Why does the US have the highest murder rate in the western world? Everyone thinks they're an Alpha Male. Too many generals not enough soldiers. As an Asian American who travels the world I dread coming back to the states. PUA and American culture in general emphasizes an exaggerated sense of self confidence and self worth. This is why we're the only country capable of producing both a Marc Zuckerburg and a Bernie Madoff. Only time will tell if this American led state of mind will continue to thrive. Coming from an economics background history has demanded fewer and fewer alpha males relative to their followers. This is why the rich keep getting richer.
