AT LAST! A Way to Overthrow the Government in Only 21 Years.

    UncleMorgan I like peeling bananas and (occasionally) people.

    It's funny how an idea can spring into a person's head fully developed in a single instant, even when their meds aren't balanced.

    Last Thursday night (as I was doing what I do every Thursday night) I had most singular thought.

    Rather than to take over the world, wouldn't it be more fun just to overthrow all the governments of the world?

    Every one of them.

    It can be done, in only 21 years--but I will need your help.

    All of you.

    We must all work together on this if we are to break the tyrannical bonds of...well...Tyranny!

    Starting tomorrow (which is Thursday) everyone should name every child they have, be it male or female....

    .....John Smith.

    Ah! The beauty of it!

    Do you see the stunning glory of this concept?

    Growing every year, an unstoppable avalanche of John Smiths, and a whole generation of them all coming of age as one...

    If the government--any government--cannot single a person out by name, how can they possibly control that person?

    How could the minions of government serve a warrant, or a draft notice, or write a traffic ticket? Or collect taxes?

    "John Smith, Officer? She lives next door..."

    And across the street.

    And in the apartment above.

    And he also lives on the corner.

    EVERY corner.


    The sirens are closer, now. I have to go.

    Lol a brilliant idea with a fatal flaw. most people on here are past the child bearing years. but I guess we could immediately implement your devious plan if we all change our names to John Smith ;). one caviot. .. I get to be Jane. I'm not changing my name to plain John. :D

    It kind of undermines the concept a bit, by nearly halving the government's citizen identification problem. Instead of gender differentiated first names...use a gender neutral name like Morgan. Baby Names 1000 » Baby Name Morgan and change the surname to Freeman. It would perturb TPTB to have a population of Freemans; and males, females, and trans gendered folk can all comfortably have the same first name: Tough on Morgan Freeman though. :(

    You are correct. it IS brilliant- uh

    .... I did it already.
    AGENT Smith- didn't work out so hot. (YOU may do better)
    - the experiment went awry...

    But it SHOULD "work".

    I'll handover my notes. You MAY be able to execute this better, given your fresh point of view.
    You ARE a bigger monkey than I, after all
