- Because Thomas Jefferson was a slaveowner, the document he drafted, the Declaration of Independence (1776), should be declared null and void.
- Because at its foundation the "United States of America" was a slave country, it should be abolished.
- Because the USA's first president George Washington was a slaveowner, the city named after him should be abandoned.
If these steps are considered too drastic, then the USA; the Declaration of Independence; and Washington, D.C., should be renamed.
I propose that the renaming process be headed by the Yale academic, John Witt, a professor of law and history, who chaired a Committee to Establish Principles on Renaming at his distinguished university.
Question to the professor: Was the Party (sorry, I meant Kommittee) named in honor of George Orwell?
P.S. "Renames," humbly suggested by a non-member of the Kommittee:
- Declaration of Dependence
- Untied States of America
- Ash-ington (meant to suggest the imperial capital should be blown up by a nuclear attack)
