About This Page

This is my document archive. Here is where I keep certain documents which have either disappeared from the web entirely, such as Luca Oprea's "Fearless Humanism" manifesto, or have become difficult to locate in search resuts. The choice of what appears here is entirely personal, and is mostly meant to ease my task finding sources to which I often refer, or express ideas I need to cogitate over. Sometimes, I include material simply to curate it. Day one saw me grab, out of my own collection, nineteen documents which caught my eye. I have lots more, and many will find a home here eventually. Perhaps the entire set of multilateral treaties for which the United Nations is the repository?
