Men are wired to form hierarchies. That means competition and rules. The winner of the game is also the guy who masters these rules. And the rules are more important than anyone on the ladder: men are willing to sacrifice themselves for a higher cause, to serve the system, to “let the best man win”. Men in the ladder respect their superiors because they represent better incarnations of the rules.
In other words, living by a code is masculine as fuck.
A slacker is not naturally more masculine than a right-doer. An evil dude who exploits the system for his own benefit is not naturally more masculine than a dude working for the benefit of the system. But the meme repeats, the good guy gets emasculated and the slacker is somewhat more adept. Why would that be?
I ask: whose rules are you following? what code are you measuring against? who´s your superior? did you decide to belong to a system which is emasculating you, or was it nurtured / enforced on you? does your code give you a deep core sense of value and identity, or is it stealing those things from you? who´s benefiting?
Every system I´ve seen out there is designed to turn men into servants. These not only target the noble hierarchy-rules wiring, but also the herd mentality, and keep people trapped by using lies, misinformation, fear, manipulation, shaming, physical force, threats, and false rewards.
When we really dont need any of that crap.
I know I dont. And maybe you dont, either.
