This interview was pretty remarkable. It's a half hour of this woman trying to tell him what he's saying, based on what in her mind the evil patriarch would say, and him having to correct her. It's actually a quite interesting watch re: feminism relative to pay gap, gender equality, etc.

I'd agree that he has his audience pegged.

Agree totally. As does she.

He uses logic and facts the entire interview, and the interviewer uses nothing but emotion. If that's the takeaway from this interview, then it's quite an indictment on modern feminism.

Watching an interview with this subject immediately removes a modicum of merit from both parties.

Peterson always comes across as slightly sociopathic to me- his responses to emotional individuals are clinical. Feminists in general are clinical.

I've actually never watched him before this interview, so I just have this to go on. In this particular one, he's reasoned, and she's not. She just keeps on with "So you're saying [insert stuff he didn't say]"

Check out Dave's podcast thread. Really good interview with Peterson covering other topics.

I watched most of his bible series and probably about ten lectures. He's quirky but brilliant. He has a hard time conveying himself sometimes because some of his ideas are so instinctual in his mind but not easily grasped by traditional thinkers. He's too smart for his audience and his ideas are very abstract. Hence why most intellectuals write him off as kooky.

I could only get through half the video. That woman is a complete idiot. All she did was try and twist his words into something negative. There was clearly no room for actual discussion of anything with her. Seems to be pretty standard with these types of things.

Gonna post this up in my Podcast thread too, once I remember where the hell it is, but Jordan Peterson came BACK to H3H3 Podcast! If you haven't seen his first one, I liked it a LOT.

Watched this interesting take on Peterson recently after checking out a channel from a video I think @Missile posted.

Half? I'm cringing at 7 minutes in, like "Holy crap, come on". Some people just need a camera on them so they can yell at a wall for half an hour, then broadcast it to absolutely nobody.

Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro, Sam Harris, Joe Rogan.. Probably my favorite personalities to listen to. All four of them are brilliant.

Harris and Peterson round three coming soon. For some reason they just shut down and babble when in the same room. Maybe they can talk this time.

3/4 I'm with ya, though I don't know Sam Harris by name.

All of them make me think in interesting ways I usually don't.

I thought Ben Shapiro was cool until I saw this clip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aK8mbA083hE All my liking of him was just swept away in an instant.

It's apparent that he's gifted and that's why he views everyone else as lazy/stupid/evil. So he gets up on a podium and trivializes everyone else's problems. "well you should just stop being poor" etc. It's hard for me to disassociate that context from him now. Though he can still be pretty entertaining and says some smart things occasionally.

I'm confused. A video of him playing the violin as a 12-year-old caused you to go from liking him to not liking him?

When you put together the things he says and his general attitude with the fact that he's a spoon fed child prodigy, it becomes obvious that it has affected his worldview.

For a more balanced viewpoint you would rather hear from someone who started without much.

I would prefer to listen to someone who approaches things from an extremely logical standpoint.

Feel free to poke holes in his logic?

I agree with him on pretty much everything.

yeah I agree.. which is why I still think he makes good points from time to time. He can be pretty logical. Every now and then though he sounds like he thinks he's being super logical and can't imagine why anyone would disagree with him.

p.s. I just watched this FreedomToon, Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro are both in it and it's pretty funny

I liked his stuff took, him pretty seriously until I heard him dissertate on the reasons the Jewish faith was the only correct one- just another dogma spewing religious goon who claims he doesn't use religion in his debating.

Google. You'll see lots of it. There's a decent discussion with Sam Harris on his podcast "Waking Up" with some of the sentiment as well.

It's very easy for me to shrug someone off who says some of those things. If your life is based on a deluded tradition why would I value any of your "serious" viewpoints?
