What is a manifesto, anyway?
According to Merriam-Webster, a manifesto is a written statement publicly declaring the intentions, motives, or views of its issuer.
According to Wikipedia, the first known English use of the word was in these two sentences in 1620:
"To this citation he made answer by a Manifesto" and "They were so farre surprised with his Manifesto, that they never would suffer it to be published."
The word is still used and understood the same way today, almost 400 years later, even headlining as the name of a 2015 film by Julian Rosefeldt.
