My own opinion (for whatever that's worth) is that traditional forms of masculine socialization were to *control* violence, not create it. Violence is inherent in the human animal, it takes a lot of socialization to train the pre-frontal cortex to self-control. But they think that by describing the old way as encouraging/creating violence, they'll hide the fact that current trends in socialization are to create zoo animals of us all. Bound and caged and under *their* control instead of self-control.
