- Pancasila, as a nation foundation of Indonesia, is well known throughout the country. In order to know Pancasila in detail, it is significant toidentify the founder of Pancasila, Soekarno, the first president of Indonesia. This paper is aimed to demystify Soekarno's speech that marked the birth of the five basic principles, Pancasila. Considering that speech is a kind of discourse in general, Foucauldian method is employed to analyze it. The analysis covers the context, surface of text, rhetorical means, and the ideological statement lying in the speech. The result of analysis reveals that through Pancasila, Soekarno wanted to spread the main spirit of gotong rojong which can be viewed as spirit to work together with everyone no matter who to gain justice, equality, and fairness. Soekarno believed that justice, equality, and fairness can be attained through the principles of socio- nationalism, socio democracy, and belief in God. If the socio- nationalism, socio democracy, and belief in God can work well so the unity for better Indonesia can be achieved.
