Passing the Torch of Masculinity

Passing the Torch of Masculinity

I can think of no better way to introduce the topic of today’s posting than to quote the sobering words of Ronald Reagan:

Masculinity is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our sons in the bloodstream. It must be fought for and protected. The flame of masculinity must be handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like when men were masculine.

Okay. Maybe this is a loose paraphrase. But the point still stands.

It is up to today’s men – and today’s fathers in particular – to pass down the flame of masculinity to the next generation. It is our responsibility to teach our sons what it means to live a principled and authentic life without shame, fear or compromise.

Yet, we find ourselves within an epoch of time in which fathers are failing to pass down the torch of masculinity to their progeny – and western society is now reeling from the consequences of this dereliction of duty that has been ongoing for decades.

The symptoms of this societal disease will only continue to worsen until men collectively rise up and take responsibility for our culpability in their promulgation.

Every boy is born with innately masculine characteristics: boundless energy, relentless ambition, fearless risk taking, the instinct to inflict calculated physical violence, unfettered loyalty and desire to sacrifice of self for the benefit of his fellow man.

Each of these traits is ingrained in the male human from the moment he’s conceived. To diverge from them comes at the expense of intense consternation that grinds away at the very foundations of his existence.

It’s no coincidence that the overwhelming majority of transgendered individuals, who happen to be males pretending to be females, experience suicidal thoughts at an alarming rate.

This is the result of a soul crying out in agony. Crying out for help.

Help is scarce because men are afraid to break the mold and speak the truth. We’re afraid to live out our masculinity. To do so is to risk being labeled as a sexist, misogynist, mansplaining parasite whose existence is toxic to the world.

Standing up to the incredulous ideas being pushed on us by the femi-nazis and LGBT community can come at a high cost. Men who’ve done so have been doxed, had their reputations stained and their livelihoods stripped from them.

For the masculine man, the cost of living life with full authenticity should be irrelevant.

We must never stand down from speaking truth from our convictions for fear of what others may think, feel or do as a result.

Allowing fear to control our actions is how we’ve come to find ourselves in the present-day crisis of masculinity.

It’s high time that we rise from the ashes and forge a new era in which masculinity is taught, exemplified and valued.

This revolution of masculinity must begin in the home with fathers owning who they are as men and expressing their masculine nature within their own families.

It must also spread from there out into the communities in which we live, work and serve. The application of this truth is the theme of this week’s podcast.

In today’s episode of The Family Alpha Podcast, Hunter and I discuss:

  • Why masculine fathers are so imperative to the development of healthy and vibrant children
  • How men can get involved in the community to spread the seeds of their masculine example
  • The micro and macro consequences of men choosing to repress their authentic masculine nature
  • How the torch of masculinity is being snuffed out
  • What men must do to throw fuel on the dwindling fire of masculinity and pass the blazing flame down to future generations to carry on

    Agreed, its about passing on the torch of masculinity and being authentic, rather then trying to kill feminism first as a few freaks would suggest. Its the wrong approach, it always needs to start with you first.

  • “We must never stand down from speaking truth from our convictions for fear of what others may think, feel or do as a result.”

    Unfortunately, this can come at too great a risk these days.

    There is no winning bro. Just the fact that you have to mention how parasitic you are viewed by feminazi madhouse society, shows the degree of your enslavement. You play the masculine alpha ape, but in fact just cower and shrink in your corner like any other western man. Men today dont have the balls to reclaim the world. Noone has. because blood must be shed for that to happen.

    • Craig James says:

      You’re virtue signaling behind an anon account, while I’m living a fantastic life as a free man who’s unafraid to share who I am with the world (including my missteps).

      Enslavement is as enslavement does.

  • Daughter of Babylon says:

    I don’t think there is an entity in the universe more sweet, innocent, pure, and intrinsically good than the transgender female. The subject and recipient of great disdain from much of the world’s population has the heart of a Lioness…she has more courage in her spirit and her actions than the ordinary person could ever conceive. Unfortunate biological fate has placed her in an untenable and impossible situation between Scylla & Charybdis…but she does not shrink before the challenge and the world around her. Rather she approaches the difficulty as a challenge to her womanhood and her character…she looks disapproving society in the eye and tells them that what “they think” is quite beside the point…for Her life & liberty is not theirs to control…or to give…or to take.

    It is always laughable when outsiders whose medical background consists of a high school biology course and whatever they read on the internet that seems to support their perverse views label the transgendered as “sick, perverted, and twisted”. The intense hatred they evince for defenseless transgender people was developed by the indoctrination (brainwashing) that their parents, church, school, and most other elements of society fed them. The transgendered have a suicide rate a good deal higher than almost all other groups in society. I wonder why?

    Well, for almost all questions there is a plausible answer; in this circumstance two! When a person suffers profound mind / body incongruity (sort of a duality) instability is practically a certainty. The feminine and the masculine are two diametrically opposed forces…veritable polar opposites; placing them in a single incarnate being is a recipe for psychological strife. I gravely doubt any person on the planet could sail through life without at least one nervous breakdown were they given a male body at birth while maintaining the feminine mindset. Secondly, since much of society has treated the transgendered as personas non grata in perpetuity…the social castigation and violence that they are on the receiving end of…from the cradle to the grave…is unquestionably a major contributing factor to any mental distress they might manifest. In other words, if society did not inflict so much torture on them; odds are they would not have such an alarming suicide rate.

    The Greatest Lie of All Time is that males are the privileged, ruling class. Intelligent people are quite cognizant of the fact that the precise opposite is true…males are the Slave Gender…while females represent the Master Class.
    Why do males hate M2F transwomen so much?

    Is there anything a slave hates more than an escaped slave?

    Why do some women hate M2F transgender women? Because that once slave has now transmuted into an equal; a member of the Ruling Class…no longer can this “new” woman be exploited…she must be respected and treated with courtesy.

    In the Old Days, during segregation, they had things called minstrel shows where white racists would laugh at a white man in what they called “black face”…it was considered “amusing” for a white person to act black…and socially acceptable in that era….just as a woman acting “mannish” is never really frowned on much by society…the so-called tomboy. The Ruling Class can always feign membership in the lower castes without social stigma. But, in those same olden days…if a black person seemed to be acting “white”…he or she would be the target of acid criticism by both blacks and whites…acting “uppity”….acting “bougie”…”gettin’ above your raisin’”. Even today you sometimes see this. Same is true when a man declares he wants to be female….”sissy”….”queer”…and plenty of other nasty names will be directed at him….because of his efforts to leave the slave gender and join the Ruling Female Class. Most of the invective will come from other males; for the utterly obvious but willfully ignored reason I listed above. Slaves don’t really need slave masters…they absolutely excel at enforcing their own thralldom. The insanity that pervades the human psyche is quite an interesting thing to behold….

    “*E Pluribus Unum!*” trumpets the Motto of The Greatest Empire (in terms of wealth, though not yet endurance) this world has ever known. In other words, “Out of Many, One” The essential item to take away from the shibboleth is that through this synergistic interface of many cultures; One more powerful than the Sum of Its Parts Emerges. It is a classic example of the Hegelian Dialectic: Thesis conflated with Antithesis yields Synthesis. The transgendered woman very much embodies this concept: The Unification of Male & Female in A Single Entity yields the Super(wo)man whose Arrival the Great Freddy Nietzsche presciently forecast over a century ago…
