In Jack Myers prescient 2016 book, The Future of Men: Men on Trial, he predicted the current wave of exposure of male harassment, indecency and shame. He also uncovered the subtle and less exposed ways men suffer from the addiction of the negative patriarchy, passed down from generation to generation. He explained how this addiction has manifest itself through destructive relationships, abuse of power, deteriorating educational pursuit, political backlash and the tearing away at the very fabric of society. Myers pulled no punches as he “outs” men’s secret truths, sets an agenda for men’s recovery from the destructive patterns of the past, and prepares young men for the new gender realities confronting them in the future. If you care about the healthy fathering of future generations of boys and girls, you’ll read The Future of Men: Men on Trial, available at Amazon and soon in paperback. Here’s the full first chapter, published unedited from the original. @futureofmen @jackmyersbiz View my TEDWomen talk at www.futureofmen.com .
