Male Role Models


Boys need grown men to be role models, to show them how to go about doing things. Most people at some level understand this. Yet they really don’t seem to care. One of the reasons might be the historic perspective that guys should just figure out what needs to be done and do it. Still, boys and young men need something to go on; leaving it all up the rudderless adolescents doesn’t seem to be a good plan.

Where did the role models come from in the past. It started with a Dad at home. There were Grandfathers and Uncles also. That is less of a thing these days, due to divorce. Then there was TV, movies and literature. We all know how that has gone, epitomized perhaps by TV commercials depicting men as useless. Which leads us to the last aspect; the idea that men are incompetent buffoons. At least one generation of young men have come of age under this idea. They can’t help but take some of it to heart. One wonders how good of a role model they will be for their sons. There have been two generations that have come of age under the Divorced Dad regime. We are all paying the price.

Is this all planned, or is it collateral damage?

    The incredible levels of dysfunction we see today in the black community are a direct result of the removal of fathers from the home, and yes it was planned. Around 70% of black children are born out of wedlock, and this rate continues to rise. Couple this with a divorce rate around 50% and very few young black men grow up with their father in the home. This is further exacerbated by our (U.S.) current welfare system, in which a woman can collect benefits only if she expels her children’s father from the home. Note, she may continue to collect benefits if she has a live in boyfriend, so long as he is not the father of her children…. But if dad is in the home then she loses all benefits; a program that is downright devilish in its pernicious effects. In 1957 Chicago had around 300 murders; in the mid 60s Johnson’s Great Society program began, no fault divorce was introduced, and by 1974 the city had 970 homicides…. More than tripling the level of violence in only 17 years.
    As fatherlessness spreads to other ethnic groups we see similar rises in criminality across the board, along with decreased capabilities in academics, measurable in declines of both literacy and mathematical ability.
    There is a snowball effect as girls raised in fatherless homes have much higher rates of early sexual expression and pregnancy, almost always without marriage.
    We seem to be reaching a “critical mass” of fatherlessness. The rate of violence and general stupidity is surpassing the ability of society to compensate… Hence the “Ferguson Effect” and ever more manic efforts by the U.S. Fed to create more fiat dollars to cover the bills. How long before that paper goes full Weimar is beyond my ability to predict, but when it does, and the EBT cards no longer work, cannibalism will be right around the corner.

    It is true that most of the world’s economies are tied in with the West, not all are. Those that are will no doubt suffer but will survive.
    Is of little importance to me what happens when western society eventually collapses, we won’t be in the middle of it. I am not gloating or happy about the destruction, but have no part in preserving it either.

    We’re due for a reset in the West. We’ve been unwilling to make difficult choices for a long time now. The problems grew in size and scope and are now going to be much harder and more painful to correct. A heaping dose of discomfort is going to be the motivation to change. What is the old adage? Hard times make strong men. Strong men make good times. Good times make weak men. Weak men make hard times. We’re finishing up the good times make weak men part of the cycle.

    May I suggest that this is as much due to the over-the-top hysterical reaction to criticism, and the censoring of critics, as to the criticism itself? Act like you’re hiding something, people will think you have something to hide. Act like you’re insecure, and people will think you’ve got something to be insecure about.
