    I don’t even have a problem with that really. The meandering delivery, I mean. I wouldn’t pay to watch it. A two-four, and the right friend and I could reproduce the same thing on the cheap in my own living room. Sometimes I even enjoy it, every sentence walking the line between abstract poetry, puzzle, and dadaism. It’s just when it’s wielded passive-aggressively in matters that might actually impact people. Then I believe the technical term for that sort of argument style is ‘being cagey as fuck’.

    If Peterson and I were locked in a room together, our duelling verbosity could only end in some sort of highlander scenario. I never mastered the trick of concealing a sword in my clothing, especially since I overheat easily and can’t do duster jackets. The challenges of philosophy.

    I’ll be honest, I find it hard to understand what he’s talking about.  But there must be something about the general “stand up straight, shine your shoes” tenor that can benefit lost young men.

    Here is an article about Jordan Peterson from a Vancouver interview about JP on religion.

    Some of that makes sense to me straight away, but some of it I don’t understand at first sight.
