So, what about a drivers license, or a passport, or your IRS/tax forms?  Or if you need medial attention, or get a speeding ticket, or want to apply for a loan, or a bank account?

In NH, there's a specific check-box to opt-out of having your SSN attached to your driver's license.  Can't imagine why I'd want a passport, or to deal with the IRS (I live quite simply, so my income is below the filing threshold).  Not sure why I'd even possibly need an SSN to get medical attention - usually, a number really won't treat some medical problem, so it's better to use a doctor for that.  Nor can I think of any reason why an SSN would be related to a speeding ticket.  I've gotten loans, and not needed an SSN.  But, I deal with real people, not banks, for such things.

You mention that you have a SSN, can you drop it or disconnect yourself from it?

There's no procedure to remove an SSN.  It's sort of like herpes - once you have it, you're stuck with it, so the best plan is not to get it in the first place.

You kids don't have one, will this effect them into the future in any way?

The SSA warns that they may, unfortunately, not be able to accurately track how much they "owe" you, if you don't get one.  I can't imagine how that matters.  If they run into some situation where they decide it's easier to have one, they can make that decision; we weren't about to saddle them with something that can't be un-done.

Exactly.  You can specifically opt-out of having it attached to your license, and there is quite obviously no requirement that it bear the same name that you currently use, despite the bureaucrat's attempt to tell Ian otherwise.

No, actually, it's not.  That's the form to cancel receiving Social Security payments.

I love this analogy. :)

It might if he is providing it as one of the formats to identify himself.

Here's an interesting theory, although I doubt it's true.

Valve is a corporation that operates as a government should; with the least possible intervention. They've got quite a history, actually, for those unfamiliar with them, I'd highly recommend checking it out. One of the founders, Gabe Newell, has done a lot of lectures and AMAs on a variety of topics. He's a sharp guy. Anyway, the main character of their first hit game was Gordon Freeman.
