Default Dr Jordan B Peterson

Anyone attending the lecture this evening? If so doors open at 630 but does anyone know what time he will actually take the stage?

Its a big venue and tickets are still available. It says Door 630 and I think he will go on an hour later. I work in Energy corridor and live in the Woods. Need to let my dogs out but I don't think if I left the Woods at 5p I would make it downtown by 630. Cant even get out of the Woods in 45 mins these days and then still have to make the drive down.

I hear ya. I already have plans this evening, but not sure I'd want to drive to downtown at that time anyways. Hopefully i'll get another chance to see him somewhere.

Sold out as far as I could see. He went in different direction last night that I felt was a nice treat though my wife wanted to hear the standard lecture. The British Academy of Something or other has chosen Dr. Peterson to write the preface for the 50th anniversary of the Gulag Archipelago. So he decided to bounce his ideas for the forward off the crowd. I thought it was very impressive.

The whole premise of it was that we know when the right has gone too far ie Nazism/Fascism in mid 20th century Europe. We later had the Nuremburg trials and a clear line in the sand was drawn on what is too far right. Now as far as going too far left we have seen Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc.... kill far more people than the Nazis ever did but there has never been a political reckoning for how far the left went. Eventually these systems collapsed and reformed but the system of Marxism was never held accountable. Kind of a we are doomed to repeat it as so many leftists now in the post modern era are embracing Marxism again. He mentions at this point how the President of the EU placed a wreath on the grave of Marx this year as a token of this happening. His question was how many corpses have to be stacked in the name of this form of politics before we say it has gone too far for surely it has gone farther than Nazis ever did. He pushes that right here and now we ALL should be defining when the left has gone too far and that there is sufficient evidence to show when that line is crossed and that it has been crossed far too many times. Venezuela was mentioned as a modern example where children are starving to death but the govt will not allow the hospitals to show cause of death as starvation for the good of the govt. So it is illegal to starve to death their which is causing even more deaths as the problems aren't being resolved.

Interesting. For sure the far left hasn't been held accountable.

The thing I like most about Jordan Peterson is that his main interest is in figuring things out. Not pushing what is right based on his own definitions, but baring the most vulnerable part of an argument that so that it can be scrutinized and analyzed for whether it is truth. Best of all he usually does this on the fly. You get to see his mind work, to question itself, and to identify not just the basis for the idea but the ancient and psychological building blocks that enabled the idea to exist in the first place.

Seemed like a interesting discussion. Intellectual discussions are definitely underrated by Americans for some reason.

Ive seen him come back to a thought he had during a lecture he made at least an hour before and revisit it as his reasoning on a new topic required corrections to be made on the reasoning of another. I often find myself doing the same as you mentioned of him; verbally forming my statements out loud in front of whomever I am speaking with to make sure I am using the most rational and logical language possible.

An article written about the evening. I haven't had time to read through all of it but it appears to quote a lot of what was said that night.
