I was recently recommended a book to read and review: “Escaping from Reality Without Really Trying” by Robert Jah-co-Bee, and I think the title encapsulates the state of many men in this post-feminist world.
It seems escapism is the new norm: don’t cultivate a life that reflects your values and joys—instead, work a 9-to-5 job you HATE and rely on that 2 week vacation every year to be your only taste of freedom—and I say “taste” because I don’t care how adventurous and daring you think your trip to Mexico was, at the end of the day, if you had a tour guide holding your hand the whole time…you still didn’t really escape…escape from the prison of your own fears.
