Steve McQueen was one of the great alpha males of a now bygone Hollywood era. When we see today’s pathetic examples of “males”, the feminized soyboys, weeping Willies, and androgynous, man bunned, pussy hat wearing SJWs, we can only wonder if the decline in testosterone driven masculinity has not been some gigantic scheme by the Western globohomo elites to destroy millions of years of male evolution.
Just a few short decades ago a man like Steve McQueen was the epitome of American masculinity: fiercely independent, a true free thinker, someone who would have despised the gigantic, socialist nanny state for which so many of his present day Hollywood cadres so long. He was both a man of action, as well as an artist of the highest rank. It was rare back then, and it is even rarer today.
Anyone who has seen his movies knows that the world he portrayed is a world now largely lost. I say largely lost, because there are still some vestiges of this world, but one must look and search and be unafraid to explore. This was a world where a man was unafraid to take action, whatever the consequences, and as ruthlessly as needed, in defense of himself and the promotion of his own interests.

To sum up his approach to life, McQueen once said:
“I live for myself and answer to nobody”.
This should be the code that every man lives by. Few will dare to do so. Those who do will find true happiness in life. This is why the alpha is a truly rare breed.
