This is wonderful to hear for the most part.
Th book, Infidel, is an exceptionally great read.
This is a serious and frightening look at how leftists are controlling the means for people of generating an income who are exposing communism (and Islam) to the light of day.
This could be because the operators of these sites are leftists, but just as likely, crony-capitalists who receive income or certain guarantees, or even are under threat by large money globalists who give them market dominance but make it clear certain people cannot be allowed to use the system.
In this video, Dr. Peterson mentions another major piece of Soviet Samizdat. The Master and Margarita.
It’s worth mentioning that the entire book, as a movie, is available in about 10 parts of roughly an hour each on Youtube and is well worth the time to watch.
As an aside, South Park did a great homage to the Master and Margarita in one episode of the show, Season 13, Episode 3, Margaritaville. Its quite funny as a stand alone, but if you have seen The Master and Margarita, its even better.
There is a LOT of Jordan Peterson videos out there. In the Reader’s Comments alone for the past 48 hours or so, there is several hours of Dr. Peterson interviews. But this one at 36 minutes starts out so strong by an interviewer that has an unusually lucid view of what is going on makes it worth posting.
CAVEAT: I am only 3 minutes in as of posting, but its a great 3 minutes.
I left the following comment under Dr. Saad’s video as I feel this is a very important omission he, and Jordan Peterson make.
Gad, not forgetting for a moment that you are one of the great champions of enlightenment values in the world today, I respectfully disagree with you, and as a sidebar, Dr. Peterson, on one aspect of all this.
Both you and Dr. Peterson seem to believe that all these events, from cultural-appropriation and so many other events that are destroying Western civilization at this time are a function of stupidity and not malice. Dr. Peterson even said so in one talk in Ottawa.
It is my belief that much of this is indeed planned and is tactical. In this case, the idea is to identify anything which is an area primarily of the indigenous peoples of Europe, and their decedents in North America and elsewhere, and disenfranchise them using the tactics of Postmodernism. Specifically deceptive use of language. What you lament as being outrageous, wrong and stupid, I see as tactical, planned and effective. We must understand this or we will commit racial, cultural and historical suicide just to avoid being called racist.
The only ideology which is truly not racist, is Jeffersonian liberalism. We must return to that. A culture based on merit, which has racial implications overall, but none individually, as opposed to postmodernism, which is entirely about race and as many divisions as one can make in order to create a majority of minorities, and focus them all in an attack on primarily White males, although often much more viciously in an attack on non-white and non-males who side with reason and Enlightenment/Jeffersonian values.
I could expand this into an essay and perhaps I will. But I hope it suffices to make the point. This is tactical, and its manifestations of a strategy, and its working if even Jordan Peterson and Gad Saad cannot admit what is taking place, or worse, actually do not see it.
I actually think its the latter as both these men likely went to school as kids, then another school, then another school, then some more school, then they started working at schools. So not a lot of real world experience in some ways. Not to say Jordan Peterson are not massively effective in their fields. And that their work is not of value. It really and truly is and both are well deserving of all that they have and more.
But I believe their view of the current war of the red-green axis against classical civilization is slightly naive.
