Documentary: A Glitch in the Matrix (David Fuller production)

Sometimes there’s a glitch in the matrix where the limitations of the old operating system are laid bare and something new pokes through They’ve been dozens of responses to the jordan peterson channel for interview already. What makes this one different? Well, I have a pretty unique perspective in October last year I went to Toronto to interview Jordan Peterson at his home you came in from where I came in from London last night, I turned the interview into the first full-length documentary about Jordan Peterson’s ideas I Was pretty sure he’d soon become a lot more famous and be recognized as one of the most significant public thinkers but I couldn’t possibly have predicted how he’d break through to a mass audience a few weeks later Peterson did an interview with journalist Kathy Newman on Channel four News in the UK a Program I worked on as a reporter and producer for ten years It was a sensation Millions watched it online Tens of thousands commented an overwhelming majority felt Peterson had been unfairly represented And in the week since it hasn’t stopped Peterson has been asked about it constantly on the most high-profile online shows 12 rules for life so without reading this So what you’re saying is There’s only 12 things you need to do in life right, that’s it well yeah this This interview that you just did with this woman Kathy Newman shit was that in the UK it was Channel 4 UK so what does this glitch say about the state of mainstream media and the culture at large By diagnosis of what’s actually happening is that people are moving further and further away from? what is what thinking actually is I’m at or more into merely running a script and What does Jordan Peterson actually think that’s so controversial you are? misrepresented more than anyone I know in a weird way. You are villainized in a weird way where I can’t believe that these people are honestly looking at your opinions and Coming up with these conclusions. I believe this encounter struck such a nerve because it’s a cultural watershed moment But seen properly as Peterson would say it’s archetypal in that it contains layers and layers of meaning That go right to the heart of the biggest rift. We’re seeing playing out in the culture Over the next 50 minutes. I’m gonna do my best to unpack it From the clash between new and old media. There’s also why YouTube is gonna kill TV Because television by its nature all of these narrow broadcast technologies they rely on forcing the story all the way down to the mythological an Archetypal level I thought of ideologies as fragmentary mythologies That’s where they get their archetypal and psychological power, but in the postmodern world and this seems to be something that’s increasingly Seeping out into the culture at large you have nothing but the tyrannical father nothing But the destructive force of masculine consciousness and nothing, but the benevolent Benevolent great mother and it’s a it’s an appalling ideology, and it seems to me that it’s sucking the vitality Which is exactly what you’d expect symbolically It’s sucking the vitality of her culture and to ask how do we move forward constructively rather than just adding to the polarization? I’ve been a journalist for 16 years in the newsrooms of the BBC in channel 4 and then making documentaries I moved away from the frontline of news some time ago and started learning psychology Which is what first drew me to Jordan Peterson? from a distance I’ve started to see the blind spots of the establishment media much more clearly I Spent some of the best years of my working life at Channel 4 News and have a huge amount of respect And gratitude to the program But I’m making this film because I feel so strongly that if we can’t have open conversations about the kind of topics Peterson is raising We’re in serious trouble My book went up to number two and on amazon.com in the US the next day right it’s number one in Canada it’s number three in the UK all on Amazon I Couldn’t have asked for more publicity right and so I could also be sitting back and saying well. You know she tried to My a person who regarded herself as my ideological opponent Tried to go after my philosophy and my reputation on national TV Failed brutally and has been taken apart for it. It’s like This is a good day, but I don’t regard it as a good day. I don’t think it’s a good day I think that it’s evidence of the Instability of the times that we’re in it would have been much better For me and for everyone else if what we would have had was a real conversation You said that it’s actually a sign of the times where things could go really wrong for all of us really soon Yeah, we’re playing with fire. Yeah, what do you mean by this? Can you can you elaborate? Well things go wrong in cultures all the time right you get you get the polarization Increases until people start to act it out Peterson is one of a new breed of thinkers made famous almost completely by the internet not the broadcast media Part of a powerful new informal network being called the intellectual dark web The mainstream media is based on an old dying model that is being replaced by new media And new technology so quickly that its faults are becoming glaringly obvious Fortunately, thanks to YouTube podcasting and however else you get shows like this one the mainstream media’s stranglehold on information Which really is a stranglehold on your ability to think clearly about the issues of the day is crumbling at an incredible rate? Now the question is who and what will replace it a few months ago one of my favorite people to sit across this table from Eric Weinstein came up with the phrase Intellectual dark web to describe this eclectic mix of people from Sam Harris to Ben Shapiro to his brother Brett Weinstein to jordan Peterson all of whom are figuring out ways to have the important and often dangerous Conversations that are completely ignored by the mainstream It’s why I would argue that this collection of people are actually more influential at this point than whatever collection of cable news pundits you can come up with If you think I’m being hyperbolic about the growing influence of this group just check the traction that these people get on Twitter or Facebook Compared to our mainstream competitors twitter may not be real life as I say in my Twitter bio But it is some barometer of what the zeitgeist is right now what unites this group of thinkers is a sense that the set of ideas that have run Western culture for years are breaking down and That the chaos of the moment is the attempt to find new ones It’s nearly all happening online part of the problem that we have right now in our culture is Trying to diagnose the level at which the discussion should be taking place And I think the reason that this is a tumultuous time is because it actually is a time for discussion of first principles and it’s that first principles are Virtually at the level of theology because the first principles are the things that you assume and then move forwards like well What should we assume well the dignity of the human soul let’s start with that you can’t treat yourself properly without assuming that you Have a relationship with another person you can’t stabilize your family You can’t have a functional society, so what does it mean for this human soul to have dignity? well The part of the idea is that you’re participating in Creation itself and you do that with your actions in your language And you get to decide whether you’re tilting the world a bit more towards heaven or a bit more towards hell And that’s actually what you’re doing so that’s a place where the literal and the metaphorical truth comes together and people are very They’re terrified of that idea as they should be because it’s a massive responsibility They also argue that the central problem is polarization boosted by social media Peterson’s work looks at how people are hard-wired to see the world differently a lot of what determines your political orientation is Biological temperament far more than people realize so for example left-leaning people liberals, let’s say although that’s kind of MIS misnomer, but We’ll keep with the terminology liberals are high in a trait called openness, which is one of the big five personality traits And it’s associated with interest in abstraction and interest in aesthetics it’s the best predictor of liberal political leaning and they’re low in trait conscientiousness, which is dutifulness and and Orderliness in particular whereas the Conservatives are the opposite? They’re high in conscientiousness They’re dutiful and orderly and they’re low in openness and that makes them really good managers and administers ministers and often businessman But not very good entrepreneurs Because the entrepreneurs are almost all drawn from the liberal types and so These are really fundamental fundamentally biologically predicated differences, and they’re you might think about them as different sets of Opportunities and limitations, and and certainly different ways of screening the world and Each of those different temperamental types needs the other type Let’s call this a diversity issue if you start understanding that the person that you’re talking to who doesn’t share your political views isn’t Stupid that’s the first thing necessarily. They might be but so might you be no stupid. He isn’t the Differences in intelligence are not the prime determinant of differences in political belief All right so you might be talking to someone who’s More conscientious and less creative than you if you’re if you happen to be a liberal But that doesn’t mean that that person’s perspective is not valid And it doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t outperform you in some domains because they would so one thing to remember is People actually do see the world differently. It’s not merely that they that they’re possessed of love ilie informed opinions the whole point of the dava democracy is to Continue the dialogue between people of different Temperamental types so that we don’t move so far to the right that everything becomes encapsulated and stone and doesn’t move or so far to the left and everything dissolves in a kind of Mealy-mouthed chaos and the only way that you can you can navigate between those two Shoals is by is through discussion, which is why free speech is such an important value It’s the thing that keeps the temperamental types from being at each other’s throats in The aftermath of the Trump election that came as such a shock to most of the media One of the most widely shared analysis pieces was from deep code It describes how the establishment mainstream media perspective based around liberal values of openness and inclusivity He calls the blue church is being challenged by a new web-based insurgency a red religion based on the values of tribalism The culture were the the 20th century was a decisive success for blue any effectively a route for red So what we see first is that red was forced to move into a deeply exploratory phase Second that it did this in a context Where as it turns out? things were changing meaningfully quite significantly in fact it from my perspective in a world historical level the emergence of entirely new forms of communication and therefore entirely new sense-making and coherence He concludes that the blue church is in the process of collapse as its dominant ideology Can’t adapt to changing reality But that a combination of the two sets of values of blue and red is essential we are conscious and Effective in the world in groups, not as individuals and the ingredients of those groups Include aspects that are currently showing up as both red and blue I Propose somewhat strongly that Neither red nor blue as pure Elements contain the ingredients necessary to actually be adaptive to reality This is a disaster in fact It’s a little bit like Separating the hand and the eye Now you’re the eye can see if the eye takes itself as being the essence of virtue it separates itself from the ability to do The same thing with the hand for most of human history these groups have actually always commingled They’re necessary that they actually relate to each other in a deeply healthy and direct fashion their separations into armed camps is Extinction area actually you know the values of red that you think blue needs to integrate you also may also reintegrate. Oh well That’s actually pretty easy Responsibility I mean we’ve actually even seen it The ability to Make a commitment and keep it Which which by the way ideologically shows up is either duty or loyalty, but those are both ideologies the the deeper sense is that ability Responsibility both of the individual in the group level the ability to actually really make a Personal sacrifice on the part of the group that’s actually a deeply read value and I don’t mean that by the way as Politically ideological certainly there are people who? Are currently part of blue who feel that deeply what I’m saying is that that shows up much much more intensely in Read and when you’re feeling it in blue. You’re actually feeling a red value, and that’s good mixing is crucial Because that’s very Jordan Peterson esque – How would you how do you define Jordan Peterson? Or do you think the fact the issue is that he is is not definable within one of those two camps Yeah, I think that’s the point I think that he grasps directly the fact that human beings can only actually make sense of the world by virtue of communication with other human beings and this is all about the notion of admixture that one must have a mixture of of What I mean he uses the mythopoetic to make sense the order order and chaos The way right the taoist way is the alchemical admixture of order and chaos And that’s it like that’s how you do it, and so if you bias towards orderliness You find yourself in a rigid non adaptive non creative non exploratory framework Which will die because the world changes if you bias towards chaos You you eat your young and evaporate Which also ties for obvious reasons? And the key is to actually enable these things to be in relationship with each other and vital healthy relationship with each other, and I think that’s in some sense the essence of what he’s Focusing on and instead of the core what he’s asking about Peterson is hard for the broadcast media to get a handle on Because the depth of his thought means he doesn’t fit easily into any of their categories The clash with Kathy Newman was his breakthrough a moment where the new world met the old To give the context from Kathy Newman side she has to do dozens of interviews each month Peterson is hard to get a grip on and he sure as hell looks controversial She’s also focused on getting sound bites for a five minute cut down of the interview for TV. Not a long conversation for online The interview was ridiculous. It was a ridiculous interviewing. I listen to it or watched it several times I was like this is so strange It’s like her determination to turn into a conflict – it’s one of the issues that I have with Television shows yeah, because they have a very limited amount of time, and they’re trying to make things as salacious as possible They wouldn’t have these sound bites these clickbait sound bites And she just went into it incredibly confrontational not trying to find your actual perspective But trying to force you to defend a non non realistic perspective. Yes well I was that I was the hypothetical villain of her imagination essentially. No this is also. Why YouTube is gonna kill TV Because television by its nature all of these narrow broadcast technologies they rely on forcing the story right because It has to happen now It has to happen in like often in five minutes because they only broadcast five minutes of that in interview They did put the whole thing up on YouTube to their credit It it it hasn’t ceased to amaze me yet. I think that they thought that the interview went fine after the interview Channel four News found themselves at the center of an online storm Which included some nasty personal and misogynistic attacks? It’s understandable that they just wanted it to go away But online is forever and as the center of gravity continues to shift away from traditional media this interview is I would argue a slow-motion and Continuing car crash for Channel 4’s credibility, so why did it happen? Partly the limitations of the medium of TV, but also because of the institutional political blindness of the mainstream media I’ve always considered myself of the liberal left, but especially since the election of Trump I’ve been trying to understand what happened and I’m convinced that the polarization We’re seeing is mainly driven by the shadow side of liberalism in particular where supposedly Inclusive social justice liberalism stops being inclusive and secretly judges and despises people that don’t think the same way the rebellion of Trump and brexit was a direct response as Yuri Harris argues in this article in Colet the new gatekeepers of the media have become a new bourgeoisie Enforcing a rigid etiquette and using the rights of the oppressed as an excuse to put forward a vision of the kind of society they personally want to live in on the surface level it’s about how a narrow social justice worldview embodied by Kathy Newman in the interview became the new status quo and How this institutional bias of much of the mainstream media? Means it can’t see or understand the forces that are challenging this new consensus The counterculture used to be on the left, but once it won. The culture war it left space for a new counterculture The biggest manifestation is the red pill phenomena which the mainstream media? Mistakenly assumes is the same thing as the OLT right? I was surprised to just discover the overlap between What I minute II particularly like Greek philosophy and stoicism and The alt-right who I’ve always thought of you know if I come across on the tour. I thought the most kind Swivel-eyed bogeymen you know completely unpalatable extremists in their in their basements and then to discover that You know a lot of them were a lot of people in stoicism were also really into the alt-right Made me wonder. What was going on and why? People like me were getting radicalized I’m drawn into if you explain. What stoicism is for Stoicism is basically an ancient Greek philosophy, which was became very popular in the Roman Empire You know with like the Emperor Marcus Aurelius was a stoic for example? And it’s in some ways like a Western form of Buddhism It’s like a therapy for the emotions it teaches you to take Responsibility for your thoughts to take and thereby to take some control over your emotions so in some ways it’s putting forward a model of strength and integrity and kind of resilience Amid adversity and rapid change so for that reason it’s become very popular in the last 10 years I Think this is also. Why from my perspective at least someone like Jordan Pederson Is often looked from the outside as being aligned with the alt-right because he has a similar message But it’s but there are crucial differences. I think between what we would consider I mean certainly white nationalism would be an essential part of the alt-right I would say of any useful definition, and yeah, that’s that’s certainly not characteristic of of Jordan Peterson from my experience No, there’s a crucial difference at least between stoicism and the alt-right Even though a lot of alt writers into stoicism in that stoicism, and and maybe Jordan Peterson as well I don’t know. I’m not an expert on him talk about the way to gain strength and maturity and power is Internal it’s to take responsibility for your own thoughts and feelings Whilst I think people sometimes men might look for that sense of power and control externally by suppressing or Segregating anyone who they feel threatened by whether that’s other colours or other sexualities or Gender so there’s a crucial difference there one is about kind of inner Integrity and and and just kind of being strong within yourself and the other is about trying to take control through the kind of exterior I Mean every public appearance that I’ve made that’s related to the sort of topics that were discussing is overwhelmingly men It’s like it’s like eighty-five to ninety percent And so I thought wow that’s weird like what the hell’s going on here exactly, and then the other thing. I’ve noticed is that? I’ve been talking a lot to the crowds that I’ve been talking to not about rights But about responsibility right because you can’t have the bloody converse. What are you doing? You can’t have the conversation about rights without the conversation about responsibility because your rights are my Responsibility that’s what they are Technically, so you just can’t have only half of that discussion, and we’re only having half that discussion the question is well What the hell are you leaving out if you only have that half of the discussion and the answer is what you’re leaving out Responsibility and then the question is well What are you leaving out if you’re leaving out responsibility and the answer might be well, maybe you’re leaving out the meaning of life That’s what it looks like to me. It’s like here you are Suffering away, what makes it worthwhile, right? You know you’re completely. Oh, you’re completely you have no idea what you’re You it’s almost impossible to describe how bad an idea that is responsibility That’s what gives life meaning It’s like lift a load Then you can tolerate yourself right because look at your useless Easily hurt easily killed. Why should you have any self-respect? That’s the story of the fall Pick something up and carry it pick make it heavy enough so that you can think yeah well Useless as I am at least I could move that from there to there well What’s really cool about that is that when I talk to these crowds about this the man’s eyes light and that’s very good I’ve seen that phenomena because I’ve been talking about this Mythological material for a long time and I can see when I’m watching crowds people you know their eyebrows lift their eyes let light up Because I put something together for them. That’s what mythological stories. Do so I’m not taking responsibility for that That’s what the stories do so I say the story and people go click click click You know in their eyes light up, but this responsibility thing That’s a whole new order of this is that young men are so hungry for that. It is unbelievable. It just blows me away It’s like really that’s what’s that’s the counterculture? Grow the hell up and do something useful really I could do that oh I’m so excited by that idea no one ever mentioned that before it’s like rights rights rights rights Jesus It’s it’s it’s appalling. It’s and and I feel that that’s deeply felt by the people who are who are coming out to To listen to these sorts of things to they’re they’ve had enough of that So and they better have because it’s it’s a non-productive mode of being responsibility man Peterson is part of the counterculture that he describes himself as a classic liberal and yet he’s frequently Described as right-wing by the media This is not limited to Peterson James d’amours infamous Google memo was described everywhere as an anti diversity screed Despite him specifically stating he wanted to encourage more diversity in the workplace Many believe that the Channel 4 interview was a significant moment in exposing this mindset as dogmatic reactionary and fixed so during the interview we see an example of a Delusional framework that is what appears to be largely incapable of perceiving and reacting to reality in real time but much more interesting is what happened afterwards which was the sort of the self-healing and policing mechanism of the larger social consensus of how when how the blue church Reactively goes about maintaining the integrity of its frame And so what ended up happened was there was a break in the frame there was a glitch in the matrix the Mechanisms of the blue church reacted to endeavor to control the frame and to convert it into a way of sense of Making sense of the what occurred that still maintained the integrity of its frame? Do you mean when they tried to characterize it as sort of? abusive trolls and you’re right hero, and all of that exactly exactly it’s sort of a to use of a military language it was a fallback position that was a Reactive almost instinctual and not almost in fact precisely instinct was that pure habit there was no Thoughtfulness or even strategic Action there it was if if X then Y and in this case Y is. Here’s a set of things that one does to re-establish the dominant frame and Now we’re now were two levels deep you know the first. Level was a sort of self-evident disaster, but then the second level was also a relatively self-evident disaster and There isn’t really a third level In this approach so it ends up happening, and this is again. You can kind of just think about this from ordinary psychology This is how? delusions fall apart As try as we might our desire to interpret reality to mean what we wanted to mean at the end of the day. We’ll always Be checked against what reality actually is It may be some time. You know we’re pretty good at making things up and pretending, but eventually Reality is reality this isn’t to say that Peterson is not controversial He’s saying things that challenge the most deeply held assumptions of the new establishment narrative I guess the other reason that people are on My case to some degree is because I have made a strong case which I think is fully documented by the scientific literature that there Are intrinsic differences say between men and women and I think the evidence and that this is the thing that staggered me is that? No serious scientists have debated that for like four decades It’s that argument was done by the time. I went to graduate school everyone knew that human beings were not a blank slate that biological forces not Parameterised the way that we thought and and felt and acted and and and valued everyone knew that the fact that this has become somehow debatable again is just Especially because it’s being done by legislative Fiat. They’re forcing it Part of Peterson’s argument based on years of psychological research is that much of the political? Conflicts are due to try to integrate the different political temperaments of men and women we were talking about the relatively the relative evolutionary roles of men and women this is speculative obviously and and Because our research did indicate. It’s tentative research so far that that the the the SG is SJW sort of equality above all else philosophy is more prevalent among women It’s predicted by the personality factors that are more common among women so agreeable this and high negative emotion Primarily agreeableness, but in addition. It’s also predicted by being female and so I’ve been thinking about that a lot because well men are bailing out of the humanities like mad and Pretty much out of the university is except for stem the women are moving in like mad And they’re also moving into the political sphere like mad, and this is new right we’ve never had this happen before and we do know know do not know what the Significance of it is it’s only 50 years old and so we were thinking about this and so I don’t know what you think about this proposition, but imagine that that that historically speaking, it’s something like Women were responsible for distribution and men were responsible for production Something like that and maybe maybe that’s only the case really in the tight confines of the immediate family But that doesn’t matter because that’s most of the evolutionary landscape for human beings anyways what the women does did was make sure that everybody Got enough okay, and that seems to me to be one of the things that’s driving at least in part the SJW demand for for equity and Equality it’s like let’s make sure everybody has enough. It’s like look fair enough You know I mean you can’t you can’t argue with that but there’s there’s an antipathy between that and The the reality of differential productivity you know because people really do differ in their productivity I think that the SJW phenomena is different and I think it is associated at least in part with the rise of women to political power and and We don’t know what women are like when they have political power because they’ve never had it I mean there’s been queens obviously and that sort of thing there’s been female authority figures and females have Wielded far more power historically than feminists generally like to admit, but this is a different thing And we don’t know what what a truly female political philosophy would be like, but it might be Especially if it’s not been well examined And it isn’t very sophisticated conceptually it could easily be let’s make sure things you’ve distributed equally. Well, yeah Why One of Peterson’s main influences is the psychologist Carl Jung Young psychology was built around the concept of the shadow all the things about ourselves. We don’t want to accept our anger negativity Unconscious judgments, and how we need to integrate all those disowned parts to grow I’m convinced. That’s what’s happening on a vast cultural level since leaving channel 4 news I’ve retrained as a counselor and started leading personal growth workshops for men And thought a lot about how these unconscious gender dynamics are playing out in the culture One of the central concepts is Jung’s idea of animus and anima possession How each have both an inner masculine and feminine essence in? A man when he’s unconsciously possessed by his feminine side his anima he becomes withdrawn Moody and reactive and when a woman is possessed by her male side the animus she becomes aggressive and dominating and How many women are pushed into that by the nature of the modern workplace? The Kathy Newman I know is warm compassionate a successful and talented journalist none of this is criticism of her Just the role she was playing in the interview I would say technically and this is might be interesting for people who are interested in union psychology If you want to understand what Carl Jung meant by animus possession which is a very difficult concept? Then that that interview was a textbook case of having a discussion with someone who is animus possessed life has been moving forward for three and a half billion years and It moves forward in these pattered and manners like the dominance hierarchy for example, so that’s that let’s call that the masculine archetype It’s part of the masculine archetype in fact the onus Proclamation was that the female representation of the male so that’s the animus is the Dominance hierarchy it’s the patriarchy So that’s that that’s the unconscious archetype, which I think is extremely interesting given what’s happened say in the women’s movement because that’s what’s projected onto men and and It can be projected in a very negative way it doesn’t have to be but it can be and so an animus possessed woman treats a man as if he’s the Manifestation of the tyrannical patriarchy he’s a group he’s that group of men Yeah, the group of bad men actually you watched the Jordan Peterson Kathy Newman entity. What did he what did he think I? My whole body contracted, and I I felt so sad for womanhood I felt disappointed and I Could see how the shadow part of womanhood was acting out I could see how the collective rage was acting through Kathy Newman and This is what happens is that when that’s unknown its projected blindly on to Whatever stick wherever it sticks and it was very clear that she already had an agenda and she already had a projection that she was just Looking to state she was she was just looking to have that confirmed so I felt on behalf of women I felt sad and disappointed because we need to have intelligent conversations, and I also want to say that this isn’t even though the the specific example is the Kathy Newman Jordan Peterson interview, it’s not specific to – Kathy Newman I think the fact that that interview has resonated with so many people that it’s been so popular shows that actually something archetypal was going on in that in that interaction And I think as well why it’s gone viral is a lot of people watching it Recognize those dynamics. They’re like I’ve been in conversations like that I’ve been in this conversation where nothing I say works where nothing I say gets through So there’s something sort of fundamental about about the masculine feminine dynamic. That’s going on in there What do you think that is I think Jordan Peterson? He’s everyman Kathy Newman She’s every woman I can tap into that rage like this I know it in myself and women that say they don’t they’re just denying it because it is in the collective So in that sense it just highlighted what what’s that? It’s wonderful because here we really get to look at why is this so? Important why is it so important to listen to? To a thinker like Jordan Peterson and take it seriously and say what can we do with it? It’s just so obvious that it’s needed Because if this is where we are if this is where society and cultures is if this is the ability to have an intelligent conversations Conversation then we are in trouble, I really feel that there is this collective subconscious rage that is just boiling in women and it’s coming up in so many ways we see we see in the media and What’s going on is this? unknown Rage that comes up in in many different ways um And on one hand it needs to come out we need to clear it it needs to be expressed it needs to Be acknowledged on the other hand it’s not enough. This is only like this is breaking the ice So that the next step of evolution, can you know? Consciousness can start coming through and that’s what I’m lacking in women. It’s really to take responsibility for what we do as women in our Manipulation in our seduction in our control, and and it’s so easy for women to say but that’s just because we angry and men did this and patriarchy, but it’s It’s such a lack of responsibility and this Women really need to know I mean, that’s the the kind of shadow work is The acceptance that we all have shadows that men certainly have a shadow. There is a shadow around masculinity but there’s also a shadow around femininity and while part of the cultural conversation now is toxic masculinity and everyone knows what you mean by toxic toxic masculinity if You talk about toxic femininity Everyone still knows what you mean, but you can’t have that conversation Which is it’s it’s interesting? What is allowed to be said and what is not allowed to be said at the moment and that that I think is? is very Dangerous that certain topics certain conversations are off are off-limits And this is where we see where we see the victim persecutor dynamics activates it because women become the become the victims, and we make ourselves the victims and we Persecute men but in that aggression in that rage and when we are the victims. We are in perfect control we become the persecutors because we say It’s all about blame Men did this and men need to take responsibility But in that we become the persecutors, and it’s also very difficult as well because one imagines that that Combative attitude is something that has served her well in the past and it’s something that She’s maybe felt forced into because of the nature of the society that she’s operating in so it’s a kind of catch-22 situation for the many successful women because they feel that they’re pushed to be more masculine and Then when they’re more masculine they get judged for being more masculine It’s it’s very sad and and and I can see that dynamics being played out absolutely But I think the only thing we can do is to take responsibility okay? I’m doing that do I really want to compromise my femininity do I want to compromise my integrity? Do I want to compromise my gender and? Play that or is there another way that I can be powerful without being aggressive without playing a power game But resting in my natural power resting in my natural dignity Resting in that deep rootedness that we both have in our genders that When we are peace with it and when we acknowledge it in ourselves It’s there as a natural thing and and this is the thing I don’t want to make this personal about Kathy Newman Because it’s it’s in that potential is in every woman, but it’s because we are persecuting our own femininity What’s being played out that we’re doing it to ourselves because we don’t trust that it’s good enough to be a woman We don’t trust that we can have conversations that come from a felt embodied perspective. We don’t trust that we’re connected to truth because these these Masculine ways have been have been very strong and women have been denying their own power In my work over many years of working with this I find that very few women Grew up in households which really? Loved admired respected honored cherished the feminine and So there is intrinsically for so many women who’ve grown up in the I don’t know the last hundred years that say A kind of devaluation of the feminine that gets taken on and of course and as well as abuse aggression all sorts of things so very Many women out of an intelligent strategy to survive Develop their masculine side as a defense against that devaluation for the feminine and over time they become very Identified with that masculine side the male equivalent is animal possession in anima possession it’s the loss of relaxed confidence in the Groundedness in the masculine and is overwhelmed by his own inner feminine side a passive withdrawn moody bitchy Complaining not showing up kind of guy, which I think is really so much what feminists are angry about I Don’t see them as really angry about the masculine per se but it the way that Males behave, and you know I have got a lot of compassion for that Because for myself and most men that I know we weren’t really shown how to be as men We didn’t really get initiated into it and so and then this strong thing comes from feminism And we feel like it’s it’s maleness. That’s wrong, and it’s not it’s not maleness. That’s wrong. I don’t even think feminism feminists hate The masculine it’s like what the call is really for men is to develop their masculine strength presence courage be relaxed and confident be protective and be strong and Under this kind of assault which has come from a lot of animus possessed women a lot of men have retreated And I think gone into feeling guilty about being men and have become passive Indecisive and in that way a kind of feminized man has emerged Those who followed Peterson’s thought recognize his analysis goes all the way down to the bedrock to the Archetypal structures of consciousness itself the thing that I really see happening and you can tell me what you think about this in annoyance book Consciousness which is masculine symbolically masculine for a variety of reasons is is viewed as rising up? against the countervailing force of tragedy from an underlying Feminine symbolically feminine unconsciousness right and it’s something that can always be pulled back into that unconsciousness That would be the microcosm of that would be the Freudian eatable mother Familial dynamic where the mother is so over Protective and all-encompassing that she interferes with the development of the competence not only of her sons But also of her daughter of her children in general, and it seems to me that that’s the dynamic That’s being played out in our Society right now is that there’s this and it’s it’s related in some way that I don’t understand to this to this Insistence that all forms of masculine Authority are nothing, but tyrannical power so the symbolic representation is tyrannical father with no appreciation for the benevolent father and benevolent mother with no appreciation whatsoever for the tyrannical mother right and that’s that and Because I thought of ideologies as fragmentary mythologies That’s where they get their archetypal and psychological power right and so in a balanced representation you have the terrible mother and the Great Mother as Anointment laid out so nicely and you have the terrible father and the great father So that’s the fact that culture mangles you have to death well It’s also promoting you and developing you you have to see that as balanced, and then you have the heroic and adversarial individual But in the postmodern world and this seems to be something that’s increasingly Seeping out into the culture at large you have nothing but the tyrannical father nothing But the destructive force of masculine consciousness and nothing, but the benevolent Benevolent great mother and it’s a it’s an appalling ideology, and it seems to me that it’s sucking the vitality Which is exactly what you would expect symbolically, it’s sucking the vitality of our culture you see that with the increasing demolition of of young men And not only young men in terms of their academic performance Which like they’re falling way behind in elementary school way behind in junior high and bailing out of the universities like mad and so And I well the public school education it’s become completely permeated by this kind of my anti male propaganda I mean, and I need to mean public schools are just a form of imprisonment. You know right now They’re particularly destructive to young men who have a lot of physical energy You know you know I identify as transgender gay mic myself way But I do not I do not require the entire world To alter itself okay to fit my particular the self-image I do believe in The power of hormones I believe that men exist and women exist and they are biologically different. I think that I think there is no cure for the culture eles right now except if men start standing opera in demanding that they be Respected as men here’s the problem You know this is something my wife is pointed out to she said well men are gonna have to stand up for themselves But here’s the problem. I know how to stand up to a man who’s Who’s? unfairly Trespassing against me and the reason I know that is because the parameters for my resistance are quite well-defined Which is we talk? We argue? We push and then it becomes physical? Right like if we move beyond the boundaries of civil discourse We know what the next step is ok, that’s forbidden in in discourse with women So I don’t know like it seems to me that it isn’t men that have to stand up and say enough of this even though That is what they should do it seems to me that it’s saying women Who have to stand up against their crazy sisters and say look enough of that enough man-hating enough? Pathology enough bringing disgrace on us as a gender but the problem there And then I’ll stop my little tirade is that most of the women. I know who are saying are busy doing same things, right? They’re off they have their career. They have their family They’re quite occupied And they don’t seem to have the time or maybe even the interest to go after their their crazy harpy sisters And so I don’t see any regulating force for that that terrible femininity, and it seems to me to be Invading the culture and undermining the the masculine power of the culture in a way, that’s I think fatal I really do believe that I too I too believe these are symptomatic of the decline of Western culture And we and it will just go down flat. I don’t think people realize that you know Masculinity still exists okay in the world as a code among jihadists, okay? And when you have passionate masculinity, okay? Circling the borders like the Huns and the Vandals during the Roman Empire that that’s what I see I see this culture rotting from within okay, and disemboweling itself literally We have this Bit of combat let’s say It produced a scandal Now we actually talked about it Yeah No tricks just a conversation And then everybody wins right because I can admit whatever mistakes I made she can admit whatever mistakes She made we can drop the persona So you’re saying the polarization that we’re seeing right now that we are speaking out. It’s not In the future we will act out that polarization well if we don’t if we keep Accelerating it especially if we keep accelerating with lies. Yeah, you know and and this this whole channel for Rat’s nest is like 90% lies. Maybe more and You know a lot of its ideologically motivated lies, but it doesn’t matter it still lies like Kathy as I said There was virtually nothing she said in that interview that was actually Coming from her like like a deep part of her the soul of her or so it was all persona It was all persona and and and all use of words in a in a Expedient manner as tools to obtain I think probably probably status dominant status and reputation I mean what advice would you give to people to? To navigate this new world the first is for your mind. Be aware of the fact that the habits of the blue church and And how it works Don’t work anymore recognize that your way of making sense in the world that used to work Don’t work, and you really really need to set yourself free to begin learning the new child’s mind beginner’s mind second this by nature must in fact be exploratory so Swim, do not make sense prematurely in spite of the fact that the world feels dangerous inside of that you may want to protect yourself in this dangerous world Doing so too quickly did not allow the natural exploratory Approach to do what it needs to do really, just listen and Learn go all the way dad back down to human base Turn inward Learn how fear shows up in you Learn how not to allow fear to drive the choices that you make Learn how to listen to the whole way that all of you perceives. What’s going on become more integrated with your own body Go out into nature Spend a lot of time not connected to the chaos That’s going on and a lot of time Reconnecting yourself with your fundamental capacity to perceive reality in all the different modalities these human beings have the capacity to do Then relearn how to use other human beings as allies in figuring out how to make sense of the world I mean that really relearn like we have been abused and constrained by institutional frameworks that remove us from our own native capabilities So relearn that understand how to be a friend and an ally how to have a conversation with somebody where you’re really listening closely To get a sense of what their perspective brings to you where you’re not obligated to agree with them We are not obligated to move out of what you feel is right to form some new Consensus reality, but where you’re actually authentically? Recognizing that their perspective has some capacity to bring richness to your perspective This by the way is almost exclusively possible in person and what we’re doing right now is an OK version of it But we need to be very mindful the fact that Linear broadcast is bad and even interactive Bandwidth like this. It’s not good enough. You know you’ve got to learn from raw Physical and get yourself into places where your consensus reality, and your habits are willfully destroyed Human to human conversations and and get as far away from ideology as you can Your job is not to know what the fuck is going on Your job is to be absolutely certain that you have no idea what the fuck is going on and learn how to feel from raw chaos from raw uncertainty up Then and only then are you finally able to begin the journey of Beginning to form a collective intelligence in this new environment That’s my advice this is why we’ve created rebel wisdom to host these conversations to try and unpack what’s going on and through our workshops and events Start to build this collective intelligence for the future To see longer versions of the interviews featured in this film and our full-length documentary about Jordan Peterson check the rebel wisdom website Help us create more films about these subjects by sponsoring us on patreon and come to our events to have these conversations in person You

  1. IMO Peterson, like Ben Shapiro, has a hidden agenda. Both entice your loyalty in order to accomplish their real goals.

  2. Interesting concept. Sounds like underlying issues since there is no difference between the "left and right". I would urge everyone to read the book I have linked. The "term" Communitarianism is the newest "adopted" blanket term/ name of the umbrella of "policies" covering what is being directed by the "unseen", and is being used to "globalize" us all. http://nord.twu.net/acl/ebookdownload/2020_ebook.pdf

  3. Mr. Peterson is the best kind of man there is … a REASONABLE one. And his mild respectful approach allows that voice of reason to get through to more people than ever. He's in a class of his own.

  4. JP is a mystic. He believes in a supernatural deity for which there is no evidence. Anyone who believes in something without evidence can also hold any other convictions similarly without rational cause. The 'world view' of any such individual must be questioned. Mysticism is the root cuase of human problems and therefore cannot form aany part of the solution.

  5. "To know that we know what we know,
    and to know that we do not know
    what we do not know,
    that is true knowledge."
    -Nicolaus Copernicus

  6. Man made models of the perceived world
    are language and language is not reality.
    Physics is functional. It is all about predictive models
    that help to develop technology. Metaphysical questions
    are beyond the jurisdiction of physics. I am sorry that
    physicists tend to forget that fact way too often

  7. I’ve watched hours of JP lectures and read his book. The man has a brilliant mind and no hidden agenda whatsoever.

  8. The polarity of the values creats too much animosity. When we see more of the diffrence and less of the sameness, we begin to justify why we are right and the other is wrong. As humans, our core values are very much the same, value for self, family and life – self preservation. And when all of us goes back to this core value, we will see a unification and a more centralised values.

  9. This video is making this way too hard. To be a man, don't be a coward-go slay that dragon. While doing so, be aware that females EXPECT you to slay the dragon and you will no credit for doing so.
    Until feminism is crushed, this female attitude will only get worse. There is no reformation for feminism.
    Feminism will either get crushed or it will get worse….period
    You're welcome.

  10. The piles on the left know peterson is absolutly right.You have to have their stamp of approval or you are destroyed.Its nothing short of totalitarianism

  11. an interesting read…
    mindset of "SECRET" SOCIETIES

  12. Rob S.
    Sorry this comes across by the leftist producer as typical subterfuge and damage control after a sobering, demasking and thorough a$$ kicking by the doctor. The doctor is an insurmountable foe armed with facts and intellect exposing the Leninist for what they are. His specialty focuses on the imposed rift in the natural order but it’s but one effect of the ideological subversion that the USSR played out at the start of the Cold War. That demoralization was seeded thru Ivy League professors And created the 1960’s lost generation planting leftist influencers throughout news entertainment, politics and education in the following years. Today creating the matrix of utopian mirage offered by the left that only leads to destabilization and anarchy that is soon violently replaced in crisis into full blown Leninism. See Yuri Bezmenov interview on YT.

  13. This is also a chaotic time because we're suffering from a kind of future shock at having so many povs for everything. It's part of the push for "authoritative" sources of information and some of the classification by so called authoritative sources to label subversive or nonconforming sources and opinions as being "fake news". We used to have more limited, "authoritative" sources of information and opinion, local news and papers, and national magazines and news. Now, we can investigate just about everything, sometimes even to the very source, instead of depending on 2nd hand interpretation of eyewitnesswa or first hand experiencer's accounts. And there is a platform and support group for just about every inclination, orientation, or political persuasion. In a time when we have little keeping us united, fewer people go to church, which also used to be a mainstream unifying force; our society feels more and more chaotic and dangerous at the least on an ideological level.

  14. Some people blame the silicon valley for being Radical Left. Silicon valley people are basically the ones who used to get bullied in high school by jocks. Nothing has changed. They are doing things after being bullied by people around them today. They act idealogical to hide their shame of bending over to the ones who came first to knock on their door.

  15. Why would a purported rebel design his logo using the oligarch's pyramid and all seeing eye?

  16. Can some send me some new toys.. candles and a gift certificate to northlake mall please ..ps eternally grateful for the blessings in advance..maybe some $-$+#+; too please to ease me? 😘😘

  17. What strikes me as most odd is that the documentarian refers to the mindset of the past 30 or 40 years as "the old world." It's a world that never once made sense to me. I am over 70. The "new world" he describes is exactly the world that DOES make sense to me. I and my generation ushered in the Civil Rights Movement of MLK and the new Peace of JFK. What happened afterwards grew to be a charicature of our movement where everything was a "right", government became the "big daddy" of everyone and no one individually had ANY responsibility. The rest is history. Thank GOD we have turned.

  18. Why isn't it just exactly as "unwoke" to feel rage at all of manhood (because of "the patriarchy"?) as it is to feel rage against all immigrants because the media has reported on some who have committed violent crimes?

  19. "Collective intelligence" is a weird term. We don't mind-meld. We discuss. Our different understandings of the world we live in can only be united by shared bedrock VALUES and MORALS as exhibited in the way we treat ourselves, each other, and that very world.

  20. The holocaust didnt happen, go look up national socialist economics and read and listen to Hitler, you will see why he is the most demonized and lied about man in history. Just look at Peterson for an example of how someone can be misrepresented, there was no internet at the time to protect Hitler, almost everything mainstream about him is lies by the Zionist status quo he stood up to, the same status quo behind the destruction of the family and the white race and the same status quo enslaving every nation with the debt creating financial system.

    Hitler on women:
    If the man's world is said to be the State, his struggle, his readiness to devote his powers to the service of the community, then it may perhaps be said that the woman's is a smaller world. For her world is her husband, her family, her children, and her home. But what would become of the greater world if there were no one to tend and care for the smaller one? How could the greater world survive if there were no one to make the cares of the smaller world the content of their lives? No, the greater world is built on the foundation of this smaller world. This great world cannot survive if the smaller world is not stable. Providence has entrusted to the woman the cares of that world which is her very own, and only on the basis of this smaller world can the man's world be formed and built up. The two worlds are not antagonistic. They complement each other, they belong together just as man and woman belong together.

  21. Peterson seems to be doing the very thing he’s saying women should be doing, which is men taking responsibility for themselves. If we each did that, there would be no need to point the finger any longer.

  22. There is a big different about intelligent and wisdom.the problem is creatures think they know better than their Creator. 😎

  23. I use to believe I was Republican, mostly because I don't feel that anyone who didntvearn it, doesn't deserve it. Entitlement in this current generation is thru the roof, and I'm apart of the problem, because I was poor, I want my children to have all of their needs met and that's what all of this generations parents want and we have literally created monsters. But then I look at what's happening in the oceans, and the jungles, oil and corporations are destroying the earth, but again, I'm apart of the problem, I use all of the things that are created from the resources…..I war also brainwashed by the catholic church for 15 yrs, but I've recently realized that is so far off as of what life should be about…so I'm finding I fit in NOWHERE. because I dont want a label, I want to live and help others and keep the earth as clean as possible because my kids and all the kids of the earth will inherit mother earth. Libertarian is prob. The closest I come to a label but even them, spiritually I dont jive with! Idk we are definately at a boiling point and there must be a change it's the law of nature!

  24. Wow this was great and absolutely blew my mind. Gosh this makes so much sense.. I'm half my through Jordan Peterson's book 12 Rules for life and I can't wait to finish after watching this. Thanks!

  25. Also, nobody has spoken about the fact that pharmaceutical companies are putting male and female DNA (aborted baby lung cells) into vaccines for all babies… its changing our DNA..its creating feminine men and masculine women as well as autistic children who become adults that need care 24-7…this absolutely plays a part on this whole picture!

  26. Enjoyed 90% of this. What JP said about responsibility being the purpose if life; "go lift something." That was good stuff.

    However, from about 38:00 onward- yeah that's straight up double think.
    Where was your "disappointment" when women had no voice.

  27. i like this definition of the leftist society…millie mouthed chaos…reminds me of squats in amsterdam from 20 years ago…

  28. @40:00 she Could have Said It's Not Fair For Jordan TO Be Banned🚫&Katy newman gets bigger Mic🎤, When Deep Down Everybody Knows Jordan Would still Be Standing There Defending them if they were right on a certain subject/situations & Had Nobody else Standing up for them without wanting anything in return, Jordan Is Jumping On The Sword For All Of Us Breathing on this Planet For Fuck Sake S👀 The Bigger Picture,

  29. As Louise Mazanti explains the importance of taking responsibility, the interviewer tries to effectively absolve Kathy Newman of personal responsibility for her behavior, making excuses for her at 35:40.

  30. We are being conformed to beings of victimisation. It is in our educational institutes where both the fault & answer lies. Manipulation of these educational facilities worldwide along with MSM has laid the foundation of our societies direction.

  31. Peterson refuses to call out anything jewish. He will not comment on weather he agrees with abortion, says he wouldn't recommend it to someone he loves. He contradicts himself and is a constructed sensation. Its a shame that men are needing to hear some of the simple concepts that he talks about so badly that they buy into everything he has to say and wont look into what he refuses to say.

  32. I did not identify with Cathy Newman at any level .one has to be utterly stupid n dishonest to identify with her. Women like Cathy Newman are one that at an an early age made a decision to be deceptive. Deceptive women talk that way, they blurt rubbish n hope they r not caught. If caught they cry n switch the script.

  33. How can the internet kill tv? The internet is more tv than tv will ever be…it even has more ads and you can watch twice as much without having the flip or click as much too.

  34. Liberalism and liberal democrats turned out to be the real as Hell! Scariest campaigners, they have really shown that they don't care about DEMOCRACY, only their own Views.evidenced by their continued presence outside Parliament.Chanting UTTER BOLLOX!!

  35. And when Liberalism are found out….
    They just stick the 3 letters,,,,,"NEO-, and create a whole New movement of Liberalism 😙😁😉

  36. I hate when people say america is a democracy . This is totally false . This is a brainwashing tactic used on every american to the point of cognitive dissidents . America is a republic and not a democracy but if enough people believe this lie . Then it becomes truth for people .

  37. Look up agenda 21. Peterson is part of it. He is a liar and he is trying to trick people. He is a wizard, he says he believes in God but wont say Jesus is Lord. Dont trust him

  38. This type of eclectic thinking is on fire coz ppl are ABSOLUTELY STARVING for the opportunity to converse on these upper levels of decent human communal rulership and stewardship.
    It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand the level of stupidity of the power echelons who would desire to overpower this independent thinking and evolution… they only seem to desire to be rid of our existence coz they think with the spiritual tantrumy logic of a 4yr old.
    I believe the term is "narcissist"… & it is of the worst kind…

  39. 24:58 THIS point alone is why the movie "Fight Club" was such an iconic and popular film…

  40. In other words… we need to become more yin in order to both counter our already overwhelming yang, and to know HOW & where to use it.
    Otherwise it's just yang existing for its own sake..

  41. Its amazing to listen to people have real conversations and genuine ideas. I particularly like what he said about responsibility.

  42. Youtube only allows Jordan Peterson, because he is too famous to ignore. The Dennis Prager lawsuit is going to determine where humanity goes in the future. It's might be the most important lawsuit in history.

  43. Newman may have been a "warm" person, but, it was her career that moved her to express what the elitists wanted to project. The producers dictate the narrative, the hosts, do what they are told.

  44. This is garbage. Earth is flat. These people want to confuse you with a left right wing paradigm. Wake up please.

  45. it's a massive responsibility, serving the lord is serious business, speaking truth in a world void of it.

  46. Sadly the video title is a troll, which discredits the content. It frames the content as agenda biased itself, which does Peterson and the author or the video no credit. Peterson himself has some interesting ideas, but they're abused here.

  47. In between red and blue are the libertarians. Jordan Peterson is a classical liberal too!

  48. At 7:49 Mr. Peterson says we should assume the dignity of the human soul. The truth is most people never contemplate the soul or its origin.

  49. I remember when Channel 4 had a "makeover" a number of years ago and this new, vicious style of interviewing came out. These presenters do not believe what they are saying, they are trying to cause a sensation to draw attention.

    Does anyone remember this channel 4 makeover? They suddenly changed overnight. I remember it distinctly and decided not to watch the Channel 4 news because I thought and still think the information is invaluable and a mockery.

  50. Peterson made a good stand on a good topic for good reasons…. it's been downhill from there on… I have very little respect for Peterson's intellect…. He is as deluded and full of contradictions as your average religious zealot.

  51. Check out Truthstream media and corbett report for really interesting fact based videos and documentaries. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.

  52. So here’s my question: What is men’s end goal? What have feminists taken from you, that you were able to do before that you can’t do now? What has been removed from you as a result of feminism?

  53. Have a community that has no left brain function anymore.. so it THINKs its functioning , but its NOT . THANKS electronics , 5 G microwave towers, GMO, vAXxxxxx , no more trees, no clean water , no more birds, no more LIFE !

  54. Jordan Peterson is the greatest mind of our time. No one can realistically prove otherwise, to even think it is evidence of delusion.

  55. Dr Peterson, This isn't the influence of the HARLET of Babylon? Is it not obvious it's an artificial chaos??

  56. Just shut down all these new media as well as old. It's like a strong addiction in the end, Read a good book and put your trust in karma. Evil will destroy itself anyway. Focus on your own ethics.

  57. p c thinking and identity politics are not left-wing. liberals are not left-wing! This naming these so-called philosophies as from the left is an Americanism! The same way of thinking that claims warmongering neoliberal criminal Hillary Clinton is somehow left-wing! She is not and neither is her bourgeois feminism! Scratch a Liberal and you will find a reactionary as Lenin so correctly said! While I am at it, the MSM is not left-wing, how can a billionaire owned tory press be considered left-wing? God, I hate this modern world with its mish-mash thinking! Pseudo intellectuals make me fucking spew up! They are so full of themselves. By the way, there is no toxicity around my masculinity, i don't give a toss about what sex an opinion has! :}

  58. Why are they ignoring the fact progressivism,literalism, democrats are all actually communists.PERIOD.
    Their goal is the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT and they've stated as much.
    Feminism is part of the whole Marxist package and Cathy Newman is an absolute a**.
    I'm female and I can't stand feminist.
    See Yuri Bezmenov videos 2 of them on YouTube former kgb agent in Soviet style subversion.

  59. Jordan is one of these guys whos thought it through pretty good , just about everything he says is correct .
    Its good to hear the truth for a change .

  60. Video started out good until he said something about America being a democracy and it isn’t a democracy!! It’s a Republic!!! Have you said the pledge of allegiance lately? Refresher course… I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all!

  61. YouTube will die as instead of replacing TV, it is now trying to become it. Creating the environment that made people flee from it in the first place. The replacement and brave uncompromising advertisers have an opportunity to seize this market and make billions.

  62. Joe roegan was not a high profile show btw they tried to shell him out to mainstream but he got smart and went back to his base and became downgraded again.

  63. Ok so we have nearly all of us not knowing how to heal in ways that will close the gap between (enter your own word or phrase). The woman who talks about how angry women are is spot on. I know I'm angry. I know why I'm angry. Ok so the psychologist I think she is tells me to stop being victim. Great. I'll start as soon as someone can tell me how. As it stands I do my best to bite my tongue and walk away.

  64. All rubbish about that interview. Korwin Mikke says it for years and dumbo piers he doesnt even understand what bloke means.

    Similar to why more boys watching Peterson than girls. Jordan must be playing stupid if he doesnt know this also.

    Please watch this.


    rude piers ignorant. Then few months after came that ladies earn less on tv but piers didnt come back to it and at least apologise.

  65. Well… You are an elitist idiot that assumes the lesserlings think in binary, (projection) there i said it now i know if you where a women in this age i would be a missoginist but sense your not what am I?

  66. It is my belief ‘red’ and ‘blue’ is not the natural state of things; Human beings are much more intricate so need to interact and find a common ground to feel connected and more ‘human’. I have stopped watching TV. I find it doesn’t satisfy my interests or deepen my understanding of the world around me.

  67. I find the agenda against Dr Peterson fairly evident in the nature of the interviewer's approach. Some people who have supposedly "interviewed" Dr Peterson, have blatantly tried to engage in aggressive, contentious discourse, rather than interview the man about his knowledge and expertise. He's been hijacked by predictable, political oneupmanshippers, who are clearly trying to gain a feather in their cap by defeating him linguistically. This never goes to plan because they are clearly out of their depth. Why not just interview him, without forcing the discourse into aggressive baiting and arbitrary, erroneous accusations? His interviews are as fascinating as his lectures. There are people lucky enough to study under him and recognise his experience and respect him as a scientist, a professor and a bloody good teacher. Maybe if the predictable journalists stop trying to make a name for themselves by going toe-to-toe with him and do a proper interview with him about his work and career, maybe then he could stop having to defend himself, and ultimately win, against argumentative, predictable journalism.

  68. why do you think i have been risking it all to expose the corrupted people who would take and stomp on our rights..there not only my rights..there my children's rights and freedoms ..your children..if i am a radical? if i am a racist ?? for protecting our moral values .our human values..the values that founded our laws.our rights and freedoms.. then ill be what you call me..if thats what it takes.? so be it..
