Description

This episode of the eRochefoucauld podcast focuses on one topic – marriage. Marriage is one of the oldest continuous institutions surrounding human relationships. Like anything that has existed since we began writing things down, it is subject to and of, endless comedies and tragedies. Marriage has been at times protagonist, antagonist, and stage in this long story. Today, however, marriage rates are on a tremendous decline. Now I don’t believe there is any single answer to this, nor will I be making any such case for one answer or many. Rather, I wish to offer an alternative story about marriage. A story different from the one in current fashion – a good story.

An Epic of Masculinity
When good men sit down, bad men stand up. When masculine virtues are ignored, masculine vices reign. When kings are told to go away, tyrants take their place. This is not just a description, but a strategy.This results in a world where a plurality of masculine figures without virtue are in leadership positions in governments, companies, and organizations. This structure is incentivized to forward and repeat the societal talking points whereby masculinity is defined as toxic. This narrative helps prevent good men from rising up.The toxic masculine narrative is the norm, of both history and today.I'm going to crush this status quo, by uplifting masculine idealism.It is a simple formula. Competence + Ethics. This is the masculine ideal.We are a species that doesn’t do well with nuance. We see so many bad men in the world and in the news, and we drift towards simple answers: men are bad. With this we forget that our last and best hope against tyranny is the development of masculine ideals and virtues.It is for this reason that stories about the positive masculine (and omens about the negative masculine) have survived and thrived for thousands of years.I’m going to crush the historic and modern status quo that defines all men as toxic, not by offering my critique of their position, but by offering the alternative. The alternative are these stories and lessons from history, philosophy, and idea. These stories have one purpose: uplift the positive masculine, and teach masculine ideals.
