Yo mango

November 11, 2014

This group presents the dichotomy of fiction versus reality in society's frustrations. Yomango, slang for I steal in Spanish, is a movement that uses shoplifting to disrupt and rebel against the commercial system. Beautifultrouble.org states that “stealing (labor, time, ideas, lives) is what transnationals do. What Yomango does is ethical shoplifting: returning to the people what the transnationals have stolen.” Society fondly idealizes Robin Hood, a thief robbing for the greater good. Should we draw a line between legendary pictures and current groups, although both affect their communities? The audience likes Robin Hood because he is so fictionalized, so how accepting can we be if a group puts the same ideals into action?
