I wish when people posted longer content to TRP that they'd use BOLD type to highlight their main points. There is no bigger turn off to me than reading an unknown poster's long block of text. Bolding main points will allow the casual reading to skim the piece and see if they'd like to read further, or just get basic value out of the gist of the piece.
I started the "Summer of Masculinity" tribe as a way to promote and review my friend's (legit high quality) book MASCULINITY AMIDST MADNESS, which is what I'll be focusing on after BAP.... but like all things, ideas change and evolve. Not that I'm abandoning book dissections, but rather that, I think, "Summer of Masculinity" is too limiting and only a temporary home for what I think is a more dynamic idea (and, really, my strength isn't necessarily in masculinity guruing)- so just know that this space will be used more broadly as we discuss these works- and after the summer we'll be moving over to a BOOK REVIEW tribe that I think will provide more space and freedom to host a wider ranger of content and ideas.
What say you, bros?
@TRP_Scepter My last post is BAP-adjacent, and I'm doing a breakdown of BRONZE AGE MINDSET, so it's not so bad to understand a larger bit of history. This will also cover the origin of Feminism, as seen in a much larger historical context, as part of a bundled and weaponized means-to-an-end to push the world further leftward, toward "equaluity" and away from hierarchy- and in this case, patriarchy.
This is a bit more along the lines of BAP-adjacent, but next I'll be writing on THE DARK ENLIGHTENMENT- and how understanding BAP's rejection of modernity is also a veiled rejection of the secular religion of Progressivism- a religion that seems to be getting more formalized by the day.
Here is RamZPaul's excellent introduction to THE DARK ENLIGHTENMENT:
