Significant literary effectiveness can come into being only in a strict alternation between action and writing; it must nurture the inconspicuous forms that fit its influence in active communities better than does the pretentious, universal gesture of the book – in leaflets, brochures, articles and placards.

-W. Benjamin

A manifesto is primarily a performance, which uses language to enact a will to realize a particular future. It aims to orientate the reader towards a particular future.

-P. Osborne

Try halting your sub-vocal speech. Try to achieve even ten seconds of inner silence. You will encounter a resisting organism that forces you to talk. That organism is the word. […] Remember that you can separate yourself from the “Other Half” from the word. […] The first step is to record the sounds of your body and start splicing them in yourself. […] Splice your body sounds in with anybody or anything. […] Communication must become total and conscious before we can stop it.

W.S. Burroughs
