Maybe make old discourses new. Reestablishing old conversations isn’t going to work by itself. It’s like writing music in a style that’s been done to death. We know the style, we can ape the form, but the inspiration that produced the actual art at the time, what made it connect enough to motivate people enough to create a nation, is gone. We can include what we have from the time but we have to make it our own. We must find our own sources of inspiration, and if we want forge them together with the foundation of the US, then do that, and that will take us forward.
