Exploration 7 Dillon Quigley
In chapter 6 i noted on page 179 that they stated that one key rhetorical actions that manifestos perform is to declare new identities. That is true in the First things first 2000 manifesto. The main purpose of the manifesto is to declare their new identities that they will no longer waste their skills on only commercial and advertisements. They do not want to be part of the molding of people on how they think, speak, feel, respond and interact. The evidence of this is they state " to some extent we are all helping draft a reductive and immeasurably harmful code of public discourse". That quote is also the manifestos best writing it states the point in a way that even if you have no idea what they are talking about with design you can understand what they feel they are doing and what is wrong with it.
