Jordan Peterson [Full Interview] Heated Exchange w/ BBC Radio’s Philip Dodd…


Date: June 04, 2018

01) Jordan Peterson [Full Interview] Heated Exchange w/ BBC Radio’s Philip Dodd


“This is a great interview. Enjoy. Philip Dodd does a great job of pushing Peterson and Peterson does a great job of defending his position. There is plenty of great substance in this one interview.

Self help, identity politics and the influence of postmodernists are on the agenda as Philip Dodd meets the YouTube star and Canadian clinical psychologist, Jordan B. Peterson.

Dr. Jordan B Peterson was raised as a Christian conservative, and began questioning religion in his early teens. He criticizes the New Atheists (specifically Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris) for oversimplifying the philosophy of Christianity when making their critiques. Peterson often points to the symbolic underlying meaning of the archetypal ideas in religious mythology when explaining his understanding of religion.

He grew up in Fairview, Alberta, Canada, a small town of 3,000 people 580 km (360 mi) northwest of Edmonton, Alberta. He resided in Montreal from 1985 to 1993, where he studied under the supervision of Robert O. Pihl and Maurice Dongier. From 1993 to 1998 he lived in Arlington, Massachusetts, while teaching and conducting research at Harvard. He has resided in Toronto since 1998.

At the age of 13, Peterson had joined the New Democratic Party (NDP). He remained continually active with party until the age of 18. He has two bachelor degrees from the University of Alberta. His first was in political science. After visiting Europe, Peterson became extremely interested in the psychological unpinning that created the circumstances of the Cold War and its origins within the Second World War. After this experience, he returned to the university to complete another bachelor in psychology.

He received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from McGill University. He taught at Harvard University as an assistant and an associate professor. There he studied aggression arising from drug and alcohol abuse. During his time at Harvard, the university psychology department would frequently send any student with a strange or unusual thesis to him, as he would be willing to entertain and supervise uncommon thesis proposals. After Harvard, he returned to Canada and took a position at the University of Toronto.

In March of 2017, Peterson was nominated for the position of Rector of the University of Glasgow. Peterson who received 442 votes came fifth in the election, losing to the Scottish lawyer Aamer Anwar who received just under 4500 votes.”

01) Pedophilia Interview with Dutch Psychologist (T. Rivas)


“T. Rivas, MA (phil.), MSc (psych.) has accepted an invitation to take part in this interview for the Youth Liberation YouTube channel on the topic of pedophilia.

He is author of the book ‘Positive memories’ – Cases of positive memories of erotic relationships and contacts of children with adults, as seen from the perspective of the former minor.

NOTE FROM YOUTH LIBERATION: I aim to create content for this channel no matter what, but I need you to help fund my work if you would like even more features from credentialed people and more regular content which can reduce hostility towards pedophiles and ultimately better societal conditions for youth.

…at this stage I am seeking donations to cover my BASIC NEEDS which ultimately means my health and ability to keep working this hard depends on your support. Thank you. See below for details on donation methods.

For several reasons, in the best interests of both parties, this is a written interview. The style of presentation will be the questions appearing on screen in text and myself reading the responses.

I would like to thank T.Rivas for his agreement to take part, and his rational approach to this issue.

The Sex Offender Register (an alternative approach)!…

01) The Sex Offender Register (an alternative approach)!


“The real effects that the sex offender register has have not been of much interest to the general public, who take for granted the idea that it’s there for the greater good of all. Research has shown that it’s doing more harm than good, most concerning of all that it increases the chances of re-offending.

PLEASE DO DONATE FUNDS TO SUPPORT MY WORK. THIS TAKES A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORT, NOT TO MENTION COURAGE AND I AM DEPENDING ON ONLINE DONATIONS TO MEET BASIC NEEDS!

To me it seems that the community is using sex offenders as yet another scapegoat for their own failures, and as a result of support for harsh punishments they’re doing more harm than good.

We Also Exist In The Atheist Community…

Elephant Graphic

Date: June 04, 2018

A tiny bit of elaboration…based on my comments in this post.

My Original Comment:

Almost threw this post straight into the trash, after encountering the negative “pedophile” comment…

It’s the sort of thing I’ve talked about in the past…

…In the atheist community, “pedophilia” is a rather typical talking point…always used in a manner to slight and demean the target.

…It’s a cheap, bigoted, hysterical tactic…which exposes a gross shortcoming within the atheist community.

Way too often…I find myself listening to some type of atheist media, thinking “this is really good”…and simultaneously putting together the post…when deep, or late, into the production…somebody slides in a nasty, snarky comment about “pedophiles”…

…A few times, I’ve posted the media…without having had the chance to get to the end [which I might do, a day or two later]…just to find out there is this sort of “middle finger” included in the media, for no good or intelligent reason.

…Why the hell do so many atheists have to be hell bent, on this ignorance?

Pedophile phobia is damn near cliché, in the atheist community.

You can barely watch any atheist media, without anticipating at least one swipe at “pedophiles”.

…I’m not just tired of hearing it…

…I’m tired of always feeling like I’m obliged to comment, on just what a brain dead, a-hole thing that was to do [on the part of self proclaimed “intelligent, fair minded truth seekers”, at that].

There is the obvious elephant in the room, that I am a pedophile myself…and I’m just fed up with the self entitlement of people, to endlessly take swipes at “pedophiles”…

…But there is also the real world reality, I’m quite painfully aware of…that religious institutions are literally quite ruthless towards people like me, who are pedophiles…or who otherwise like young people in a sexual manner.

I grew up in this setting…as a homosexual pedophile…And the church didn’t promote a damn thing, that encouraged me in a positive way, while going through my situation…

…In fact…it was the source of deep, dark, fucked up psychological hell…

Yet…there is this smug tendency amongst atheists…to go on insinuating as though being a pedophile in the Christian church, is akin to being at Disneyland.

Reality about this toxic environment, for anybody who is sexually unaccepted…is that it commonly makes you suicidal…It is “soul” destroying…It is poison…It will leave you psychologically maimed, for life….

You atheists out there who imply such things, clearly never experienced this first hand…Because your arrogant asses don’t have the first fucking clue, what you are talking about.

Pedophiles, hebephiles and ephebophiles are found in every social group and demographic…A fraction of the religious community, is “pedophilic”…

We also exist in the atheist community, Sherlock…

…Oh dear!…Shall the rest of the world start ignorantly railing against the atheist community, for being “a pedophile group”?…”a sanctuary for child rape”?…

…For once in your lives, would you actually think critically about an issue, currently trapped in the worst place of social ignorance and hysteria, as opposed to staying in your cozy, ultra easy, momentum riding, bashing religion and assorted social outcasts?!…

…Being both a pedophile and an atheist…I can tell you…

…being an atheist is pathetic easy, in comparison to being a pedophile in this world.

It’s time to put the identity politics away…and stop appealing to false stereotypes and strawmen.

Given the outcast and unjustly maligned nature of the atheist community…the people amongst it should know better, than to employ the same type of bigotries towards other minorities.

If the atheist community valued it’s integrity…it would stop doing this.

Awful Objections to Anti-Theism…

01) Awful Objections to Anti-Theism


“Anti-theism gets a bad rap from both atheists and the religious alike. With public figures like Jordan Peterson around, and droves of secular youtubers who go easy on religion, I think it’s worth discussing what anti-theism is, and what it isn’t. If only Hitchens was still around, public perception of anti-theism may be different.”
