"Classical liberalism is like a baby chimp. It is all kind of cute and funny. It presents some challenges but leaves you feeling good. But the chimp grows up to a wild animal that will tear off your face and kill you or your neighbors."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
