“The battle outside ragin’ will soon shake your windows and rattle your walls, for the times they are a-changin’.”
In 2022, the crisis facing young men has finally gone mainstream. Political pundits from all sides of the aisle are asking: “What is happening to our young men?” They aren’t going to college, most are living at home, one third of them are sexless, and a record number of them aren’t looking for work. What is the cause of this? Answers range from “toxic masculinity” to a supposed failure to “man up.” Even though there are several possible factors, one thing is certain: that this is going to cause severe problems for our society. Not only will men’s lessened status lead to weaker social cohesion, lack of family formation, and a weaker military, but it will also cause a serious drop in our collective standard of living.
