A New Path
I started this website to address what I perceive as a growing disquiet among men, particularly young men. We have been told, implicitly or explicitly, that men no longer have a place in polite society. I am here to debunk that myth.
In my view, there has been two reactions on the part of men to this shift in societal attitudes:
- To ignore these changes and pretend everything is as it was when your grandfather was alive
- To embrace a dogmatic view which forsakes society altogether
I found myself torn between these two camps. How could I pretend to go back to a ‘simpler time’ when that society no longer exists? But how could I walk away from women and work to prove a point about how desperately society needs men?
I chose a third way. I chose to not let another dictate to me how I would live my life. I would not adopt the dogma of another to avoid the pain of introspection and the difficulty of acquiring new skills.
This is a site built for the thinking man. I will not boss you around and tell you how you should live your life. I am going to share with you the insights I have gained through my experiences and through those insights hopefully pass on tools for you to use in your own self-empowerment.
On the way we will look at what it has meant historically to be a man and how to integrate those ideas into a modern context. We will talk about relationships, health, intellectual pursuits, careers and other topics.
If you are ready to trudge the hard yards I am ready to give you a hand up. Let’s go to work.
