There have always been adventure tourists anyways. Miles is just a social media savvy iteration of it. Many of them end up as journalists or at least write about their experiences so they can make some money sustaining their zany lifestyle. PJ O'Rourke used to call war correspondents 'War Tourists' as one example.

There's even travel handbooks about such nuttery.

He gets paid for it in various ways -- quite lucratively, too. It's basically all hazard pay, and the morality of it and his actions are questionable, but... he's making bank.
What are his actions exactly?
Other than, you know, a more subtle form of "look folks, I am sticking my head in this sleeping alligator's mouth..."?

It's more a philosophical thing: He's basically making money off the misery going on out there, although he is basically poking the sharks repeatedly as he does it.

Is he doing this for the clicks, because he is nuts or just an idiot.
If it's clicks he want's North Korea is better. Granted, whenever I go on vacation there, I always take the whole U.S. Military with me which greatly improves the whole experience.

I wonder if he will buy into North Korean propaganda while he is there if he ever visits there.

And doesn't try and take anything

Um, what...?!?

Something about him going to north Korea?

In any case, in the good old days someone like him would be locked up in the nuthouse, but that is not humane nowadays.

Not really. Most of us are fairly normal and sane.
Apparently possessing common-sense, pattern recognition skills, and completely disagreeing with abstract thinking and concepts designed to degenerate humanity and oppress people? It all means we're nuts by the standards seen two decades or so ago, apparently? smh
I meant more like the metric of yore applied to today, because those universal values today are considered fringe and crazy by a large section of the population who wouldn't hesitate to jail us for less.

Relationships between two people are complicated enough. Adding more people isn’t worth it.

Also, I suggest you look at the history of China and various Middle Eastern nations for why it’s not a good idea.

Christopher Hitchens warned us of such things many years ago...

I'm aware that most of the time polygamy is damaging to society especially if it's the king or Emperor who is doing it(because that is a recipe for succession wars) but even for commoners it's bad because humans have a gender rate of 50/50 between men and women. So if one guy has more than one someone else would have none and men not getting married and having no women is bad for social stability.

It doesn't mean that a man wouldn't want a variety of women(and while it's wrong to fornicate there are situations where polygamy can be allowed and it won't damage society and will in fact help. Like if there was a massive war that cut down the male population then you'd want women to not be alone and have a man to support them and the population to grow) this is rare though and it shouldn't be common because near apocolyptic wars are a bad thing. But generally polygamy is not an inherently wrong thing like sodomy for instance. Because there is never an instance where sodomy is helpful, but there are small circumstances where if you have a low population of males it would be a good idea to have polygamy for only one generation.
