FC: A Tale of Two Versions

Differences Between Pathfinder and CoE/Bono Revision 2

The enclosed is a list of the differences between the "pathfinder" and CoE/Bono versions of FC's manifesto. The pathfinder version is riddled with errors ranging from spelling and punctuation to transpositions, repetitions, and serious omissions.

Obviously the Washington Post version was not perfect either; their omission of paragraph 116 is well known, but there were other less obvious errors, and we have marked these in our correction list with the symbol "*POSTERROR*".

The only contentious point is the five instances of the word "leftish" in the Post version. Some versions have corrected this to "leftist" while others have not. It seems to us that there should be an emphasis on readability and consistency as well as accuracy; in view of the fact that the manifesto uses both "leftish" and "leftist" interchangeably, even in the same sentence, we have decided to view the usage as a typographical error, rather than a stylistic eccentricity.
