The latest greatest fad is to sign your name to documents. Pledge, vow, promise to not do this and not do that. Pledge, vow, promise to do this and that. But is it just a fad or something more? Are people being conditioned to signing forms to pledge their allegiance to something or another?
In South Africa we have Unashamedly Ethical. A multi-faith movement that wants you to sign a form that you will uphold their prescribed morals and values. Once you have signed your details will be added to their database.

What will people be signing next?
