There was a mediocre article recently in The American Conservative about the enduring masculinity of James Bond. It had one great quote worth sharing…

That’s what a half-century of self-entitlement does to a society: it takes the backbone out of people while simultaneously giving them notions of grandeur. This makes them malleable. Make enough people malleable and you can make them, en masse, believe in any fancy or whim. Want to know why gay marriage is inevitable? Because today’s man, coerced into believing in his own emasculation, would introduce himself to a lesbian named Pussy Galore by saying: “I respect your lifestyle choice.” When James Bond met a lesbian named Pussy Galore, he slept with her.

James Bond: the opposite of self-entitlement.

The reason that liberalism gets attacked so frequency in the manosphere is that it’s seen as the ideology that promotes entitlement and emasculation. Conservatives are full of enablers as well, but liberalism seems to lead the way. If you consider that feminism has used the liberal platform to advance its agenda, this shouldn’t come as a surprise.
