Do you agree with Bill Maher's mockery of American masculinity? I think US gun culture is degenerate [View all]

Maher criticizes men whose moods depend ‘on how well a 20-year-old kid tackles a 19-year-old kid’

Maher ended his show on Friday night with his theories on defense spending and his belief in a problem in American men’s masculinity.

“New rule: America needs to show it’s the home of the brave by acting like it,” he began.

Maher, who noted that the U.S. defense budget is larger than the defense budgets of the next 13 countries combined, asked, “Let me ask you: if a guy on your block was so frightened of mostly nonexistent prowlers that he spent all his resources on alarm systems and guns and cameras, so much so that he didn’t even have enough money left to maintain his home or send his kids to college, would you call him brave?”

I think American men are all out of whack about how to express themselves. America's sick degenerate culture is one symptom of this phenomenon.
