The whole social contract thing was only supposed to be a metaphor anyway.

That said, maybe it would be a good idea if people actually had to sign something upon reaching adulthood. The ones who don't can then have a short holiday at the Guantanamo Resort and Spa where they learn the real meaning of tyranny, and maybe some of the ones who do sign it might take a more active interest in making sure that the government holds up their end of the deal too.

Making natural born citizens have to pass the same tests that immigrants do before getting their passport, driving licence, tax number, etc. might not be a bad idea too.
