I agree with Jessep. Peterson is a logical man and a deep critical thinker. He's the kind of person I'd love to debate one day.
That being said, I definitely don't agree with all of his positions. And in actuality, I don't know how many of his positions I could support. Just because you're smart, doesn't mean you're right. And a PSYCHOLOGY professor... who is willing to fully utilize his knowledge in that field... would likely be a dangerous foe to debate because they would be able to make their arguments sound compelling and very reasonable and supported by facts.
But if you're really smart you can deceive even yourself into think your opinion is correct on any particular issue.
What concerns me is how much of Peterson's positions appeal to a certain demographic. And at the same time, I don't see Peterson distancing himself from that demographic or from the fortune and fame that comes with it. It is, in essence, the very core of politics.
So it's kind of like he's good at masking whatever agenda he has in a way that helps him sell more books and advertisements. He understands the value of his influence and popularity and is okay with not being popular with everyone because he has a strong base.
The problem is that one can say the same about Trump. Trump realizes he has a strong base and knows how to feed them red meat by playing them against another side they disagree with. Peterson does the same thing on social issues. And therefore his biggest following are the biggest group of haters.
But that doesn't mean he's all wrong, either. Frankly, the social justice warrior thing started as a good cause but has gotten out of hand. Opponents might say they saw this happening from the beginning. Maybe they did. But the fact is that extremes in either direction typically result in the same over-corrective type of behavior... more extremes... more authoritarian types of measures to "fix" it; people giving up more and more power to one person in order to control other people. And these extremes don't stop the behavior they are targeting. It just drives it underground and gives it the appeal of also being "taboo".
Listen but don't trust NOBODY that maintains a following through political types of content curation.
