    Society is more accurately described as a cyborg.

    I say it's like an organ. It attempts to digest whatever garbage is fed into it.

    (But I could be wrong about that. )

    No.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    Yes.


    ....There's also a network. I think that's a better model.
    We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore on Christ's behalf: 'Be reconciled to God!!'

    Organism. Machines may run self-diagnostics, but they're usually not self-correcting.
    I'm probably drive-by posting.

    On second thought, it's like a pipe organ. Hit the wrong keys and it makes a loud discordant noise. ...Or something like that.
