TR Memescape

  • Talkrational: I've read things you people wouldn't believe. Spacial narratives foregrounding biopower. I learned about discursive foodways being written on the body. All those insights will be lost after comprehensives, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Do not go to East Germany!

Enjoy the European flavor of fascism
how did TR turn out largely okay when so many internet atheists of the 00's turned out so bad
He's evasive when asked about his religious beliefs. He talks 'Christian' but flirts with agnosticism/atheism, gets all vague when asked things such as whether he believes in the resurrection of Jesus.

He's evasive when asked about anything

e: his fans' most common defense is "oh well you didn't watch dozens of hours of youtube videos or read tens of thousands of words so of course you don't understand what he meant in these paragraphs!"

which is ironic because one of his "rules for life" is "be precise in your language"
Damnit people, link!

And a followup:
Look: it's up to those who claim no relationship between atheism and Nazism/Marxism to deal with the fact that both were explicitly anti-religious movements.
Jesus, this guy's even more stupid than I thought.
I'm planning to get through the Peterson hype without reading anything by him, but is he genuinely religious (e.g. hates islam because christianity is the one true religion) or strategically religious (e.g. hates islam, therefore doesn't mind joining forces with christian right)?

Who knows!

Like everything else, he keeps it intentionally vague so he can never actually be pinned down to something he has to defend. He's definitely up to his eyeballs is mysticism, though.
Jordan Peterson routiney gets asked about "the Jewish question" and other anti-semetic nonsense at his speeches because that's the type of crowd he tends to draw. Rather than using his unfortunately large platform to denounce such beliefs and mindsets, at best he hems and haws and more frequently simply refuses to address the question at all.

Probably doesn't want to turn down the flow on the cash spigot.
look how meaningless and empty his head is:

You speak a lot about inequality and how it is 1) natural and necessary but that 2) it must be kept in check to maintain society. Have you given any thought to articulating some methods for fighting inequality that you agree with?

Yes. But it's a complex problem, and not one that we seem to be able easily to address. Investment in universally accessible infrastructure seems like a good thing. Good transportation systems, data systems, and educational systems seem to make everyone richer without some of the complications of income redistribution, per se.

But, more importantly, I think concentration on the development of the character of the individual is the best solution. It's also the one that is perhaps least like to cause harm.
Yeah. Honestly some of his arguments are on the level of a more eloquent Dave Hawkins.
he's literally off his meds
He's doing an ama right now, here's how it's going

Yeah. He's doing a hell of a job riling up angry young white males. He's also making ~80k a month off of them through patreon.

We live in weird, bad times.
yeah he has a long history of serious depression and tons of his videos are him getting all weepy over mundane shit

I liked this:

If Jordan is not a true free speech warrior, then what is he? The email sent through his wife's account described Bill 28, the parenting bill, as part of the "transgender agenda" and claimed it was "misleadingly" called "All Families are Equal." Misleading? What same-sex families and transgender people have in common is their upset of the social order. In Maps of Meaning, Jordan's first book, he is exercised by the breakdown of the social order and the chaos that he believes would result. Jordan is fighting to maintain the status quo to keep chaos at bay, or so he believes. He is not a free speech warrior. He is a social order warrior.

Reading the complaint, apparently the law is "whatever party the current governor is goes first on the ballot," which in Florida has been R for over 20 years. First-on-the-ballot is good for at least a couple of percentage points in a typical race.
lol how the fuck is this possibly legal? ballot position is pretty important!

Thanks, Obama

Migrant children under the care of United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) were allegedly beaten, threatened with sexual violence and repeatedly assaulted while in custody between 2009 and 2014, according to a report released Wednesday from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the International Human Rights Clinic at the University of Chicago Law School.
