Exactly what is Jordan Peterson's political standing? He doesn't seem like a progressive conservative to me. The man wants fiscal responsibility and less government spending but at the same time is advocating this weird social conservatism which is waning heavily here in Canada and does not match well with fiscal conservatism in our current economic structure in Canada. People here are too indebted to have large families like this guy, at his basis wants to promote. It's not feminism or transgenders killing the traditional family structure it's high cost of living.

If you want less government spending it's not a good idea to keep pushing abortion restrictions. These types don't seem to understand once the kids are born to an unprepared mother or two low income parents it's going to require more government assistance (which types like Peterson's moan about. ''Oh clean up your own mess''). And not to mention the strain on the foster care system which is badly, badly underfunded in Canada.

But of course Peterson goes off on tangents about feminists and trans people as the problem destroying both Canadian and U.S society - seems like a weird diversion technique to me to keep people ignorant about incoming economic collapse.
It's not just high cost of living; it's also because having kids fucking sucks. And having a lot of kids fucking sucks even more. When sane people have a choice, they choose to have one or two kids because that choice doesn't wreck a woman's body, and it gives both parents the possibility of still having a life.

found a nice meme imitating both contestants (and also dave ruben). pretty spot on.

Still a month away but I am hyped still.

Anyway if anybody wants a thread for his fanbase, then go make one. If its good it'll pass PG but regardless until then just post them being idiots in here too. Just saying this so the next time it happens I get to bully someone for derailing and not reading my posts.

Its gonna be a shitshow. A fun psychoanalytic shitshow, but nonetheless a shitshow. Both sides will claim their dude wonned, we all know, but damn, just hearing those two in the same room is gonna make my brain initially confused, then explode.

My reading of Peterson is that he is basically a milquetoast conservative cum neoliberal acolyte. He preaches a kind of naive individualism which is superficially empowering, but one which in the end only serves to encourage passivity, and thus perpetuate most of the problems his followers turn to him to address.

His answers concerning climate change are a perfect illustration of this: he basically says that it is better not to worry about it and focus on your own life than it is to upset the status quo, no matter how urgently the status quo may need upsetting.

If the status quo is going to end in a hell of a lot of people dying, why shouldn’t we upset it?

I have never said that the status quo shouldn't be upset. My point was that Peterson doesn't seem to think it should be.
I didn't mean that in response to you, but to Peterson.

It makes one wonder, however, what sort of status quo Peterson is trying to get people to accept. The status quo of today is different from the one of fifty years ago - and why? Because people didn't decide to just accept it, but went out and did something about it.

All in all, you are right that what he's advocating doesn't solve anything.

I get the impression that Peterson values order more than anything else, and obviously anyone who is brazen about wanting to subvert the existing order of things poses a threat to that value. You can see this in the way that he positions himself against groups like progressives, the alt-right, and outspoken atheists. He never seems to go after people who extol the virtues of the status quo, only ever those who seek to disrupt it in some way.

He's a bit like a mealy-mouthed Buckleyesque conservative in this regard. He's one of those who will pretend that there is some profound wisdom in opposing any radical change, but then once the change has happened, will act like it was their idea all along.

Good point on Peterson's "non-solution" and I guess this is major problem with conservatives in general.

I remember watching some time ago a video by some conservative about why left always wins and there were some usual arguments about evil, degeneracy and all that and well I don't think that it matters at all. Problem in my opinion is that most conservatives don't have any "ideas", they think that yesterday was perfect and we should try to keep it that way. You can see with their slow shift from "gays are evil" to "gays must be protected from bigoted Muslims" and many other things that initially were pushed by the left. Once something gets established they start thinking that it must be preserved.

So you know, you can't win when you are essentially not playing by not putting forth any new ideas.

So he's basically a hybrid of a basic bitch National Review Cuckservative and a basic bitch yuppie Neoliberal...Sounds about right.

This is going to be the most untelligible discussion

Calling it now:

PETERSON: "That depends on what you mean by "and sho forth and sho on"
That would make it a repeat of his appearance on Sam Harris' podcast, where the two of them went on a tangent debating the meaning of truth for 45 minutes.

That's why I think this whole celebrity has gone to his head. He's a clinical psych, he had some good points about responsibility, since in this day in age everyone seems to want to pass on responsibility, nothings their fault, it's racism, or the patriarchy, or victim blaming. Then for some reason he's being asked about climate change and economics and politics. And now he can't help himself but sperg his poorly informed canadian opinions. Like just shut up, you're just giving ammo to people who didn't like you the moment they saw you.

Oh Jordan...For a jungian psychologist he seems pretty unaware of his own shadow. He started off fine, but overtime I feel he became more and more influenced by the people around him, especially his audience (And tbh I think the leftists he interacted with were partially responsible.) I think he has grown accustomed to their attention and that now he has it he is reluctant to go against the grain of the audience that upholds and supports him. For all his talk of the strength and virtue of the individual now he's become a banner for THEIR ideas more so than a free thinking advocate for anything, just another talking head on the screen.

oh boy he sperged big time on being uninvited from Cambridge.


"I wish them the continued decline in relevance over the next few decades that they deeply and profoundly and diligently work toward and deserve. "

Yes, Jordan, 800-year-old institution and one of if not the most prestigious universities ever is going to become irrelevant because a goofy 60 year old neocon isn't going to spend a few months there. lmao

I'm sure the people at Cambridge are shaking in their boots at that devastating comeback.
