i have watched j peterson from a distance, for years, (i don't agree with all his views but i respect that he asks some important questions, and i respect folks are allowed to have their own 'opinions'. we don't have to agree)
and i have only watched the attached video regarding his resignation, so need to read a bit more to have an educated opinion on his resignation

i want to add....

while i was working as a professor at a university many years ago, there was a man in our department that was very skilled, really good in his area, and was an exceptional instructor in his area as well. the students adored him, and the standards in his classes were very high.
he was let go.
and replaced with a less skilled person, who happened to be a woman, to satisfy affirmative action for minorities.

the quality of the program suffered, and the enrollment dropped.
and on a personal note,.... this man ended up driving a school bus to support his family (nothing wrong with that..if it's what you want to do, but he didn't) having a breakdown, and all the talent and gifts he brought to the department were lost.

i believe in hiring the best, most qualified person for the job.
but with that, i support very much, providing equal opportunities for those requiring education or training to become the best, most qualified person for the job. there has been an imbalance for a very long time which needs to be addressed. i think this can be done through providing education, training, apprenticeships, with one's goal being solution. fck the pendulum.

And all the more now that real inequality - economic inequality - is soaring just as being black, gay or female doesn't really hold you back anymore.

I want to know if your mum was a crackhead and single parent. What the tremendous odds you've overcome are. Your high school was responsible for how many stabbings? These are the facts that count.

To be honest Lee, I'm not a huge fan of Jordan Peterson. It's not that he says anything wrong, it's because he states the bloody obvious. The pendulum will swing.

At UNI esp in Toronto in 'free thought and mungbeans'.......JP states the obvious as Gretta and Al glorious Gore take us for mugs.

There is no credible data (DATA) saying otherwise. There's more polar bears, more C02 than the tree can take a stick at.

David Attenborough was an absolute farce. It's not only sad.........it's pathetic

He's still alive and just because you have no respect for a man that has dedicated his life to wildlife and our planet as his many documentaries watched World wide show, doesn't mean the rest of humanity hasn't.

Come to think of it you haven't got much respect for anything or anybody judging by some of the comments you post.sigh

Yes, of course you're right Tiger. I'm not allowed an opinion which ironically JP is an advocate for.
"Come to think of it you haven't got much respect".......are you sure you want to go down this path? Perhaps you want a soothing mandarine nectrine smoothie?

What ever floats your boat but please don't ask me what narrative is right nor wrong. I gave my opinion regarding JP. He states the obviouse.

I have huge respect for free thinkers......perhaps you lack respect for contrary thoughts.

Actually Tiger, I'm going to play your game. David @TTEN needs to slow down on his carbon credits. If not for his sake then his cameraman's sake and the whole BBC caboodle.

I appreciate your concern Tiger but shouldn't you be questioning David from DAVOS.

Gets obvious yet boring after awhile. Do you pay George Monbiot's' wages from the Guardian? Do you drink champagne from your lofty towers?

Actually Hex I don't play games.Rather childish don't you think.dunno

I made my comment with regards your statement "was" in commenting on Sir David Attenborough which I found rather insulting as he is still alive.

How you chose to interpret that is for you to decide, which you obviously have ,by going down your normal route of posting innuendos.yawn

Some years ago I was downtown Portland on some business. The entire city was jam-packed. Pioneer Square (our Kings Cross) was densely packed. The hullabaloo? The Dali Lama was a guest. I wedged in to catch the whole thing. As he approached the podium, the crowd was in hysterics. Some people were screaming and crying. They settled down a little, and the DL stepped to the microphone. Grinning broadly, he said one word-“Peace”. The crowd went wild. Nay, prostate. More screaming, crying, blubbering. They settled down. Yet grinning, the DL approached again. This time he said, “Love”. If it were possible to be even more enthusiastic, the crowd screamed, applauded, cried, jumped up and down…They finally settled down. Once more, the DL approached the microphone and said, “Tranquility”. My, my, my did the crowd ever react. Even more screaming and crying, uproarious applauding. A middle- aged man was down on the ground, flipping all over the square. Break-dancing, I guess. What an unbelievable demonstration of crowd hysteria. For three words the Beatles and hippies said years ago in Haight-Ashbury.

(I’m against iconizing people, no matter who they are…)
