The guy is bulletproof. The breadth of his knowledge and ability to apply it, consistently blows my mind. His field of study and experience created the perfect storm of what I regard as the single most Christ-like person I've ever seen. He's the exact weapon that is needed to combat the ridiculous insanity coming from the radical left. It's so refreshing.

My life is better from his teaching. I've read the Gulag Archipelago and re read Man's Search for Meaning. At a time in my life I could get the message too.

Do the right thing
Aim for the highest good
Etc

Those are the most important things you can do? It really makes you wanna suit up and get after it. It's behavior you know you can kill it at, and it feeds your soul. At least I think so.

I thought that the video Para posted was kind of encouraging. They all seemed to be actually listening-- which doesn't always happen. For sure they come across as clueless, but bear in mind that they have heard nothing but PC jargon about "empowering women" and "toxic masculinity" their whole lives. His point of view was brand new to them, strange and surprising, but they seemed to be trying to follow and understand his points. That does not often happen.

That was, by the way, one of the most bizarre sets I have ever seen. Like it was designed by somebody tripping on bad mescaline.

And is it only me or are there moments when Peterson has a dead-ringer Hannibal Lecter look in his eyes? Big Grin

He and his wife have been to something like 200 cities in 2018, drawing big crowds at every appearance. He is a one-man counterbalance to the Leftist garbage polluting academia and the media, in particular. I hope his health and energy hold out for many years to come.

Lol, when I was at Peterson’s Talk a few months back, he acknowledged he sounds like Kermit.

The first time I ever heard him he was on Sam Harris' podcast. It was kind of a disaster, and he came across as a frustrating, little old man, by the sound of his voice. My opinion has, of course, drastically changed since then.

Would be interesting to hear Peterson's position to the above topic with how Scandinavian's culturally adhere to Law of Jante.




https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_Jante

Used generally in colloquial speech in the Nordic countries as a sociological term to denote a condescending attitude towards individuality and success, the term refers to a mentality that diminishes individual effort and places all emphasis on the collective, while simultaneously denigrating those who try to stand out as individual achievers.

The Law of Jante (Danish: Janteloven)[note 1] is a code of conduct known in Nordic countries, that portrays doing things out of the ordinary, being overtly personally ambitious, or not conforming, as unworthy and inappropriate.

There are ten rules in the law as defined by Sandemose, all expressive of variations on a single theme and usually referred to as a homogeneous unit: You are not to think you're anyone special or that you're better than us.
The ten rules state:
1. You're not to think you are anything special.
2. You're not to think you are as good as we are.
3. You're not to think you are smarter than we are.
4. You're not to imagine yourself better than we are.
5. You're not to think you know more than we do.
6. You're not to think you are more important than we are.
7. You're not to think you are good at anything.
8. You're not to laugh at us.
9. You're not to think anyone cares about you.
10. You're not to think you can teach us anything



Interesting.

What I like about Jordan Peterson is how he can stay so calm, and balanced and not raise his voice or start talking hyper fast like Shapiro. He is able to disassemble ridiculous leftist arguments with ZERO emotion, using facts, logic, science and statistics much like Ben but in a more appealing manor. Zen Master is a really good way of putting it.

The section on harassment starting around 5:45 in is a home run [in all honestly this whole video was for Peterson] the section about makeup even my wife was like - okay yeah objectively, his point is absolutely true and was something most never even consider - its usually a skirt or blouse, but makeup? He brought his A game [so now my wife can no longer wear makeup - I kid - we work together so yeah cue the music]

Peterson states around 7 minutes in I don't care what people particularly feel about facts - that right there is one of the very reasons why you gotta love this guy and what stickman428 said above is on point to a T - wishing I had a bit of that in me - but I'm a bull in a china shop - or so I been told

Jordan Peterson comments on Canadian PM, Justin Trudeau’s government policy of political correctness. Peterson’s comments reveal what he admires about the system of government given to us by the Founding Fathers.

I love the lo-o-ng pause before Peterson addresses the question.

BTW, Dr. Peterson never once calls Trudeau a “corrupt politician” as the click bait video title says. I will say, he could easily be addressing the Democrat Party’s “all-in” bet on Identity Politics.

From the video; "I’m not suggesting in the least and have never suggested that there’s no domain for social action. I’m suggesting that people who don’t have their own houses in order should be very careful before they go about reorganizing the world."

"I think that generally people have things that are more within their personal purview that are more difficult to deal with and that they’re avoiding and that generally the way they avoid them is by adopting pseudo moralistic stances on large scale social issues so that they look good to their friends and their neighbors."


Nail. Head. Bang!



Edit To Add: I also though I'd point out an exchange with a trans-gendered woman named Catherine McGregor. While she went off on a tangent about the legislation of things Government have mandated one CAN'T say, Jordan's point was that in his case the Government had legislated speech one MUST say. Even so, I was struck at this person's thoughtful (albeit wrong) opinion and how refreshing it was to hear a transgender advocate using polite, reasoned speech when discussing the topic of gender pronouns. Click here if you'd like to take a look.

Another excerpt from the same show. I just love how this smarmy bitch has nothing to add to the conversation and gets snarky when Peterson says that he doesn't understand her question. He calls her on it, though. Also, the turning away from him while he is speaking to her, to say some stupid, pointless shit to someone else on the panel. Ridiculous bitch. You're transparent, you freaking slogan-repeating robot. The way you behaved in the face of Peterson's logical and objective thinking reveals that you are devoid of any actual ideas or answers. Disgusting behavior. Do you have enough of a clue to realize that your stupid ass was totally owned by the man? You're just another leftist robot.

"Well, how about you phrase it more clearly, instead of just insulting me?"

She gets snarky and insulting because she knows she is defending an inferior concept against a superior intellect

We know that, but I really don't think that she does. What is so obnoxious about her is that she is passive aggressive and smug throughout.

In other words, I think she is really stupid. The genuine article. Peterson is, as usual, brilliant, but none of it registers on her.

Just look at the still on Para's clip, above. He might as well be talking to a potato.

You got it. She's not being smug because she's employed observation, experience and logic to arrive at her completely self-assured position. Quite the opposite. It's all about emotion and opinion. Only stupid people are that sure that they are right with nothing to back up their position.

If I were that woman, I wouldn't even be able to view video of that exchange, but then again she's a leftist, so she's far too fucking stupid to be embarrassed.

I'm surprised programs continue to invite him on. Same with Ben Shapiro. These nitwits all want to pull his pants down in front of their audiences and eventually get tuned up and embarrassed.

Keep on keepin' on, Jordan.

He does a great job in this verbal combat. With people like this it's hard to declare a winner because they don't submit to common sense or even fact. They'll just continue to "disagree." It's exhausting and contemptible.
