Tribalistic polygamy in all it’s many forms, and it’s inherent elitist exploitation of the young and vulnerable, is the source of most of the world’s woes, including international terrorism, gang warfare, street violence and even global poverty. Generations of catastrophic fathering – and/or lack of fathering – has resulted in our current fractured and dysfunctional world.
History has proven that cultures that practice exceptionalist monogamy – such as the Roman Empire, Europe during the Reformation, Elizabethan England, and America during World Wars I and II – achieve far more than cultures that have been undermined by forms of tribalistic polygamy.
Examples of Thriving Cultures
China and India are two of the most successful cultures in the world today in terms of economic growth and improving the quality of life for their citizens. It’s no accident that both nations have long practiced power monogamy. People there must marry for life. There’s no such things like divorce and infidelity is not tolerated.
In the ancient world, the original Israelites as described in the Old Testament exemplified the benefits of monogamy. Even though they were persecuted for centuries by everyone from the Egyptians to the Nazis, Jewish culture has continued to thrive to this day.
Christianity started valuing the power of monogamy, and the religion is widely credited with spreading monogamy and it’s inherent values of hard work, lifelong commitment to children, and self-discipline to cultures throughout the world.
Somewhere along the way, humanity lost its way. People began to be obsessed with sex as entertainment. As a result of this weakening of the collective will, monogamy and its benefits of peace, prosperity and a positive work ethic has been dismissed as a minor social phenomenon at best, or a passing fad at worst.
Need proof that this shift towards polygamy is undermining our essential humanness?
Just as the entire polygamous world embraced slavery in the past, some polygamous cultures are still engaging in human slavery in the 21st Century.
A Crisis in Fathering
In the wake of the rise of polygamy and the corresponding fall of monogamy as a legitimate way of life, there has been a catastrophic crisis in fathering. Without the values of fathering, the result is violence, lost prosperity, and poverty. And the ultimate result of a catastrophic crisis in fathering is the rise of modern terrorism.
Violence Causes Poverty
There are many who believe that violence is a result of poverty. But in reality, broken fathering is the cause of both violence and poverty. Gang warfare and violence in our streets is the result of the erosion of the father as a role model. Without this type of guidance, people can’t make the right decisions for themselves – and, as an extension, for their culture – and the result is a breakdown in peace, prosperity and growth as a culture.
Monogamy is the One and Only Answer
What the world needs today is the power and prosperity and peace of monogamy. By putting value on having one faithful spouse for life, our children can rise above the current state of violent dysfunction and embrace the underlying values that originally made our culture the strongest, most successful and most powerful society that ever existed in human history.
