What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day?

The New York Times reports a disturbing trend:
For what experts say is probably the first time, more American women are living without a husband than with one, according to a New York Times analysis of census results.

And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach. (Isaiah 4:1)
