I got this from Naked Capitalism, who says it is very idealized, and cites the behaviors of upper classes. OK, we know that doesn’t work, the upper classes are the most dysfunctional parts of the society, and the rest of us have become so as we have adopted their approach to families.

We learned by working with him, Blind spots like this and the lack of understanding of the basic cultural traits of hunter-gathererer societies are what allow idiocies like ‘toxic masculinity’.
