Celibacy as a social status!

Celibacy as a social status!

The crisis in Albania has captured large and small, it goes further than the crisis of the empty spoon to fill the stomach, the crisis to survive materially as matter has essentially deformed the Man who from this empty stomach, and from the desire of being "invited everywhere" has replaced the food crisis into a manhood crisis. Today's men are not identified by their mustaches like men, nor by their hats and coats, today's men have a different form of appearance; it is little more than moralist, arriviste and nudist. Manhood today is no longer a respectful handshake, today "give your hand and take your arm" as the people would say. Masculinity today has been replaced by a lack of dignity, where value is given to those who do not care about shame, bread, and blushing. Having a social status in Albania is a daily struggle for acceptance in society, in public life, at school, at work, in everyday life, even at those drunkards' tables where people sing about brandy. Having the guts today to call you crack, ignorant and crazy, and not manly, manhood today is little more like the oldest profession in the world. The man today is no longer raising his voice for the truths, that the truth is relative and not absolute, it does not mean to protest; that protests are a form of "civil militancy" for personal interests, masculinity does not make you a professional, nor an intellectual, nor a man nor a woman. Manhood today hides behind the crowd, the dress, the ignorance, the chair, it is so material that man has begun to materialize as an object of gain. The Aristotelian golden mean today is not valid as a regulator of values ??and necessity, the golden mean of value today is weighed as the trade of the living thing. Trading for morals, faith, education, professionalism, homeland, life, culture thus turning the principle of right and equality into the principle of servility and arrogance.

Men today are selfish, narcissistic, and shameful. Masculinity has no gender and no norms, celibacy does. Celibacy is that state of comfort with the world and not yourself, a state that strips you naked of virtue and knowledge, and makes you a spectator, it is a state that suppresses the desires to be a good, knowledgeable and real man. Celibacy is the conformity of the crowd and the cacophony that trumpets: Long live comfort! Celibacy is a status that produces: illiterate, ignorant, officials, directors, an army of ignorant individuals who think they are right, and they are true. Having a social status in the Albanian society does not make you any more honored and appreciated, often the social status is a moral paradox of how you can be honest with the world, and with yourself at the same time, how you can be friends with everyone; without being a friend to yourself first, how can you love everyone, without loving yourself, how can you agree with everyone, without accepting yourself, but celibacy allows this. Celibacy has allowed the Albanian to believe that he is the god of the house, the land of the nxanun, the parliament, the administration, and even the god of the woman. But masculinity has shown that there are also "masculine" women and they keep their word like men! And this is not just a matter of mindset, but also of identity. Unlike "masculine" and tribal women, there are also "women" men; who unfortunately pollute society by sticking their noses where they shouldn't by dealing with women's affairs. Manhood is an act of value, and not impulsive, it is a strong conviction to fight against fear and humility, but today fear has turned into a modernist element that is sold as prudence. Today man is afraid of himself, society, the world, he is afraid of loss, failure, citizenship and education, and he chooses to remain silent against change. Albanians have been identified throughout history by manhood, and the word. But today, the collision with European, Atlantic, American, modernist ideas have put us in front of dilemmas: is manhood worth it anymore? Is it worth keeping your word anymore, when the word itself no longer weighs? Is it worth believing, when ideals are conditions of interest? Is it worth being a man without being a man? Is it worth being real?
