Mass Killings: Have We Had Enough?
Elliot Rodger was a racist. He was a misogynist. He was spoiled. He was neglected. He was sick. His parents failed him. Law enforcement failed him. Society failed him. Movies and video games are too violent and desensitize us.  → Read More
The Crisis in Manhood that Goes Far Beyond Elliot Rodger
In the recent and tragic Elliot Rodger shooting spree we can find nearly all our causes– misogyny, male entitlement, race (he was half-Asian and described feeling like an outcast), the banality of consumer culture, ubiquitous access to guns and undetected mental illness.

This was all speculation, of course.  → Read More

Men We Love: Ned Breslin of Water for People
Ned Breslin joined the team at Water For People in 2006 after working on water and sanitation issues for 16 years in Africa. In 2011, thanks to his taking the lead on making innovative initiatives both scalable and sustainable, he was awarded the 2011 Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship. Ned’s insights and experiences have been fundamentally enriched in partnership with his wife Lindsey, whose dedication to HIV/Aids, and women and children in difficult situations, has inspired him for over 2 decades. Ned is the proud father of two girls who were both born and raised in Africa and who, he told me, continue to guide him at least as much as he guides them. Ned took time out of his busy schedule to answer some questions for us here at The Good Men Project. Here goes:  → Read More
