The name is class. It is the triple triangle that is tied in a knot.

The worm has turned. You'll soon be praising ol' JP Führer at this rate.

I suppose you might have to separate Internet warrioring with those on an actual quest for personal growth. Of course there will be people who use his terminology to win whatever transient Internet argument is currently blazing, but by that logic, the ones who are actually gaining something real from what he says are less likely to be getting involved in Internet spats. Maybe? It seems to me that if his message is getting through to people,  then getting away from the likes of Facebook and Twitter would be a solid first move to make. I'm not really interested in having a circular argument about his merits or demerits. I think we've all been there.

From what I can tell, though, he is as concerned about the lunatic fringe on both sides. Maybe the far right hate him as well, I suppose their voice isn't as culturally prominent so you would have to dig to find it. The Cultural Marxism stuff that he talks about is almost a side show (you will argue a clever one, I'm sure,  which may be true) to his valuable message. That's my take on him. The ideological battles are less valuable to me than his discourse on meaning and the powerful symbolism of religion. That's fascinating to me, and many more it seems,  and opens up avenues of exploration to people. That's his value, essentially. He is asking people to stop and think for a minute.

For all the anti-Peterson rhetoric I see thrown about,  the fact of his importance and influence on a vast number of people remains unchanged. Whether you agree with him or not, or believe he is a monster or a charlatan, he seems to be getting through to a massive number of disenfranchised people who are finding meaning in their lives through his, dare I say it, positive message. And he is like a gateway drug into a world of fascinating online discussion and discovery. That alone is to be applauded. People need to use their time on the Internet in better,  more productive ways and the likes of Peterson, Harris, Michael Schermer, Brett (and Heather) and Eric Weinstein in their respective shows, Lex Fridman, Joe Rogan, Glen Loury etc. are, rather than just wildly trying to bring their perceived cultural opponents down,  are offering alternative views and interviews with a wide array of interesting people. That's my experience at least. Peterson recently introduced me to Iain McGilchrist and I'm slowly (very slowly) inching my way into his vast thesis on the divided brain. The amount of fascinating people I have discovered trough my own YouTube adventures over the past few years is astonishing. I have discovered all sorts of interests I never knew I had so when I see these attacks on Jordan Peterson, who as far as I can tell from the hours I've spent listening to him speak,  is all about improving yourself, your prospects and the lives of those around you, alarm bells ring.

Why are the left so threatened by him? Is it because he is encouraging people to think for themselves,  to act for themselves and not to give in to lunatic woke ideology? That might make the masses harder to control and direct. Dunno,  just a thought.

That one with the three lads on tour is a riot. I never really liked Gino before but grew fond of him in that show. So funny. Just pure fucking eejitry.

I finished watching Rake. I thought it was fun ask the way through but it probably doesn't really need another season. I found it consistent enough throughout.

If you're expecting anything inflammatory or outrageous you'll be massively disappointed.

He's also worse than Hitler and almost as bad as Donald Trump.
