Someone here applauded a hit piece on Peterson in Vox. That's serious stupidity, willful or otherwise. If we want to analyze or critique or slam someone, let's do it with the best available evidence and reasoning and not look for something, anything, sufficiently mean-spirited that condemns someone who the latest update deems an Unperson.

To clarify further, if someone wants to criticize NASA, fine, but don't do it with a flat earth video. If you want to criticize the CDC, it should be with analysis from Johns Hopkins or some other legitimate source, not some anti-vax page. There are things to criticize Peterson for, but let's look at what he actually says and what that actually means.

Sam Harris podcast debating Vox's Editor-At-Large Ezra Klein. If you want to see the woke-ness of Vox and their assault on critical thinking, just take a listen.

This guy is turning into self-parody. Holy shit
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

As a friend told me, “Before taking advice from someone, I ask myself, ‘Would I change places with them?’”

This could be overweight people telling us how to eat, out-of-shape people telling us how to exercise, or unhappy people peddling self-help.

What do you mean by that? Oops, I said “do”. Is that wrong? Dammit, said “is”. Shit.

We could edit anyone's video to make them look stupid.

Peterson wins supporters because he talks back to Cancel Culture.

Here Peterson handles a BBC "journalist"..... does he sound self parodying here?

He speaks of hierarchical systems, that they are implicit in our biology.

Comments like "In order to think you have to risk being offensive". "Power is competence" is not a bad idea.

I think he's probably having some kind of mental health issue, but this doesn't look like a doctored or edited video to me.

Was it before or after he was hospitalized for anxiety med addiction?

I'll have to pass on judging editing of the video. I do not do that sort of a thing professionally. Do you?
