Bly: The Germans Would Be in Moscow

“A Russian woman from Kiev, whose generation of women have lived for many years without men their own age, said to me, ‘All the young men left after the battle for Kiev went to Moscow to defend it. Not one came back.’ She went on, ‘I know that women in the United States are angry with the men because they are too aggressive, and so on. We don’t feel that way. If the Russian men had not had great aggression in them, the Germans would be in Moscow right now. The matter of aggression looks different if you have been invaded.'”

– Robert Bly, Iron John (p. 156)
