Sarcasm intended to add to realism of the Analogy:
Speech, human communication, written or verbal, is like p*ssing. It is a biological necessity, we all have to do it sometimes.
Done occasionally with “self-control”, you ensure that you don’t soil yourself.
And done properly, the byproduct can be useful, for purpose of fertilizing and growing ideas and knowledge for human consumption.
But “Democracy” has become a P*ssing Contest, where the contest rules encourage people to P*ss on others, within a country, and toward other countries.
Naturally, while the rules are unsaid on the point, human beings by instinct rather P*ss on someone else’s backyard than their own, for obvious reasons.
For some, it may also be clear that P*ssing on other human beings, is rude and unproductive. Human beings cannot be fertilized by P*ss. It only makes people angry.
But for others, the proponents/promoters of the P*ssing Contest, it has become a profitable game show, with trademarks.
Like all gameshows, however, there will be a time when the show gets dull, and the smell accumulates.

Uh….what? How is speaking like pissing? Speaking is not a biological necessity. In fact, as you may be aware, there are people who for physical reasons are completely unable to speak and yet they manage to lead happy, productive lives…
I see the point you’re making, but seriously, this is a pretty terrible metaphor. Also, putting a single asterisk into the word doesn’t somehow make “piss” safe for children or family-friendly. Why not either just type the word out or actually censor it (or just pick a different word).
“Speech, human communication, written or verbal, is like p*ssing.”
Your criticism means nothing to me, when you can’t READ.

Writing is not a “biological necessity” either. Nor is communication. It is a trait that’s been heavily favored for survival; humans that don’t communicate are far less likely to survive than those that do (or at least, that would have been true back in the day). That’s not the same as a “biological necessity” though.
Someone who doesn’t urinate is someone who is either dying of thirst or dying of some kind of kidney/liver failure. A person who doesn’t urinate will be dead within a month, probably way sooner. But one can live for years, decades or even an entire lifetime without communicating in any way at all. Look at those hermits who live on mountains in China and such. These days, it’s not common — and even if you want to live like a hermit, it’s getting more difficult — but biologically there is no imperative to communicate.
I can read; the problem is that you’re not good at writing.
I’m not going to bother to explain the concept of “metaphor” to you.
The problem is that you are proving that your degree is worthless.
