158. Justice, Politics, Reading and More with The Vital Masculinity Podcast

I had the chance to sit down (virtually) with Brian Murphy and Stephen Sloyer from the Vital Masculinity Podcast to talk about some of the things that have been on our mind recently. Since it had been a while since we talked, we had a lot to cover. So, if you want to catch up, you can check out my previous conversation with the Vital Masculinity crew. But, you can also dive into the interview below.

In this interview with the Vital Masculinity crew:

Let us stop pathologizing masculinity. Instead, let us appreciate the endless ways by which men and women are similar to one another, as well as the important ways in which the two sexes differ.

-Gad Saad

Virtue Makes the Man…

Stephen and Brian reiterate this great piece of advice on their podcast each time they sign off. And, I argue that they are embodying this in what they do and talk about on their podcast. So, if you want to learn about the virtues and what it looks like to live them out, check out this conversation and their work.

The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.

Marcus Aurelius

About The Vital Masculinity Project

Our goal is to restore classical masculinity by encouraging men to pursue virtue and brotherhood. While there are many competing voices on manliness today, most have forgotten this foundation of character while instead focusing on externals. We strive to provide practical steps for all men to begin their journey to becoming virtuous. Visit our Journal for reflections virtue and manliness or check out our podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or any of your other favorite podcast providers to listen to rich conversations about them.

199. Time to Fight | Lord of the Rings The Two Towers Book Review Conversation of Our Generation

There comes a time when you have to fight, even if it seems hopeless. I think we're at that point in our culture. And no, I'm not calling for actual violence. I'm calling for us to simply rise up and speak the truth, even when it's hard. You may not want to be the one to take part in the battle. But when it's time to fight, you don't always have a choice. I think this book demonstrates how we ought to act when we're up against the wall and see no way out. "Arise now, arise, Riders of Theoden! Dire deeds awake, dark is it eastward. Let horse be bridled, horn be sounded! Forth Eorlingas!" – J.R.R. Tolkien Sign up for the email list here. How to Know it's Time to Fight It can be hard to know when you should stand your ground and fight. Sometimes it's clear, and sometimes it's murky. However, I think right now we can clearly see that our culture is under attack from many directions. Some of the most basic truths are being called into question. We don't trust our institutions, and deservedly so. Furthermore, the education of our children is being undermined and used to indoctrinate them. So, if you ask me, it's time to push back. It's time to fight. Fighting for a Lost Cause But, how do we go about that? Has the left not completely taken over the culture? While they may have taken over most of the culture, I don't think fighting back is a lost cause. It may be a long shot, but they were able to systematically and radically subvert the culture over the past century. I think we can play their game of inches as well and flip the culture. — Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
