Let's just unpack this.

You're asking if someone can figure out how to... count? And that this is on par with the Riemann Hypothesis or some such thing?

HOL UP


Ok, so, I actually had no strong feelings about Jordan Peterson before this as apparently I'd only been exposed to his non-controversial musings, some of which I agreed and some of which I mildly did not, but after watching about a 1/3 of this Joe Rogan interview, holy ****.

Peterson is a confirmed crazy person.

Like, what's the reaction supposed to be to hearing him rant about the postmodern social justice warrior doctrine and it's assault on enlightened western values and culture? Nod earnestly?

Re: P 7.0 Youtubez masterclass

Peterson is apparently the missing link. I'd been wondering where the derplords were getting this from:

Quote:
In November, the National Post published an op-ed by Peterson in which he elaborated on his opposition to the bill and explained why he publicly made a stand against it. He stated:

I will never use words I hate, like the trendy and artificially constructed words "zhe" and "zher." These words are at the vanguard of a post-modern, radical leftist ideology that I detest, and which is, in my professional opinion, frighteningly similar to the Marxist doctrines that killed at least 100 million people in the 20th century.

I have been studying authoritarianism on the right and the left for 35 years. I wrote a book, Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief, on the topic, which explores how ideologies hijack language and belief. As a result of my studies, I have come to believe that Marxism is a murderous ideology. I believe its practitioners in modern universities should be ashamed of themselves for continuing to promote such vicious, untenable and anti-human ideas, and for indoctrinating their students with these beliefs. I am therefore not going to mouth Marxist words. That would make me a puppet of the radical left, and that is not going to happen. Period.[20]

Re: P 7.0 Youtubez masterclass

The Swedish Institute of foreign affairs has a twitter page @Sweden for promoting our image abroad, this is an institute run by leftist activists which is obvious when reading their twitter feed.

Their propaganda of Sweden has finally reached out on the international scene, but the message that came out is almost paradoxically the actual truth. They have shown the whole world that branches of the Swedish government are run by leftist activists who'll censor opinions they don't like.Talk about unintentionally showing Swedens true face.

Re: P 7.0 Youtubez masterclass

The Jerusalem post has an article out already. I hope this gets more international press, the most awesome thing would be if Trump mentioned it in a speech.

Swedish MSM is predictably quiet about the whole incident, heck they probably use the same list themselves.

That press freedom index with Sweden scoring among the best countries is a joke, ranking us above the USA is just incredible.

Re: P 7.0 Youtubez masterclass

Let me get this straight. Sweden had a twitter account where they blocked a bunch of accounts. And some of these accounts probably shouldn't have been blocked.

Here in the US, we have a president who rails against the media and who wants to limit freedom of the press. At the same time, his administration gives press passes to conspiracy theorists.

You got it good, man.

Right. People with white nationalist tendencies are going to be upset by minorities agitating for political power. That doesn't mean that agitating for political power is wrong.

I guess you'd have to define "militant authoritarian SJWs" because I don't see them as a major problem at all. Nor do they have any real power, whereas the Alt Right has been emboldened by the Trump administration, who have even hired alt-right people like Steve Bannon.

What polices are you referring to? I think I will disagree with some and agree with others. I do think that the issues facing the black community today are from a direct result of the Americas very racist past.

I think the voting ID laws should be loosened but dont see it as a race issue but im in the UK so im not that familiar with them.
Voter ID laws, responses to immigration and de facto police policies are what I was thinking of. As for voter ID, we've had at east two federal courts rule that Voter ID laws were deliberately targeting minorities. But even if it weren't deliberate, Voter ID laws affect minorities disproportionately.

did anyone else notice victor call me a liar and FOS when i claimed there was psychology research on political beliefs? then i provided him with online surveys. then deuces came in to blast me about not realizing its being done on both sides of the political spectrum. then i reminded deuces that he actually snipped me explaining this out of my quote before blasting me. and now the grand finale is victor is pitching me studies he called me a liar for saying existed while failing to acknowledge his spazz out was embarrassingly stupid. yes victor, the research exists and it produces unflattering results for extremes on both ends of the spectrum.... which i already posted and you responded by calling me a liar lol

so we have professors in the field of psychology jordan peterson, gad saad, and jonathan haidt all applying their expertise to describe a massive wave of lunacy on the left in great detail and then we have flywf stop by to remind us that he prefers to listen to openly biased news entertainers or "educated medi class" (lol) and like-minded SJW's. powerful stuff
Lol dude i dont have a single post itt other than this

I wouldn't say agitating for political power is wrong until the moment you start infringing on peoples right to free speech or segregating people based on their skin color. Which by the way only helps vindicate the alt right and help them recruit.

And its not just white nationalism that is on the rise but also moderate conservatives and centrists. There has been a spike in conservative student groups in the US and the UK so in a way their tactics have back fired. And right now moderate conservatives sound alot more reasonable than many of the militant SJWs do and that should worry the **** out of anyone who cares about the left.

The free speech issue on university campuses is a lot more widespread it seems and even if they have no legal obligation to do so I think they have a moral obligation to uphold the right that has made places like the US and the UK such great places to live relative to places that do not have free speech.

And I disagree when you say they have no power, when you have a a strangle hold on university's and you are shaping the minds of young people that will run the world in the next few decades you have alot of power.

Im not sure what you mean by the alt right, if you mean the race separatists then no I dont think they have alot of power.

I agree that those polices affect the poorest in society and as a result affect minorities disproportionately. I also think that the US should have universal health care and try to bridge the gap between the richest and poorest regardless of color. I despise identity politics so have little time for the alt right or SJWs.

Re: P 7.0 Youtubez masterclass

Yep. Superslug is 100% spot on.

What leftists don't realize is more often than not social engineering (or whatever they call it) winds up having the opposite effect. The more you help someone the more you hurt them in the long run. People are poor, give them welfare, they stay poor. Subsidize single mothers? You get more single mothers. Coddle your children and do everything for them? They turn out to be weak.

It is no surprise that we live in a world of "no bullying" and overprotective parents yet the suicide rate is skyrocketing. Gee, i wonder why? God forbid a kid gets in a fight or deals with stress, it might make them resiliant and stress tolerant and strong people. We don't want that, do we?

The whole world is crazy. We just raised a generation of idiots and we are stuck with them for 40 years.

This whole post is bad, but the part about suicide is particularly uninformed.

https://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/22/h...high.html?_r=0

The data show that suicides have risen among all ages--so Wil's claim that an increased suicide rate comes from "protective parents" is obviously wrong. In fact, suicides for the 15-24 male age group increased about as much as the 65-74 age group. Meanwhile, it is middle age men have seen among the largest increase in suicides.

To be clear, a large increase in suicides has been noted in a cohort that tends to be more conservative than average. (I'm not making a causal claim here, just pointing out that Wil's claim is complete garbage based on his feelings and no data whatsoever.)

And, yes, the suicide rate among girls 10-14 did triple from 1999 to 2014, but the rate is so low that it can't be attributed to some widespread trend in parenting. (A rise from 50 suicides to 150.)

Nope. I'm not alt-right either, I'm a humble ancap. The alt-right seems to be elite at producing memes and youtubez, much better than anything I've seen from the left.

case in point - crappy left wing meme I saw yesterday. Shameful.

Re: P 7.0 Youtubez masterclass

I've gone down the rabbit hole of youtoobs past few months. It's definitely dominated by skeptics, anti-feminists and anti-SJWs. Not sure what it is about it that form of social media that separates it in this regard so much from other forms like facebook and twitter.
