This clip comes from Dr. Harriet Fraad and Julianna Forlano's continuing conversation on Capitalism Hits Home around toxic masculinity, how it's fueled by undemocratic capitalist workplaces, and how we can move on from it.
"Forlano: If they were able to have democratization in their workplace, this would give them that sense of power that they seek, but power in a real way that's actually valid and useful and not going to be used to abuse someone else.
Fraad: It's power with others rather than power over others... These men have a chance to have power with other men and women together. But they're choosing this hyper masculinist masquerade of strength because they're made impotent on their jobs where they have no say, and in their country where the politicians are often bought. And they don't want to admit it."
