1st MANIFEST OF FOOLS
Fools of the world – Become what you are!
“Like Dandelions we are strong and we are many. We operate worldwide and spread on the winds of the world. Fellow Fools, I urge you; Join us and start spreading the seeds.”
OUR DUTY AS FOOLS OF THE WORLD
People often ask “What’s your program?” What program? Fuck program, we are Fools. We do not have one set of values, norms or meanings; rather we attach ourselves to existing worldviews and turn them upside-down, inside-out or backwards.
We are here to attack the taken-for-granted aspects of daily routines. To lift the veil of authority and unmask the unpleasant aspects of power. To constantly question perceptions of wisdom, truth and other abstractions which rule our lives. We are here to turn spectators into actors.
PERSONAL QUALITIES OF THE REVOLUTIONARY FOOL
You might hesitate “Am I foolish enough, powerfool enough, to become a revolutionary force?” Yes you are! An Open Mind, Courage and Initiative is all it takes to become a genuine revolutionary fool – and these are personal qualities which lie inherent in every single one of us.
Openmindedness, imagination and creativity is the very core of our existence as Fools. But it also takes Courage to make a fool of your self, and the revolutionary fool must always bear in mind that it is better to err acting, than to do nothing for fear of making a mistake. Thus Initiative is an indespensible quality. The revolutionary fool cannot wait for instructions. His duty is to act and to find adequate solutions for each obstacle he faces. Without an Open Mind, Courage and Initiative there will be no Dandelion Revolution.
We will keep on growing and we will not return to business as usual. We can never be satisfied as long as we only get more of the same. Challenge the routines, challenge the truths, challenge the way to ride your bike, challenge the world to become the fool you are. The number of your foolish acts, will be the measure of your devotion. When we act; more fools will act. When we march; more fools will follow. In the future there will be no classes or castes, just fools.
Those who are foolish enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do. Let’s start fooling around! Just let go, and start exploring life to its fooliest!
