"And your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams" -- Acts 2:17


From Men of the West: "I certainly do not have all the answers, and look forward to your thoughts in the comments, but here are some things that these young men could start doing to get back on the right path – the path of a Man of the West.

  1. Learn that feminism is evil. Eschew it completely. Women should be women, and that means having babies and caring for the home. It is your job to support and protect them. Figure that out.
  2. Stop with the sissy crap. Learn how to be a man. Playing with cartoons is not manly. It is a child’s past time. I am not saying you can’t play video games or such things, but realize what they are. If your main hobby is playing with anime/manga cards, then you need to grow up. Get a gun and cigar, and learn how to use both.
  3. Wear some clothes that are fitting for a man. If you own skinny jeans, burn them. I am serious. Do not throw them away. Make them cease to exist. That crap does not belong on a man’s body. Wear clothes that project a manly persona.
  4. Get in shape. Most young men are either fat or skinny/weak. Both suck. You need to lift weights (see our Beast Life articles on this site for help). Get strong and muscled.
  5. Learn to fight. Look, hopefully, you never need to do this, but there is a real possibility that you may need to use these skills. So be ready. Watch this video. (Note that the aggressor has the ‘excessively bushy beard’, mentioned above). Listen to the whining tone from the assaulted young man. He is about to cry. If that fat piece of crap tried to hit me, they would be scraping him off the walls. I am not normally a violent man, and neither are the other folks here. But by God, if we, or our loved ones are threatened, we are all capable of bringing hellfire down upon you. That is what men do.
  6. Quit accepting whatever you are told as being truth. Most of these young men get their info from comedy shows, college professors, and/or the fake news on Main Stream Media. Look, none of those sources are unbiased. They have an agenda, even when they try to hide it. Ferret out the truth for yourself. Learn to think for yourself. Men do not just blindly accept information. They weigh it, test it, and hold to what is good and true, and reject what is not. Learn to do that.
  7. If you cannot grown a manly beard, then shave. That trimmed, decorated crap is not manly. It is an abomination. Now, there are several of us here at Men of the West that have facial hair, and it is good and manly, if done properly. Here is a test: if you “sculpt” or “pluck” anything, you are doing it wrong. Either shave it all off, or let it grow like a man.
  8. Learn to deal with things. If someone hurts your feelings, suck it up. No one cares. The world is a hard place, and it is the very height of idiocy to think that your feelings matter at all to others. No one gives a tinker’s damn. So someone stepped on your twinkle toes -whoopedy doo. I can guarandamntee you that every single one of the writers and editors here at Men of the West have said far worse to the others. We call each other names, make fun of idiosyncrasies, and ridicule one another. We either let it run off our backs, or we make changes, if needed. That is how men respond.
  9. Lose the political correctness. It is anathema to a Man of the West. Here is a head’s up: it is on the way out anyway. The liberal elite may not have figured this out, but that is because they are idiots. The world has shifted back towards reality. Do not be afraid to call things for what they are. If someone is stupid, then it is ok to call them stupid. Here is example: in recent days, we have seen schools remove Twain’s Huckleberry Finn from reading lists because of its racial terms. Are you kidding me? Have you read the book? Jim, the runaway slave, is the hero! To argue that this is a racist book is asinine.
  10. Stop with the climate change garbage. Look, anyone who espouses a Christian worldview hopes to be a good steward of the resources that God provides. That is one reason we argue that most big charities are scams. Giving to the Red Cross is a waste of your money. As a Christian, I would feel dirty giving money to them. It is not a good use of those resources. Likewise, we are fine with using our planet responsibly, but it is a false dichotomy that to say that if you do not adhere to the climate change religion, then you are a planet hater. I would argue the opposite. Those people are insane. It is pure hubris to believe that driving your car will ruin the planet. Recognize this for what it is – it is a money making scheme. You really think Al Gore cares about the planet? He is making money, my friends, pure and simple. That is why every single thing he has spewed out for the past 20 years has failed to come to pass, and yet people are still plunking down money to listen to his moronic drivel. He is laughing all the way to the bank.

Fine. That is enough to start with. Do yourself a favor and learn to be a man. Stop with the sissy, effeminate nonsense. Be a warrior – a Man of the West.

Crying shame that today's males (not men) need to learn this stuff off the web isn't it?

Why didn't their fathers and other relatives and peers teach them this stuff?

Oh that's right, from about 1978 til now everyone has been on that downward decline where if you fend for yourself and act like an individual you are to be shunned.

If you haven't been punched hard in the face by the time you're about 15 you'll most likely grow up to be a eunuch and when you do finally get punched in the face as an adult it will almost kill you due to lack of familiarity and miniscule testosterone.

Reading how to be a man is like reading how to fuck, it ain't the same thing, not even close.

John Wayne and Clint Eastwood would never play video games. Not against each other nor in private.

Why didn't their fathers and other relatives and peers teach them this stuff?

Because not everybody had a father, ghost. Increasingly because of "feminism" and moreso because of the feminization of the culture, young boys and men have never encountered an older man to watch and emulate.

I never had a father because of WWII, and there were no other men around because the women who had charge of me wouldn't allow it.

Growing up was a bitch, and I'm still at it. But the culture of the '40s and '50s, essentially before television, made it apparent that there were better things to do than be a sissy, so there was plenty of inspiration. Kids today (anybody under 60) learned the world off a fucking tube, and sat with an open frontal lobe in passive wonder while all that shit was just poured into it.

Orwell described perfectly a world where thought was the enemy and surrender was the order of the day.

He was right.

Kill your television.

This is a good start. I've discovered that it isn't that hard to throw the BS flag on political correctness or glowbull wormening nonsense, or any other such "received wisdom" of the left. Once the spell is broken, it can't be recovered easily. I liken it to Ceausescu on his balcony giving his last speech (easy to find on YouTube etc., so I won't link to it). So yes, break the spell, call BS on the left, and be a man.

The Warmists are like those other apocalyptic sects that boldly predict the End Times, even giving an exact year, which we rightly deride.

Here's a quote I've always loved and admired, from a true alpha male:

"Pain or damage don't end the world, or despair or fuckin' beatins'..
The world ends when you're dead.
Until then, you got more punishment in store.
Stand it like a man.
And give some back."

~Al Swearengen Deadwood S.2, E.6

Get a better example than John Wayne. The big sissy just delivered someone else's bullshit, poorly.

Let's not forget male logical thinking. Men think differently than women,a fact that has produced the best of civilization.The Vinegaroons of Feminism cannot compete with logic.It's what hones their bitterness.

Posted by: Nori at February 5, 2017 6:38 PM

"Men think differently than women..."
And cat's are different from dogs.

There ya go!
If you don't understand those 2 facts exactly you'll not get anywhere with them in no time flat.

Back in my day doods didn't talk about such things, you had to learn on your own. I had to go through about 7 ho's before I found my keeper.

Guess what?
Keepers aren't found in bars or other social places. The ones in those places are throw aways, meant for using and losing and hopefully learning.

Keepers pop up out of nowhere and in the most unlikely places. You'll know a keeper as soon as you see it, it ain't like anything else.

Next week it will be 34 years that I've been wearing my keepers ball n chain.

I'm probably better off for it.

The poem at the top is colloquialization of Tennyson's Ulysses. The original wording is much better,after all, it was Tennyson. The spirit of the poem is something that every young boy and girl should have shown to them. The last stanza is "M's" quote in the bond movie SOUTHALL.

Skyfall, not Southall. Auto correct sucks .

A man received the following text from his neighbor:
I am so sorry Bob. I’ve been riddled with guilt and I have to confess. I have been tapping your wife, day and night when you’re not around.
In fact, more than you. I’m not getting any at home, but that’s no excuse. I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest apology with my promise that it won’t happen again.
The man, anguished and betrayed, went into his bedroom, grabbed his gun, and without a word, shot his wife and killed her.
A few moments later, a second text came in: Damn autocorrect. I meant wifi not wife
