Tom Brady Kissed His Son on the Mouth, And That’s None of Your Business…

Date: February 03, 2018

01) Tom Brady Kissed His Son on the Mouth, And That’s None of Your Business

“In a documentary video about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Brady is shown kissing his 11-year-old son on the lips. Because we are so desperate to blame, shame, and humiliate parents—America’s real national pastime—suddenly this is an issue.

Except it’s not. It’s a parent kissing his kid.”

Lip kissing between parent and child, is not particularly uncommon.

…It’s the outrage over it, that is new.

The video was not being nice, and working correctly…so, I didn’t get to the point of the kiss. I wont comment on this specific kiss.

I will say…it’s disturbing that people get so bent out of shape over lip kissing between parent and child, that it actually becomes treated as “newsworthy”.

Adults and children should be able to lip kiss, if they mutually wish to.

Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro: Frontline of Free Speech (LIVE)…

01) Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro: Frontline of Free Speech (LIVE)

“Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro join Dave for a live discussion about postmodernism, Trump, conservatism, free speech, and rules for life.”

A few personal observations…

“The non-Judaic-Christian social setting killed X number of people”…

I’ve always hated this type of comment, especially when coming from religious people…

…”Oh!…Look at all the people who died under ‘your’ belief system!…How monstrous and horrible!”…

It’s the pot calling the kettle black…and it’s not an argument of substance.

This sort of thing exists, no matter what ideological group is in power.

“Relativism leaves no place else to go [no way to “go up”]”…

Relativism is not nihilism.

Jordan does not seem to understand this critical point…and he’s using the term in it’s colloquial form.

Relativists naturally have a deep appreciation for negotiation…We realize human beings are complex and diverse…and hence, require different things based upon any number of variables they live with.

Relativism by it’s very nature, strives to be the best outcome possible for every individual…

…That is not “nowhere to go”, nor “no way to go up”.

I don’t generally have a lot of criticism for Jordan…but, these are a few things I’ve noticed, over time…which are weak points in his own outlook…

I appreciate that both Ben and Jordan acknowledge, that life guiding morals and principles don’t “come from religion”, so much as…I guess you would say…they existed on a human intellect level…but got passed along amongst the generations, via different vehicles…sometimes religion…sometimes not religion…But they exist, naturally, outside of religion.

That’s an honest admission, you so rarely see.

This is a really good conversation, regardless.
