Description

It is said that immature artists copy, and great ones steal. This is an excellent maxim. But who do we steal from? And what do we steal from them? The first part isn't too complicated - steal from those who have won, those who are successful, and those who have made it. Learn from the experts and the champions, not the amateurs and those who have lost. The second part is more complex, what we steal is what is defined as good, but what is good?



This episode explores these questions and more, all through the inspiration of the World Cup.

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.
