I gave him 4, he's exhausting.
He's still wrong, and his wrongness is particularly odd given the distinct differences between the US and Canadian policy. Americans aren't being separated into classes by Cultural Marxism, they are being separated into classes by modern American economic policy.
You can't look 40 years of stagnant middle class wages in the US and increasing chasm of wealth inequality, alongside a simultaneous lack of a healthcare social safety net that exists in every other modern market economy, and say, "Yep, nothing wrong here." You can't look at LGBT suicide rates and say, "Yeah, that's about right." There are a lot of issues progressives take up that the actual conservative politicians in actual power in this country have absolutely no credible answers for.
Peterson will go on and on about Stalin even after acknowledging that nobody is advocating Marxist states any more. Then what the fuck is the purpose of this tangent? A gender studies professor at Berkeley is not going to start a death camp, she's going to boycott In N Out Burger. Maybe discussing the individual issues at hand, and what he thinks should be done, would be more productive than droning on about Stalin.
He is correct that in many cases, the far left is annoying. However, he overreacts insanely by going on inevitable "random" tangents to death camps when you implement communism, which he just acknowledged in your video nobody actually wants to do. Or he goes off on fringe-y pronoun use when dealing on a subject of LGBT basic human dignity, where the far right is clearly far, far more in the wrong. It's like looking at a Sunni mass grave and saying, "Well actually, the Sunni faith's position on the prophet's successor is really problematic."
Since he tangents so will I. This shit pisses me off worse the more we learn about the good old days. Mickey posted an article today about nuns and priests torturing and killing American orphans in the 40's and 50's. I wouldn't read it at work. And as sick and fucked up as the treatment those orphans got, the unstated tragedy is that if you were four-year old in the 40's whose parents couldn't care for you, a Catholic orphanage where you'd get your dick cut on or burned with a fireplace poker or maybe raped and *literally praying for death* was pretty much the best option you had going for you. Teenage nuns were certainly in no position to be caring for dozens of kids. No training, no education on the subject, kids are traumatized by being removed from their families, I'm sure they were acting out sometimes. No command discipline in the military can lead to atrocities, I don't think a habit inoculates against that.
The far left, particularly at universities, is wrong about many things and are quite annoying. However, if you were looking at most of the issues they take up, particularly the economic ones he can't seem to stop himself from going back to, the right in this country is far more wrong while also wielding power today.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.
