A polyamorous society should not be considered progress, because it diminishes the ability of society to generate strong family units that are vital for raising well-adjusted and socially conscious children. A society of people beholden to their own base impulses is a society that does not teach children how to exercise discernment and self-control, but perhaps more vital, how to be committed. The benefit of monogamy to society is clear and demonstrated, while there is no clear benefit of polyamory, rather there is almost certainly a degradation of the social fabric and social constructs needed for raising kids. Polyamory might be the “New Sexual Revolution,” however, the author of this article assumes the original sexual revolution of the ’60s was a good thing; many believe it was destructive to society and was a major factor that led to the downfall of family values and increased divorce rates.
Also, the subtitle “There’s data to suggest they’re better at navigating sex and love” is 100% BS and is an extremely misleading statement based on nothing more than pseudo-science “studies” that are no more valid than the statements of a 2-year-old in regards to geopolitical policy.
