Culture Wars/Current Controversies

My Real Beef with Jordan Peterson

This article is a reminder of why I am not a “culture warrior.” I generally find Jordan Peterson to be a boring, substanceless “thinker” with a shallow center-right outlook whose “conservatism” amounts to a tenth-rate version of what Burke or Nietzsche said centuries ago. Nor do I care for the SJWish (everything is “hurtful” slave morality) paradigm in which this critique of Peterson is framed. I find certain aspects of European-style conservatism or the far-right to be interesting, but not the kind of milquetoast bourgeois conservatism of the Anglosphere. Just like I find actual Marxists to be interesting at times, but not social democrats and SJWs.

Why Can’t I Look Away from this Trainwreck

I rip on Canadian psychologist & professional Messy Bitch* Jordan Peterson a lot. I dedicated an entire podcast series on Queer Eye episodes one could watch instead of reading his anxiety inducing book. It’s a joke, but it’s kind of not because I have serious issues with his entire schtick.

First off, I want to clarify what I don’t have a problem with because his fans, some of whom are friends of mine, seem to not understand where I am coming from when I critique him. I don’t like to kick people when they’re down & believe addiction is a very serious matter. I have lived with (and loved) addicts my entire life & have a great deal of sympathy for them. I believe a large portion of people struggle with going a little too hard on the substances sometimes & am avidly pro-drug & pro-drug decriminalization.

  1. Peterson doesn’t know shit about religion or philosophy but he talks about it anyway, fucking moron can’t take his own advise to sue the fuck up when you don’t know what you’re talking about. Peterson is normie trash for normie trash.
