In the previous two parts we discussed some technological innovations and their social consequences, namely: HR, the birth control pill, education reform, and the ‘equality of outcome’-doctrine.

What do these societal developments mean for the economic value of the Western, autochthonous, ‘masculine’ man?

When we look at the statistics in for example The Netherlands, we see the following:

  • Since 2009, more female than male thirty year-olds have been highly educated. In addition, the proportion of highly educated women to men in their thirties, is increasing more sharply than among men;
  • In 2018, men up to 35 years of age were more likely to be unemployed than women in the same age group;
  • In recent years, the suicide rate among men has been more than 3 times higher than among women;
  • In 2010, the number of single-person households was +/- 40% higher, and in 2018 it was even 45% higher than family households.

Preliminary conclusion

If the aforementioned developments continue, the economic value of the Western, autochthonous, ‘masculine’, university-educated man will decrease further and further. He will be seen as an unhealthy, destructive factor, and will therefore not be able to build a career in the increasingly ‘feminised’ organizations – organizations that are increasingly working on achieving equality of outcome as a primary goal (also known as ‘equity’).

As a result, these men are either considered not to be economically attractive enough for Western women to start a family, or they seek their ‘fortune’ in countries with a more traditional division of gender roles (in which they feel they can be of some value for a woman); with the result that they will never start a family in their country of origin, unless they take their future wife out of her own country with a traditional division of gender roles, or move there themselves. Also not an ideal solution.

The flow of ‘cultural energy’

For Western societies such as the Netherlands, this means that the masculine energy that is analogous to order and structure (Yang) will be less and less present and that the feminine energy of chaos and potential (Yin) will dominate. The imbalance between male and female energy will lead to further (social) disruption, as an imbalance always does. The latter is a worrying development, in the light of the emerging passionate, hyper-masculine Islamic culture in Western Europe.

This culture (please note: the culture, not all individual people per se) does not share the core values ​​of our culture, and is only based on making its own culture and values ​​leading (as cultures are wont to do). Without a balance between a strong feminine and a strong masculine ‘indigenous’ energy, the values ​​of Western civilization will increaslingly come under pressure. One of the merits of Islamic/Islamist culture is that it knows what can be achieved when it values masculine cultural energy in a positive way.

A (cultural) recommendation

It is of eminent importance that Western society lets young men live in the strength of their normal masculine energy, and that Western society appreciates this energy again. The archetypes of masculinity (strict and loving fatherhood, responsibility, stoicism, the ability to protect the next of kin) must be reinstated and serve as an example for future generations of native Western men. This will ensure that the economic value of these men is meaningful, enabling them to find a partner and start a family.

In doing so, the imbalance that now exists between the female and male energy will be balanced again. This is of great importance for political, social and economic stability and growth.
