Adding to list?

EDITOR: When we get drawn into emotional and political vortices, it's usually helpful to ask the question: How do we become more civilized?

We used that criterion to abolish slavery (for the most part). We seem to be putting it to good effect in allowing our gay brothers and sisters the right to marital union.

I believe that putting capital punishment in our rear view mirror would raise our social conscience to a higher level.

Perhaps a few more safeguards to protect us from assault rifles? What else might we put on his list?
