    So what?
    A policy doesn’t become good or bad simply based on how many countries it is instituted in. Same sex marriage takes place in even less countries than the above list, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad, and I would still support same sex marriage even if no country at all had it.

    • I find that rather a depressing view. Humanity is slowly learning how to be civilised – if you look at the number of countries who had same sex marriage twenty years ago you will see my point. However occasionally idiots try to drag us back into barbarism.

      In the UK at the moment such a group of idiots are trying to claim that the death penalty is commonplace, normal and acceptable. If we look at the world we see that clearly isn’t the case. Yes I firmly believe that even if I was in a minority of one I would be not insane but correct (HT Orwell) but even so, if comparative politics serves any purpose it is to help us avoid making the mistakes of our neighbours. If we look at where the death penalty is used and how it is used, we see that it is not a sure-fire recipe for modernisation.
