You have to decouple what the name says and what the actual organization does....abolishing the human rights commission? Can I please get an explanation of how this isn't 'legalise-slavery'-tier Bad Idea, because I know Peterson isn't THAT crazy.
The HRC is what you get hauled to if you say a naughty mean word or tell an off-color joke.This isn't an attack on the Canadian Human Rights Commission, I don't know enough about the latter to do so, or how accurate the wikipedia page is I just linked. I tend to be rather apprehensive trusting wikipedia, knowing how some of those articles get written. But in any case, look further than the name and stated intent before you think an organisation must be a force for good by definition.
No, people have a general idea of "god," it doesn't need to be a bearded man in the sky, but at least some sort of divine, cosmic intelligence with intentionality and purpose. An actual entity of sorts. By believe, one means "think is true," or in this case, thinks such an entity is actually instantiated in reality. That's what people mean when they say "real," ya dummy Peterson, they mean physically instantiated in reality in some way. Not some hypothetical, not some symbol or "archetype," not some metaphor.He's answered that before, and this goes to various similar discussions in this thread.
People try to box him in and pin labels on him for ease of dismissal. He doesn't let them do that easily and it drives them crazy.
What they want is something like this. "Do you believe it god?" "Yes." "So you hate gay people and believe in an invisible sky man that heals the sick if you prey enough."
What they get is something like this. "Do you believe in god?" "That depends on what you mean by god, and what you mean by believe." "...Fuck you lobster nazi!" Then the clip appears in a dozen YouTube 'pwning the libs' compilations.
>tweeting out and using Facebook to sarcastically bring up a video you definitely don’t care about
Not a trial it's an arbitration, meaning no legal precedent, no defense lawyer, it's just a committee of fat kikes taking random lumps of money out of your pocket. The fact that they are given extrajudicial power, and are funded by the tax payer is just fucking ridiculous. It needs to be nuked from Earth and any similar tribunal as well.Pretty interesting at 1:20:10
The first Canadian has been dragged into court for misgendering someone, Bill Whatcott, and may be facing a fine of $500.000
Bill Whatcott said exactly what Peterson said: "I'm not doing it!" (referring to compelled speech of pronouns)
Weirdly, even the prosecution frequently accidently misgenders the person involved.
Conversely, the defendant was frequently stopped during the trial for misgendering the person and was threatened an additional penalty of $35.000 per misgendering.
The creator of the video, Resurrection Europa has shared the details of this case with Peterson more than a month ago and Peterson has not called attention to this case.
He seems to have had a lawyer present:Not a trial it's an arbitration, meaning no legal precedent, no defense lawyer,
At one point, the proceedings seemed to veer toward comedy when Quail’s objections to Whatcott’s lawyer “misgendering” Oger during cross-examination were followed by one Tribunal member, Norman Trerise, himself referring to Oger as “he.”
Oh look I'm back on this shit heap of a thread slowly going absolutely nowhere. I did notice the god question though and it's a great example of why I don't like the rambling lobster.
A lawyer can show up for anything doesn't make it a trial.He seems to have had a lawyer present:
Is there anything that doesn't lead back to Jews?A lawyer can show up for anything doesn't make it a trial.
Rather than a trial it's a tribunal, maybe arbitration was a bad word choice because that implies an objective observer .
There's no legal precedent . Just greedy goblinesque Jews clutching their hands together waiting to steal your money. Also abolish hate crimes, and other mind reader crimes .
Holy shit I'm laughing so hard, I never made the connection, but that's so apt. Peterson's word games aren't impressive. He's not as smart as he or his fans thinks he is. Peterson: Renegade Angel indeed. I wonder if he plays the shakashuri?As a millenial man, I love being told I'm a worthless pussy by some 90 pound kermit voiced dweeb who gets teary over feminism in disney movies.

This reminds of again of Dawkins's The God Delusion. People, including Peterson specifically, criticize Dawkins on a variety of grounds, most of them having nothing to do with what he set out to do in the book or actual things Dawkins has said. Peterson insulted Dawkins, saying that he was refuting a six year old's version of god (which itself is bullshit, both today and historically) when Dawkins both specifically went out of his way in the book to start off defining in a general way what he meant by "god" and everything AND specifically leaving out people exactly like Peterson, who is of a certain type of "intellectual." Dawkins himself specifically says he's not sure what they actually do believe, but he's probably not addressing them.
Peterson needs to cut the crap, people have a general sense of what a "god" is and everyone knows what "believe" means here. This isn't a cause for splitting hairs. Maybe there is a discussion between what exactly a god is and what omnipotence entails but almost nobody in the world believes in their god or gods as some grand literary metaphor.
And these new Christian "intellectuals" that talk about how great Jesus was make me roll my eyes, all that morality was hammered out by philosophers way before Jesus was born. Jesus would've been impressive if he preached against stuff like slavery, but he didn't.
Peterson's not a bad guy or anything, he means well, but it's pretty sad that this is what we have to rally ourselves behind if we hate the social justice bullshit. No wonder intersectional left is only gaining ground...
The simplest way to stop looking at porn is to cover your eyes. Then you'll just be hearing it.I came across this little gem of a video just now.
Now before you watch it, I want you to give you a question with a multiple choice answer.
What would be the simplest way to stop watching porn?
A) Turn off the television.
B) Do like your mom advised and get the fuck out of the house and get a job.
C) Think about puppies and white picket fences.
D) Pay the good doctor Peterson $29.95 (plus tax) for a self-help course you could have done yourself for the cost of a few sheets of paper and a pencil.
Sound gud? Now keep your answer in mind before you press play. Have fun.
BTW the comment section is gold also.
