Sasha Nyemtsov is the man with the golden voice. He has been systematically translating written Code-related materials into dazzling audio recordings--impressing even the nastiest of carebears. Today's entry, the first part of the Manifesto II. For those less familiar with our history, the Manifesto II is a pre-Order forum post (which was written by yours truly and, like others, can be accessed via our Links page) that sets forth much of the New Order's philosophy. It is notable for predicting the barge buffs and other nerfs to highsec PvP. It is also the longest post anyone has ever made on EVE-O.
As you might expect, the entire Manifesto II cannot be recorded all at once; Sasha is only doing one part at a time. The first section is "The Accusation".
Watch out Bobbins! Veers Belvar has become the latest gadfly of the MinerBumping comments. He claims to support the Code, but is adamantly opposed to suicide ganking. (General Belv, seen below, is his alt.)
The New Order is as open and welcoming a community as any in EVE. Recently, Agents of the New Order including loyalanon and others invited Veers to join them on TeamSpeak for a polite exchange of ideas. The question of the day: What would Veers do if he were given decision-making power, rather than simply posting comments? Veers took the opportunity to express his vision of a "moderate" New Order. Veers criticized today's Agents for adhering to an extreme interpretation of the Code that condones violence and distorts the original, peaceful Code taught and practiced by the Saviour.
This recording is a long one, and its continuation is found here.
Though there can be only one outcome, these kinds of conversations are healthy because they implicitly accept the premise that the Code is the law of highsec and must be obeyed. That is a lesson all the rebels of highsec would do well to learn.
