Quote:
That all changed with his rise to celebrity. I am alarmed by his now-questionable relationship to truth, intellectual integrity and common decency, which I had not seen before. His output is voluminous and filled with oversimplifications which obscure or misrepresent complex matters in the service of a message which is difficult to pin down. He can be very persuasive, and toys with facts and with people’s emotions. I believe he is a man with a mission. It is less clear what that mission is.




A former colleague of his from the University of Toronto who lays out exactly why people like me dislike Peterson's views. An excellent read.


I read this article in full, and it makes a lot of sense to me.

And I completely understand why, given the things that are stated here, can turn people off of Peterson.

But that's not why most people are turned off. They turned him off long before this article was written based simply on what other people said... or because it's "proper" to dislike him. It's a team driven narrative. My "team" dislikes Peterson so he must be a racist bigot.




I can agree with the green part I quoted there, even though I agree that most of the people in an uproar are the SJW "gender shock troops" who were already targeting him long before this article came out.

I will say I think after he found some "celebrity" for the idiotic protests against him, celebrity has been bad for Peterson's intellectual integrity thereafter. He has been pulled into the role of "hero" to all the bigots & conservatards who want some intellectual cover for their own brain-dead acts of trolling, and I don't think they "get" any of the arguments he made any more than the outraged SJW goon squad does. Both sides love to ignore facts, prevent debate, and silence dissent - in other words, they want control and despise true free speech.

Far from having the effect of promoting (finally) intellectual honesty, the debate around Peterson has been dishonest & manipulated - and he's being used, not defended (or understood).

If the point was that he was defending intellectual honesty against thuggish linguistic culture-warriors, that's been lost in all the partisanship. He can choose to be an intellectual with some integrity, or he can choose to become another malignant and useless "conservative pundit" (partisan celebrity). Unfortunately they are pulling him into the latter, enticing him with more attention than he would ever have received as just another professor.

What Peterson needs is to disengage from the partisan world, not the academic world. He also needs the Fox/Sun News, Andrew Scheer, Doug Ford, Ezra Levant (etc.) types to stop leeching respectability from him and fuck right off. They're an intellectual cancer in their own right, and one gang of hysterical idiots being wrong does not mean that the other gang of hysterical idiots is right.

For some reason, I'm being very sharp-tongued today. And not just here on the board.

I can't imagine how placing oneself in such a small, specialized corner of the dating world could hobble your chances. Nope. Not at all.

I want to see it, but it's been talked about for so long without result, I fear it's stuck in development hell.

I saw a little breakout, not trailer the other day on the network. Can't remember if they mentioned a date. I wonder if they'll ever backtrack to SOA, maybe even all the way back with Jax Dad and young Clay etc.

Would be a good thing, maybe as a storyline with them involved - for example, if it turned out the Latino guy among the First 9, helped develop the Aztecs into a powerful group because of conflicts with guys like [young] Piney.

I Watched 'The Simpsons' for the First Time Ever and I Couldn't Stand It
How did you people put up with Homer's nastiness for so long?

https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/j5kw ... t-stand-it


Reading this SJW analysis is funnier than the Simpsons' best episode. :lol:

I glossed over that until I saw her call Homer Simpson, a man who almost single-handedly supports a five person household, a freeloader. Then I closed the tab.

I'll take people with no sense of humour for 1000, Alex. :baby:

The irony here is that the Simpsons is one of the most openly liberal shows ever made.

I bet if you ask her, she'll tell you she has a GREAT sense of humor. Then she'll proceed to tell you why everything you like is offensive and not funny.

I can't wait to hear which characters are most problematic.
