Depolitics

Replace the Names of politicians with random strings of characters as generated on depolitics.org.

Motivation

A politician should be no one.

No one should get into politics.

The first step towards a politics of no one is to make the Name irrelevant.

Appliance

depolitics.org allows one to check the names already entered into the database and to suggest new entries of politicians in need of a depolitical IS, an Identification String (e.g. from "George Washington" to "sflf6ctg").

The browser extension, Chrome, replaces the politician names read on the web page with the Identification String in the database.
