Phenomenal work on this! I’m really bummed about the hate that Peterson gets.
I would not agree with him on everything (mainly because the somewhat obvious ‘Slippery Slope’ fallacy he makes when speaking about Marxism, Postmodernism, etc.), but I recognize that this gent has studied these “collectivistic” regimes all his life. How could I be so stubborn to assume that he must be wrong? It is very likely that I am wrong.
For the critics, at least give him the benefit of the doubt. I just bought his most recent book today because of that infamous interview on Channel 4. It is encouraging to find a man that is making Dostoevsky — among other phenomenal writers — more relevant for today’s era. I really don’t understand why anyone would have a problem with that.
Great blog post!
