    The right may not be as impressed by Peterson when they find out that he's teaching a course on the Bible from an evolutionary psychology POV and not as a practicing Christian.

    He's a smart dude, in any event.
    I want something good to die for to make it beautiful to live.

    Sorry, demanding lockstep thinking is purely a left wing thing these days.

    Um, is he? One of my favorite commentators was mocking Peterson because he apparently gets very post-modern about 'truth' and 'facts' - quite the opposite of the hard-nosed "facts, reason, and logic" description in the thread title.

    In the OP video he's peddling some sort of delusional pseudo-science about how guys need to 'grow up' by being 'affirmed' and that women are 'miserable' if their partners aren't 'strong'. He seems pretty crazy.

    I see towards the end of the OP video he argues that any emphasis on "group identity" is terrible (which he utterly bizarrely claims is the similarity between modern trans-activists and Mao's China and thus 'shows' that transgender activism is the 'same philosophy' as what 'killed millions of people')... I wonder if he identifies as having a "Christian" group identity? The guy is nutty.

    Listening to the OP vid, the guy reminds me of Sam Harris in his level of click-baity disingenuousness in the headline claims followed by back-peddling to a mainstream position when challenged on them combined with feigned outrage that the critics are saying he said something he never technically said (but totally meant to imply in order to click-bait / trigger people), also combined with a strange mix of ignorance and arrogance where he thinks his narrow field can explain everything and supersedes other fields .

    Sam Harris, of course, during the heyday of the Bush regime torture program wrote an essay for a general audience titled "In defense of torture", and when critics complained he was giving cover to the war-crimes of the Bush administration Harris responded effectively "well of course I don't endorse torture in general and I think it's a terrible political policy and that Bush regime is totally terrible for doing it, and all I was really saying is there's theoretically one or two hypothetical situations where torture could be okay, and my critics are so awful terrible people for daring to criticize me for the click-baity claim I made that I totally don't stand by. P.S. Neuroscience explains everything, and it's what I did my PhD in, ergo, I know everything, and I will now proceed to make ridiculous claims about unrelated topics."

    Peterson seems the same but with gender equality issues. He has the same click-baity "I totally object to the requirement that lecturers be respectful to students and so call them by the name and gender they prefer to be known as!", and then when challenged he backpeddles to "well I would always call students the way they wish to be called because that's just the respectful thing to do, and how dare critics suggest I ever said otherwise! All I was objecting to was being told to do it because it was respectful as opposed to choosing to do it myself because it was respectful. How dare people constantly misrepresent me! P.S Clinical Psychology explains everything, and it's what I study, ergo, I know everything, and I will now proceed to make ridiculous claims about unrelated topics. Also feminists/transgender activists = Chairman Mao, because groups and stuff."
