We Celebrate Fathers and Sons
A friend of mine and fellow content creator, Hotep Jesus, started a new tradition, #StrongDadJune. I asked him to give me a quote for the MuslimMan™ newsletter and this is what he said.
Culture gets co-opted and people simply complain about being subverted. Why don’t they ever think about their own tactics of subversion?
HJ and I have known each other online for years. I’m a huge admirer of his work and his skill as a marketer and entrepreneur. In fact I call him the “Black Thought of Marketing” and if you understand the reference you’ll know it’s high praise. And I promote his work at every opportunity, like wearing my Hotep Nation hat every chance I get. In turn, HJ has promoted my work. Years ago for example I was one of the early guests on his show Sharpe Conversations.
This interview was well received and we covered a lot of serious topics. I recommend you watch it because it’s as good as my 3-hour call-in and Q&A stream with Mike Cernovich.
Estrogen complains about problems. Testosterone fixes them. Only fathers can fix the world.
The name gives it away but #StrongDadJune is equal parts call-to-arms, protest and holiday. While the rest of the world is arguing over politics and the Target Tuck Rule, the men who take part in #StrongDadJune waste no time on that nonsense.
Here, HJ lays out three essential traits fathers must inculcate in their sons. Discipline in all aspects of life. Sportsmanship, in particular how to handle losing. Being a good judge of character, especially when it comes to women.
This list was well-curated by HJ. If your son reads these books he will:
Be able to protect himself from being manipulated by others
Be able to communicate his ideas and persuade people
Know the history of the human race in summary
Understand how money works
Understand how to protect and grow any wealth he acquires
Be able to control his emotions
This is the preface to my upcoming book, “How to Use What No One Else Has to Live a Life No One Else Can” which was originally called “Dragon Energy: The Tao of Personal Branding.” Tbh, I haven’t decided on the title yet. Might change it, might keep it the same. Neverthless, you should read the preface.
The Many Levels of Overt and Covert COPE Among Muslims

Marketing, content creation and building an audience

Polygyny and the hidden tradeoffs of the No Strings Nikah model
Parenting and marrying off your children as early as legally possible

You’ll enjoy watching it.
