The most interesting thing being your unwillingness to watch the videos. Why?
With you - always.
Watch my videossssssssssssssssssssssssssssss, do it nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww what is wrong with you?
I don't think you know what you think or are at least sheepish about the video and your like of it which is why you won't post your opinions.
you getting paid by the fucking click?? why do you think you can dish out demands and not answer a single question put to you?
Why should I? What is there in them I might be interested in?
As a matter of practicality, though, I don't like YouTube videos and I've never watched anything more than the shortest clip that way. It's not something I find comfortable.
Answers from you? where?
Which poses the question of where the hell you watch your videos. You're not one of those awful people that watches videos on Bing are you?
No, I watch TV on TV.
This bloke, Jordan Peterson, has just loomed into view in my house. So ta for that, started listening but got to go to work now.
My youngest lad is 13 and likes to argue black is white. The other day he had a crack at defending Trumps separation policy at the Mexican border
Anyway he’s been watching this bloke (not in relation to that particular argument but in general). So have taken a look and the main things I find are motivating speeches about making your bed on a morning and breaking down goals to achievable steps and having some self respect (all of which I heartily agree with) but will dig a bit deeper I think.
Peterson gets completely pinned here. Not by an academic or a journalist (and obviously not by any of the students whose useless protests are only succeeding in getting him more fame and success) but by a comedian:
Saw this but didn’t want to be pilloried as a bits and pieces Walt
I linked to it from Peterson’s twitter, where he seemed to give a shoulder shrugging “fair one” in response
I’d like to think that he arrogantly thought a light interview with a comedian wouldn’t require much thought and he was free styling a bit. Which if you look at any of his lectures you see he goes off piste when it’s not a short sharp question-answer format where he is attacked and defends
He is a good fit for the “give him enough rope” treatment
Yes, I agree, which is why the students' attempts to 'no platform' him are so idiotic.
He does that a lot, there was a good debate I listened to between him and Susan Blackmore and he does step down rapidly if caught on a point of logic or something he hasn’t thought about.
I disagree with him on a heap of stuff, but he does seem to follow the “argue as if you are right, listen as if you are wrong” rule in a pretty consistent and
I agree he gets a bit carried away when given rein for freestyle monologuing.
He really ties himself up in knots in this one.
Well, he more just contradicted his own beliefs massively. No fun when you make new friends and realise they are a bunch of numbnuts while sitting jetlagged in a studio.
I kind of liked this older one:
it's not actually him
Are you really, really sure?
It certainly seems like an instantiation of the archetypal essence of Jordan B Peterson.

This made me clean my room.
