its almost 3 hours long but it's absolutely worth watching because of how thoroughly the trash panda bodies jorp

e: going into it I knew it was going to be outlandishly outmatched but never in my wildest dreams would jorp prepare for the drat thing by reading only the manifesto the night before. the drat thing was commissioned by french communists.

The building was on fire and it wasn't my fault.

He's a weird dumbass with impressive breadth but zero depth of knowledge, who sounds intelligent and profound to idiots but doesn't communicate any useful insights. His entire career was built on even loonier online leftists trying to cancel him, and him appearing to be the more reasonable and less crazy one in comparison.

I bet he'd be one of those university lecturers that would get into weird rambling tangents into unrelated stuff because he has a captive audience of gormless undergrads. Like I had a marketing lecturer that would always start talking poo poo about communism for 10-15 minutes at a time.

I took an Astronomy class because it somehow fit one of my General Ed requirements, and our professor loved to talk about the dangers of cellphones and microwave radiation.

But the textbook for that class was a really cheap printout packet, so he was a good guy in my book.

How can anyone look at that melted statue of a man and hear his kermit the frog voice and think he's the least bit strong.
he regurgitates old delusions of rugged individualism for people who feel the sting of capitalist alienation but still want to cling to strongman fantasies so that they don't have to admit that the people who have it worse than them might need something other than to try harder

like ayn rand, it doesn't matter if they're demonstrably failures by their own metric, as long as they're telling you what you want to hear

I was sidelined by Jordan Peterson becoming a goon household name. It turns out that as he became more well known, he started to puppet some alt right talking points. Which was really sad to discover.

I had previously listened to a fair amount of his older youtube classroom footage, where he presented some sound ideas. Fundamental concepts like like orienting yourself towards those that have characteristics that you admire, and learning to understand what it is about those characteristics that appeal to you. He had lots of good material on self actualization. He also wasn't afraid to guide you into topics that weren't easy to approach. He spent a lot of time parsing the work of Carl Yung -- which Peterson cautioned against taking lightly, as getting to know and recognize the parts of your self which you typically hide or deny existing is something that CAN help you move forward and grow as a person, but it can also break your self image if you're not experienced and prepared, or move too quickly. But it was the depth and risk of his work that made him stand out to me. Usually a self help book seller just offers platitudes and wouldn't risk exposing the reader to anything as advanced as Yung.

(granted, I think these lectures were for graduate level psychology students, not your average person seeking help on youtube, but it was helpful for me.)

I know SA hates the guy, but his older material was really the sort of thing you had to pay a lot of money to have access to via university. He put it all online for free, which is cool.

IIRC, there was a lengthy article from a few years back that went into why JP was bad and harmful, but also mentioned something about how he'd made a blog post about how easy it would be to become an alt-right grifter shortly before he reinvented himself as one. Can't find the article now, though. Anyone remember it?

It's actually quite risky to expose impressionable students to bad psychiatry. See also: Jordan Peterson
