It’s time to gore another collectivist sacred cow. This time it’s the popular idea that the successful are obliged to “give back to the community.”
The problem is, in the absence of these old markers of maturity, guys don’t know how to transition from boys to men. They may not find the marriage/kids/corporate job gig appealing, but they also aren’t keen on remaining a perpetual adolescent.
