Jordan Peterson Alt-Right?

30 posts in this topic

Jordan Peterson really confuses me. I generally have a good sense of what people believe and what motivates them but JP is like a riddle to me. He’s someone who’s spent most of his life diving into dense psychological topics and seemingly investigating his own psyche, yet he falls prey to such basic stuff and seems completely inconsistent in his behaviours / ideas. 
 

Hes a weird one.

He’s just afraid, scared of the truth. He’s one of those that isn’t willing to admit God as all as ❤️, he wants God to be “Good” and not “Bad”. That creates a ‘big’ shadow in him, his belief in free individuals separate from God doesn’t help either. He’s basically saying that life is suffering and there’s no escaping that, which is what keeps him away from love.

It's not that JP chose all this, like many others he fell into a role because some video blew up years ago and now he's playing a part. It's all very convenient to his survival too since he's carved out a nice career from it being as public speaker.

It's not like anybody who gets famous or falls into a category of left wing justice warrior or a fact spewing scientist takes the time to realize meta-analyze their own position, they do what feels socially acceptable (from their point of view) and sacrifice layers and layers of their own authenticity.

This is the whole process that brings us to the "us vs them" thing. It takes a highly conscious person to truly not care what other people think and be willing to walk their own path, even if it means doing so in silence.

@Leo Gura He's arguing with her, and it seems like he's offering a perspective to help these fearful people deal with resentment. It really doesn't seem that bad.

Can you post the timestamps? 

I can't watch the whole thing it feels like he's just repeating his bitter perspective again.

I agree with you. I've been contemplating quite a lot on the Peterson enigma. It's a bit funny to make of a psychologist at perfect subject for psychoanalysis. ^_^

Jordan's mind seems to be excessively judgmental to me. And judgment is the shadow's favorite fertilizer. Whatever time he's spent diving into psychological topics and investigation his psyche, it is certain that he has not excelled at doing shadow work.

Whenever I read or listen to him, I am always amazed at how he is unable to step out in good faith out of his perspective. He's intelligent, but his mind rejects contradictory elements like they are bind spots for it. Which is exactly what a shadow does.

To me, it explains the inconsistent behavior and ideas. Jordan is vested on a subconscious level towards whatever he values. He defends it at all cost.

I'm convinced that meditation would do an awful lot for him. I am very frustrated that his pal Dave Rubin had Tolle himself on his show, but yet, Jordan seems to still be impermeable to letting some stillness fracture his massive ego-jail.

@SeanD That's on the surface what you will perceive, look at the sub-communication.

He starts the discussion at 36 min. talking about being tricked by the left into playing the game of identity politics and warns about developing the emotion of resentment which is very dark and leads to hell.  His first explanation goes from 36min - 42min.
