Polygamy was banned in Athen long before christianity. Recent democracy is recent. I am thinking about athen democracy. That's predate christ.

It's legal in a sense that it's not a crime. People can do that openly. As for inherits, men can inherit to his biological children.

Sugar babies are already legal and that's as good as polygamy. You don't get sanctioned by the state but it's close.

This answer is precisely what I am looking for. Single males will simply vote to prohibit polygamy and hence polygamy and democracy don't mixed.

comment What historical conditions (culture, technology, events, etc.) contributed to China's current lead in population?
I think it's envy against the rich. In Europe, due to democracy, the poor, which are larger in number, rules. Those in power tend to produce more children. Deep inside all living things have strong instinct to reproduce. The dumber (IQ wise) and poorer a person, the more likely he follow his instinct and became more successful in the genepool. Also smarter females have lower effective fertility than dumber males in, and only in western civilization (or westernized civilization)

comment Was Rommel an Anti-Semite?
Actually all morality eventually have true practical purpose. The fact that there is something in it for me does not make it immoral. In fact, immoral acts often end up in lose lose situation which is hence, stupid. In buddhism, this is blured further into kusala vs akusala. Kusala means both good and wise (literally skillful), and akusala means the opposite.
