The Men's Movement began with the rise of the Internet in the middle 1990s. It was led by men of some standing like Dr. Warren Farrell, the author and poet Robert Bly, and Dr. Christopher Lasch. At the time, Hillary Clinton and her Lesbian/Radical Feminist confederates had launched a "Gender War" against the rights of men and fathers, and imposed misandrist policies and 'laws' that have cursed our culture to this day. The Men's Movement was a pushback against those trends. There were groups of lawyers, psychiatrists, doctors, and self-help experts setting up sites for alienated men to find their way.
Sometime around 2010, however, the movement became infiltrated with charlatans of the worst sort. Sharpers from the Marketing Industry found ground to sell their sleazy Pick-Up Artistry schemes. Soon followed junk science based on simplistic and reductionist formulas called Game; finally culminating in "taking the Red Pill" and becoming more or less a cult. Sites like The Spearhead, Chateau Heartiste, Return of Kings, The Daily Stormer, Vox Populi, The Rational Male, Dalrock, The University of Man, Alpha Game Plan, In Mala Fide, Captain Capitalism and a bunch of others dominated the Manosphere and made it the exclusive hangout of every imaginable crackpot: male supremacists, religious fringe figures, right-wing extremists, entitled Incels, chronic Internet trolls, and small-time crooks came to define the 'Manosphere' and did incalculable damage in the process.
Most of those sites have finally sunk into well-deserved oblivion; and the recent downfall of Vox Day seems finally to have closed the chapter on this disgraceful social trend. Owen Benjamin, Rollo Tomassi, Captain Capitalism, the Kurgan and a few others are still out there; but they were all mostly coat-tail riders on the more popular sites. Vox is still out there too---a shadow of his former self. He has a new site, but it's mostly an echo-chamber now with all his comments channelled into Social Galactic, a small chatroom that he set up which was supposedly going to supplant Facebook, Twitter, and Gab combined. Vox is starting to sound like the Kaiser in exile after WW1, increasingly irrelevant and while his Delusions of Grandeur get worse.
A few real MRAs survived the general crash, but most of them are based in Europe and the Anglosphere is where the hemorrhaging of traditional masculinity has been the worst. The erosion of traditional masculinity has been one of the most damaging influences given us by people like Vox Day. Against the cultural feminization of Anglosphere Men, they offered us a caricature of Manhood: being a bully, a poseur, an opportunist, a cad were all held up as ideals to which men should aspire. Our Culture reflects that schism even now. In America, men are politically and socially polarized between a gender-dysphoric, pseudo-intellectual, and hysterical Left against a swaggering, self-righteous, and hypocritical Right.
What you see here are some clear defectives: effete, perverted, degenerate, vile; men who've compensated for their lack of virility by amassing wealth and political power and now seek to lord it over other men. Some of them inherited both their wealth and their dispositions from fathers who were just like them. Instead of being an objection to a new Men's Movement, it is one reason why we most need one. If we had a virile culture like we once did, none of these clowns would have been anything more than creepy trust-fund losers whom all decent people would have avoided.
The one bright side to this gloomy scenario is that Male Nature doesn't change. There are men out there who are searching for answers. I see a lot of them on the Internet---not so much on blogs or forums anymore, but largely in the video community. There are a number of podcasters and vloggers who speak on topics of interest to men, and men of all ages are following them. Video has certain advantages that writing does not. For example, modern video broadcasting is highly interactive; and a host can discuss topics brought up by viewers instantaneously; as well as covering a topic for hours. They're not like the Red Pills with their top-down we-have-all-the-answers hierarchies. In fact, it was ROTC Media who turned Vox Day into Teddy Spaghetti.
