In the United States Constitution, the Founding Fathers took great care with the inclusion and exclusion of various topics. Many aspects of what defines America are explicitly enumerated.
And many other aspects were purposely avoided. For instance, they made no effort whatsoever to define a national language.
Standing on avant-garde political terra firma of the times, these colonial guerrillas forged a joie de vivre mentality that gave birth to a nation. The omission of declaring a national language was, de facto, evidence of their compos mentis and a sense of Realpolitik.
Then again, maybe this exclusion was per se, a faux pas?
George Washington probably would have said, “C’est la vie!”
These days, addressing this subject requires a commanding social presence to induce people to listen.
After all, the English language is the “real thing.”
It is therefore fitting that the manufacturer of fizzy sugar water would, during the Super Bowl, kick off with this political football.
