I think it's going to be nearly impossible to come up with one slogan
that works across the world and isn't so completely generalized and/or
incomprehensible (make up your own words) to make any kind of impact to
anybody in any language.

So again I ask, what is so terrible if English printed stuff uses
'Freedom is a Feature' and things printed in other languages use a
slogan that is suitable for that language?  I would hope and expect
that the English speaking constituents wouldn't block a slogan in
another language just because it may translate poorly to English, so I
expect the return.
