Just wanted to post our manifesto.
Whereas the world is full of charlatans and manipulators whose sole existence is to deceive us with lies and falsehoods masquerading as truth and experience;
Whereas these beguilers have used all manner of deception and fakery, pseudo-science and conniving to entrap us;
Whereas as all governments, political bodies and economic institutions across the planet have colluded with these prevaricators to further their own hegemonic agendas;
Whereas the chains they have enslaved our minds, bodies and desires, that choke with the grip of death, and have left us blind to the truth and blinded by the sheen of their counterfeit gold;
We hereby declare:
We will no longer acquiesce to the imagery that is delivered to us via any medium that does not allow for our own personal experience to be involved; we are the wolves in the water waiting to attack and devour anything that attempts such crossing;
We will take responsibility to decode and understand any media that attempts to manipulate our emotions, desires or convictions in an effort to further an agenda that neither represents or depicts us as a fully realized human being; we are the tip of the spear, the shaft, and its feathered fletching that will aim precisely to destroy any such attempts;
We will only accept facts that we can prove to be such: We will DE-right the rightist, DE-left the leftists, DE-up the uppest, and DE-down the downest; we will DE-radicalize the radicals, DE-conserve the conservatives and DE-construct the attempt of any other agency that attempts such deception.
We will trust in ourselves and our own experiences when we engage the world through media. And if we have no experience we will remain neutral until sufficient knowledge has been gained.
We will not fear the world or those who inhabit it, but only those who wish to create within us a unnatural fear, that they may further their own dastardly agenda.
We have only one DE-mand: that all nations of the world teach all students of the world… this one little program called Photoshop… So that they can learn the alchemistic arts of subterfuge and prestidigitation; that they can then DEcode any picture or DE-viral any video that seeks to subjugate them to an event that they never experienced in an attempt to manipulate them emotionally that they would blindly follow a cause or buy a product. We want them to become the gatekeepers to their soul so that no media shall enter unto them that has not been decoded.
We are DE-PHOTO-SHOP: the enemy of the world, but the savior of tomorrow.
Stand with Jinbing and me as we fight this evil that is no longer a specter haunting us from the recesses, but is instead, a full blown demonic entity attacking in a full frontal assault. Now is not the time to be afraid or fearful of repercussions, because we are living with the repercussions of the past generations that refused to fight: The baby boomers, now living with false memories of the bucolic fifties when women and blacks knew their places and nobody else existed, or generation X, Y and Z millennials whose only contribution was their birth. Or the current generation of hipsters who wear fashionable working man’s clothing in an ironically asinine attempt at social/economic class irony. Those generations are over. Now there will only be one: the DECODEration Generation.
How we will do this? We begin simply with a website, De-photo-shop. We, you, us, will decode and de-viral any current photos or campaigns that have taken on significant interest. They will then become archived in our ever increasing database. As time passes it will become a repository for a historical database of media for the DECODEration Generation to access and further build upon. We are all in this together. And that is how it begins.
