The question, here, is not what works ~ description of reality, at least the way I understood it. The question was whether or not projection, power, polygamy, and oppression in Islam are connected.

Psychological projection is a defence mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.[1] For example, a person who is habitually rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude. It incorporates blame shifting.

That Quran preaches to treat all wives in the same fashion is a fact. That, in reality, it's not possible seems reasonable to me. And when a wife is not satisfied, well, I know what mine did ;)
