Have you nothing original to offer at all?
"As a madman shakes a dead geranium" thus Prof. AbuKhalil, professor of political science at California State University, Stanislaus and visiting professor at UC, Berkeley, rends his cloths, beats his chest and tears his hair in despair.

Moved by Angry Arab's plea, I thought I might enlighten him by finding some answers. There is a long and incomplete list at the wikipedia entry. Go look.
Though not an analogy, AA's very question made me recall this Monty Python's episode.
"Civilization is not self-supporting. It is artificial. If you are not prepared to concern yourself with the upholding of civilization -- you are done." (Ortega y Gasset)
