The strongest forces in this world, the strongest nations, are not those in which men are the new women. As I always say–and history backs me up–matriarchies never stand. And they usually fall quite quickly. This video, from last night’s ABC News “Nightline,” about Sweden’s most macho men surrendering their man cards and raising their kids, seems like an attempt to convince American men that playing Mr. Mom is cool. Tip: it isn’t. Sadly, a number of prominent American women–like Sarah Palin–have sentenced their husbands to the role, and the husbands have willingly surrendered their manhood at the door. As I’ve noted, Todd Palin willingly quit his macho job in the oil industry of Alaska–raising not only Trig Palin but also grandson Tripp–so the women could play man and pursue professional aspirations.
One thing to note in this video: the marital status of most of these Swedish couples is never mentioned. It appears that most of them aren’t actually married, and that has a good deal to do with the problem. There is not only no commitment to necessary, traditional gender roles, there’s simply no commitment, period. That’s another trend America has adopted and taken over, largely to its detriment. Sorry, but Mr. Moms to baby mamas isn’t an attribute of a thriving successful Western society. It’s a sign of its decline and ultimate downfall.
There’s a reason Bin Laden and most Islamic countries don’t have their men playing Mr. Mom. They know it’ll be the death of them.
