“Where have all the good men gone”? A Michael Voris Video

Get a grip, dude.

Those who have been reading yours truly for some time are probably aware of his clear, willingly politically incorrect, very Southern-European call to real masculinity and to the end of the effeminate “look at how feminist I am”-metrosexual attitude of our time.

Today I stumbled upon this Michael Voris Video and I thought – as I do rather often – that the chap has actually already said everything I wanted to express.

The only reflection I’d like to add is that, seen from a European/Italian perspective, it would appear that cars and role of the husband have gone in opposite directions. In the Fifties and Sixties – when “the world was still in order” and the roles within the family well-defined – cars had a gentle appearance and, generally speaking, delicate colours. The pastel blues, greens and beiges dominated the automotive landscape and the cars themselves were rather gentle in their appearance (think of the autos of the Fifties, with their rounded and almost feminine forms and theirs, as stated, always delicate colours).

Nowadays we have an abundance of aggressive-looking, huge, “metallic black” metal monsters (up there to the extreme cases, like the Hummer in its various incarnations) which are driven by men who were never able to take the leading role in their family. This is a reflection I have had for some years now (cue the frequent office discussions where there is always the colleague who considers cars like a Mercedes SLK something “for girlies” and obviously nothing less than a BMW M will do,  but you perfectly well know he’d never be able to stand up to his girlfriend) and has been awakened by the Hummer in Michael Voris’ video.

“The bigger the car, the weaker the man”? Certainly not, as big cars do have their beauty and their rationale. But “the weaker the man, the bigger the need to compensate with an aggressive-looking car” might get nearer to the truth.

Enjoy the video.

  1. Italians are famous for their traditional attitudes to gender. I agree that the metrosexual model is a disaster. Look at the shape of David Cameron for example. I can’t help but think the metrosexual identity and undermining of ‘masculinity’ is feeding into the crisis of leadership (since priests are spiritual fathers) in the Church today. If you don’t know how to be a man you won’t make a very good priest. I really think civilization as a whole has just degenerated – perhaps beyond the point of no return.

      Couldn’t agree more.
      The priest must be a man, not a eunuch. A figure from which the young take inspiration, not a figure of ridicule.
