Why Men Are “Going Galt”: A Review of Men On Strike


Recommended Posts

The perennial refrain is getting louder all the time: Where have all the good men gone?


Media outlets brim with stories of men in decline. While women surge into the ranks of the college educated, the employed, and the breadwinners, men are dwindling in all these categories. Theories for this trend abound. The Left claims women have benefited from the transition from a manufacturing to a service economy, while men have failed to adapt. The Right blames the follow-on effects of radical feminism and the sexual revolution. But in her new book Men on Strike Helen Smith offers a much simpler answer: men are simply making rational choices to opt out of institutions and social expectations that no longer serve their best interests.


Smith, a PhD psychologist specializing in mens issues, argues that society has grown so hostile toward men, both culturally and legally, that men are going Galt. Theyre boycotting a society that not only fails to reward but also punishes them, simply for the unfortunate fact that they possess a Y chromosome.




This is a must-read for men struggling to navigate through todays world, and for women eager to discover why good men are hard to find.
