Review Mad Blood Stirring

Mad Blood Stirring Summary ë 2 With a rare clarity and fearless honesty journalist Daemon Fairless tackles the horrors and compulsions of male violence from the perspective of someone who struggles with violent impulses himself creating a non fiction masterpiece with the narrative power of novels such as Fight Club and A History of ViolenceA man no matter how civili. Benvolio I pray thee good Mercutio let s retireThe day is hot the Capulets abroadAnd if we meet we shall not scape a brawl For now these hot days is the mad blood stirring Romeo and Juliet Mad Blood Stirring didn t turn out to be the book I was expecting in a surprisingly satisfying way Subtitled The Inner Lives of Violent Men and written by a journalist with a Master s Degree in neuroscience I thought this would be a mix of hard science and philosophy in the vein of Steven Pinker or James Gleick But right from the book s Introduction author Daemon Fairless proves himself a captivating storyteller and by focussing on the stories of real people those he interviews and himself he is able to illustrate male violence without getting bogged down in studies and stats although plenty of science is cited here as well Fairless may have gone looking for explanations for his own violent impulses and he may have written a memoir here than anything else but I found it all fascinating and relatable and a worthwhile read Yes I have White Hat Syndrome Yes I want to make the world a better place by confronting no let s be honest by vanuishing the people I find threatening domineering manipulative and sadistic But that white hat sits atop an angry head And beneath that anger is a twitchy and hyper vigilant person who is overattuned to threatening sounds in the underbrush Right from the Introduction Fairless explains that he s the kind of man who is always spoiling for a fight intervening with belligerent customers in stores chasing down purse snatchers responding to cries in the night He s a big man and over the years he has trained with weights and martial arts when Fairless walks into a room sizing up the other men imagining who he could take down in a fight this seems to go beyond the average fantasy he s hoping someone gets in his face Fairless also explains that his parents were hippies he was raised with limited television and no toy guns he was awash in feminist and pacifist theory he marched and rallied and considers himself a post patriarchal man And yet the fighting the genuine bloodlust In seeking explanations for his own darkest urges Fairless shares stories that illustrate the whole range of violent behaviour People who live in violent places particularly kids raised in violent subcultures have higher levels of chronic anger They tend to view relationships in a hostile mistrustful way They perceive the world and the people in it as dangerous and threatening And if they also happen to be carrying one of the environmentally sensitive genes fear and anger are amplified all the so if they re carrying than one of these alleles In each section in Mad Blood Stirring Fairless tells a big story about a sanctioned form of male violence and contrasts it with both the criminal extremes and his own personal urges In the first Fairless tells the story of a MMA fighter his training his history his experiences and adds smaller stories here and there from the male culture of honour from schoolyard bullies to frontier justice and begins to share his own history from his childhood as both the bullied and the bully to his own fight training As the book progresses the sections deal with increasingly violent activities contrasting an inner city high school football team with the kind of petty criminal their coach hopes to prevent his players from becoming a willing participant in BDSM activity is contrasted against a serial rapist the story of a cruelly manipulative parent is set off against a psychopathic serial killer the tribalism of sports fans is compared to warmongers and the higher purpose of a professional soldier Throughout Fairless adds stories from his own life and cites fascinating stats 75% of men have had specific homicidal fantasies Up to 50% of men would commit rape if they knew they d get away with it Chimps routinely organise war raids against neighbouring troops and it all works together to shine a light on what seems natural and ubiuitous the constant suppression of male violence that allows for human civilisationNow having said that I have no idea if most men actually walk around with Fairless constant fantasies of violence and sex the women he sees are all evaluated for their own uses but his openness and relatable voice made this a fascinating examination of his own experience More a memoir than I had been expecting it was the personal focus of Mad Blood Stirring that I most engaged with
