I thought of it and I've decided that I'd take it one step further. Some of you probably remember the other thread in which I offered a way to subjugate a society. Well, I'm going to build on that. Under the new program, only females would be allowed to own land and every male must have a female "handler." (De facto owner.) Any males without handlers would be imprisoned or auctioned off. If no handler is found for them, they would be put down. The males would work for their handlers, making their handlers relatively well off. Their handlers, being women, would have no reason to breed females, unless to procure an heir. The majority of their children will be, through wide-spread use of voluntary abortion, males. Over time the amount of males would greatly outweigh the amount of females and their tribe would reach a biological end. This way we can wipe out an enemy tribe without making them unproductive. In fact, seeing as how de facto slave labour will be introduced, we might even make them more productive. Until they're, you know, out of the picture. In terms of handler laws, a male child belongs to its mother, unless sold. Initially all handlers will be determined by where everybody lives. Opportunities to become soldiers should be offered to the males, so that there is plenty of cannon fodder. The handler can, thus, "rent out" her stock to the government for its uses. All this would be enforced, of course, by the occupational forces and their female collaborators within the society. Your thoughts?
