Russian Boy

The way that boys are raised in Russia is very different from how boys are raised in the United States.  In Russia, boys as young as five years old are taught survival skills, learn how to use military equipment and are trained in hand to hand combat.  Boys as young as twelve are taught to fire assault rifles and some of them even get to experience real paratrooper training.  In the United States, on the other hand, we tend to baby our boys.  They become experts in skills such as ordering fast food, playing video games and ogling women.  In many cases, American boys never even learn how to act like men, and that becomes glaringly apparent once they grow up.  So in the long run, which nation do you think will be better off – Russia or America?

By nature, men are hunters.  We are not meant to be cooped up indoors all day long.  We were created with an inner desire for adventure and activity.

The Russians understand this.  In Russia, boys are raised to be strong, physical and active.  There are “military sports clubs” that train young boys in the skills that I mentioned in the opening paragraph.  The Daily Mail recently posted an article that examined one of these clubs known as Berkut (Golden Eagle)…

Children as young a five are sent on forced marches, given battlefield training, taught hand to hand combat, and how to use military equipment. 12 year olds are also taught how to fire Kalashnikov assault rifles and other small arms.

During the clubs regular camps, some children are given the opportunity to parachute jump during their paratrooper training.

When you were young, wouldn’t you have liked to have had the chance to do a parachute jump?

I know that it would have forced me to grow up a lot faster.

Self-discipline and maturity don’t happen by accident.  They require training.  And the Russians understand this

The club based in Zhukovsky, Russia, claims to provide military training designed to develop the younger generation of the ‘motherland’ – a term synonymous with the former Soviet Union and the communist rule of the last century.

The training is designed to promote a healthy lifestyle, good physical development and loyalty to their homeland.

Most instructors are ex-armed forces and have first-hand knowledge of the hardships of service in the armed forces and offer preparation ‘to young fighters, to repel any enemy’.

If you leave boys to their own devices, many of them end up choosing the wrong path.  We see this all over America today.  One of the main goals of this particular “military sports club” is to keep Russian boys on the straight and narrow

The club appears to urge Russian parents not to wait until their child becomes a compulsive gambler, drug addict or alcoholic, before sending them to the club.

It also offers their youngsters the opportunity to become full-fledged citizens of society and learn to ‘resist evil and violence, to protect the weak and the oppressed, to believe in justice and always be guided by courage and bravery’.

So why don’t we have anything like this in the United States?

Could it be that the way that we are raising our boys is a tremendous failure?

Just consider the following facts…

1. The average young American will spend 10,000 hours playing video games before the age of 21.

2. One study discovered that 88 percent of all Americans from age 8 to age 18 play video games, and that approximately four times as many boys are addicted to video games as girls are.

3. Average SAT scores have been falling for years, and the level of education that our kids are receiving in most of our public schools is a total joke.

4. According to a survey conducted by the National Geographic Society, only 37 percent of all Americans in the 18 to 24-year-old age bracket can find the nation of Iraq on a map.

5. Only 26 percent of Oklahoma high school students know what the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution are called.

6. Only 10 percent of Oklahoma high school students know how many justices sit on the Supreme Court.

7. At this point, 15-year-olds that attend U.S. public schools do not even rank in the top half of all industrialized nations when it comes to math or science literacy.

8. The average American drinks more than 600 sodas every single year.  That is by far the most in the world.

9. Back in 1962, only 13 percent of all Americans were obese.  Right now, approximately 36 percent of all Americans are obese, and it is being projected that number will rise to 42 percent by 2030.

10. The United States has the highest divorce rate on the globe by a wide margin.  This is ripping millions of families with children to shreds.

11. There are more than 3 million reports of child abuse in the United States every single year.

12. At this point, approximately one out of every three children in the United States lives in a home without a father.

13. Children in the United States are three times more likely to be prescribed antidepressants as children in Europe are.

14. An astounding 30 percent of all Internet traffic now goes to pornography websites, and the U.S. produces more pornography than any other nation has in the history of the world.

15. The average high school boy spends two hours watching pornography every single week.

16. America has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the developed world.

17. According to the latest figures released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, there are 20 million new sexually-transmitted infections in the United States every single year, and Americans in the 15 to 24-year-old age range account for approximately 50 percent of those new sexually-transmitted infections.

18. At this point, one out of every four teen girls in the U.S. has at least one sexually transmitted disease.

Things would be far different if we had raised our children differently.

We have removed traditional values and morality as much as possible from the educational environment, and we have taught our young people that they are just animals that are a little more highly evolved than other animals.

And that is precisely how they are behaving.

Our public schools have been transformed into government propaganda centers where children are trained to be wimpy, subservient cogs in a “Big Brother” police state.

We baby our boys, we don’t teach them right and wrong, and when they bother us we just pump them full of mind-altering pharmaceutical drugs.

So we shouldn’t be surprised that so many of our young men turn out to be soft, wimpy, defeated slackers that don’t have any direction in life.

They are simply a product of the system that we have created.

If we will do things differently, we will start getting different results.

Our boys certainly deserve better.

    Very well said Matty.

    And we will pray for your wife. May she see the Light very soon.


  • 9Matt4

    Hello there

    Very well done article. I was just wondering if you could do some research on what happened to SEVENTHVIAL213 on YouTube. Apparently, he has disappeared for several months. He did videos on strange weather and signs that happened around the Earth, as it would be in the end of days. His videos were very well done and I found it strange why would just disappear and not leave any comments? Has this happened to similar people like him? I would very appreciate if you or someone else you know can look into this. Many people are concerned about him. God bless.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      I have never heard of him before. But it is definitely alarming that he has disappeared. Would you happen to have any links that could point me in the right direction?


  • DJohn1

    Skill in computer games is not all bad.
    Most of the drone activity in the next conflict will be controlled by people proficient in standard computer skills. We certainly have enough people like that.
    Educating the next generation might be by computer as well. Certainly disadvantaged children with state given computers are doing this all ready.
    The time of military equipment like rifles might be over with. Future wars might be fought with drones and computer equipment and people driving them. Games like our children watch and use are full of violent interaction. Maybe our government has been training them for the future.
    China has a massive population. There is a shortage of women due to UN agendas and population control. So what do you do with all those young men with hormone problems? In the past, nations have diverted their attention and sent them off to war. Those that came back were a lot different personality wise than those that left. The population of young men was seriously depleted after a war.
    The real question about divorce is what do other countries do with young men and women concerning marriage? And why do marriages last a lifetime there and not here?
    The word commitment in marriage might be the difference.
    Or it might be the legal system of these countries does not reward people for adultry. Perhaps no-fault divorce is not the way to go . . .
    Perhaps an entire industry of divorce lawyers has been avoided.
    It isn’t just about boys. ALL our children deserve better.

    • Grizzly907

      Marriages last a lifetime in those other countries because the women practice traditional values and are not raised to be soulless whores like they are here in America.

  • Oldphartbsa

    My older son has been in Afghanistan for twelve years as a ‘DOD contractor with several “missions” under his belt’, with a wife and son living in a home he has already paid off. Heading back to his thirteenth year in Afghanistan tomorrow.

    My younger son is an Eagle Scout that is living independently.

    Neither has even gotten a speeding ticket and they are 35 and 25 years old.

    Neither smokes…anything, though I have for over forty years.

    They have no piercings, tattoos, or self inflicted scars. They wear their hair short on their own accord. They wear their pants properly. They respect women. They are polite in public. Their cussing is reserved for close intimates as is any drinking.

    My wife and I are the envy of most people I know.

    There is still a concept called ‘Parenting’.

    And, Obama, yes, we made this.

  • PointofVue

    Michael, I see two distinct scenarios in your article, one about government influence and the other about parenting. First, in regards to the government comparing the way Russia trains their boys to basically be prepared to fight. It reminds me somewhat of Switzerland and their men being trained along with having weapons at home. I do not think our government wants the males to be strong, in good shape, and have the ability to fight. It obvious they want to limit guns too. It’s better to have overweight people hooked on as many medications as possible, as easier to control.

    From the parenting side, it would be better if parents spent more time raising their kids, trying to make them be useful members of society, instead of letting the government educate them in public schools, or just sit them down in front of a TV. That requires work on their part and while there are many who do, there seems to be more that don’t. It’s those who don’t is where the problem will be.

    • Rebecca

      I think you are correct. If they can weaken the men, they can weaken the country. Don’t forget about the push for “feminism” to help annihilate any last shred of manhood we have left in this country.

      • Grizzly907

        The Feminazi, hates men, manliness, and masculinity. They want to medicate boys, chemically and spiritually castrate boys. Why do think boys are getting suspended from school for drawing pictures of guns and why they’ve banned games such as dodge ball as well as tag?

        • Nata

          Russia is a Feminazi country not less then US. Boys are mostly raised by their divorced mothers. these women subconsciously act taking revenge on their sons instead of their ex-husbands. you even can not picture the scale of this hysteria. this article is not a truth. there is no less computer games in Russia, than in US. I’m from there, I know

          • Hammerstrike

            Revenge? Hahahahaha, that is riiiich! I want the liberals and “minorities” to believe there is no collapse coming and be caught unprepared when SHTF, I want their world to crumble and falling down before their very eyes. I want the baby boomers to suffer horribly, squealing like pigs being cut apart piece by piece in some filthy abattoir, before they are sent spinning toward Hades.

            And I would want childen, especially my own children to be better than what I was as a child.

            Taught them lessons that would have helped me, fight back, that revenge is good, that militarism is good, that I have duties toward my people, that should be prepared and how weapon systems works.
            That they need to fight dirty and find delight in making the enemy suffer.

            I would definitively want them to be ready and know how to relish the struggles ahead rather than not, would that be revenge too?

            Lok at James Holmes´s mother, she took revenge on her child, turning him into a crushed sycophant, utterly crushing him, then abused him into insanity.

          • Guest 1337

            Yeah, but Russia has less divorces

        • Hammerstrike

          And banning the US flag, which even a 4 years old found to be wrong.

          I think this is going to backfire.

          Dunno about you but had I faced that much injustice and outright idiocy as a young child, that made me rather outright hostile and far less trusting toward teachers, society and its beliefs in general.

          • Grizzly907

            I absolutely despise public school teachers and my dad was no saint. He went overboard on stuff, but he was a WWII vet and so being an extreme hardass came with the territory.

            My shop teachers were also good role models for me and they were manly men. My personality and beliefs were shaped by them as well.

            I am not a big fan of the way society is these days, and I don’t care for most of the people in my town. I should of been born in the 20’s or 30’s. I wish America would get back to the 50’s society wise.

    • Dale Gribble

      Great comment. This is absolutely being done by design.

    • Hammerstrike

      Back in the early 2000s, the Russian “democratic” medias complained that children where given physical training because that was militarism.

      Thankfully, a lot of Russian parents knows better than to listen to liberal peacenik BS.

      Back then, fuel was cheaper in USA than in Russia, despite Russians being poorer and federation exporting oil to USA, China and the Zeropean Union.

      Putin really started as pro-western, thankfully almost 15 years of continued hostility and BS is getting on his nerves, he is is going to fully turn against the “west” if the current BS continue.

  • Rebecca

    It’s a cycle that will never end. For boys to become men, they must be raised by men. We have a plethora of dead beat dads, or part time dads, that aren’t involved in raising children. Women don’t know how to raise a boy to be a man. It doesn’t help that the vast majority of mothers nowadays helicopter their children to death, thus preventing boys from developing any sense of independence. Then they grow up and get married, and then the wife becomes their new mommy taking care of everything. I know because I live it every day.
    My husband is a good person and I love him very much, but his father is an alcoholic and he was raised by his helicopter mommy. The only manly skills he has he learned in the Army, but that’s not enough to cover it all. I often feel like I have a teenager at home instead of a husband. I take care of all the finances and I’m the one who works (out of necessity). He often complains that he wishes he was the one who worked and that I stayed home to take care of the kids, but in today’s job market there just isn’t anything out there so we are trapped in a backwards universe.
    It’s not his fault. He had basically no father, his older brothers were career criminals, and his uncles are also stuck in the lazy circle of manlessness. It has become normal. I wish there was something I could do to help him, but am I woman.
    For all the men out there reading this, listen to Michael’s advice. Raise your sons to be men and stand by example. Don’t let your wives handle everything, be a man and take charge (only psycho feminazis want a husband who is helpless). Lead your family, and allow your wife to stay home and take care of the kids, the house, and you. Live a simple life instead of expecting your wife to get a job so you can have that $400,000 house in a fancy neighborhood.
    For all the women out there with sons, don’t raise them to be momma’s boy babies. Don’t hover over them. Let them go out and play and get hurt. Bandage them up, send them back out to play. Put them in sports, let their fathers have a say in how they are raised, and most importantly encourage them to have one on one time with their dads, uncles, brothers, etc. Encourage them to be leaders. Teach them to respect women by being respectable yourself. Don’t treat your husband like a child, because your son will see that and think it’s normal.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      Very well said Rebecca.


    • Grizzly907

      I feel sorry for your husband. He sounds like a good guy at heart but never got taught on how to be a man. He seems to be doing the best he can given the circumstances.

      Thank God I don’t need a mommy (maybe that’s why I am not married,) and would resent any women treating me like a teenager. I can take of myself, and can muddle through my challenges. Sadly there are many women out there that like arrested development men, because they can control them. You are not one of them and I salute you.

      My dad was a hard, mean, and strict disciplinarian. He would tell me to quit crying, and be a man when I fell down and got a scraped knee. He went a little too far sometimes. For example I fell out of a bunk bed and broke my collar bone. I hated him for a long time because he hammered the hell out of me.

      He might of been like that because he grew up during the great depression, went to work at an arsenic factory when he dropped out of school when he was 14. His Dad was hard on him. He lied about his age to get into the Navy, and spent 25 years in the service.

      But I digress. As I said I hated it him for that. He passed away about ten years ago, and of course I am beginning to see why he was so hard on me. He must of saw what was coming down the road in 1970 and did everything he could to toughen me up and make me strong. I understand why he did what he did.

      I am not a tactical special forces badass. I’m just an old sailor. However I can cook, clean, and tend to my own needs. I can work through pain. I know how to be a man.

      I am happy that you shared this with everyone else. My dad wasn’t the best dad by any stretch of the imagination but he taught me the basics on how to be a half way decent and honorable man not to mention he was there.

      PS: There are programs and groups out there to help your husband deal with the baggage that comes from living in an Alcoholic household. There are solutions.

    • Guest

      I totally agree with you Rebecca. My husband and I went out to eat the other night and we noticed one “beta male” after another coming into the eatery. All the young men were almost genderless looking except for the scruffy, unkempt facial hair some of them were sporting. The women they were with seemed to be the leaders and these skinny, scruffy guys looked sad and lost to me. I looked over at my husband and said, “dear God, if this is the future of America, we are in serious trouble”.The women were dominating the conversations and these guys were just sitting there looking off into space. This was not at one table but at several tables we noticed.
      And I am with you, the men need to step up to the plate and be fathers to their children and the women need to stop being helicopter parents. Children don’t need to be pampered and not everyone deserves a trophy.

      • Grizzly907

        I live in DTLA (the fifth circle of hell. NYC is worse,) and I see the same thing. I am the exact opposite of those beta males aka metro sexual ninnies. I am all man and you can tell that I am a man from a mile away.

        I get many dirty looks from those women in DTLA. They don’t like me because they can tell that I’ll kick their crap in the gutter if they pull that domineering crap with me. I call them soulless whores. I almost feel like an endangered specie here.

        Those type of women won’t date real men because a real man would read them the riot act in a hot minute and put them in the place. The ninnies are arrested development slap monkey chuckle heads who wear their ball caps backwards, don’t posses any leadership qualities, are indecisive, soft and weak. The Navy toughened and hardened me up, as well as the challenges I’ve had to face in my life. Though I wish I was tougher.

        Feminizing boys and turning them into jellyback ninnies is the Feminazi’s dark dream and its being realized in this day and age. My dad was extremely hard on me when I was a kid-as I’ve mentioned in previous posts. He must of saw what was coming back in the 70’s and I guess his mantra was “there’s no way in hell.”

      • Hammerstrike

        Where can they find any good role model?

        They do not even know there are any to find, if they do they will likely find the wrong ones.

      • corners

        that behaviour is common with teenagers, girls being in charge.

    • Hammerstrike

      Actually, it can.

      Re-establish the draft, Hitlerjugend, take control of the medias, movie industry and schools (journalists, Hollywood mogules and fashion designers would of course be re-educated, given a new insights into the cause) and promote positive values like comradery, heroism etc.
      Make big fires out of MTV garbage and all the rest of the degenerate lumpenprole culture.

      Of course, history´s examples of great men and great leaders, their struggles and causes.
      The current system have built a great iron curtain of ignorance and BS between us and our heritage.

      “He often complains that he wishes he was the one who worked and that I stayed home to take care of the kids,”

      That not particulary well-thought, it would mean less time with his children.
      If more time should be spent with one parent than the other, then it should be the father.

      • Grizzly907

        Taking the flatscreen TV, the Mac, xbox and their hair care products away from them would be a good start as well. Making them go camping, hiking in the woods and hunting will also teach them how to be men.

        The biggest way to teach this boys on how to be men is when Dad is a man and not some prancing, mincing, closet case metro sexual puss.

  • Dale Gribble

    We can thank the so called “feminists” for the pussification of our men.

    • Hiroshi Yamamoto

      And the Fashion. Most of fashion designers are homosexual.

      • Grizzly907

        That explain why most of the boys (they are not men,) all look like mincing metro sexual ninnies.

  • Undecider

    I thought the boys were taught to ogle other boys?

    • timbroweraz

      only once they join the military.

  • Jeb Dopp

    Sadly accurate and true article. One angle to consider is the amount of estrogen that has been steadily increasing in our environment in the form of chemical estrogens from plastics and many other sources, birth control pills ( horse estrogen) in the ground water as it is passed in the urine and is not processed out during “purification”, estrogen used as endocrine disruptors in pesticides ingested in non organic foods etc. The most profound exposure coming from plastics. Research shows that not only are these estrogens wreaking havoc for lower life forms, they are wreaking havoc in our lives as well. They have the effect of feminizing male humans. As a matter of fact, excess estrogen in the womb at the time of development will feminize the amygdala. The amygdala is where our preferences are stored like what foods you like, what type of mate you find attractive and includes sexual orientation. This is believed to be one of the reasons for the rise in homosexuality. This as well as focused and consistent social engineering from our fearless leaders are at least a part of what has happened to the american male. And yes I believe the feminist movement was part of that social engineering along with many other destructive, detrimental “movements” designed to weaken and destabilize our once grand country. Thanks for the great article!

  • AugustineThomas

    I wouldn’t romance life in Russia. Russians commit more abortions than any country and many of the men are every bit as broken in the US.

    American men need to improve and so do Russians.

    Leftism is the root cause of most the evil in this society, including the corruption of the sexes.

    Do you want this lifestyle again?

    Very simple: go buy a Boy Scout Handbook, and use that to learn ‘man’ skills. Get rid of screens in your child’s life, and teach them how to use and care for knives. How to clean a gun after a day at the range. How to hunt, kill, skin, dress and cook a rabbit. Squirrel. Guinea fowl. Take them fishing and teach them everything, from bait to frying pan. Children have the luxury of time which can be filled with skills and memories that will last a lifetime. Instead of becoming a screen zombie, go outside and teach them something worthwhile.
