Of all the things this country needs—stronger borders, better-paying jobs, basic safety on the streets—above all, America needs stronger people. The left has spent decades cornering men and blaming them for everything from climate change to “patriarchy.” they are wrong A strong man is not a problem. For America, stronger, better men are the solution.
Everything is going wrong for men in this country. The numbers tell the story. Men are lonelier than ever. They are dropping out of the workforce in greater numbers than ever before. They suffer more from substance abuse and alcohol. They are delaying marriage and childbearing, while more and more people are not getting a college education.
If other demographic groups were struggling this much, it would be called a national crisis. And yes.
But the left doesn’t think so. They blame boys and men for the sins of the world. They say that all masculinity is “toxic” and that just being a man makes the world worse. They propose to do away with “traditional masculinity” altogether.
Leftist campaigns to re-educate men began as early as kindergarten, with too many boys being punished for aggressive play and drugged for juvenile disobedience. Young men who were denied the manufacturing jobs that their fathers could have paid well (the ruling class had long ago diverted such jobs overseas), they are activists who despise themselves. You will be drifting through a packed college campus. And popular culture beats this same drum relentlessly. When men are not fools, they are positively evil.
This criticism of men is fundamentally rooted in lies. Men should not be leaders, creators, or heroes, but simply consumers who care about themselves.
The truth is the opposite. Men need to step up.
Aldo: I’m Generation Z. Men of the same age are not dating. Why?
American men have the power to change this country for the better. Want to stop the epidemic of child poverty? Get fathers to start serving their wives and children. Want to address the catastrophe of youth violence? Put your father in the picture. Humanity can bring peace and order to a country in crisis. They can change the fate of entire families and neighborhoods. Their powers, once harnessed, can be powerful and world-shaping.
However, strength alone is not enough. Power becomes true strength, power for good, only when used in the right way and for the right reason. What we need is a guide, a roadmap, to what it means to be a good human being.
For that, we should return to the faith of our ancestors.
Just as the Left attacks traditional masculinity, it also attacks traditional beliefs. It’s no coincidence. Faith and masculinity go hand in hand. Because for centuries, people have turned to faith and the Bible to understand who they are and what they can become. In these troubled times, our ancient beliefs can once again guide us.
Bible stories are not just collections of familiar stories. It invites men to find their place in the universe and take on their role in the epic drama that gives life meaning.

Beginning with Adam in the Garden of Eden, the Bible states that humans have a mission to bring order to the world, transform chaos into beauty, and wilderness into gardens. To carry out that noble task, every man must shape his personality, shape his soul. The road to masculinity is the road to virtue.
Men are being asked to shape their character as husbands and fathers. Just as Abraham devoted himself to his wife Sarah and trusted God’s promise that her son would be born, so they are called upon to give themselves to others and humbly accept their limitations. increase.
Men are expected to have the character of warriors and builders. Just as Joshua defied the monsters of Canaan and David laid the foundations of God’s temple, they must fight evil and create beauty out of chaos.

And humans are expected to have the nature of priests and kings. They must carry the promise of eternity wherever they go, and wield their power to defend truth and freedom.
Over the years, American men have only heard one story. They say they are outdated and oppressive, and the best they can do is put aside and let today’s elite take care of things. It’s the story modern culture tells from cradle to grave. stand up Please be receptive. It just makes things worse.
It’s time to start telling better stories. It’s time to give our boys some leadership.
That’s how we change the country.
