For my entire life, I’ve heard about the evils of Big Oil, that industry that maliciously controls the world by forcing us all to drive cars, fly, use electricity and make things in factories instead of walking, riding animals, chopping wood and paying a lot of money for things like iron tools. If it weren’t for Big Oil, I’m sure lefties in our major urban centers would all be content to give up the modern lifestyle and return to the family farm to shovel manure for the rest of their lives, but sadly they have been deprived of that opportunity.
But now we have another dastardly problem brought about by Big Oil — it is causing large numbers of young men to congregate in places like North Dakota, Wyoming and Montana. it is also giving them access to… Money! Oh, the horror!
These young men are interested in women, and sometimes try to interact with them. An advertisement featuring local Indian lasses being “leered” at by young men prompted the good people of our urban centers to react with shock and indignation. What savagery will the oil industry afflict us with next?
In all seriousness, it’s disheartening to see that ordinary young American men have come to be seen as a “problem.” Even more so that even the productive, hard-working ones are viewed with fear and suspicion. Of course there will be more problems when there are more young men, but the same goes for any other large group of people. I could easily write an article about the consequences of a sudden influx of young women. The title could go something like this: “New University Branch Campus Means More Young Women — And More Gonorrhea,” and it would be totally accurate. But people wouldn’t think it was a very nice or fair article. However, they recoil in fear when we talk about “young men.” What a terrible problem these young men must be for society. Why, we’d all be better off with a nation of old people, babies and women. As soon as the boys hit puberty, they are a menace until enfeebled with age.
We live in a very strange society that neither appreciates nor respects its young men, who are our future. They are held down in school, in government and even in ordinary corporate jobs to make way for women, then they are blamed for being slackers. When they go out and bust their ass to make a living, they are a “problem.” The only young men who get any positive attention are the few wealthy entrepreneurs like Mark Zuckerberg and the tiny proportion of them who are professional athletes. Ordinary, hard-working young American men are just a “problem.”
It’s pretty sick when you think about it. As I get older, I appreciate young men more and more. When I’m old and weak, I hope there are some of them around to lend a hand. I want them raising the next generation, making my country wealthy with their energy and creativity, and protecting our communities. I certainly know I won’t be able to count on young women to do a damn thing for me at that point.
