The People's Voice is a manifesto written by Daisy Fitzroy to serve as a directive to members and those wishing to join the ranks of the Vox Populi.[1] It contains material reflecting her bitter hatred towards Comstock and The Founders by a "general undermining of authority of government, Prophet and natural law."

The red and gold leather-bound book can found scattered on the ground in various areas of Columbia, most notably Shantytown.

ExcerptsEdit

Peoplesvoice
  • Truth will out all lies in the end.[2]
  • You had their knife in your back since the day you were born…[1]
  • It falls on us, since those before did so little… They bowed their heads and took the lash. Well, we'll take it no longer…[1]
  • They say I foment violence… But that's a lie. I only ask you react to it. Only a fool endures an unjust lash…[1]
  • You think that the rich man, the white man fought alone in Peking? No... You were there too, knee-deep in the blood of men who ought've been our brothers…[1]
  • Our sole objective is for The People to be heard… It's not our fault they've been angry so long…[1]
  • "Such is the fate of all hoarders and exploiters. Those who had all, will have nothing. Those who idled, shall toil."[3]

The Psychology of Dissent: Interviews with the Anarchist Daisy FitzroyEdit

Main article: BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt

In his first formal interview with the captured Daisy Fitzroy on May 9th, 1909, Dr.Francis Pinchot attempts to elicit a response by reading aloud passages from the book.

Not hearing a reply about when Fitzroy first identified herself as an anarchist, Pinchot scans the pages of the book to see if it offers an explanation. Failing to find anything to that effect, he continues reciting phrases and offering haughty explanations and rhetorical questions.

Fitzroy only speaks after Pinchot sighs, "I merely wish to understand."

During their last interview on May 13th and aware of her forthcoming surgical procedure, Fitzroy quotes a passage from the manifesto. She intimates that Pinchot feels remorse at letting the experimental brain operation go through.

After taking in her astonishing scores on his own self-designed intelligence tests, he realizes how his faith in the Founders had clouded his judgement regarding the superiority of the White male. He admits to reading the entire book and mourns the pending loss and waste of the "beautiful mind" of Fitzroy.
