Your dad was manlier than you. His dad was manlier than him. And so on, for all of history back to the Stone Age.
I'm thrilled with technology, the Enlightenment and feminism. But with all those improvements we lost a little self-reliance, some ability to protect – some manliness. And no matter how many hoodied nerds become masters of the virtual universe, without manliness we're going to die as a species. Because being a nerd will never get you any action.
