Men must reassert their traditional role in the family and society. Many of the social problems which plague us: crime, drug abuse and dependency, begin with the absence of the father in the home. Society pays a heavy price for the war on masculinity.

Dr. Stephen Baskerville, author of A Gentleman’s Guide to Manners, Sex, and Ruling the World, was the latest guest of The Dr. J Show, the Ruth Institute’s weekly broadcast.

Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., noted: “Stephen is a longtime friend of the Ruth Institute. He has spoken at our Survivors’ Summit and was one of our first guests on the Dr. J Show. Given the Sexual Revolution’s attack on masculinity, we were particularly interested in having him back to explore that aspect of his book.”

During the interview, Baskerville explained:

  • “Threats to masculinity come from the culture. We live in a culture that is actively hostile to masculinity.”
  • “Both men and women have different, complimentary, responsibilities.”
  • “The transgender ideology isn’t just wrong, it’s dangerous.”
  • “There has been a concerted effort to get the man out of the family, to marginalise his role.”

Sophia Institute Press, the publisher of A Gentleman’s Guide to Manners, Sex, and Ruling the World, stated: “Dr. Baskerville presents here the frankest guide to manners and morals ever written, offering you a refreshingly honest guidebook on how to become not just a man in the modern world but a gentleman.”

Morse added: “Men must reassert their traditional role in the family and society. Many of the social problems which plague us: crime, drug abuse and dependency, begin with the absence of the father in the home. Society pays a heavy price for the war on masculinity.”

Baskerville holds a BA in International Relations from American University as well as a Ph.D. in Political Science and History from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

He has served as Professor of Government and Director of the International Politics & Policy program at Patrick Henry College, as well as Political Science at Howard University.

Baskerville spoke at the Ruth Institute’s 2019 Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution on “How No-Fault Divorce Empowers the State.”
