In the comments here this week the topic of how to really bring change to this world is to have many children. In a day and age where many men cannot even commit to having a backbone, the though of children truly terrifies some of these soy boys. Having as many children as you can take care of is important if we’re going to pass on traditional virtues and teach the younger generation guys how to be real, masculine men.

You cant half ass being a provider and a dad your kids should emulate. Being a passive, weak shill of a man will ruin their view of masculinity forever. You could argue, this is how we got to this situation in the first place.
When you decide to have kids and start a family with a woman, you sign up for a lifetime job. Some of you older guys here who have raised kids can no doubt say that even though they’re adults and we won’t coddle them, its still your kid. Furthermore, I touched on my last article how you can set them up for the best chance at being a man.
First, don’t just wake up tomorrow and decide you’re going to have 10 kids. The last thing you want is to not be making enough cash to pay for what having a large family needs. Things like space (rooms), expenses etc. should be considered, though I will say that it isn’t that difficult once you get past the first kid because you kind of understand the needs and can reuse things. (cribs toys etc)
Also while we can father kids well into old age, a woman’s time to do this is limited. If your wife is over about 33 it starts to get risky. I know there are a whole ton of other factors and exceptions to that, but it’s a good general rule of thumb. In this world, it may be difficult to find a young 20 something year old girl to agree or even desire to have a bunch of kids, but not impossible, for I am living proof. Granted we started young (first kid we had she was 18, I was 20 and it wasn’t planned) but it just made it easier to have more.
Now that the considerations are out of the way, we can talk about the benefits of having a large family.
If you’re leading correctly, having a larger family builds bonds between you, your wife and your kids. I truly believe that a kid that goes awry as an adult had something that the parents fucked up. Things like holidays and trips are awesome when you have a ton of kids. Hopefully, as you age and your kids grow, they’ll get along with their siblings and you have a network of people, bound by blood.
Having fun with my kids is one of my favorite things in life. You don’t really need much money to amuse them, and you get to know your kids strengths, weaknesses, and natural talents. Tossing a football with my oldest son, we have that archetypal dad/son bonding session. My daughter likes crafts, so building a popsicle stick house with her is really fun. Even my 2 year old brings me joy when he just wants to wrestle or play “tag”
Jaks recent article on legacy covered more than I could have ever wanted to say, but a legacy is how you live forever. Your family looking back at you and praising your name is things all men want. Even the smallest things you did for your kids can be revered if you lead them and truly be a the best man you can possibly be. You can start traditions and customs that your family will just adopt going forward its all about how you do it.
One way we’re going to change the state of the world, and a way that will have the most impact is to have as many kids as you can afford. Take time to consider the risks and rewards, but most guys here I believe could do it. It can be a very rewarding thing to build your army of children, and I encourage it.
