Ars Politica - Ep14: Ancient Manliness part 2 - The Warrior and The Husbandman

Two most noble arts for a man: war and husbandry (war and women) (soldiers/arms and residents/laborers)

  • Achilles gave up the latter to pursue the former
  • Odysseus gave up the former to pursue the latter

Husband and Wife: Patriarchal Partnership

  • Husband leads, earns, produces, commands, oversees
  • Wife spends, provides, adorns, manages (Proverbs 31 exemplifies this. Feminists take it wrongly; she was managing what her husband acquired. cf.: Ruth gained status as the wife of Boaz.)
