Poly politics: talkin' 'bout a revolution?


  • Alan M. 5 years ago

    I'm beginning to think that fairly widespread understanding and acceptance of polys by mainstream society is coming faster than I expected. I used to think it would be 50+ years. Now I'm guessing 10 or 20.

    Legal group marriage, however, will be the very last event in this process. I doubt we'll see it in our lifetime.

    Wow, " polyamory [...] might be the next, more grown-up step in the struggle against industrial-capitalist values"? That is the most absurd thing I've heard. Consider the Boston-area polys. Nearly every one of them capitalist yuppie software/tech dorks. They don't want to rebel against capitalist values any more than Santa Claus wants to rebel against Christmas. Remember, they have iphones to buy!

    Yes, well, the Adbusters article is pretty darned silly in any case. But remember that Boston-area polys aren't the only polyamorous people in the world. Resource-sharing and other more communal styles of living continue to be popular among polys including those living in co-housing communities like Mosaic Commons, and many poly people who continue to live in the city also tend to be into food co-ops, community gardening, and going off the grid.
