Jordan Peterson Rolls Over

I told you, repeatedly, that Jordan Peterson was steeped in the occult and was a servant of evil. I warned you, repeatedly, that he never was, and he never will be, on the side of the Good, the Beautiful, and the True. I pointed out, repeatedly, that excessively charitable Christians have been saying that Peterson has “been moving toward Christianity” for four years without ever getting anywhere that even remotely resembles the genuine faith.

A recent podcast discussion between Dr. Jordan Peterson and ‘married’ homosexual Dave Rubin titled “Gay Parenting: Promise and Pitfalls” further demonstrates that homosexuality and homosexual marriage have conquered nearly all conservative elites.  

Just seven years and one week since the U.S. released its decision in the Obergefell same-sex ‘marriage’ case, the impulse among high profile conservative thinkers and opinionators is not to preserve the immutable definition of marriage, but to justify mutilating it to include two men or two women as “married.”  

“This is a political issue. We’re trying to sketch out a pathway … I mean, our culture appears to have decided that gay marriage has become part of the structure of marriage itself,” Peterson stated at the outset of the hour and a half discussion, waving an enormous white flag of surrender. .. Peterson casually tossed the definition of marriage into the dustbin of history, claiming that “Marriage is the union of two people,” not the union of a man and a woman. He nonchalantly trashed civilization’s understanding of nature and biology and the understanding of every society and religion around the world for thousands of years.   

Jordan Peterson failed as both a gatekeeper and an intellectual before his descent into depression and drug addiction. His second coming is as a neoconservative figurehead, featuring a shiny new leash held by Ben Shapiro’s master. Now he will bark and perform conservative tricks on command. This recent discussion is a useful reminder of two things: a) the total uselessness of “high profile conservative thinkers” and b) the fact that the devil cares nothing for those who serve him and is particularly cruel to those who fail him.

Those who fall from the devil’s high horse seldom fare well.

Jordan Peterson Bravely Runs Away

Better hide the meth, Jordan Peterson is feeling the heat again and bravely decided to give up his Twitter habit:

Initially, Peterson stuck to his guns, firing back at ‘panderers’, and insisting that the decision to feature a plus-size woman on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit was ‘a conscious and cynical manipulation by the oh-so virtuous politically correct’.

In another tweet he added: ‘It’s a conscious progressive attempt to manipulate and retool the notion of beauty, reliant on the idiot philosophy that such preferences are learned and properly changed by those who know better.’

However, after he continued to be bombarded with what he described as a ‘vicious flood of insults’, Peterson called it quits, announcing that he was ‘departing’ Twitter, while branding the social media platform ‘intrinsically and dangerously insane’.

‘The endless flood of vicious insult is really not something that can be experienced anywhere else,’ he wrote. ‘I like to follow the people I know but I think the incentive structure of the platform makes it intrinsically and dangerously insane.’

He continued: ‘So I told my staff to change my password, to keep me from temptation, and am departing once again.

‘If I have something to say I’ll write an article or make a video. If the issue is not important enough to justify that then perhaps it would be best to just let it go.’

If you ever want to know how a Gamma is going to handle something, just ask yourself What Would Jordan Do?

Not that getting off Facebook and Twitter and Linked-In is a bad idea in and of itself, but the only thing worse than rage-quitting is fear-quitting.

UPDATE: Social media isn’t for everyone, particularly not for those desperate for approval.

JORDAN PETERSON: The endless flood of vicious insult is really not something that can be experienced anywhere else. I like to follow the people I know but I think the incentive structure of the platform makes it intrinsically and dangerously insane.

MIKE CERNOVICH: Twitter is spectacular. I’ve made new friends, witnessed and participated in history, and learned as much as one would walking library stacks. You’re desperate for approval, this makes it impossible for you to not internalize (or at least ignore) the hate any public figure gets.

Of Pearls and Swine

If you ever wonder why I simply ignore people who ask me to provide sources or support my statements, this exchange on Gab between a Peterson fan and a Jordanetics reader pretty much summarizes why.

All the peterson hate is such obvious jealous. I’ve never heard anyone attack his message, because you all agree with it

You mean messages like this?

yeah exactly, you have to resort to criticizing parody of him because you can’t actually articulate an argument against anything he says.

Read this and then say that again. But of course you won’t because you are taken in by his moronic baffle garble: (Link to Jordanetics)

tell me what he’s wrong about and tell me why he’s wrong.

yep, just go ahead and not read the thing that you literally asked for. Because you don’t really want to think, you just want to slaver over the alter of his baffle garble. Just go clean your room bucko!

There is absolutely no point in attempting to engage intellectually with those who are limited to the rhetorical. Their demand for sources and evidence is nothing more than a rhetorical ploy; if provided, they will not hesitate to ignore them.

Chris Langan Sees Through Jordan Peterson

The Smartest Man in the World has no trouble seeing right through the intellectual fraudulence of Jordan Peterson:

Jordan Peterson is an interesting case. He’s uncommonly bright and well-spoken, has a pretty reliable BS detector, and is pointed in the right direction on many issues. However, even though he vocally opposes some aspects of the Frankfurtian / progressive PC indoctrination agenda of Academia, Inc., he’s an academic to the core when all is said and done.

For our purposes, this means two things:

(1) He lacks a proper philosophical foundation, resting his worldview on “common sense”, conservative platitudes, and gut instinct (including an obvious sense of moral entitlement). This is someone who would not find it easy to oppose anything that he thinks came out of the hard sciences, even when their academic gatekeepers deceptively substitute self-promotion, political prejudice, and model-dependent philosophical extrapolations for actual science.

(2) He embraces certain false assumptions like the alleged irresolvability of certain religious questions, the alleged existence of a true meritocracy, and the alleged ability of women to choose the best mates on the basis of where males reside in the power structure and how well they navigate the power hierarchy. He seems to associate the ability to get ahead under the status quo with “intelligence” when in fact, the correlation of success with intelligence persists only up to a rather unimpressive level of cognitive ability, and possibly with physical and moral excellence as well (ditto at best). In reality, economic and political success is unavoidably affected by numerous confounding factors.

In reality, the ability to navigate and rise in a corrupt power structure is less a function of real merit than of its exact opposite.

Obviously I see this as a rather rosy-hued perspective on Peterson’s esoteric gatekeeping, but it’s interesting to witness how a genuinely intelligent individual has no problem seeing through Peterson’s bafflegarble.

Conversating About Conversations

This may be the one and only time I have ever felt any actual pity for Ben Shapiro. These two somehow manage to make the mutual navel-gazing of the New Atheists look less hideously embarrassing in retrospect. And what sort of twisted, self-abusive masochist hears about a conversation between these two posturing charlatans and decides, “hey, now THAT is something I don’t want to miss!”

And yes, this is what Hell looks like. For both of them.


It wasn’t the apple cider

Has anyone actually seen Jordan Peterson and Hunter Biden in the same room at the same time?

President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden admitted during a CBS News interview that he smoked Parmesan cheese after mistaking it for crack cocaine during the height of his addiction.

Reporter Tracy Smith said, “You wake up some mornings — I shouldn’t even say some mornings because you slept 15 minutes at a time and be looking for crack and to smoke whatever was there?”

Biden said: “I spent more time on my hands and knees picking through rugs smoking anything that resembled crack cocaine. I probably smoked more Parmesan cheese than anyone – than anyone you know, Tracy.”

Smith said, “Because there would will be crumbs mixed in?”

Biden said, “Yeah, I went one time for 13 days without sleeping, and smoking crack, and drinking vodka exclusively throughout that entire time.

I wouldn’t have thought anyone could exceed the comedy potential of the Obama administration. But the fake Biden administration is clearing it effortlessly. 


Remember, you actually thought he was smart

Forget the fact that Jordan Peterson doesn’t listen to me. I certainly wouldn’t expect him to do so. But you would think that The Most Important Thinker in Human History would at least be capable of learning from experience. 

And you would be wrong:

Was I unforgivably careless in the trust I chose to show to the Times? Perhaps. I believed (as did my editors and publishers at Penguin Random House) that my story was invariably going to be told and that it was therefore appropriate to provide the details in as truthful and complete a manner possible to the most reliable and credible possible source. We all took the offer from the Sunday Times at face value and held that paper in high regard. Hence, our decision — which was considered over months.

Now, the situation is complicated by the fact that I have a new book coming out March 2 (described here). This means that the decision to participate in the Sunday Times interview was also motivated by a desire not so much to publicize the book as to clear the stage so that the book might be made the central topic of any other interviews I might give around its launch time (instead of issues such as my health). I certainly feel an obligation to work with and for my publishers so that the book’s existence is publicized, and there’s obviously an element of self-interest in that, as well. I want to act such that the book has the highest possible chance of success. I hope that people will find it as useful as they appear to have found my previous book, 12 Rules for Life.

So, what would a wise man do?

Learn my lesson, and avoid the press at all cost? But I don’t know how to distinguish that from turning my tail and hiding, and I think that would be worse for me, even in my currently compromised state, than continuing to engage as I have.

Only choose to make myself available to outlets that will produce positive coverage? First, how do I know which outlets are trustworthy. I could only talk to people with whom I have become friendly, such as David Rubin and Joe Rogan. But I don’t think it’s right to stay inside what risks becoming a mere echo chamber.

Was it a mistake for me to conduct the now-infamous Channel Four interview with Cathy Newman? Or the almost equally-viewed GQ interview with Helen Lewis? Both of those were markedly hostile. Were they failures, or successes? I don’t think it is unreasonable to note that they are markedly of our time, and perhaps indicate something important–whatever that might be–about our time. Both have garnered some 25 million views. There’s something of broad public interest about the tension that characterizes both conversations….

GQ, motivated by the success (?) of the Helen Lewis interview, plans to produce a profile on me in the near future. I have been asked to make myself available for an interview. Should I do it? I haven’t decided. If it goes badly, will I only have myself to blame? Should I therefore avoid it?

I hope to be judicious in my decisions about when and where to speak. I hope that I can stick to the truth when I do so, and believe that there is no better defense (and, indeed, no better offense) than that? Do I trust myself to tell the truth? Will my ego invariably get in the way? Has that already happened?

What part of NEVER TALK TO THE MEDIA is hard to understand? The amusing thing is that Jordy doesn’t realize that both Cathy Newman and Helen Lewis were giving him the Girlfriend Experience because it was their job to help build him up. Now he’s getting the sort of treatment that the media gives ordinary people.

He’d better learn to shut up and stop dancing for the media before he gets the genuinely adversarial treatment of the sort that Milo and I would receive if we were ever dumb enough to talk to the media, because I very much doubt his fragile psyche would survive it. 

PS – I’ll tell you right now that I am going to talk to certain specific media organizations in three months concerning Project Asteroid. Why? Because it’s Project Fucking Asteroid, it’s much bigger than me, and no one is going to care at all about me or anything I have ever said or done.


Schizo Peterson

The news that Jordan Peterson is suicidal and schizo will not exactly surprise anyone who read Jordanetics. Or, for that matter, Maps of Meaning.

Jordan Peterson in a new interview described his spiral into drug addition and suicidal thoughts, before being diagnosed with schizophrenia — and then undergoing a controversial Russian treatment that him placed into an induced coma for eight days.

The controversial Canadian psychology professor, who has spent much of his career railing against political correctness, spoke to the Sunday Times, along with his podcast host daughter, Mikhaila Peterson, about his downward spiral.

“I don’t remember anything. From Dec. 16 of 2019 to Feb. 5, 2020,” the self-help author said of period he was sent Russia for treatment. “I don’t remember anything at all,” Peterson told the British newspaper. 

Peterson gained international fame for blasting academic “safe spaces” and feminism, as well as his refusal to use transgender people’s preferred pronouns.

He penned the international bestseller, “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos,” in 2018, but was struggling with an addiction to benzodiazepines prescribed to him after a violent reaction to a strict meat and greens diet.

To be honest, I don’t believe he’s schizophrenic. I think it’s considerably more likely that he’s demon-possessed and haunted by his historical relations with family members.


A new home beckons

There is a lot of uncertainty these days, but at least we now know one thing in the wake of the recent votes. Jordan Peterson will be moving to Oregon.

BREAKING: Oregon becomes first U.S. state to decriminalize possession of all drugs, including cocaine, heroin, and meth, for personal use.

But not, of course, for the meth. DEFINITELY not for the meth. I can’t help but wondering, though, if Oregon might be making a serious play for the movie business that is presently fleeing the Hellmouth. 

Investor: So, where are you thinking of filming?

Producer: We’ve looked at a few locations – SNIFF – Oregon looks really good, you know!


The serpent lurks

The conservative establishment’s favorite lunatic drug addict is at it again and now he’s explaining the existence of evil:

Why the Serpent Lurks Eternally in the Garden

The following is from a draft of 

Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life

The presence of the serpent in the garden also signifies something even deeper: the impossibility of the order suitable for human beings existing without some admixture of chaos. There is simply no way, even for God himself, to wall off some isolated portion of the greater surrounding reality and make everything permanently predictable and safe within it. Some of the reality that has been so carefully excluded will always sneak back in. A snake will therefore inevitably appear, no matter what care is taken. Even the most assiduous of modern parents will not be able to protect their children from internet porn, drugs, or alcohol, even if they lock them in the basement (in which case they only end up exposing them to the snakes they harbor within themselves). We might have learned such things by watching the great, degenerate totalitarian utopias of the 20th century. Leaders and citizens alike attempted, with ever-increasing desperation, to force everything that existed into a defined, comprehensible and too-perfect order. That merely ensured that chaos burst forth without reserve into their souls, and then into their societies.   

You see, you have to give into the chaos if you want not-too-perfect order. That’s why smoking meth is the best way to avoid becoming a drug addict. No one has thought this thought before while not-smoking not-meth.

Take your pills!
