    Default Jordan Peterson: What is the post modern lens?

    You might well ask, unsurprisingly it just a load of bollocks.

    As Gustave Le Bo lamented: “The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduces them. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim.”

    In short the man should be pitied. I hope he accepts the mental health he needs. What is keeping him from getting the help he needs is a bunch of crazy people telling his self abuse is right.

    to be honest it sounds like the typical modernist mumbojumbo about postmodernism......

    You are just feeding the delusions of a very mentally sick man. It is best just to ignore Peterson, and hope he agrees to getting the help he desperately needs.

    Is society going to collapse because we have postmodernism? Of course not, it is an art movement that does not hurt society.

    Jordan Peterson is the stupid man’s smart person, I don’t remember who stated this, but they nailed it.

    The man became addicted to Benzos because he couldn’t follow his own advice and fight through the pain. He was weak and became a drug addict.

    Postmodernism isn't just an art movement. It made far-reaching claims about truth (it's relative, subjective, my truth is as good as your truth) which appealed to smarties in France.

    People thought it had deconstructed itself by the 1990s. But no, it took root in America and produced more crap.

    It is sad to watch someone with that much social power just destroy himself. We are used to watching rock stars doing it, but now we are watching social commentators doing it. Limbaugh, Peterson, Beck, Jones, etc. these men are destroying themselves with drugs and delusional behavior.

    If their fans really cared about them, they would cut them off.

    This could easily be describing yourself, Salty.

    its what happens when you start to believe your own bs and that you are a superstar, everyone of the personalities you me ruined succumbed to that. They believe they are experts on everything. There is no such person and it’s got to be very taxing on both physical and mental well being.
    The nihilism alone has to create mental illness. No wonder he suffers from depression.

    It mostly is deconstruction of art... I am not a big fan, but it is not on parr with Nazism. It is more like country music, or boy band music, which I am also not a big fan of.

    And this is why Peterson is not getting treatment for his drug abuse and mental problems... Because losers like you keep telling him that he is great.

    He is great, you're just a mental pygmy in comparison.

    Peterson is definitely better at manipulating people than I am. I am better at Computer Engineering than he will ever be.

    Amy Whinehouse was a much better singer than I will ever be, and now she is dead because of her mental health and drug problems. I on the other hand am doing well, and there is no reason to believe I will die any time soon.

    Similarly, Peterson is on a downward spiral that I would never get on. His ability to manipulate people is making the downward spiral unavoidable. Primavera is literally killing Peterson.

    Can you imagine the pushback any medical doctor that told Peterson to quit the drugs would get?
