The manifesto is a set of instructions that try to reimagine the agencies that determine a war, as if we were looking at it from an individual perspective.
What if each leader/government/group had to follow these instructions before a war could begin. What if we each had to go through this process before we began a battle of any sort.
It is a call to reconsider motives, take time by delaying and take responsibility for every stage of our actions. The act of making ones own armour becomes the main focus for this project.
