I humbly submit an essay on the state of American education, pop culture, and the continued emasculation of men in our politically correct society.Making Men out of Boys
This decline in male learning and maturity is the result of a 50-year assault on the old virtues of manhood. Uncle Sam has been vanquished by Aunt Samantha and her “nanny state,”... The manly virtues that once carried men across oceans in tiny ships, and soldiers into battle, no longer serve a purpose. Technology, social safety nets, sexual equality, a kinder and gentler society: These are replacing the masculine attributes of independence, hard work, courage, duty, and honor...Having spent 50 years educating boys as if they were girls, we now gape in wonder at their failure, their frustration, and their anger.
