Writer - Adrian S. Potter
Listen. I have something to say.
This is my manifesto. I will publish this on all social media platforms, as well as on my blog. You see, I have an opinion. It may be a commonly accepted opinion, but I’ll make it seem like I’m saying something daring and noteworthy. Nonetheless, this is my viewpoint and I’m courageous for putting it out there for friends and acquaintances to read.
This sentence is so critical it warrants being its own paragraph.
Here are my beliefs. Those beliefs vaguely correlate to the radical transformation society must undergo to solve its problems.
Here are my ideals. They are unbiased and politically correct. Here’s an anecdote about how I ended a friendship/broke up with a significant other/quit a job because others didn’t share those ideals, even though it’s obvious that they should.
Here is a trite quote from a famous person that’s only slightly related to the subject at hand.
Here is a passive-aggressive statement about the impending downfall of humanity. Here’s where I pretend that I’m making a fascinating point by using personal stories…unnecessary ellipses and trendy buzzwords for emphasis, until the final, conclusive thought…closes it all out…with flair. Here is a hard-hitting short sentence. Just to reiterate my point.
In conclusion, equality, inclusivity, what about the children and the future. So now you’re a better person for having read this rant, and I feel validated and self-important for helping to make you that better person.
I am creating change. If you want to be a changemaker, too, share this post.
Adrian S. Potter is not related to Harry Potter, but would pretend to be his cousin for a book deal or cold beer. When he isn’t crafting a groundbreaking third-person bio, he’s contributing text to publications like North American Review and Jet Fuel Review.
