Spend the morning thinking about The Alhambra, The Ottoman Empire, Morocco and the Gulf States. About harems to be precised.
With the exception of the Gulf States, the demise of these empires corresponded with a preceding increase in the size of the harems. Morocco's monarchy survived through its present form arguably, because of the dismantling of his father's harem by King Hassan II. General Oufkir's attempted overthrow of King Mohamad V in the 60s was partly driven by politics but mainly by the public's contempt of the lifestyle of the rulers. The Ottoman's state budget was stretched to the extend that linen and stipend allowances affected spending on bullets and military recruitment.
What would it take to build and sustain a harem today?
Apart from infinite amount of moolahs, we need to retrack back all advances, dismantle all progress and withdraw all rights, women take for granted today. Religion and especially archaic scriptures, where women are subservient and substitutable, should be promoted. They should also be devoid of emotions and confined their passion to pleasing their master in as many contorted ways as possible.
Dont think it will work for me though. I like my women loud, crass and opinionated. I concede, sluttish too.
