“In everything you see me do, my vocations or avocations, I view things through this lens of being The Anti-Socialist.” I make that concluding soundbite during my speech, The Anti-Socialist.
Although the speech is not specifically about polygamy, it succinctly provides background-insight into why I so passionately advocate for the unfettered Constitutional freedom of unrelated consenting adults to choose polygamy if they would so consider.
Incentive and choice are essential elements for the betterment of humanity – both for individuals and for larger society as a whole. Socialism removes incentive and interferes with choice. The result is mediocrity due to fewer “good” options remaining from which to choose.
Advocating for UCAP (unrelated consenting adult polygamy) is not about suggesting that everyone would, could, or even should choose polygamy. Not at all. Rather, the use of big government marriage control to forcefully impose OMOW (one man one woman) is what I have identified as marital socialism. It effectively mandates a Karl Marx style of socialist cry, “One for each so that each might have one.”
The result of that marital socialism is that men have little incentive for self-improving to become better husbands. Women are left with choosing lesser men who had no incentive to try to be better. Because of these results from this unnatural and anti-free-market imposition of OMOW marriage control, society has consequently become what I call “the era of dumbed down males,” with marriage-phobic males and abandoned single moms.
As such, it is insanity to be criminalizing the men who would self-improve to become better husbands for the women to choose, and to thereby deny women those choices of better men.
Contrariwise, I rationally advocate for UCAP for the betterment of individuals and society. By abolishing marital socialism and returning to true Constitutional freedom, people will again have incentive and choice.
Even if most men still would not seek to be polygamous husbands themselves, all men would still have incentive to self-improvement. To wit, because women would thus have freedom to choose the truly better men (even when such men could already be proven-good husbands), the lesser men would immediately see their urgency to self-improve (else go without) if they wanted women to choose them at all. In the end, it would equilibrate anyway.
Yes, I am an Anti-Socialist because I genuinely care about people. Whether with work or hobbies, vocations or avocations, I care about the human spirit and society. In all things, I see and know that our betterment and self-improvement are only made possible with the human necessities of incentive and choice.
Hence, it is precisely because I view all things through the lens of being an Anti-Socialist that explains why I so passionately advocate for unrelated consenting adult polygamy.

No one likes to fail. Sometimes, failure can be downright painful – even devastating. Even so, as much as we human beings might try to hedge things to prevent failure, we must never eliminate it.
“We have to have failure to teach us to abandon foolishness.” I state this essential soundbite in my speech, The Anti-Socialist.
In the speech, I use an illustration of a fictional story of my playing a one-on-one basketball game with the legendary Michael Jordan. No doubt, in such a game, that basketball superstar would proverbially “wipe the floor” with me. The ending score would likely be 500-0. The lesson of the illustration is that I, as a non-athlete, need that failure to teach me to not think that I am any kind of “equal” with Michael Jordan’s basketball skills. It teaches me to abandon that foolishness so that I would instead go do something else at which I am good.
This is a fundamental lesson for all of humanity. Failure can teach us when we simply must stop wasting our time and effort trying something and to instead go do something else. It teaches us to re-direct our energy toward endeavors at which we can achieve excellence.
But socialism is a proverbial “backstop” that prevents the education from failure. More directly put, socialism is a foolishness-continuer – which is why socialism always leads to mediocrity. As it seeks to equalize outcomes, socialism utterly bounces the failure back as if it was a success. When everyone is “equal” in outcomes, people with lesser, mediocre, or no skills are deceptively misled into wrongly thinking that they are good enough to continue. Without that failure, there is no teacher to abandon foolishness so as to go do something else.
Absolutely, humanity fundamentally needs failure. That is why I am an Anti-Socialist.

I am an Anti-Socialist because I care about the fundamental requirements and needs of humanity.
“The truth is: humanity requires the hope of reward and failure. That’s right. We need both.” I declare this soundbite in my speech, The Anti-Socialist.
For as long as a person has the hope of reward, they will work hard to achieve something they value. With that hope of reward, a person will research what needs to be done, study it, learn it, practice it, develop it, improve it, try it, fail at it, correct it, re-try it, and perfect it. But when that hope of reward is not there even to begin with, or no longer exists, or is removed, a person will not have the inspiration to work as hard or even to try at all.
Likewise, humanity needs failure too. Lessons are gained though the process: attempt, failure, learn, correct, and re-attempt. Moreover, failure teaches a person when they are doing something that is not best suited for their individual skills. For an example, an excellent artist needs to fail at trying to being a basketball star in order to teach them to instead direct their efforts on being the excellent artist they actually are.
Socialism attempts to equalize outcomes. To do that, socialism removes the hope of reward and removes failure. And without these fundamental needs, human nature itself is ultimately crushed, making people to be living in hopelessness and learning mostly nothing.
Yes, humanity requires both the hope of reward and failure. That is why I am an Anti-Socialist.
