Addendum: Check out my Review of Hilarity Ensues (This is a guest post I submitted to In Mala Fide.Please read and comment on it here.) Tucker Max had the opportunity to be a spokesman for a generation.I couldn’t do that then.”“Listen I’m 35 now, I can look back on my writing and I can say this.This is something I’ve never really said before in public or admitted on the record, and I’ll admit it now: I didn’t realize this when I was writing it, but I think if you read between the lines a little bit, in between all the bravado, you can see a lot of self-loathing.“I knew it was inevitable that I would have to look into this stuff eventually.Male role models in pop culture are either effeminate prigs or clueless buffoons.
And I knew deep down at some point I was going to have to face them.“So many people describe my book as just pure id.This, not cheap frathouse humour, is what explained Max’s fame.His success raises an interesting question: Why were young men in the late 20th century uniquely primed to be drawn to a personal philosophy of unbridled nihilistic hedonism?A fair contract confers both rights and duties to each party.But the social contract that western society offers the men of my generation is so one-sided, it should come as no surprise that the smarter and more self-aware among us are choosing to abrogate it.
The American economy is shedding jobs in manufacturing, mining and the trades, prodding men into white-collar docility.
