Our species came very close to losing the most important documents in human history. I’m talking about the writings of Malaclypse the Younger, the founder of the most important religion in human history, Discordianism. Fortunately disaster has been averted and these writings were not only saved but posted online:
Groucho Gandhi writes, “‘Crackpot Historian’ Adam Gorightly (the current Keeper of the Sacred Chao) saved the archives of Discordian co-founder Greg “Malaclypse the Younger” Hill from the literal dustbin of history by swooping up the Hill archives as they were about to be tossed in the dumpster. Srsly!
“Why is this important? Greg Hill (thru Discordianism) created the first proto-zine, The Principia Discordia, and the precursor to the Creative Commons licensing scheme, first known as KopyLeft, All Rites Reversed. Now Adam Gorightly is taking the Discordian Archives and releasing them.”
These works are graciously posted on Historia Discordia. As a Discordian Pope I urge you to go forth and read. Or don’t. Whatever you do it’s cool.
