Jordan Peterson: Why You Have To Fight Postmodernism

Postby AndyC » Tue Jul 04, 2017 7:21 am

Jordan Peterson is a Canadian clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto - he absolutely nails the philosophy of the left/SJWs and how to counter it. This is one short speech of his:

I've been a fan of Jordan Petersen's for a while now. He hits the issues with absolute clarity of thought - a feature that is clearly lacking from the left, who can only communicate in terms of clarity of feelings. Well, I very clearly feel like all SJWs should be taken out and shot, but it is a good thing for them that my feelings have nothing to do with whether or not they should be shot.

The difference between the SJW cult and the rest of the reasoning world is that the SJWs would never draw the above distinction, whereas people who process issues by thinking their way through them rather than feeling their way through them would always recognize that (A) logic is inescapable, and (B) feelings are fickle and unreliable.

I'm now a fan of Jordan Peterson.

Thanks AndyC,

His short video says it all.

I hope everyone on this forum (to start with) will watch/listen to it and to quote TAM: " He hits the issues with absolute clarity of thought...

What issues?

Watch and listen and you'll be glad you did!

Thank you for this post. This, like Denis Prager's Prager University video clips may just help people come to understand that freedom comes with responsibility. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke

Jordan Peterson paints paints a wonderfully clear understanding of why/how the left is left.

My words: There's not a country in the world whose citizens have benefitted by socialism/communism. (they used to hold up Sweden as a great example of how socialism/communism is workable and we see how that's working out...)

I found Jordan Peterson's clarity something I'll look for elsewhere and watch the video here again.

It's worth it.
