Skill of the Week: Break Down a Door

Skill of the Week: Break Down a Door


An important part of manhood has always been about having the competence to be effective in the world — having the breadth of skills, the savoir-faire, to handle any situation you find yourself in.

With that in mind, each Sunday we’ll be republishing one of the illustrated guides from our archives, so you can hone your manly know-how week by week.

Kicking down a locked door is almost never the best way to open it.

Call a locksmith, pick the lock yourself, or attempt to crawl in a window.

But let’s say it’s an emergency. You’re in a burning house and you need to escape through a locked door. You can’t stand there fiddling with the lock! What to do? Break down that door! You know you’ve always wanted to.

No Masculine Pivot

No Masculine Pivot


There will be no pivot under the current regime.

To allow it would be to call into question the egalitarian lie and nudge people towards other sacred egalitarian cows.

It is ideology over competency. An indicator for this is that approach to sanctions causing massive disruptions in the energy sector. The Biden administration is not downshifting the Green Energy future in favor of a massive domestic drilling program. There is no easy pen stroke to allow the completion of the Keystone pipeline.

Current progressive ideology will not allow it. The closest America may come might be television advertisements glorifying the castrated transwomen lifting, shooting and defending the amazing American empire.

Men may be praised for their martial strength but only in a wig, with painted nails and neutered.
