OneSTDV has lots of thoughts on how to raise boys in the modern world.
I think the idea of raising children without reference to the modern world is interesting. I’ve complained before that, once you step into the modern world, you become a progressive in many ways. You just can’t help but imbibe the progressive worldview and (particularly) language.
It would be really cool to raise someone with the mindset of an 18th Century nobleman. However, would life in the 21st Century really be all that cool for a reincarnated 18th Century nobleman? I’m not so sure. He’d probably walk around in constant awe of how vulgar everyone around him was. Anyway, like it or not, eventually the kid is going to have to make his way in the modern world.
In short, I think it would be irresponsible not to prepare him for this eventuality.
I don’t intend to even try to completely isolate my kid(s) from the reality of the modern world. I hope to create a nice, old-fashioned lifestyle in my home and let that example – set against the rest of the world – do it’s thing.
One asks: "So in raising our children, should we teach boys the tricks of Game and social dynamics, knowing that the corresponding tactics undermine the society we aspire to?"
The alternative to not teaching children about the realities of modern social dynamics would mean throwing them into the pit of the modern sexual marketplace totally unequipped. That just seems cruel.
