It has been said that the only way to defeat an idea is with a better idea.
So here’s a contest open to all members and friends of BMG. We need a new slogan in 10 words or less to challenge Trump’s: ” Make America Great Again.” We throw down the gauntlet today to do justice to our sacred Declaration of Independence in common cause against tyranny everywhere.
Our search was inspired by the words of David McCullough regarding Lincoln, FDR and JFK’s ability to find idioms that reached ordinary non-college educated people and elevate them to think higher about their country. ( As well as by Dermot Shea, the first head of the Massachusetts Consumer’s Council under Governor Chubb Peabody.)
So come on BMGr’s ! There’s more to progress than policy. There’s down in the soil small-‘d’ democratic politics to contend with as well. Can we collectively come up with a slogan that steals folks back from the alt-right before they slip into their hands ?
