Abstract: 'The collapse of patriarchy is on our doorstep if not already in the house. Men feel this change deeply. Almost everywhere, being born male has made a man feel entitled. Becoming unentitled can make men insecure, angry and pathologically violent, as though they faced the threat of castration. How can men function without their traditional authority to be in control? Potency addresses that question and more, offering cogent alternatives to patriarchy and patriarchal attitudes.'
