I'm not super familiar with him, but the couple videos I've seen have impressed me. He's relentlessly logical, and he cuts through bullshit with a scalpel.

I been been following Jordan Peterson's lectures for years and never knew that.

He's just recovering from several years of depression. Looks pretty anemic sometimes.

Nonetheless for it he always has a good spiel.

Gee, Sean, I always assumed Jordan Peterson was too right-wing for your interests.

But yeah, I like Peterson, too. He has some good messages.
He debates people with real interaction, not a propaganda approach.
He uses data and facts.
Seems overall to look at things from a balanced perspective.
He acknowledges that opposing viewpoints are legit, and posits that the systems work better in dynamic opposition (a balancing of power/ action).
He maintains his composure and articulates himself without being aggressive.


I agree with some conservative viewpoints. I agree with some liberal viewpoints. Not so much further out from the middle.

My oldest friend in Olympia, age and longest standing, is very conservative. We agree on a fair bit in the big picture and in ideals, though we differ in our view of the world.
