For the Feminist, the war on the family has been a resounding success - women have been 'liberated' from the 'comfortable concentration camp' of the family. In the process women are more likely to be unhappy, while many young women grow up feeling that a natural desire to raise a family is fundamentally wrong.
For men, separated from their fathers, American and Western masculinity has never been more precarious. The female has taken their role, and they have nothing else to provide. The very traits that fathers instilled in their sons - the use of reason, the capability to suffer and work without reward, the desire to be responsible for the family - these traits have died, leaving an entire generation at the whim of postmodern, radical Leftist revolutionaries.
Devastatingly low birth rates, high divorce rates, relationship dysfunction and a war against instinctual concepts of male and female - all of this explains the immense popularity of Jordan Peterson. This is why his YouTube videos are predominantly viewed by men. In a faithless world, where even the most basic human truths are assaulted on a daily basis, Peterson offers the 'Logos', the struggle for Truth. Young men and women are starving for it. The veneer of 'victimhood' is growing thin."
wow. just spent the last 3 or 4 hours in class. This guy is the real deal. He gets labeled everything under the sun from the left. Every name they can come up with. He scares the hell out of them. Because none of them stick. Truth it seems.... if done well, supported and defended.... is a bright and disinfecting light.
Articulates the truth and refuses to have it twisted into how the left wants to have such truth presented. As the famous movie line..... "they (literally) can't handle the truth!!"
I can see about a hundred more hours taking his "online classes". Go to his website. If you click on videos.... you will get 1 and 2hour movies..... I'm starting on the series. Click on "clips" to get a taste. Pretty cool. This guy is fearless. Honest. And sharp as a razor.
I also love his rejection of political correctness and calling out the ridiculousness of the extremists in many walks of life and the plain argument for normalcy.
I love his point calling out the feminist movement for their silence regarding Islam's subjugation of women for its hypocrisy, although I don't agree with his reasoning for it and I think his reasoning betrays his team mindset. I think their silence has nothing to do with a craving for male dominance and everything to do with feminism's group-think: all the anti-Islamists are conservative and almost all hard-core Christians are conservative so in the mind of the liberal, the liberal must be pro-Islam because the enemy of my enemy is my friend, thus, feminism's silence on the subjugation of women by Islam.
There's things that I don't like about his opinions, but I won't get into them here because they'll fall on deaf.
IdyllwildArcher, I guess you've heard what he has to say about 50 Shades of Grey and feminism. Hilarious. Very true but hilarious. His take on the purpose of life: "to responsibly and competently incarnate the logos" (paraphrased) is brilliantly simple and eloquent in my opinion. And while he leaves it to his audience to define God for themselves, that perspective certainly orders one's life. I believe we were made for work but not necessarily as defined by modern culture and, perhaps, the folks that find themselves desperate are out of touch with a grounding principle. It's easy to get overwhelmed by the infinite transitory elements of life without such definitive macro precepts to act as landmarks.
Such as the question many ask is "why do people do cocaine to the point it ruins their lives or they die?" Wrong question. The question is "why DOESN'T EVERYONE do cocaine until it ruins their lives or they die?" Don't deny that there is an instant and intensely gratifying pleasure from using it. That's a fact, a reality. What mechanism KEEPS them from the instant and very gratifying pleasure? To deny it. Or never having tried it in the first place?
BTW, I just got as far as that..... so far havn't gotten to his answer to his questions yet..... =D
Regardless.... very interesting insights and points of view so far. And the left STILL hates him..... so there has to be that going for him..... if he wasn't so good at it or lied about a bunch of stuff so they could fire him...... he'd have been fired some time ago I'd think....
Flame suit going on, now.....
But they repostedit.... heheheh....
If you can articulate views and positions they don't like...... and they literally have no answer or rebuttal to it..... that makes you dangerous.
