So, a minister just "recognizes" an action, which is an action that
doesn't do anything? That feels kind of... weird. Can the
meta-minister meta-recognize a recognize action?

This whole prop just feels odd to me, but I can't quite put my finger
on it. It just seems like ministers ought to just be updating displays
to reflect the state of the game, and not *doing* things... maybe
ministerial duties that require *doing* things should be limited to
only one person, or should have some responsibilities just for the
minister that's been in that position longest, or something?

Maybe the ministries of Law and Change are very different from the
ministries of Death and Housing.

Or maybe this prop is just fine. I just don't know.
