“Seth Andrews chronicles his personal story for a live Minneapolis audience, the event sponsored by Minnesota Atheists.”
I really appreciate Seth’s assessment.

“Jeremiah Harvey, the 9-year-old boy accused of groping a woman at a Brooklyn convenience store last week, told “Good Morning America” that he was deeply embarrassed by the allegation, which was proved false.
The incident was the latest to go viral on social media in which a white person called the police on a black person over apparently innocuous actions.
“I’ve had this lately on my mind,” Harvey, who is black, said while seated next to his mother in the tearful interview that aired Friday.
“I felt humiliated,” he added.
The incident happened when Harvey was at the convenience store with his mother, Someko Bellille, and his younger sister. Surveillance video showed the woman, Teresa Klein, who is white, leaning over a counter when the boy’s backpack seems to graze her rear, his hands clearly not touching her.
But Klein thought Harvey groped her and appeared to call police. (New York police told CNN they had no record of any such call.) In video of the incident, she is seen shouting into her phone that she had been “sexually assaulted by a child.”
“Cornerstore Caroline” is an a-hole.

This is a new, all time high posting record…June 2018 has been dethroned!
This month is actually going to grow a little bit more, also…because I’ve got some unpublished posts I wrote during October…which I’ll post when I get around to it.
…I’m calling it now, however…at 174 posts.

“–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?
