AMEXRAP NAME CHANGE – Proposal
Dear Party Members!
I would like to draw your attention to the fact that – at present – AMEXRAP’s English name is as follows:
Party for Anglosphere and Other Foreign Minorities, Their Fans, Beer Drinkers, or Supporters of Rational Thinking
However, the use of the word OR is exclusive in English (meaning EITHER/OR as opposed to AND/OR). For example, the sentence “He will drink beer, wine, or whisky” generally indicates that the person will drink only one of the three listed beverages. The choices are thus exclusive; he will have one, but then none of the others.
In contrast, the sentence “He will drink beer, wine, and/or whisky” indicates that although the person may drink any of the three listed beverages, the choices are not exclusive; the person may consume one, two, or even all three of the listed drinks.
Therefore I propose the following in the name of inclusiveness:
Party for Anglosphere and Other Foreign Minorities, Their Fans, Beer Drinkers, and/or Supporters of Rational Thinking
I think this fits in better with our party program of social inclusion.
This of course, will not alter the party acronym, which is based on the Hungarian title. Even if the proposed changes are accepted, the English acronym/initialism remains completely unpronounceable.
Perhaps we should just call the party BEERTHINK in English.
