Do Politics & Men’s Work Mix? Episode 141, July 30, 2019

Curator of TheMensSchool, Jan Hutchins, returns to the Real Men Feel to talk about political discourse, men’s work, hallucinations, division, responsibility, and the shit hitting the fan. TheMensSchool is a public Facebook group with over 4,000 members. It is a learning community cultivating the deep sacred masculine in us all (clear, compassionate, cooperative, secure).

“It is part of being a man of the world to play a role in the experience you’re having. To take responsibility for your world and your life.” ~ Jan Hutchins

Jan is two-time prior guest of the show and we begin by revisiting a previous topic; Is life easy or hard?
Then we move on to the subject many try to avoid but has become too dominant an aspect of our culture – politics. Specifically, what prompted him to begin sharing political posts in TheMensSchool and what the reaction has been. The conversation takes us to hallucinations, trauma, chaos, and how best to chill through the showman’s shit storm.

Topics and Questions Include:

  • Revisiting, Is life easy or hard?
  • Suffering.
  • What made you decide to first share political articles and opinions?
  • What’s the response been?
  • Why Jan likes push-back.
  • Why have we become so jaded and cynical?
  • Is this extreme divisiveness the new normal or an aberration?
  • Do you have any fears or hopes around a Trump reelection?
  • A viral response from Trump supporters.
  • What might unwind the tension?
  • The corporate takeover of the U.S.
  • What might prompt the bringing together of people again?
  • Do politics and men’s work go together?
  • What is one thing you wish more men knew?
