Part II: Manifesto
Using the individual norms as a basis, the class will collaboratively author a manifesto that declares how we should conceive of, and act in, the world fifty years from now. You can decide collectively how you want to structure the manifesto, but please provide the following elements:
• A title (the title will contain requisite keywords);
• A list, or some form of designation, of 3 to 5 keywords in the manifesto;
• A preamble — "an introductory and explanatory statement ... of 250-350 words that explains the document's purpose and underlying philosophy;"
• Twelve normative statements;
• A 250-350 word explanation of each normative principle that specifically considers (perhaps through an example or illustration) the possible, or likely, social outcomes and impacts of broad adoption;
• A concluding declaration of 250-350 words synthesizing the normative statements, and their explanation, that offers a shared, coherent vision;
• A list of references — all works cited and consulted. Please see the MLA Formatting and Style Guide.
The twelve normative statements and explanations will be drawn, and revised as necessary, from Part I of the assignment. While the manifesto must include all the elements listed above in some way, please feel free to otherwise reimagine the format.
Please post the manifesto to the appropriate page on our Canvas site no later than 3:05 p.m. on May 5.
