Happy days are here again in Libya-

.... the chairman of the National Transitional Council and de facto president, announced that Libyan laws would have Sharia as their “basic source.” Just to get the ball rolling, he immediately lifted one law from Gaddafi’s era that he said was in conflict with Sharia — the law banning polygamy.

Don't get me wrong. As a libertarian I'm all for polygamy - but in a non-discriminatory way, for women as well as men. Let anyone have four wives or ten husbands or a hundred if one so chooses. It's about happiness and freedom and, as they said in Kung Fu Panda 2, inner peace, not social oppression.
