The Nametag Manifesto -- Chapter 10: The End of Cultural Barriers

[ View the infographic! ]

"Everyone should wear nametags, all the time, everywhere, forever.”

That’s my thesis, philosophy, dangerous idea and theory of the universe.

My name is Scott, and I’ve been wearing a nametag for past four thousand days.

And after traveling to hundreds of cities, a dozen countries, four continents, meeting tens of thousands of people, constant experimentation and observation, building a enterprise and writing a dozen books in the process, I believe, with all my heart, that the societal implications of wearing nametags could change everything.

This is my manifesto: 

10. The End of Cultural Barriers.
If everybody wears nametags, we all speak the same language. 

It’s a passport. A guest pass that makes us welcomed everywhere. With a nametag, we’re friends with everybody everywhere, all the time, forever. Especially when you realize that everybody is the same everywhere, all the time, forever. 

This enables a positive, personal and memorable experience with people of different cultures, thus crushing stereotypes and assumptions thereof. Ultimately, nametags build bridges to people who don’t speak your language. 

It’s a symbol of peace, gesture of hospitality and a translator in the global language of humanity. It proves that we all one, we’re all in this together and we’re all the same.

If everybody wears nametags, no more unnecessary wars, no more immigration laws and no more animosity.
