Our mission is simple. We exist to better understand why and how the collective “we” (us and everyone else in the world) create, sustain, and react to harmful situations of masculinity. Raising awareness to these topics that are normally silenced, coupled with honest and open conversation is the only way to effect real change.
Are there just a few men who exhibit bad male behaviors or do they exist in all of us males? Uncover the history surrounding the often silenced topic of toxic masculinity.
45 years ago, I wrote down that the most important thing was to know the greatest (eminent and good) people ever. I identified fewer than 2000 great influencers of world civilization and the betterment of the planet and had website devoted to them. David Crystal’s Cambridge Biographical Encyclopedia lists 20,000 notables of all time but most are not “great.”
I realized that extolling great individuals is not sufficient. Humans can be seen as a cancer on the planet. The male sex is the worse source of negative consequences since the beginning of time. And the cause is his Destructive Self-Interest.
