The evil in boys in the natural state of males, genetic. It is schooled out of us by maybe our mothers, except that being boys, despite the fact that we love them to death we don’t listen to them because…what male listens to a woman? It’s removed from us mostly by other boys, but especially men in our families, and older brothers and relatives, etc.
The men really come down on you if you stay evil too long. You’re supposed to drop the boyish evil. If you retain it too long, people get worried, for good reason. The boyish evil is schooled out of you harshly verbally or maybe even psychically. There’s also ostracization and being told that you’re acting like a boy, not a man, and that you are immature, and no teenage boy wants to be told that.
This is done because the boyish evil must be smashed out of us before we become men because otherwise all of us men would just murder each other. I’m serious. Boyish evil is not acceptable behavior for a man. You’re acting like a kid. You’re not a real man. You’re still a boy.
But more important than that, you’re being a dick because retention of boyish evil causes you to attack your fellow boys and men, and that’s considered dickish to asshole behavior. You lose friends after a while. And along the way, someone’s going to hit you. Men who are dicks and assholes to other men can’t get away with it forever.
Male society has a way of self-policing. It’s called The Rule of the Punch in the Face. You violate the basic rules too much in too outrageous of a way, and you’re going to get hit. Real simple. The only thing that keeps Man World halfway sane at all is the threat of a punch in the face.
Now that we live under Female Rule in a feminist matriarchy, this tool has been taken away from us. Try to enforce the rule and you get the cops called on you and prosecute for assault or battery. In the olden days, an asshole would get beaten up and get a punch in the face and all of the men who saw it would get together and whisper, “I didn’t see a thing, did you?” “Nope, not a thing.”And the guy who enforced the Rule would get a handshake and everyone would offer to buy him a beer.
Further, it’s considered bad karma. If you go too far, other men will also act like you are scary and evil, and will refer to you as a psycho. Even though I am definitely dangerous and can be psycho if you make me mad enough, I don’t appreciate being called one. Because in the Ted Bundy sense of the word, I’m definitely not.
The truth is so brutal that only someone with an Oriental philosophy that doesn’t care for pretty lies and has no problem equivocating and thinking in terms of grey and not black and white can see it. It is this: Women and men are both half good and half bad. To put in the terms speak of on here, both the Masculine and Feminine Principles are half good and half bad.
However, I believe that our basic bad side of a man is still there, it’s just that most of us put it in a maximum security prison in our guts, and we swear to never let the POS see the light of day. Nevertheless he does come out now and again, and it’s usually not good. Usually there’s an altercation between another man. If you are lucky if there’s just verbal fighting and threats, maybe throwing stuff or destroying an object or two. It very quickly spirals out of control.
Yet it does come in handy now and again when you have to try to kill someone, and for one too many men, that moment comes at least once in a lifetime. I can’t tell you how men have told me that another man or men tried to kill them, and they didn’t even go to war where it’s a quotidian thing.
And in an amazing few cases, friends have told me that they actually committed homicide. In both cases, they were mugged by male attackers with weapons on city streets very late at night. Things got ugly real fast and in self defense, my friends grabbed the weapons and killed the men with it. In one case they grabbed the guy’s knife and stabbed him to death. The other case may have been the same. Both times they didn’t stick around to find out what happened. They just left him for dead. And neither went to the cops. That’s a real stupid thing to do in a case like that.
