Thanks for dropping in, Jack! Where in the hell have you been?

So you’re saying he’s the King of the Incels?

No, that’s Lindsey Graham.

THE INTELLECTUAL WE DESERVE
Quote:
If you want to appear very profound and convince people to take you seriously, but have nothing of value to say, there is a tried and tested method. First, take some extremely obvious platitude or truism. Make sure it actually does contain some insight, though it can be rather vague. Something like “if you’re too conciliatory, you will sometimes get taken advantage of” or “many moral values are similar across human societies.” Then, try to restate your platitude using as many words as possible, as unintelligibly as possible, while never repeating yourself exactly. Use highly technical language drawn from many different academic disciplines, so that no one person will ever have adequate training to fully evaluate your work. Construct elaborate theories with many parts. Draw diagrams. Use italics liberally to indicate that you are using words in a highly specific and idiosyncratic sense. Never say anything too specific, and if you do, qualify it heavily so that you can always insist you meant the opposite. Then evangelize: speak as confidently as possible, as if you are sharing God’s own truth. Accept no criticisms: insist that any skeptic has either misinterpreted you or has actually already admitted that you are correct. Talk as much as possible and listen as little as possible. Follow these steps, and your success will be assured. (It does help if you are male and Caucasian.)

Jordan Peterson appears very profound and has convinced many people to take him seriously. Yet he has almost nothing of value to say. This should be obvious to anyone who has spent even a few moments critically examining his writings and speeches, which are comically befuddled, pompous, and ignorant. They are half nonsense, half banality. In a reasonable world, Peterson would be seen as the kind of tedious crackpot that one hopes not to get seated next to on a train.

But we do not live in a reasonable world.

One can make a great living selling mediocre men pseudo-intellectual platitudes that make them feel better about their own mediocrity.

I thought denigrating large groups of people was a Republican thing to do.

His last book was literally a self-help book so I’m not sure how he’s OK with mediocrity

His big revelation is make your bed. I get how that's a break through to the [expletive] morons that support Trump but outside of them no one takes him seriously.

How much longer can Fox and TrumpGOP media be able to use the left/liberals as a foil? when is the last time liberals had any govt control. (dems aren't libs by any means) you would think people would notice that its the right that has been at power.

...btw My guess on how long the liberals can play the foil on Fox is... forever. Dumb people in uncertain times will resort to mythology. and uncertain times are certain to continue.
