Have you ever watched a lecture of Jordan Peterson? This is a guy who teaches people how to get out of PTSD and depression and seriously discusses how horrors like Auschwitz can be stopped in the future. He also talks a lot about philosophy as well. How anyone can think of Peterson as "a clown" is beyond me, he probably helped way more people cope with the horrors of their lives than 99% of humanity and is often very a-political.
Same with Dave Rubin (whom you didn't mention): I like Dave Rubin's YouTube show a lot and watched a lot of episodes - then, one day, a major german news publication (Der Spiegel) called him "one of the leaders of the fascist alt-right movement". What the hell? This guy talks to both sides and actually had a very heated discussion with a black civil rights activist who said black people aren't shot by police out of proportion - Dave did not believe him! He's also gay and jewish but somehow he is a fascist?
Sometimes, I don't understand the world anymore. I studied political science because politics always fascinated me but I've grown very tired of it because there are absolutely no standards anymore, both on the left and the right - someone disagrees with you? He must be an idiot, or a racist, or a fascist or an SJW. The problem is that democracy in the western world is currently threatened by both left-wing and right-wing extremists and both camps are getting larger. But none of it is taken seriously, because people are so quick to take sides and dismiss the arguments of the other side. Ok, personal rant over lol.
Glad you got that off your chest, I'm really sorry I insulted the good name of Jordan Paterson.
I thought he was the "enfirced monogamy" guy, but this sounds too stupid to be the same person.
Furthermore, I won't get my time wasted by whoever this Rubin fellow us, but thanks for the Spiegel recommend.
I suggest you read it too, since nowhere in it what you say is mentioned.
