There is another problem with polygamy, the one that doesn't get as much play as the ESTABLISHED, HISTORICAL, FACT that polygamist societies have always been oppressive towards women. That other problem being all those men who don't have access to women because a few, powerful men have monopolized them. Polygamist societies are not only historically oppressive of women but they are also, historically, violent and war-torn. Part of the civilization-enhancing effect of marriage is that it gets men to settle down and turn their energy to productive use in providing for their families. ...

Nevertheless, we have not only the historical evidence of what a polygamous society looks like but also the biological evidence of the social structures among naturally polygamous animals.

One of the reasons we have cause to fear China right now is the destabilizing effect of a generation of young, military-age men, who, due to the distorted demographics of the one-child policy, have no hope of marrying.

Think seriously on this.

Having large numbers of unmarried men is a recipe for social chaos (again see America's inner cities for evidence). Thus the leaders of such societies turn that energy outward -- sending the unmarried men out to steal other men's women instead of attempting to overthrow the leaders to get their women.

Left-liberals, for all their claims to respect "Science", continually deny that biology is real when it comes to the effect of reproductive biology.

The progressive mindset is set. It believes that whatever it pursues at the moment must be progress. Think Progress is one of the groups that is convinced progress is achieved by the right people thinking the right thoughts. Or, the right people thinking the left thoughts. "We are the people we've been waiting for," said candidate Obama four years ago. Better to wait for Godot.

The president's re-election slogan is an expression of this mindset. Forward. Just that one word. It's not as bad perhaps as MSNBC's "Lean Forward." Imagine you're on a cliff, looking over into the vast chasm...
