  •  I'm sorry what part of social harm (2+ / 0-)

    don't you get?

    The arab world has polygamy, and it's contributed to
    massive violence, instability and terrorism.

    The Rich Guys have 4 wives,  that means for every
    rich guy you have 3 poor guys with no chance of getting
    a wife. Ever.

    Say the top 10% have 4 wives,  the bottom 30% will never
    ever, ever have a wife.

    we have the same problem in socieites with female infanticide. (China and India).  

    India now has a 60/40 sex split ratio. China same way.

    When men think they will never ever ever have a wife, they become pretty desperate.

    there are things where individual choice leads to massive social harm.

      is utterly lost on you in your desire to control the sex lives of others.

      •  Society gets to prevent social harm (0+ / 0-)

        Say the Top 10% have 4 wives,
        the next 10% have 3 wives,
        the next 10% have 2 wives
        and the next 10% have one wife.

        that leaves the bottom 60% with no wife

        Do you think that's good for society?

        And how is this good for women?

        Wife number 4 for Mitt Romney?
        Do you think she has to compete with wife #1
        for resources?

        Stop blathering about freedom, and show me how
        this is a good thing for anyone other then rich men?
