Response to BigmanPigman (Reply #7)

8. i think there has at some level been a recognition of left handers being less desirable as soldiers

and more likely to be curious and questioning of authority due to less of that irrational need for certainty

at some level it's default and self perpetuating absent sex education but the koran, for instance, includes the law - "man can only have sex with his wife and that which the right hand possesses"

the scholars interpret that as referring to slaves and captives but what about non soldiers and young men who didn't have the resources for a wife or slave? how does that translate to modern times? then with the chiefs getting more than one wife they're officially ramping up the frustration and sowb.

then couple that with the promise of 72 virgins in heaven to fantasize about.... you can really get an obedient authoritarian certainty worshipping army together
