60) Jordan Peterson, Part 5: The Perfect House Problem; Subsection 3 – Jordan’s Tarantulas

The dark & twisty side to Jordan’s rhetoric on this pleasant-sounding-advice in “12 Rules for Life”, becomes more evident the further you read, and the deeper you go into the patterns of social media posting that Jordan focuses on.  What starts as “sort yourself out, so you can effect change in the world better”, becomes…

58) Jordan Peterson, Part 5: The Perfect House Problem; Subsection 1 – He Who Is Without Sin

============================================================= Tarantula Identification Assessment Tool Put a check beside each of the following that describes you, at least “somewhat”.   – Do you feel self-conscious about your looks?   – Do you procrastinate?   – Do you criticize yourself? a lot?  – Do you watch too much TV, play too many video games, spend too…

47) Jordan Peterson, Part 3: The Bucko Mistake; Sub-section 2: Metaphorically Terrible Advice

Second, the metaphoric. Posture-straightening aside, Jordan’s Rule #1 is obviously about so much more — it’s about being Alpha, not beta.  It’s about facing the terrible existential burden of life, accepting your individual responsibility, and applying yourself to the challenges in front of you.  It’s about entering situations with confidence, with a can-do mentality.  I…

46) Jordan Peterson: Part 3: The Bucko Mistake; Sub-section 1: Literally Terrible Advice

(from https://www.reddit.com/r/Jordan_Peterson_Memes/comments/5ywcxt/sort_yourself_out_bucko/) Jordan pulls no punches in his public statements, calling entire university departments illegitimate and advocating for their de-funding, calling people who espouse “Leftist” or “socialist” views intellectually naive, subscribers to a murderous ideology, malevolent.  blah blah blah I imagine Jordan should expect people to pull no punches in return.  So…okay…. Jordan’s book, 12 Rules…

44) Jordan Peterson, Part 2: More problems…; Subsection 2: Bear Food reasoning in Darwinian/Functionalist clothing

Accusing Jordan of Bear Food reasoning is, I admit, a Straw Man attack if it’s taken superficially.  I mean, c’mon, you’ve watched the YouTube videos; Jordan DESTROYS weak Leftie arguments with ease…. He is way too smart to build so much of his thinking on top of such elemental errors in reasoning, logic flaws that…

43) Jordan Peterson, Part 2: More Problems with Fundamental Assumptions; Sub-section 1: The Naturalistic Fallacy

— from — https://www.google.ca/search?q=running+away+from+a+bear&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjtjd6Ng_LdAhVk2oMKHUJxDOsQ_AUIDigB&biw=1422&bih=780#imgrc=WH65B9lCNXoMQM: Sub-section 1: The Naturalistic Fallacy I get a kick out of the old joke — How fast do you need to run in order to outrun a bear? …. You know, faster than the other guy….. …………… The weird thing about getting eaten by bears is that it IS totally natural,…

41) Jordan Peterson, Part 1, Subsection 4: Moral Foolishness

(from https://geektyrant.com/news/netflixs-voltron-legendary-defender-has-a-78-episode-commitment-season-3-premieres-in-2017) Let’s take a look for a moment at what you end up with when you put together what we covered in the previous two essays: Philosophical Foolishness and Theoretical Foolishness. You get a view of human nature that is disturbingly unbalanced, highlighting the parts of our evolutionary heritage that are most compatible with…
