    The union of Choice?

    Since greed and selfishness considers neither the babies/ or welfare of small children( the innocent) in the moment of lust...



    There are a whole lot more arrangements but I could only fit 10, "consider the pro and cons of your poll choice"

    The Union of Anti-choice:

    Greed and selfishness considers not the babies/ or welfare of small children once they are born....

    (I can use BS rhetoric, too...)

    And to answer your poll - how about loving families?

    I guess the children of such unions is our only answer/proof of that

    Hmm, surely polygamous relationships would breed the most children.

    I think there are two possible best ways to raise children. The first and simpilest would be monogomy. It is a stable and solid relationship between just two people who will raise a child from birth to adulthood. It teaches good morals and gives the child a level of predictability in its life unlike the other options listed which often involve rapid change.

    The second possible way to raise children would be similar to that discussed in some futuristic/sci-fi movies. Have the children belong not to the parents but rather to a community. Assuming the obvious possible flaws of this method are taken care of such as crime and neglect which may make this not even a credible option, it could possibly be to a great benefit for children to not have just one home but many homes. It would give the child a strong social upbringing where they are put in a great variety of situations in which to learn from. It may provide an ideal upbringing for a child who will grow up well rounded, educated, and with many people who they can trust. Still, for many reasons this type of upbringing is unrealistic at this time.

    I agree with you...
    and your second option is already a reality in tribal communities...Most tribal families this is how they raise their young..

    The union of Choice?

    It depends on the reason you are breeding children in the first place. The best way is not to use your poll guide, but to go by what characteristics you are trying to create.

    As far as raising the child, I feel the child should have many loving adults who are responsible for raising the child in a loving and nuturing way.

    Actually, the way a Kibutzum raises is children is good...they raise them together so they always have other children around them and the adults care for them.

    Parents can raise their children in one of two main ways:

    Authoritarian style - Boss them around.

    Libertarian style - Let them do what they want.

    Authoritarian style seems more dominant in our society, yet it is a form of child abuse IMO. I voted "Other" because I am in favor of the libertarian style in general, regardless of polygamy, monogamy, or whatever.
    How many socialists does it take to change a lightbulb?

    Answer: Why should they have to change it? The government should provide this essential service for free! And anyone opposed to this is opposed to changing light bulbs and advocates that poor people should sit in the dark!
