The Problem with Jordan Peterson…

Date: October 30, 2018

01) The Problem with Jordan Peterson

“–Our long form analysis of Jordan Peterson, and more specifically the movement that has been created around him, including its ideology, shortcomings, and more”

Despite whatever personal flaws there might be…I like Jordan Peterson…I like articulate thinkers, who can express themselves.

…I like being pushed and challenged, to contemplate in ways I never have before…It expands my own psychological capacity…Jordan is one of those types of people, who can do that.

It’s true that Jordan came to prominence, in the capacity of a resistance to outrageous law…and push back against outrage culture.

He stepped up into a social role…which was in desperate need for someone to do what he did…because virtually nobody else was doing it.

Yes…any number of people with balls and a spine, could have done this in some capacity…But Jordan brought something unique, which resonated with large groups of people.

If it bothers one, that Jordan is currently such a focal point in this social struggle…might I suggest…that what should bother one infinitely more…is the fact that the forms of practical, good, broadly accepted advice being administered by Jordan…are not coming from the common places and relationships in culture, where it rightly should?

People are flocking to Jordan, an imperfect and fallible human being…because they’re not getting it elsewhere, in their daily relationships and experiences.

We can nit pick at the messenger endlessly…

…But maybe we should pay more attention, to just why stating the obvious has become such a rarity in human culture?…and why being open and honest, is so taboo?

Republicans Caught Rigging Election For Ted Cruz?…

01) Republicans Caught Rigging Election For Ted Cruz?

“Voting machines in Texas are switching people’s votes!


Several Texas organizations have received reports of voting machines switching votes in the high-profile Senate race between incumbent Ted Cruz, who is reportedly not the Zodiac Killer (allegedly) and upstart candidate Beto O’Rourke.

The Houston Chronicle reports that multiple voters have documented incidents during early voting where they have used the straight-ticket option (where the machine is supposed to automatically choose the designated candidates for one party), only to discover that the voting machine has selected the Senate candidate for the opposing party.”

Court says ‘pedophilia does not apply’: because perpetrator is a woman…

01) Court says ‘pedophilia does not apply’ — because perpetrator is a woman

Thanks to feinmann0!

“Court says ‘pedophilia does not apply’ because perpetrator is a woman.

A Toronto woman was sentenced to prison for child porn-related offences, but she avoided being classified as a dangerous offender — and her gender played a part in that decision.

Justice Kathleen Caldwell agreed with Dr. Mark Pearce, an expert witness, “that the current research suggests that women do not suffer from paraphilic disorders apart from masochism. This fact lends further weight to the conclusion that pedophilia does not apply to you.”

This is astonishing…

…not that I want anyone who’s sucked the penis of a giggling toddler to be destroyed over it…

…But…she sounds rather pedophilic to me…and I know quite a lot about this topic.

They seem to be denying it, due to it’s relative rarity…and lack of empirical research.
