Part 1 of 2
American men are in serious trouble. Former standards of masculinity as aggression, power, and stoic denial of emotional vulnerability are now widely considered toxic. The economic dominance that white men had with family wages disappeared when American capitalists mechanized, computerized, and outsourced white men's jobs from the 1970s on. Manhood has changed its demands.
American women had a movement behind us when we changed our roles and poured into the labor force . Men do not have that powerful group support. Is it any wonder that all of America's far too frequent mass shootings are perpetrated by men? I hope this podcast helps us understand men's confusion and suffering and helps to transform it into new human possibilities.
