A piece on Jordy. The more I read the less I empathise. Seems a conflicted very unhappy individual.

Too long and too many crappy pop up ads on that trashy site. Cliff notes pls.

This is an evolutionary perspective.

The problem with Peterson is that he assumes the audience is intellectually educated with his disciplines. He doesn't consider the layperson.
He does consider the lay person. The sad and dopey lay person is who he makes his money off. You'd have to be pretty dumb to think there was any reason or intelligence in what he said.

He literally said nothing.

"I could be wrong" .... if only he showed some certainty at that point he could have saved himself and the rest of us some time.

I understand that you can't.

Are you a worshipper of the lord of the incells?

Since Michael Brooks passed Peterson's only worth as a basis for Brooks to riff on comedy and impressions no longer exists. It amazes me why a man who litterally says nothing "I'm just asking the question" ... "I could be wrong" ... "We don't know that women and men can work together".

He makes money off a few sad and lonely young men by giving some solid advice on cleaning your room. It is such a shame that he needs to pepper it wiht his throwback bigotry.

Yet to meet a leftist who can actually dissect anything Peterson has to say. Constantly just degenerative nonsense.

The same tired, old trope arguments about why 'he's wrong' or 'he's a bigot'. Positively regurgitated from their bullshit, link-riddled propaganda every single time.

You know who substitutes 'figuratively' for 'literally'?

fu**in' morons, that's who.

We should stick to getting our social guidance from deeply insecure, drug addicted, unhappy and constantly divorcing celebrities instead.

They know how to be happy and what we need.

Leftist is a pretty bland title. I'm more of a Marxist/Anarchist/Environmentalist. After studying mathematics seriously and history recreationally they seem to be the most natural conclusions on how to build a stable and productive society.

I think Peterson is dissected regularly. One of the main criticisms of him is that he deliberately doesn't take a position on most things when being a bigot. What he does is "ask the question" or "I'm not actually saying that [insert questioning something that a bigot would] I'm just asking the question" when they are settled questions/conversations.

When does make definite statements about matters from history or politics they are easily dismissed. In fact, most of us just laugh at them. Claiming that "communism kills" etc. That certain minority groups don't fight an uphill battle etc.

Great, so you understand the implication of Planck's Law on climate change then.

Anyone who reduces him to the predictable memes, shows that they lack the necessary intellect to understand him.

He was a Professor of psychology at Harvard well before complete ****wits utilised him to "DESTROY" the equally moronic targets of their political disdain via youtube clips.

You're just too stupid to know any better.

The Plank length is what makes me think this is a simulation. The pixels of nature. Not sure what it has to do with climate change (I will google though). Guessing you may be referring to statistical mechanics. However, we regards environment I know a diverse system is a robust system and monoculturing the natural world through feeding our over population through agriculture is not a good thing. I believe we should be enforcing high density living, industrial farming and rewilding as much of the world as possible. We're currently a long way into an extinction event that is 10-100 times more intense then the worst prior extinction event.

I also know that we've already put way too much CO2 into the atmosphere and think that the climate is not a linear system. It is a chaotic system that will find equilibrium points and we'll bump it off the one it has been sitting on for 12k years. This combined with the stress we've put most ecological systems under already ... not good for the current state of affairs.

It is a shame you can read history a million years from now because the sort of life that evolves in the carbon rich atmosphere we're creating will be very interesting. Obviously not ideal for large mammals, nor an ape wanting to farm the world and have a population in the billions.

Wow, would you like some strawberries with your waffle?

Some mathematician.
