Several high-level executives of massive global firms including the chairman of Alphabet, the parent company of Google, have resigned this year in what is a noticeable trend of top corporate executives stepping down.

“In recent years, I’ve been spending a lot of my time on science and technology issues, and philanthropy, and I plan to expand that work,” said Eric E. Schmidt, chairman of Alphabet.

Schmidt left his role at the company on Dec. 21. He served as Google CEO from 2001 to 2011, as part of his 17-year tenure at the tech giant.

Massachusetts City Council Votes for Official Recognition of “Polyamorous” Relationships

Descending down the slippery slope.

Published

on

The left-wing city council of Somerville, Massachusetts voted unanimously last week to recognize “polyamorous” relationships, enshrining intimate relationships between multiple people on a level equal to that of traditional heterosexual marriage.

Polyamory is a lifestyle that allows for amorphous and plural intimate sexual relationships between multiple people. It’s been compared to historical practices of polygamy in non-western and peripheral societies, although its advocates and adherents claim their lifestyle is distinct from the shunned and more controversial practice.

City Councilor Lance Davis explained his support for the resolution recognizing polyamory, stating that he “doesn’t feel it’s the place of government to define a family.” The recognition of the plural relationship practice may be the first of its kind from a governmental institution in the United States or modern-day western society.

Another city councilor who supporter recognizing polyamory, J.T. Scott, claimed that he knew at least two dozen polyamorous households throughout the city of Somerville.

The city ordinance will apply employment benefits to all partners of polyamorous relationships who could claim the benefits as a city employee’s spouse.

It appears likely to possible that the initial push in favor of polyamorous recognition will spiral into a newfound cultural struggle on the part of liberal ideologues, determined to enshrine a system similar in nature to medieval or Islamic polygamy within the legal confines of American society in the name of “progress” and “tolerance.”
