Re: Discussion of the Declaration of Unity ¶
The wording of the original document is awkward and makes it difficult to work out what intent/meaning the writers were looking for.
As would be expected, people read it and take it on face value. Some of the phrasing is specific (such as "the principle of reciprocity") and the origins of those phrasings might be missed by the casual reader, leading to misunderstanding and/or restatement of previously posted thoughts.
I found it helpful in reading the original declaration to realise that a lot of that specific phrasing can be found in the documents that the writers would be familiar with from their day to day work. Even though the English is not structured very well, knowledge of those documents might help make the intent/meaning of the original document a little clearer, which it is not at the moment.
by the way and off topic - I think you got the best of his work in HEX. well done :-D
