We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, but not all can write.
The course of recent technological events has made the separation of those who can write from their contracts, exploitations, and fears — which keep them from independence and prosperity — complete.
We have been endowed with absolute possibility, and the tools to pursue it.
If any individual or organization becomes an enemy of this possibility, we can … leave.
We will lay a foundation of study, research, and practice, so that nothing can lock our destiny away from us.
If our pursuit ends in failure, we can begin again.
Organizing our powers through dedication and sweat, we are now marked only by courage, workmanship, and character.
For we need never return to the abuses, ignorance, and shallow suggestions of those who — knowing nothing of its power — belittle the craft.
It is our collective duty in this age to throw off such idiocy, and work honorably toward our intent.
We have been patient through centuries of derision and misuse.
We are now declared free from the tyranny of The Gatekeeper.
We are free to engage the marketplace directly, and to live or die by our best ideas, and honest efforts.
Will you join us?
