from the government/organized crime/a foreign power/your ex. Where do you go, what do you do for a living, what name do you take.? Do you have the necessary survival skills to make it? Who do you take along?
You have $5000 in your pocket, but you need a new ID.
No, I am not stealing your great ideas. This again relates to an academic article on sixties radicals on the run, but need not be relevant to that particular experience. Are you any more inventive than they were? Will you end up serving a long sentence for the cop who died in your explosion/ for the innocent bystander dead on the street. Return with us now to the thrilling days of yesteryear. Or last year. Or yesterday. What would you do? Where would you go?

Clearly the sixties radicals had it easy compared to today. I wonder if there is any area where it is easier now. Perhaps we have more knowledge of other cultures, of what we need to survive. Osama Bin Laden clearly has something going for him in his years on the run. Unless he is long dead and the information is not judged to be helpful to the cause.
Not having to worry about technology would have made things easier, but it would still be tough. Always having to worry that your story is consistent, that you answer to the right name, never contacting people from your old life. It really is a small world-what if someone you used to know sees you someday-how many times do you run into someone you know while you're on vacation?

I think our openness to other cultures would help us, definitely. And if Osama's already dead and the government knows it, there's no way they're ever going to tell us.
this is a little off-topic, but i was once on a message board where it was discovered that one person had 30 identities. she used a spread sheet to keep them all straight.
I need one to keep my sole identity straight. Can you imagine?
Someone had a little too much time on their hands.
