PROMISCUITY AND MARKETS
Promiscuity breaks the compromise between male and female reproductive strategies and undermines the necessity of the family as the first organization (production of generations), in the hierarchy of cooperative organizations.
The French and Italians solve the problem through the sacredness of the family and ‘graceful philandering’ by both genders.
Whether you adopt the zero tolerance of the anglos or the high tolerance of the french, is a choice of higher or lower stress.
When we think of ourselves as equal rather than opposites that are compatible, and adopt individualism rather than compromise, we achieve in the intergenerational social order, what we achieve in the socialist economy: an inability to calculate and cooperate, and a destruction of the intergenerational means of production.
