All You Modern Men: Prepare To Die

From the New York Times:

27 Ways To Be A Modern Man.

Thus when the modern man is confronted by a mass murderer in a gun-free zone (the only sort of place he will frequent), he cannot defend himself or others. So he cries. Often. He cries when others die. He cries when it’s his turn to die.

Evolution has found him out. The rest of us will be better off without him. But the New York Times will have lost a subscriber.

Via Instapundit.

UPDATE:  Indeed, “Americans seem to be losing their martial spirit, their tendency to run toward the danger, guns in hand, rather than submit, bow their heads, and wait for the inevitable to consume them.”

Like the NYT’s wussy “Modern Man.”

  1. Simpering pablum of this caliber deserves a thorough, decisive fisk Dick.

    Oh wait! here it is and Correia hauls the mail admirably…… http://monsterhunternation.com/2015/10/02/fisking-the-new-york-times-modern-man/

  2. I saw that. It is amusing. The only thing missing from the NYTimes list is a pix of Pajama Boy.

    “Americans seem to be losing their martial spirit, their tendency to run toward the danger, guns in hand, rather than submit, bow their heads, and wait for the inevitable to consume them.” — Article Update

    I gave myself up for dead in August 1970 when I raised my fight hand and swore to “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”.

    What’s your point? Would it be that there are too few of our sort left?

    Blame the vaunted American public education system. For deliberately training young people to be cowards instead of men.

    Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive. Easy to govern, but impossible to enslave. – Lord Henry Brougham

    These people are ready to be enslaved….

    That did seem to be the case in Oregon, except for one vet who attacked but was cut down. And it is the writer’s point at the update link. As for me (I swore my swear as an em in ’67 and again as an 0-1 in ’68, but I never thought of it as giving up my life) I doubt the wussiness is as widespread as the writer imagines. Certainly not in Texas.
