If this had happened a few thousand years ago it would have been impossible to support that many kids, so I'm positive all of the kids except one would have been human-sacrificed to whatever pagan god was believed in. You know - rolling the kids into the fire in Moloch's stone belly.
These days, however....it'd be leftists wanting to off these kids. After all, they act as if abortion is a sacrament and now they're calling for the euthanasia of the old, the sick and the deformed. And if we have too many newborns? Well, call it post-abortion.
The value of children would drop tremendously due to oversupply. Leftists could use that as an excuse to cull tem - "overpopulation," you know.
Leftists ultimately desire the destruction of everything, so thank God women don't have that many kids.

What Gilligan found, in every case, was that the perpetrators suffered from unbearable feelings of humiliation, which they attempted to erase by killing people. He found many of them had fantasies of going out in what they considered "a blaze of glory," taking as many people with them as they could.
He said if you wanted to understand why people murdered, then look at the story of Cain and Abel. Feelings of humiliation followed by revenge. Murder.
As for trying to shove these people in boxes of "Beta rage" and "Omega rage," go right ahead. You're wasting your time, and you'll never understand why this guy did what he did.
You're better off understanding what Hubris is (the Greeks considered it a form of grandiose insanity, in which the sufferer cannot tell the difference between right and wrong). The Bible calls it Pride. And what follows them? Nemesis...destruction.

I knew nothing about white-collar until I graduated college, and when I found out about it I was not impressed. Jobs weren't really about what you know, but who you knew. Connections. The Old Boy's Network really does exist.
I couldn't stand the politics and backstabbing. A lot of these people were not adults but children.
You didn't even get promotions based on competence. It was on who liked you. It was astonishing.
I found first-rate people hire first-raters. Most of the bosses I worked for were second-raters, who hired third-raters, who hired fourth-raters. I have seen catastrophes because of this.
I would never hire an MBA. My experience has been many aren't even worthless. They're dangerous.
Bill Gates dropped out of college, as did Stephen Jobs. Henry Ford was an auto mechanic. Andrew Carnegie didn't go to college, either.
To this day I still get along better with blue-collar men. And don't think they're stupid. They're not, not even close.
Many college degrees are worthless. Education degrees? Ugh.
If I had my way, people would start at the bottom and work their way up, like Jimmy Olson, cub reporter (my father started out as a cub carpenter).
I cannot recommend college anymore, unless it's a real degree like engineering. You're better off getting a six-month certification in computers or being an auto mechanic or a plumber. The days of getting a degree and a good job and working your way up? They've been gone for a long time.
I've said this before; wages stopped going up in January, 1974. This means you're on your own. And believe me, that's not such a bad thing, because it means you're free to do as you please. For good or bad.
These people don't even know what Omegas are. I've mentioned I was raised with some really Bad Boys, not the pretend ones of the Manosphere. We called them what they were - white trash. They dropped out of high school or barely graduated, made their living at crime (especially selling drugs), were drug abusers and alcoholics. They were in an out of prison. They were generally murdered or died of drug overdoses. The women they got were trash like themselves and they were never "Alphas," even though they were Bad Boys. That's another Manosphere hallucination, that these lowlifes are Alphas and get all the women.
Sometimes I hear them referred to a Dalits, a word out of India which refers to their version of white trash, even if they aren't white.
These people are the scourge of society.

One thing I noticed about them is that none of them were all that smart, yet, paradoxically, they were arrogant. They thought they were smarter than others, that they could get away with anything, and they would never get caught.
I knew one guy who thought he could consistently rip off people on drug deals. Stupid? Yes. Also arrogant. He ended up dead and dumped in the stockyards in hope the pigs would eat him and leave no evidence.
Another thought he could go after any women who took his fancy. He ended up blown off his Harley. The shooter got life in prison.
I've seen this stupidity and arrogance over and over and over. The ancient Greeks called it hubris and the Bible refers to it as Pride. Hubris as in "followed by Nemesis." The same applies to that Biblical Pride.
All of these guys, to use Manosphere terms, were "insanely confident." Notice the "insanely" part. That's what they were. Insane - and now dead or in prison.
The opposite of that Hubris/Pride is humility, as the Greek concept of Sophrosyne, which means to know your strengths and weaknesses. Because, after all, no one is perfect. In fact, not even close, for all of us.

Yet it's even worse.
Later in the myth it's stated that Eve's desire "shall be for her husband." What does that mean?
Here I'll mention there are old sayings to the effect that not only are all translators liars, but they are actually traitors.
That comment has been interpreted to mean woman's desire shall be for home, husband and children, and that's true. It's been interpreted to mean women want to rule men, and that is often true, too.
It's been interpreted to mean women want everything men have - and that's true, too.
Let's apply the aforementioned envy to this comment. Out of envy women want everything men already have - then they end up destroying it. That want what men have, and if they can't have it, they'll destroy it. That's what envy does - "If I can't have it and enjoy it, then neither can you or anyone else."
To be precise, only leftist women are like this. After that, leftism is based on destroying everything, and since feminism is leftist, it wants to destroy men. In fact, everything, in the vain hope something better will arise from the ashes. That will never happen.
It's also why leftists - and feminists - are for all practical purposes insane.
Women are the ones who brought evil into the world. How did they do it? Because men are weak and they let women manipulate them into doing it.

The Manosphere is in many ways the mirror image of feminism, and in many ways uses the same tactics.
There are other signs. This article illustrates some of them. It's from CNsNews and was written by Penny Starr.
Calling it “The Great Crossover,” a report by academics and social activists shows that for the first time in history the median age of American women having babies is lower than the median age of marriage – 25.7 and 26.5, respectively.
These “dramatic changes in childbearing,” the report states, results in dramatic statistics about American children. Among them, 48 percent of first births are by unwed mothers, and by age 30 two-thirds of American women have had a child, typically out of wedlock.
Kay Hymowitz, an author of the report and a William E. Simon Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, said at an event to release the report on Wednesday at the Brookings Institution, that it reflects how the view of what marriage is about has changed.
This includes young adults who say marriage and children “are two separate things,” Hymowitz said.
The overall consensus of the report, with data in part gleaned from the U.S. Census Bureau is that Americans are postponing marriage to their late 20s and 30s, putting that separation in place.
“Culturally, young adults have increasingly come to see marriage as a ‘capstone’ rather than a ‘cornerstone’ – that is, something they do after they have all their ducks in a row, rather than a foundation for launching into adulthood and parenthood,” the report states.
The report cites two reasons – middle class American men having difficulty finding stable employment that allows them to support a family and “a less understood” reason about the disconnect between marriage and childbearing.
The report states that the “good news” of delayed marriage is that women can more easily have successful careers, and research shows that divorce rates are lower for later marriages.
The “troubling” new trend, the report states, is “The Great Crossover” where delayed marriage does not necessarily mean delayed motherhood.
The report, compiled by The National Marriage Project at University of Virginia, The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy and The Relate Institute, also examines why the “private” decision to become a parent ahead of a marriage commitment – when done by such a large a portion of the population – has consequences for society at large.
“Researchers now view family instability as one of the greatest risks to children’s well being,” the report states. “Yet unmarried adults, including single 20-somethings who make up about half of unmarried parents, are by definition unsettled.
Further, the report states: “Most researchers agree that on average, whether because of instability or absent fathers or both, children of unmarried mothers have poorer outcomes than children growing up with their married parents.”
While a panel discussion on the report included some commentary on how religious beliefs have influenced the institution of marriage and Americans’ view of it, the report is void of any connection between morality and marriage trends and does not mention religion, churches or God.
Patrick Fagan, senior fellow and director of the Marriage and Religion Research Institute at the Family Research Council, told CNSNews.com that the prevailing social ethos in today’s culture that “anything goes” results in a disconnect between this kind of data and its moral implications.
“The social science data reflects the reality,” Fagan said. “So we have a contrast between the reality and the moral discourse about the reality.
“We can look at the numbers, but we can’t discuss the principles behind them,” Fagan said. “Even though they may be glaring at us, we cannot talk about them.”
The report concludes that “too many young adults are drifting unintentionally into parenthood before they have a plan or a partner who enable them to give their children the life and family they deserve,” but it stops sort of universal support for marriage.
“To be clear,” the final paragraph of the report states, “as noted above, we believe that marriage is not for everyone, be they 20-something or some other age.
“We recognize that not all parents can or should get married,” the report states, while adding that the “decoupling” of marriage and childbearing is “deeply worrisome.”
The solution? More government programs “to help 20-something men and women figure out new ways to put the baby carriage after marriage.”
“Government is incompetent in social policy,” Fagan said. “That is very clear.
“The competence lies within the family, within the church and within the school,” Fagan said. “They are the three people-forming institutions.”
