It has to do with the current political environment, people not actually listening to what he's saying or doing actual research on what he's saying, and group think. Not surprising, but sad nonetheless.


He is not doing himself any favors in this area, but I agree that people are being too quick to dismiss the totality of his work in light of his ego-driven public missteps.

What are his missteps and what's ego-driven about them?

All this controversy is good because it shines a light on how ridiculous the extreme left has become

yesterday i listened to a conversation about addiction and recovery between Peterson and Russell Brand... it was surprisingly civil and they agreed on quite a lot.

Peterson is always civil and professional, as far as I've seen.

Yeah that was interesting. I was ready to hate on Brand, but he seems to have reigned himself in a bit since the last time I heard him. I think they disagree with each other on a lot of things, but seem to respect each other.

I'm more on Susan's side... though, she doesn't make many strong, coherent arguments. I'd much rather see Sam Harris or Richard Dawkins or, best yet, Christopher Hitchens debating JP here.

"God is what you use to make sense of your life, by definition", Jordan says. Why does he have to conflate all that is good and all that makes sense and benefits humans with God? They can be separated.

Is it not the very nature of psychological processes that their validity is proportional to their effectiveness? If he has helped (allegedly) thousands of people get their shit together without making demands on others, it can’t be that bad.
