Latta, Tim ME PLURIBUS UNUM History,
Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
In ME PLURIBUS UNUM, we get a hilarious lecture-demonstration cum stump speech by the wanna-be Queen of the United States of America. In her negative attack campaign, she unwittingly makes the case for democracy as we know it, and shows us how lucky we are! As she argues that an absolute monarchy is so much easier than democracy (no questioning necessary, no thinking involved!) she points up the value of civic participation and involvement in our government. Her ironic criticisms of the American system cover the separation of powers, how laws are passed, taxes, and freedom of speech. At the end of her harangue, she demands a vote to end democracy in America so she can achieve her American Dream: to become queen of the greatest nation on earth. In the end she sees the paradox behind her dream. You can’t be queen of the greatest nation on earth if you take away everything that makes it great. It’s not Me pluribus unum, but E pluribus unum: out of many, one. Felicity Jones
