Bring the dank JP memes to this thread

He cries in this one  

Posted Images

Everyone who knows what alt-something means is retarted (or american). I`m listening to his lectures because I`m interested in philosophy and psychology not because he stands for some political view, wtf is this shitty thread 

it could help to know that the philosophy and psychology in his teachings are poured through his own sieve. if you're interested in both disciplines it might be better to read the sources and also consider other points of view.

yeah, the only reason people are actually listening to him is exactly because of this whole alt-right/SJW thing he's riding on and getting hyped off, not because he's actually good at anything.

it is, probably. shared lightning fast as a meme and absorbed quickly without questioning.

He will be arrested on a train for masturbating.

 

 

while researching lobsters he'll be lost at sea while diving using some kind of exotic air mixture for 200+ ft depths

TMZ will release pics of him passed out on the beach with a bible and an empty bottle of gin, two lobsters pinching his nipples. He angrily awakens and assaults the film crew, yelling “You philistines! Thou hath never succumbed to the painful pleasures of the lowly and yet mighty crustaceans!”

its been quite hard to watch or listen with his recent British visit, the media is voracious for anything & its partly self-inflicted, the Guardian appears obsessed currently which is a bit weird even for them

 

crying on R5 and a then a large London presentation platform got weepy, nothing wrong with emoting but it suggests a human on the edge at times

Supposing noone wants to have a real discussion about Peterson's ideas so may as well dank up the thread

I miss limpy

 

it's kind of exhausting. and there's just so many things to discuss.. you'd have to pick one or two things or discuss in a sort of macro level his big picture ideas. well, i would because i don't even understand it all or care enough to try to understand it more. :(

 

there are people who are professionally outraged who seem to have these discussions continuously on line. sort of makes me not even want to listen. it's like opening the door and seeing a giant ball of hardening oatmeal covered in razor blades bouncing around grumbling.. [closes door.. backs away...]

 

his free speech stance especially in a university setting is relevant.. see evergreen college in washington for example.. and i think the challenging of university students seem like a good thing in a college... 

 

the pronouns thing seems pretty specific to canada and that law they want to pass regarding hate speech..  it feels strange..  i's easy to let lines of thought go to extremes and fears of a fascist like control of language. feels very modern type of concern.. like everyone has too much time to think about these things and we'd be better off keeping busy but that's probably my lazy brain... or apathy. 

 

what i find sad is that often a university will invite a controversial speaker as a means to debate that person's ideas but then the student body is so offended they just shout everyone down and no discourse can happen.  it's a bummer because that's where the actual debate of those ideas and intellectually picking apart of things could happen, be filmed, put on youtube etc and people might come to understand each other better or ideas better.. and then make actually be informed and figure out why they are angry or not or whatever..

The pronouns thing is very specific to Canada, and has no bearing on an individual’s freedom of expression

Sorry, I should clarify - your private freedom of expression is in no way limited. If you work for a publicly funded institution like a public university, then discrimination on the basis of gender identity and gender expression in that institution is not acceptable.

 

What happened with Shepherd was obviously wrong, as no complaint had been submitted. Still, her freedom of expression has hardly been limited - she has a very popular twitter account. It's almost as if her professors haven't heard of the Streisand effect.
