There is little doubt that the male gender role identify relies a great deal on the ability to provide, as a result the male identity is often tied to being able to provide for families and society as a whole. When the ability to provide is not there, the male identity weakens, and when it weakens on a collective level, societies that rely on traditional masculinity puts men into a state of crisis.
The ability to provide is also related to the economy. In a society that relies greatly on both consumption and finances as a way to survive, the primary way of providing is not through a job with stable monetary income. You cannot go out to the woods and do everything necessary for a healthy stable life anymore (well you can for basic survival, but if you want to go beyond that you are in trouble). In order to be a provider, you have to have a job.
The more jobs that are available, the more men that are capable of providing for their families. There is a bit more room for mobility without a degree, but more than anything else more people who want to work can. The more men that can find jobs, the stronger a masculinity based around providing will be.
As long as the ability to provide is linked to the economy, when the economy fluctuates, it will drag masculinity with it. When the economy fails, unemployment and underemployment is high, and men are out of work traditional masculinity will plummet with the economy, crash and burn. The high unemployment rates will lead to a level of displacement among those working, and put the next generation in an uncomfortable spot as they cannot be a “man” in the same way their fathers and grandfathers were. When the economy fails, men go through an identity crisis.
Clearly we have a problem here, this simply adds insult to injury of a failing economy. There are a few solutions. The first is to have providing not based on having a job. This really won’t work
The new feminism (second wave [the radicals]) who have to be a part of everything male while acting in a misandric fashion are creating a sadistic Matriarchy across the globe. If Men and women split everything 50/50 and women get 50% of the man’s 50 and 7/8ths of the remaining twenty five percent as special entitlements that equals 97.25% - maybe that is why females make the majority of retail purchases.
I can envision men reading this crossing their legs, wringing their hands uncomfortably, almost whining: I hope they read the rest of this, check out the links, STOP, breathe and then reflect: the truth is in the studies. We have for decades lazily subscribed to urban myth even though lies have been proven and dispelled: Warshak Apparently the Jewish community is concerned with a dwindling male membership The end of Jewish Men are not the Protestant and Catholic Communities facing the same situation?
Not all single mothers are sadistic but images of Britney, Lindsey and Casey should wake us up a little simply look up female violence on You Tube . “‘Oh say it is not true” exclaim the gentlemen twisting in their seats, perhaps, but this material is not made up Bringing Attention to Abuse By Females it is true; Google has tried to censor such material as hate speech preferring homosexual friendly comments (sorry their editorial preference and a true statement simply ask bloggers).
All mothers probably are not that violent despite the ones we have seen grabbing their children by the arm in the grocery store, we do know (even if we are afraid to discuss it) at least some moms utilize the electronic babysitter, we have been talking about it for decades, but could it lead to this: Should parents of obese kids lose custody? We know Fathers petition Courts for custody, joint custody, shared custody, parenting time, access to their children everyday, and, everyday leave the Court Room broken hearted despite the evidence demonstrating the criticality

Quote from Richard Below is an article that appeared in the Sunday Express (17/7/11).
There is no doubt that “official state policy” in the UK was to take children forcibly from families on a pretext to meet quotas set for adoption.
In this process, one can only wonder how psychologists “rubber stamped” such actions. For me the question is how could psychologists and social workers, en mass and consciously implement such a policy? Where there any voice of discontent, or were ALL psychologists blindly implementing such policy in the UK? Express.co.uk - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express | UK News :: 10,000 children ripped from their families 10,000 CHILDREN RIPPED FROM THEIR FAMILIES
Sunday July 17,2011
By Ted Jeory AT LEAST 10,000 young children have been dragged from their families and needlessly adopted due to a flawed target at the heart of Government, it was claimed last night.
Vulnerable children were handed over in their thousands under a New Labour crusade driven by artificial adoption targets.
A top Oxford academic yesterday branded the policy as Tony Blair’s worst mistake.
The expert in social work who did not want to be named said: “Forget the Iraq War. “Blair’s adoption target was the reason I left the Labour party.” Last night backing came from MP John Hemming, who said the policy led to the unnecessary adoption of 1,000 children every year.
He claims the target set 11 years ago was flawed from the outset because it contained a fundamental error of maths and he has called for a full Parliamentary inquiry to prevent further damage. One victim who had a 15-month-old baby taken from her and two siblings broke down in tears as she told her story to the Sunday Express, saying: “When you’re reliving it like this, it’s still as raw as the day it happened.
The left-leaning United Church of Christ now wants to be even more politically correct, and to do so its deliberative body has replaced the reference to “Heavenly Father” with the gender neutral term, “triune God,” in the denomination’s constitution.
Regardless that "Heavenly Father" was the term used by Christ Himself to describe God... and this church is of Christ...
Full story is here.
Pastors work to preach beyond the choir, I wonder sometimes if Fathers reach out beyond the choir as well: the choir already knowing the verses to the song.
The Church (as a group) reach out in their benevolence helping their Brothers and sisters, especially poor families (such as single mother homes with undisclosed income). The Church seems also to be a protector of everyone's rights, again especially the rights of downtrodden women.
If we do not educate our church going Brothers and Pastors, most probably they truly, think that they are indeed doing good. Fathers have a job to do in spreading the word, even in Churches. I wonder if the good Pastors truly see this as Godly behavior: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032072

When I first started this adventure I lamented the lack of a structured core of ideas and organization in what I described as the Men's Rights Movement. I vaguely remember my first thought being "Isn't anyone doing anything other than talking? If I could get in there I could change the game!"
But first I had to study. I had to know more in order to develop an organizational technique that would help propel the movement forward.
Now that I know the "how's" and "why's" of both sides of the coin, it seems my education is still not complete. Fortunately it is an education that that can be picked up as I begin to move away from the books, and into the community at large.
Believe me when I say over the last twenty-four hours I have been schooled by my peers. It seems my blog description was aptly chosen, but certainly not for the reasons I had initially thought. Call it an accidental success. I hate accidental successes........
I have been told that the while the idea of a central organization seems sound, that in fact there is no such thing, nor should there be. There are too many fronts to fight on in order for one organization to keep track of what is happening (without having a governmental budget anyway). Instead what we have is something akin to a Hydra. Each head works autonomously, performs it's task, and moves onto the next task. Heads will sometimes help each other....and the necks seem to lead back to an IDEA....not an organization. It keeps everything fluid...adaptable to the changing nature of the battlefield.
Fortunately, I have the time to place into the MRM. Thus, I will begin some workings with online activism. This may keep me from blogging for a while, but once I have results, I will share them.
Sex, money… …and national bankruptcies This is a discussion about three hundred and thirty-six billion dollars, money we do not have and money we can save, this is going to take longer than fifteen seconds probably even longer than five minutes, please use the links and review the material: an informed discussion is the best one.
Males and females have disagreements and males and females both say “it is my way or the highway”, in relationships involving children though, most Fathers hear “I’m hitting the highway and I’m taking the kids”. State, local and the federal government are right there to join the argument in saying “the kids go with mom”.
Various political interests present “power and control” in a variety of ways:
Duluth presents power and control over females here: http://theduluthmodel.org/wheelgallery.php
West Michigan DAD presents power and control over males here: http://westmichigandad.wordpress.com/2011/05/06/40/

Perhaps we need to enter relationships in a truthful manner without expectation of changing one another, and, expecting to honestly know one another. “President Obama grew up without his dad, and has said that being a father is the most important job he has. Fatherlessness is a growing crisis in America, one that undergirds many of the challenges that families are facing. When dads aren't around, young people are more likely to drop out of school, use drugs, be involved in the criminal justice system, and become young parents themselves.” http://www.fatherhood.gov/pledge We can not promote Fatherhood by denigrating Fathers. We can not promote Fatherhood by incentivizing single motherhood. We can not solve all of our neighbor’s arguments.
Quote from Richard Mail on Sunday http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2015564/Clares-law-After-mothers-brutal-murder-women-right-check-abusive-partners-criminal-records.html Clare's law: After mother's brutal murder, women to get right to check abusive partners' criminal records Last updated at 10:51 PM on 16th July 2011 Women who use the internet to seek boyfriends will win the right to force the police to reveal if they have a history of violence under plans being considered by Home Secretary Theresa May. The controversial move is in response to fears that the growing phenomenon of internet dating means more and more women are going out with men whose backgrounds they know little about. The proposal has been called ‘Clare’s Law’, after the horrific killing of 36-year-old mother Clare Wood by a man she met on Facebook. George Appleton strangled Ms Wood and set her body on fire before hanging himself. Friends and family were shocked to discover that the killer had a history of violence against women, including repeated harassment, threats and the kidnapping at knifepoint of one of his other ex-girlfriends. A Clare’s Law campaign is to be launched tomorrow. It is modelled on Sarah’s Law’, the successful fight to give parents the right to check on paedophiles in their area after the murder of schoolgirl Sarah Payne. In a letter seen by The Mail on Sunday, Mrs May indicates she is considering introducing Clare’s Law and will make an announcement in the next few weeks. She says: ‘Tackling violence against women and girls is a priority for this Government.’ However, some believe the well-intentioned plan could jeopardise civil liberties. Tory MP Robert Buckland, a member of the Commons Justice Committee, said: ‘We’re all in favour of curbing violence against women but
Guests, members we have been traveling for decades to this point. Please write a letter to President Obama, your Congressman your Senators, your state and local elected people.
Ask your friends to do so. We can not promote fatherhood by denigrating fathers. We can not promote fatherhood by incentivizing single motherhood.
Savings is gone, child obesity is now a problem. The electronic baby-sitter is dragging children’s learning down.

rom a young age boys are taught to persevere and to win. Boys are told stories with a message you should fight against all odds and attempt to gain the glory you desire. Stories of fantastic knights (often also upholding the valiant code of chivalry) who slay dragons sit in the minds of youth. Gladiators and conquerors who reign supreme as they fight for what all that is right in the world and defending the people in the local village. Rock stars and champion athletes hold the attention of the world as people scream their names in excitement. These are who we are shown to look up to.
No child is without a glorious hero whose name will go down in legend, and almost every child dreams of being the person who would fight for such things no matter what the cost.
When a young boy is on the merge of collapsing, he is told to hold it in, endure the pain and keep going. The cheerleaders keep on screaming his name, despite his injury. The princess is waiting behind the beasts, as you fight for freedom and justice to save the world around you. That is what victory gets you! Fame! Glory! Power! The love of the people! You are a hero in their eyes and will live on as a god amongst men.
Of course from the knight in shining armor, to the football star, to the brave soldier we also see a sad story in the background. The thousandth knight to face the dragon, the last hope of the football team, and the mighty soldier who saves the day also share something else in common. They are the last to take the challenge. They aren’t as special as much special, as they are the next in line to go against impossible odds. If they fail then someone else will come forth to take their place. Whether it be a pompous fool to fight the beast, the next season’s quarterback, or the infantry reserves-they aren’t the only hope that theyt have been made out to be.
No, in reality they are simply tools. Tools of society. And while
