If Western Civilizaiton were a Person... And other Political Thoughts

Granted: This analogy may have it's flaws;
But if our culture, or civilization were a physical, biological being,
What part of it would be The Government?


i think that the government should most properly be thought of as The Spleen.
The Spleen is the one organ that helps the other gastrointestinal organs to do their jobs,
While at the same time, If it were removed, The organism would survive, but do so less efficiently.
The Government of any Civilization should not define that civilization in any way,
But instead; Be it's spleen, and just help it to get things done...

Gay Marriage
The Government should get out of the marriage business.
Marriages should be defined and authorized by religions, and once one is established, the government, if it chooses to do so, may be allowed to establish tax brackets around it.
Other institutions, such as hospitals & insurance companies may be allowed to make up whatever rules they want, and let the free market decide if those policies are fair & equatable.

Everyone should be working to make Abortions as rare as possible—
Women should have the right to choose to have an abortion, and choose not to need or have one.

Policing the World
Local Nations should police their own regions & determine if their social policies adhere to whatever they define as human rights.
It should also be possible and easy for anyone to move from one country that they would choose not to live in, to any other country that they would prefer to live in.
If one country finds that they are being depleted of their population, while a neighboring nation is absorbing their citizens, then the boarders will be moved to accommodate the reduction of one population and the expansion of the other.

Weapons of Mass Destruction
Every country should have at least 12 nuclear bombs.
Those with too many, will redistribute those that they have to lesser endowed nations.
