“ORIGINALITY IS FREEDOM” The Iquitment Manifesto Zig when they zag, and zag when they zig. This is the mentality for which Iquitment was founded upon: being yourself.
Do you. Don’t worry about what they’re doing or what they’re thinking. The best way to be original is to do what you want. Although, there are obvious repercussions: you might get misunderstood, you might get outed, you might even get busted. The important thing is
don’t be discouraged. You have to be dedicated if you ever truly want to be original, but the concept of being a complete original is a pretty obscure scenario.
Some people don’t want to be an anomaly. So for all of us free thinkers, who respect being different & appreciate alternate opinions, but don’t want to live on the outskirts of society,
there is a middle ground. We can exist in a society which demands homogenization and offset it in small incriments by showcasing what defines us. We can redefine our public property, reinterperate our individuality,
support our artists & zag when they zig. Do you & support those who are doing likewise.
