89) Jordan Peterson: In Conclusion – No Rules for Life

I don’t believe people need “rules,” any rules, for living an optimal life, and for creating an optimal society.  Let me say that again — we don’t need Rules.  None.  Zero.  Zilch.  Nada. What people need is CONNECTION.  We need to be ensconced in a community of people who we know deeply, live with interdependently,…

88) Jordan Peterson: Part 7 – Psychology at the Ending of the World; Subsection 2 – The Doctrine of Original Awesomeness

So what’s the alternative?  Do we need more “rules” to help us live like half-decent people who aren’t slobs and losers and depressed and too-agreeable and “weak” and addicted?  Do we need more external authority figures structuring our lives for us?  Do we need more Dad-advice telling us to clean up our rooms, stand up…

61) Jordan Peterson, Part 5: The Perfect House Problem; Subsection 4 – Scandinavian Atheist Indigenous Immigrant Women Should Rule the World

I have no problem accepting the statistical inevitability that some people in what I’m loosely calling “the oppressed communities” or “the protest communities” are coming from a place of resentment and bruised egos over-asserting themselves.  When they “speak truth to power” surely SOME of their motivations are ego-driven attempts to feel better about themselves, to…
