Doctors Within Borders

Russia has a "chief pulmonologist". What an interesting idea; maybe it's a holdover from communism. Every country should have a set of chiefs in charge of the collective organs -- a chief cardiologist, a chief neurologist, a chief gastroenterologist, dedicated to making sure the country is breathing, pumping, thinking, and digesting properly.

Then the next logical step would be this proposal to build cities in biomorphic shapes:

Once it's the idea is established that our communities, cities, and nations are living systems in their own right, we can become Odonians and establish an anarcho-communist society with a healthy collective metabolism and nervous system.
