Where are the Boys?



About a week ago, I came upon a CNN video monologue featuring political commentator Michael Smerconish. This monologue went somewhat viral on social media for the video’s candid take on the poor state of young men in America. While I am no personal fan of CNN, I couldn’t help but agree with many of the points made by Smerconish in his monologue.

Right off the bat, Smerconish shared some startling information about young men in America. The Pew Research Center found that 63% of young American men (age 18-29) report being single–compared to only 34% of young women (age 18-29). The chart below highlights this huge disparity between the romantic outcomes of young men and young women:

This monologue brings us the broader point that I have talked about online since I started political writing in December 2020. The fact is that Young men in America are NOT doing well. Young men are failing to thrive economically, spiritually, physically, and romantically. Yet, the American Regime does nothing to help Young Men. Instead, young men are constantly mocked by the media and scolded by educational the system.

Young men are not doing well these days. Yet, no one seems to care. The Conservative politicians sure don’t seem to care. When’s the last time you’ve heard a politician talk about promoting public policies that benefit young men? Probably never.

Young men are being left behind, and it’s high time to do something about it. We all need to at least acknowledge that many young American men are struggling in many ways that are left unaddressed by our thoroughly feminist, gynocratic culture. This issue is not even a political/partisan at this point.

I just want to see young men succeed, but our Regime has erected numerous barriers to keep young men weak–from drugs to porn and video games to fast food. Just look at the offshoring of American manufacturing jobs and mass immigration over the past few decades. Young American men’s economic prospects over suffered for decades due to “America Last” policies regarding trade and immigration.

I could go on and on about this topic. But, we would be here all day. We need to have serious discussions about the plight of young men in modern America. Our society needs a mass of strong and intelligent, young Christian men to lead our nation for years to come.

Of course, I don’t agree with everything discussed in the CNN monologue. However, I still appreciate that other people are bringing this topic to light.

For those who are interested, here is the full ten minute video of the CNN monologue that I referenced earlier:
