    What is the mechanism behind polytheism? Surely true polytheists would need everyone to build reality?

    If everybody takes their problems to the table and each is content to walk away with their own, can it get better than that?

    Just to clarify, do you know what polytheism is?

    The fairest way is that those who suffered most get the most back.

    Edit. Working together will cause a net lift which will still benefit even the richest and most guilty unimaginably just not as much as the poorest / most contributing.

    Polytheism means many gods.

    I can see how what you are saying vaguely fits, but could you be a bit more direct?

    Monotheism = Belief in one Deity.

    Polytheism = Belief in multiple Deities. (From the Greek 'polytheia' - Many Gods).

    Are you perhaps befuddling polytheism with egalitarianism?

    No. Straight up. I reckon we're all Gods. Critters too.
