Thanks @Eagles4Life I have enjoyed our little exchange of views nevertheless and it’s great that we could do this without dissenting into cyber biff which would have made it more entertaining for others in some ways. I know if provoked both of us are quite adept at throwing the bombs so to speakThanks, @Red Pill At this point, we are just going around in circles without any real prospect of finding a mutually agreeable perspective on Jordan Peterson. I agree with you that the fundamentalist left and the extreme right both employ similar tactics to discredit each other's arguments. So at least, we can find agreement on something.
I find rigid fundamentalism (in any form or any ideology) to be dangerous and harmful
because of its very nature and inherent intolerance of dissent. My perspective on Jordan Peterson is heavily influenced by the fact that his views are disseminated/utilised/interpreted/twisted by any number of (what I consider to be) fundamentalist groups. It's doubtful that my perspective on JPs views will change anytime soon.
I don’t particularly want to convince you that JBP is great etc. I just don’t think he is the champion of toxic masculinity you appear to believe he is. But we agree to disagree.
I personally would never negatively categorise someone’s ideas and in the case of Peterson his life’s work because others have interpreted it in a way that promotes their dark agenda. If we adopted this kind of thinking to all ideas etc we as a race would be virtually intellectually bankrupt.
I think Petersons biggest flaw is a lack of empathy when conveying some of his opinions he Is almost ruthless in this regard. This does not serve him well as it can be polarising in some instances.
From my understanding of him his biggest pet hate and source of motivation is in fact rigid fundamentalism and the ideology that drives it, though his focus is directed at left extremes and the pitfalls or the dead end that he believes postmodernism represents…. so in some ways you have something in common with him please take this with a pinch a salt 😂
Looking forward to a big season next year mate…
