Comment: Trying to make sense of the analogy...

(See in situ)


Trying to make sense of the analogy...

1)
Ruler, i.e. - person who makes rules = ruler, i.e. - measuring stick

2)
Protractor, i.e. - measuring tool to measure angles = "protractor", i.e. - leaders who set example, but not necessarily enforce rules

3) if men were angles, i.e. - if men were Angels = if men were angles, i.e. ...? what?...?

Are you trying to say men are straight lines?
Or is the analogy not supposed to completely hold up, just make the point about needing leaders who lead by example and not rulers who rule by force?

Is it totally over my head so far?

Or are you actually advocating for a min-archy?
