"[Robert Bly, Iron John] claims that American men are possessed by a secret despair": they are "father-hungry". Modern working methods have wrenched fathers away from sons; worse, men have been made to look ridiculous in their own homes. "The emphasis placed in recent decades on the inadequacy of men, and on the evils of the patriarchal system, encourages mothers to discount grown men", says Bly. The result, he claims, is "psychic incest", whereby dissatisfied modern women look to their sons for emotional satisfaction."
