I think society is moving backwards. In feudal society, and in much of the world, polygamy was the norm. One high status man with multiple wives. We're slowly heading towards that structure again in a sense. There's going to be a small subset of men with multiple partners while the vast majority of men haggle for the leftovers or just plain die alone. In feudal society, there was a king and then a small subset of lords, barons, earls and other nobility who ruled over everyone. Billionaires and their corporations are the new aristocrats, and soon we'll drop any pretense of meritocracy and go back to giving these people titles while the rest of us become peasants. Lord Zuckerberg and Duke Bezos have a certain ring to it, no?
