THE L.A.S.E.R.S. MANIFESTO To Every Man, Woman & Child… 1. We Want An End To The Glamorization Of Negativity In The Media. 2. We Want An End To Status Symbols Dictating Our Worth As Individuals. 3. We Want A Meaningful And Universal Education System. 4. We Want Substance In The Place Of Popularity. 5. We Will Not Compromise Who We Are To Be Accepted By The Crowd. 6. We Want The Invisible Walls That Separate By Wealth, Race & Class To Be Torn Down. 7. We Want To Think Our Own Thoughts. 8. We Will Be Responsible For Our Environment. 9. We Want Clarity & Truth From Our Elected Officials Or They Should Move Aside. 10. We Want Love Not Lies. 11. We Want An End To All Wars. Foreign & Domestic (Violence). 12. We Want An End To The Processed Culture Of Exploitation, Over-Consumption & Waste. 13. We Want Knowledge, Understanding & Peace. 14. WE WILL NOT LOSE BECAUSE WE ARE NOT LOSERS, WE ARE LASERS!!! Lasers are the opposite of losers. Lasers are shining beams of light that burn through the darkness of ignorance. Lasers shed light on injustice and inequality. Losers stand by and let things happen. Lasers act and shape their own destinies. Lasers find meaning and direction in the mysteries all around them. Lasers stand for love and compassion. Lasers stand for peace. Lasers stand for progression. Lasers are revolutionary. Lasers Are The Future. We’re Not Losers…We Are L.A.S.E.R.S.!!! Love Always Shines Every-time Remember 2 Smile! -LF http://www.weallscheme.com/2009/06/28/lupe-fiasco-lasers-manifesto/ =D

It's also a play on the word 'Losers' which Lupe takes to mean those who follow the crowd and do not actively and positively influence their environment. And as he attempted to do with songs like Shining Down and I'm Beaming before his studio compromise, it's also a symbol of light.

It's an acronym for Love Always Shines Everytime Remember 2 Smile.
