(For those who do not know it, putting quotes around a word is the same as "sic." I keep forgetting how bad our schools are.)
I came to the conclusion years ago that only monogamy works to keep society from falling back into chaos.
Example: polygamous Saudi Arabia exports all its young, troublesome unmarried men to the rest of the world to wage jihad - to murder and destroy. And is the world paying for it! Saudi Arabia is such a weak country these men could easily overthrow it. It's an example of "Alphas" (tyrants) killing their competing "Omegas."
In the U.S., in one Mormon community the (YFZ Ranch,) when the boys reached 16 or 17 they were thrown out on their own so they wouldn't be competition for young women.
What these communities have in common is that they are totalitarian. They have to be, because that's the only way to enforce polygamy. Only a miniscule number of women would choose to be part of a harem, contrary to the delusions of Paper Alphas ("Betas" pretending to be "Alphas") such as Roissy ("Five minutes of Alpha is worth five years of Beta").
In fact, in all polygamous communities there will be an enormous excess of young unmarried men and young boys, so they must be gotten rid of, somehow. That includes killing them. And there is no way around this surplus.
Now for the other side of this coin, these "Omegas" will try to kill the "Alphas," which is why they must be gotten rid of. Three well-know examples in the U.S. are Charles J. Guiteau, who only killed one man (President James A. Garfield) and Seung-Hui Cho, who killed 32 people and wounded 17 others. There was also George Sodini, who didn't kill other men, but three women, then himself (Cho also killed himself and Guiteau was executed). What they are have in common is hate and unbearable feelings of humiliation. It's revenge.
I'd had people tell me polygamy is coming to the U.S. (which it is not) or that it is Christian (which it is not). In fact, it was Christianity which got rid of it.In fact, polygamy is pagan.
What is one of the main problems here is our own narcissism, that is, seeing people are things to be exploited. You might call it the Dark Triad. Those who are afflicted with this disease are incapable of love and are only interested in power, domination and control.
I do not see how anyone with a harem of women can love even one of them. I also don't see how any woman who is a member of that harem can love any man. This is what happens when narcissism and the lust for power and control reigns over all.
Any society that isn't monogamous is going to be at war with itself. There will be more murder, more rape, more kidnapping, more homosexuality, more child molestation, more gangs, more drug abuse, hell, probably more bestiality. And certainly more poverty and chaos. Based on its history, I don't see any way around that.
