Those who rule us seek to stamp out masculinity. Over the pastseveral decades their attacks have been wildly successful, as a glance around you will show. True, in some families, boys are still raised to be men. But when they leave home, the never-ending attacks of the feminizers pick off many, because in every area of mainstream American life, masculine behavior is anathemized and punished. Only those willing to pay heavy personal costs can defy this never-ending coercion. Some men resist, and some even reverse the indoctrination, discovering and adopting masculinity on their own—although without broader social support and traditions, such self-taught men run the risk of caricaturing masculinity. What we need is a mechanism for any man, at any age, to begin centering and cultivating real, well-rounded, durable masculinity. Fortunately, such a mechanism is readily available and teachable—taking up tool-based manual work.
A review by me of this book has been published in the outstanding quarterly American Affairs, to which everyone should subscribe. The first paragraph, and a link to the entire review, and the journal itself, can be found below. Property insurance is everywhere, but it is rarely prominent in the public mind. Its internal workings are obscure, full of technical language, esoteric customs, and mind-numbing legalese. Most people give it little thought beyond what is absolutely necessary. Nonetheless, as Hannah Farber’s Underwriters of the United States makes clear, property insurance is a powerful social force in any complex economy. And surprisingly, this excellent academic analysis of underwriting in the American shipping industry, up until 1860, has much to say about America today. Most of all, it makes us consider how corporate entities, and more generally concentrations of private wealth and power, can and should interact, and be permitted to interact, with the rest of the nation. . . . .

My recent appearance with Maarek and Bog Beef of the Good Ol Boyz podcast. We cover patronage, elites, what young people should do with an eye to the future, as well as much more. And, of course, we talk about Foundationalism. This one should not be missed. It is available here on Patreon (audio only—no sexy Charles on video today), [Note that this podcast episode is currently behind a paywall; it may be available for free later, but as always, I encourage everyone to spend a few dollars to support quality content, and there is much more outstanding content available from the Good Ol Boyz than just me!] (Language warning for the delicate.)
The people, they demand yet more Michael Anton and Charles! This time, of Ukraine, Canada, and tyranny in general and as currently being applied. I am again pleased to announce that The Claremont Institute, in the form of The American Mind, a publication of the Institute, has published another Special Edition of its regular podcast, featuring Professor Anton and yours truly. It is available here in audio, or on all the usual podcast platforms, or here on YouTube in audio format.
Now available is my (second) discussion on The Pete Quinones Show! We discuss my recent article, Against Counsels of Defeat, Canadian truckers, regime fragility, and the inevitability of Left violence. You can find the episode here in audio, or on other podcast platforms, or in video (Odysee or YouTube). You can follow Pete on his website, or on Odysee, or YouTube, and on Twitter. You can support him here, as well.
Now available is my discussion on Counter-Flow, with Buck Johnson! We discuss Foundationalism, Orthodoxy, and how our coming post-liberal future is going to be super awesome—if we play it right. You can find the episode here in audio, or on other podcast platforms, or here in video. You can follow Buck on his website, or on YouTube and on Twitter. You can donate to him on Patreon, as well.
Now available is my discussion, in essence an interview of me, on Third Way Radio, a presentation of New Frontier! This features Haywood in high gear and taking no prisoners, castigating the Baby Boomers, elucidating Foundationalism, and generally pushing wholesale change. We discuss the role of government in societal virtue, and the rejection of what today’s Left and Right (or at least today’s Republican Party as representative of the latter) have to offer. You can find the episode here in video on Odysee, or here on YouTube, or both embedded below. You can follow New Frontier, whose political program has many overlaps with Foundationalism and can be found here, on YouTube and on Telegram, as well as directly on their site.
Now available is my discussion with Navarra Confidencial, a Spanish news and opinion site! For better or worse, I speak no Spanish, so it is all in English. We talk politics, religion, and many other of the sorts of things one used to be discouraged from talking about. (You can also see the true horror of the Wuhan Plague, from which I was suffering at the time this was filmed.) You can find the episode here in video, or embedded below, with improved camera work on my end!) You can follow Navarra Confidencial on YouTube, on Twitter, and on Telegram, as well as directly on their site.
A review by me of this book has been published in the excellent journal IM-1776. The first paragraph, and a link to the entire review, and the journal itself, can be found below.
