5. Interesting.
Polygamy was gaining a foothold in violent right-wing sects back in the 80s and 90s. The Bruders Schweigen("Silent Brotherhood") who killed Alan Berg and robbed several armored cars also engaged in polygamy and embraced "Mormon Fundimentalism".

There are so many parrelels and commonalities between the extreme right-wing of that era and what we are seeing today, in both actions and rhetoric, in mainstreamed conservative politics. I don't think that this is a coincidence.
