“To be free requires cognizance of not just one’s unbeckoned volitions and appetites, but release from these constraints. And when you cast off your social and self-imposed burdens, you find and recognize, at your core, your most basic motivators and natural self. Even the most groomed beards reflect this primeval stuggle for freedom.”

Beard of Action: Sigismund “Sigmund” Schlomo Freud

Sigmund_Freud

 

Phallus.

Ahem.  Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, we are pleased to induct Sigmund Freud into the honored ranks of The Center for Beard Related Studies’ Beards of Action.  Austrian born Freud is today widely recognized as the founding father of psychoanalysis, an approach to psychological treatment focusing on the guided convergence of conscious and unconscious portions of the human mind.  Contributions to the field include: penis envy, the castration complex, the phallic stage, anal fixation, and other phrases we would not want to discuss with our mothers (surely an indication of something or another).  For his life-long dedication to helping Man understand himself, we hereby name Sigmund Freud a truly analytic Beard of Action.

Rearing a Beardivist #4

If a small child asks “Father, why do we grow beards?” the father responds “It is a far better thing to be the banks of a river than the rocks on the seashore. One can shape their nature, but only with great peril stand against it.” If the child looks unsure, remove all mirrors from the home.

“Though many men may grow a beard, there is only one man who can grow your beard. This is an aesthetic responsibility.”
