"With manual labor but a memory for most
Americans, we have even fewer opportunities to enact rituals of manhood
in the way our ancestors did. The strongest caveman may have led the
tribe, but who are the masters of today's universe? A bunch of skinny,
pasty kids who spend their days staring at computer screens. Bill Gates
or Mark Zuckerberg may not be able to best you at arm-wrestling, but
they could buy and sell you a thousand times over."
