    "The problem here is not polygamy per se"
    Alcohol and polygamy - one is legal; one is not.
    Maybe you should worry about the illegal one.

    Has this board lost its collective mind? The establishment of a winery in this polygamist country is a recipe for disaster.

    The problem here is not polygamy per se, it is the brand of polygamy. The brand of polygamy practiced in Hillsdale is a virulent form that borders on anarchy. Child abuse and other forms of illegal activity are rampant.

    Increasing the alcohol supply in a community of near anarchy is downright dangerous. Alcohol abuse is proven to increase crime, and injecting this into an already semi-lawless community will cause crime rates to skyrocket.
