Also, the design doesn't protect the minimum space around the logo.

Yes, I would like to avoid setting up a bunch of new slogans all at the
same time.  At the same time, I realize that the alliteration ("f" at
the beginning of all the words) won't work outside English, for which I
apologize.  But the *ideas* are strong, so translating those words
directly would still be powerful, I think.

Part of the power of a slogan comes from using it consistently.  If
everyone makes their own, how do we tell the difference between the
unofficial ones and the official one?  Frankly, I'd rather see T-shirts
not reflect any slogan, just the branding (logo) and website.
