    😂I love hearing this asswad's bullshit commentary on and on about much of nothing to do with JBP or the case being made or the true facts behind it -- just his politically motivated opinion or rather garbage feces spewing from his trap without self reflection or even reasonable intellect. Just more PC culture collective regurgitation of talking points. Unconscionable babbling...😌👋🏻time to be dismissive of this twit.

    This interview was the most infamous I have seen with Jordan Peterson because Peterson didn't react to so many lies, so many endoctrinated arguments by an old communist who cannot face the truth that all he believed in failed. Every arguments Peterson wins is closed by a "you're a fascist" typical leftist sentence. Jordan, why didn't you defend yourself?

    It must be hard to have your entire ideology obliterated as you leave fingernail trail marks in the gravel as you struggle against reason and shout and scream at the sky. The human mind and ego will do anything -- any kind of mental gymnastics -- to convince itself that its on solid ground.
    It takes a psychologist to dissect that mentality and put it right. *_This man needs a session with Dr. Peterson, not an interview._*

    Painful. This man Cathy Newman-ed himself. Peterson stands up to Dodd's mistaken assumptions and Dodd changes the subject because he is left speechless. Dodd asks why Peterson doesn't address larger problems like drugs (instead of concentrating on the "harm" done by the SJWs) Peterson responds that he has done an entire thesis on alcoholism and addresses the issue of drug and alcohol abuse and antisocial behaviour in his clinical work. It is also exactly what the title of chapter 1 refers to in the book of twelve rules. Evidently Dodd didn't get that far in the book or didn't understand that "clean your room" is a metaphor. Seems kind of odd for someone who used to teach literature to university students. I enjoyed hearing Dodd trying to use obscure literary anecdotes to press points that he thinks Peterson might not understand and Peterson retorts with eloquent erudition. I don't normally like sensationalism but Peterson utterly destroyed this sad, condescending, irrelevant ideologist.

    Someone in JP Reddit said this, but the reason JP is saying Order and Chaos is obviously because of the Bible and such.
    Better worded oppositions would be Order and Creation. Too much Order ends in tyranny and too much Creation leads in chaos.
    But is this really that important?

    So Philip Doddfeels Jordan Peterson should focus on an important social issue. So domestic violence gets brought up. Jordan Peterson says it’s largely because of alcohol abuse I studied it for years. There you go Jordan Peterson has a clear causation for the problem. Philip Dodd planes it on capitalism it would seem. I think your find Mr Dodd alcoholism is present even in most countries where it is available. Yes, even the Russians have had big issues with alcohol abuse. So Philipt then wanted to talk about how feminism has dealt with domestic violence. Well feminism should’ve campaigned heavily to abolish alcohol it would seem to me as a better long-termstrategy over the decades. However, I don’t remember when I did sociology alcohol being part of a post modern,Marxist male patriarchal theoretical approach. ItFocuses on some lofty theory about power relations and doesn’t focus on something that is blatantly obvious to be seen and tangible such as damaging effects of alcohol. We managed to reduce massively the amount of smoking people did. so we could’ve done the same with alcohol abuse as well. No, Philip, stop wasting your time on issues like passé Marxist theory. Instead, focus on getting alcohol band would help to reduce incidence of domestic violence by men.

    This is the leftist, intellectual arrogance, that they know best for others, when they don't have a clue about their own motivations. Clearly we have to make social level choices, but unless our prime emphasis is on our self awareness, any of those social level choices will be irresponsible ego projections. The outcomes from this approach are all around us today. Dodd sounds like a smug, condescending, know all, to me. The very worst of the intelligentsia.

    I was taught by Jesuits. It is not true that the Church is more important than the individual. I was taught that the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY is ONE'S OWN conscience. The Jesuits realised, of course, that that means that you might have to defy the Church and the Pope at times. God speaks directly to your soul. I know that sounds Protestant but I was taught, I stress by Jesuits, that one's own conscience is the ultimate authority.

    Im quite a Peterson fan but If I could ask Jordan a question it would be how he squares the Christian belief of Original Sin and how incredibly non individualistic it is with his position of personal responsibility rather than group responsibility. To promote the belief that you are born guilty of the crimes and sins of another is essentially the tactic that the regressive left uses to try and create the premise of White Guilt and that only through the church can one redeem themselves from something that the person was not even involved with.

      +mephisto279 Technically it does become open to interpretation, but not a "great deal" of interpretation. There are only a couple of viable interpretations that align with the form and imagery of the text without unduly stretching your imagination or requiring special assumptions. Try if you can, to interpret the text of Original sin/banishment from paradise... in a cogent way, and see what you can come up with.

    • mephisto279
      mephisto279 Month ago

      +Fun Bigly The problem with a metaphorical interpretation is that is is open to a great deal of well... interpretation. That aside this kind of reasoning doesnt really apply to those who view original sin in the literal sense which in my opinion is the way a religious person would take it. I could be mistaken but thats how I see it.

    • Fun Bigly
      Fun Bigly Month ago

      Original sin, taken metaphorically, was not meant as a wrongdoing/stain on one's conscience. It was meant to convey the idea of an inheritable trait in humankind from the fact of engaging with the "tree of knowledge of good and evil". Basically, human beings evolved a conscience, a moral compass which made their blissful existence in "paradise" untenable. The meaning of "sin" in later christian theology is that of a metaphysically punishable offence, which is how most people have since understood it.

    I used to have this mate and he would talk over you, force his thoughts on you and all the while insist you were wrong whilst not engaging with you. He was like some Hyperactive Autistic, if such a thing exists. This Dodd chap seems to be of the same breed.
    And with regards to what he said about being from a mining village that suffered mass unemployment and addiction, my Great Granddad came from one of those mining villages, one of the main ones - His Dad died in a cave-in and then he had to leave school and start as a miner himself... This man, an ardent Labour supporter, now calls the closing of the pits the greatest mercy Thatcher ever performed, because it was hell down there. My Great-Granddad was grateful to be packed off to war to avoid those pits. Said it was a holiday in comparison.
    This Dodd chap waxing lyrical about the tragedy of it all can bog off, he ain't got an idea by comparison.

    What an absolutely disgraceful introduction!
    1. Claims his book is largely addressed to young men? Wrong. (At least, he didn't address them specifically, and the book demographics aren't even out there for him to say that).
    2. Claims he is more likely to be found in Social Media than print? Partially correct but misleading. (JP Has been cited nearly 11,000 times. Success on SM doesn't reduce that achievement).
    3. "Only his 2nd book in 20 years" - So what? What an awfully negative tone he's taking. I mean wtf does that even mean? Judge books as they are written, not by the quantity of books published!
    4. Claims he refused to use gender neutral pronouns? Wrong. (He argued the government shouldn't introduce compelled speech laws, he never actually refused to use anyone's preferred pronouns).
    5. He can't even state the book title correctly, it's not "12 Rules of Life".
    Well, I know how this next 40 minutes is going to go...

    Philip Dodd is so creepy and condescending. I think he tries to lecture a person who seems to be more intelligent and clam than him. he is not having a dialogue with jp because he did not listen. he is more interested in showing off himself in giving people examples. This reminds me of those marxist teachers who was forcing feeding us with ideology when I was a kid in China. his lecturing attitude only has enforced my feeling for dismissing this person as a serious intellectual. goodbye ,Dodd turd.

  • Thanks for Being a Useful Idiot

    First of all, to all the babies complaining about how annoying the host is, go back to your safe space and suck on your binkies. Regarding the complaint that the host has no right to criticize Peterson's choice of complaint, I ask you: If someone saw a towering inferno with people jumping for their lives out of windows, and the only comment that Peterson had was that the building had ugly carpeting, wouldn't you too point out that there are bigger problems to address? If you want to criticize what goes on in universities, how about the way that students in multiple disciplines, e.g. finance, management, marketing, business, law, etc. are groomed to continue our destructive and unsustainable version of capitalism which produces massive pollution, consumerism, dishonesty, corruption, selfishness, materialism, extreme nationalism, and tremendous debt? Nah, it's more urgent to complain about the two dozen purple-haired students who shout down Ben Shapiro.

    The Sparticus comment is ridiculous. Sparticus stood up, as an individual, against the state. The men standing up claiming "I am Sparticus" are professing their respect for the individual being sovereign above the collective. His point actually enforces the need for the individual to be free to speak and by doing so change collective control and power. "I am sparticus" is a confession of belief in the power of the ideal Individual.

    Dodd's open contempt for Peterson is pretty funny and ironic when juxtaposed against Peterson's almost deferntial manner towards him.,Even when its clear the respect is not reciprocated.This in contrast to his open hostility and contempt towards recent female interviewers despite asking many of the same type of things,one where he doodled on a piece of paper at the same time as answering questions.This chimes with his well documented misogyny. Whereas this accomplished male, western professor and fellow intellectual, (a top lobster) is a much more agreeable proposition.The veneer of intellectual snobbery and vanity just giving itself away a little.funny stuff.

    Dodd is precisely the type of ludicrously ideological Liberal academic that is creating Frankenstein 'snowflakes.' Dodd typically says "...forgive me {then he randomly goes to the wrong place} forgive me..."...it is almost as though Dodd is allowed to ask a question, but he already has the answer in his head. So, when Peterson answers, if this answer does not align perfectly with Dodd's preconceived notion, then Dodd interrupts and says "...forgive me..." By which Dodd's means, give me the answer I want. I don't think Dodd's understands a great deal of what is going on. Dyson and Dodd's deserve each other.

    Philip Dodd sounds like a neo-marxist. This encounter was a debate masquerading as an interview. Dodd showed little respect and if anything he conveyed thinly veiled hostility. Dodd started off the process by smearing Peterson by trying to subtly fix in the mind of the listener that Jodan Peterson is a fascist. Dodd seems to forget that fascism developed out of left wing idealogy socialism. Mussolini was a communist. Dodd was not interested in Jordan Peterson but only intersted in destroying him and his idea of individual responsibility as it runs counter to his own collectivist notions.

    Peterson is just an ordinary case of a modern neoliberal who superficially believes the weak and the 'stupid' must perish so that the strong and 'clever' will predominate. In his view there is no injust suppression currently or historically. It's just all natural, and everyone gets what they deserve. Blacks have low IQ so they are supposed to be poor, women are weak and their brains are not good in math so they are supposed to be in the kitchen. When anyone brings up these matters as well as inequality he just condescendingly sais he is so concerned, worried and soooo sorry this is happening, but "there's nothing we can do about it", it's just natural, you see. And then he always digs up some crappie social reaserch that proves his points. That's basically all he does. In summary, he is a pure social darwinist in action.

    Today it is not "I am Spartacus" but "I am BORG -- resistance is futile." The collective is abhorrent to the individual and free speech. It is also extremely ugly.
    The interview was good. We can see the leftist prejudices of the interviewer as an English major academic and the real problem is social justice concerning some coal town in the middle of nowhere. It is dated in this regard... or rather he is dated in this regard. Peterson was in good form and had a chance to defend his views. I've seen too often where Peterson is surrounded by leftist interviewers that pick away at him like carrion birds or harpies and he doesn't have time to give a full response. This interview was a relief and allowed Peterson to open up more of a detailed response. I like the "literary" part of the interview where Dostoevsky was discussed and the interviewer had a chance to display his vocabulary -- he probably doesn't get too many chances to throw or bandy some of his more favorite words around. And it did give the interview some class to hear people still talk in a refined or rarefied way. But to my thinking, it is sad the interview is such a secular leftist, despite his appreciation for literature and culture. And he does want to peg Peterson as a religious fanatic because that is the only category that makes sense to him in his progressive leftist thinking. Despite his literary vocabulary this shows the smallness of the interviewer's thinking -- to someone for whom reason is so eminent, he doesn't see the reason for Peterson's views. He hearkens back to his old line of thinking and his safe little leftist world goes on. Alas... Mister Spartacus Borg.

    Dodd's contempt oozes from every pore

    From my “admittedly” limited perspective, an all star battery has lined up to take swings at Peterson’s pitching. ( That’s a baseball metaphor for my British kin.) So far, only Sam Harris has cracked a gapper to the left-center Wall. Will anyone save him from being marooned on 2nd?

      Hockey metaphor needed as Peterson is Canadian. "Ice-hockey" for your British kin.

    It’s hilarious listening to Dodd trying so desperately to dismantle Jordan but failing miserably. And to end the conversation by saying - you sound like an evangelical Protestant Christian - really struck me as quite pathetic and tactless and an insult to all Evangelical Protestants.

      Dade Thomas I know. Like it is a pejorative to be a Christian now. Of course.

    Is it a British custom to flippantly say "Forgive me" when they actually mean to say "Fuck you Jordan Peterson"?

    Why did you end it on that note? You finally got to the important question of the philosophy driving Jordan and instead of spending the hour debating that you just tried to poke unsuccessful holes in his book. Philip probably read it once to Jordan's Dozens. Why won't anybody debate his philosophy? Classic cliff hanger.
