For reasons known only to them, our forefathers who fought in two world wars and built America up from a mostly agrarian backwater to an industrial superpower gave away everything they made in the vain hope of pleasing their women.
Past generations of men got us into this mess. Only we can get ourselves out. A comprehensive plan is beyond the scope of this blog, but here are some general tips to get you started where you are.
1 Stop putting women on pedestals. Movies, TV, and your parents probably told you to defer to your wives and girlfriends at all times. They lied. Three generations of men have tried the supplication route and succeeded only in causing an epidemic of divorces--70% of which are initiated by women.
2 Similar to 1: Your wife/GF is not your "life", your "soul mate", or your "best friend". She is a fallen human being whose vocation is to be your helpmeet and the mother of your children.
3 Neither is she your boss. Women are spiritually and biologically designed to follow men. They may tell you they want to be equal partners in the relationship. This is a test. You fail it, and maker her miserable, if you cave. Start leading.
4 It is neither normal nor healthy for a man to spend all of his time around women and children. Men need the company of other men for their own self-development and happiness. That Western men have been reduced to atomized consumers relegated to man-caves in the basements and garages of houses they own is by fiendish design. Peel yourself away from your "better half" for a few hours a week to start a club, join a bowling league, or just get together with your male friends.
Follow these steps for a month, and you'll be amazed at how much less of an obsequious pseudoadolescent soyboy you become. Who knows? You might even save Christendom.
