost as good as radiohead's (that's pretty good). The other sections of the band are equally amazing. Thather on drums is easily one of the most talented contemporary drummers and goes from style to style as he plays. John Ansley is also a terrific bassist with some of the most ingenuitive lines i have ever heard. And finally, the horn section is what gives streetlight their power. Unlike other ska bands nowadays, the horn section does not have "corny" horn lines or only come out with occasional bursts here and there. Streetlight features very complex horn parts which define the sound of the band, and the horns very often have terrific solos. All that having been said this makes for a truly terrific band.

Their first cd was known as "Everything Goes Numb." Truly top notch stuff. It is diverse and a perfect combination of wonderful songs which produce a cohesive album. Key tracks include, "Everything Went Numb," "Point/Counterpoint" and "A Moment of Silence." In fact, every song on this cd is a hit, and I could not claim to dislike anyone of them. I highly reccommend that you buy this cd, even if Ska's not your thing. You'll be glad you did.

One of the most influential political, social and economic texts of all time and the most influential one in the 20th century written in 1848 by german philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Karl Marx, the father of both Communism and Socialism wrote alongside with his collaborator Friedrich Engels the Communist Manifesto or the Manifesto of the Communist party which is a document that outlines the progression of Capitalism and the detriments of Capitalism on society and the implementation of Communism as the solution. In the end of the manifesto it is advocated the overthrow of all existing social conditions and for the workers of the world to unite and to seize the means of production to pave way for the transition from Capitalism to Socialism and ultimately to Communism.
"The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles".
-Karl Marx
"Accumulation of wealth at one pole is at the same time accumulation of misery, agony of toil, slavery, ignorance, brutality, mental degradation, at the opposite pole." -Karl Marx

Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Workingmen of all countries, unite! -Karl Marx

One of the most accepted definitions of Communism is the strictly theoretical system imagined by Karl Marx in which all of society, all of economics and all politics are combined into one, perfect, classless, automatic, government-less system based on common ownership of all economic means of production, and social sameness. To achieve this utopian dream, Karl Marx and Frederich Engels wrote the "Communist Manifesto" to inspire violent revolution everywhere.
Communism, as such, does not exist, has never existed, and perhaps may never exist.
Communism has failed so far to fulfill its promise of an egalitarian society based on working-class values.
