The thing that I know we all strive for as a human is a connection with another person. Like most people who have to connect via text, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and other social media platforms, you realize it’s all a big show. Now, I am not saying social media is terrible, it is just an excellent tool for branding. It is not how you build intimacy!
As I look at the trends affecting our culture, I look at two bizarre and extreme movements among men here in America and throughout the world.
The first movement is the MGTOW movement. What is it? Men Going Their Own Way.
When I started looking deeper into the MGTOW movement, I realized that men are in a significant Sexodus from relationships.
Never before in history have relations between the sexes been so fraught with anxiety, animosity and misunderstanding. To radical feminists, who have been the driving force behind many tectonic societal shifts in recent decades, that’s a sign of success: they want to tear down the institutions and power structures that underpin society, never mind the fall-out. Nihilistic destruction is part of their road map.
But, for the rest of us, the sight of society breaking down, and ordinary men and women being driven into separate but equal misery, thanks to a small but highly organised group of agitators, is distressing. Particularly because, as increasing numbers of social observers are noticing, an entire generation of young people—mostly men—are being left behind in the wreckage of this social engineering project.
Social commentators, journalists, academics, scientists and young men themselves have all spotted the trend: among men of about 15 to 30 years old, ever-increasing numbers are checking out of society altogether, giving up on women, sex and relationships and retreating into pornography, sexual fetishes, chemical addictions, video games and, in some cases, boorish lad culture, all of which insulate them from a hostile, debilitating social environment created, some argue, by the modern feminist movement.
You can hardly blame them. Cruelly derided as man-children and crybabies for objecting to absurdly unfair conditions in college, bars, clubs and beyond, men are damned if they do and damned if they don’t: ridiculed as basement-dwellers for avoiding aggressive, demanding women with unrealistic expectations, or called rapists and misogynists merely for expressing sexual interest.

The History of M.G.T.O.W | Men Going Their Own Way
Men have gone their own way for centuries. Welcome to v.2018.
There has been much chatter about when “MGTOW” originated online as a recent social phenomenon, but one would really have to pull the camera back. Way back to Schopenhauer, Tesla, Beethoven, Galileo, or even Jesus Christ – if you’re up to arguing that.
MGTOW is not as old as fire, but it’s as old as a man’s first discovery of it.
Fire always exists – even when you can’t see it – and it only takes a spark or a bolt of lightning to ignite a blaze. MGTOW could be regarded as a reaction to recent cultural shifts, but the exact phrase “Men Going Their Own Way” can be found in print and newspaper clippings dating back to 1853, and spanning the 20th century.
If MGTOW is fire, then perhaps feminism is gasoline.
“For every action has an equal and opposite reaction”.
– Sir Isaac Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion
Survival and mating are the success model for animals in the wild. That’s the best they will ever do. But marriage and children are not the highest pinnacle of success for Men. Some 60% of men who ever lived on Earth never had children, so what did they dedicate their lives to?
For millennia, men have accomplished and contributed far greater miracles of science, discovery and human endeavor, and thanks to men like Orville and Wilbur Wright, man is the only mammal that can’t fly – that CAN fly. Man is also the only species that has the capability of deflecting an extinction-level event.

The second movement is The Herbivore Movement In Japan
The sensitive New Age man has finally arrived in the land of the salaryman. But there is a catch — a particularly important one in Japan, where the declining birthrate has caused alarm: The new Japanese man doesn’t appear to be interested in women or sex.
Away from the strutting are the retiring wallflowers, a quiet army of sweet young men with floppy hair and skinny jeans. These young men are becoming known as Japan’s “herbivores” — from the Japanese phrase for “grass-eating boys” — guys who are heterosexual but who say they aren’t really interested in matters of the flesh.
