I just stumbled on this Youtube channel today and am passing it along. There are some GREAT ideas articulated in here, giving us a very powerful message: sci-fi and fantasy stories help make us better people. For men specifically, scifi and fantasy make us better men. How does that work? Take a watch of this 20-minute breakdown on why Aragorn, one of the main characters of Lord of the Rings, destroys different ‘toxic masculinity’ traits while leading the charge to save Middle Earth.
The takeaway for all of us is this: want better men? Have them watch scifi and fantasy stories. Not only are they entertaining, they help us see ourselves as better people.
