Jordan Peterson, the Sacred, and the Therapeutic......

Posted by no one in particular.....;P..........
Therein, I think, lies Dr. Peterson's great appeal. The four-fifths of Americans who think that PC has gone too far do not want to undo the great cultural transformation of the past half-century, which has placed self-esteem at the center of human concerns at the expense of traditional virtues. We no longer wish to do what is good and upright in the eyes of God; who does this God think He is, sitting in judgment over us? We want to be our own little gods and make ourselves into whatever we would like to be. We have, as Justice Kennedy wrote in the Obergefell decision, a right "to define and express [our] identity." That is the purpose of therapy, which asserts that healing comes from within, that man is the measure of all things, and our own sense of self-esteem and well-being is the gauge against which our behavior must be measured.

"We want to be our own little gods and make ourselves into whatever we would like to be."

It strikes me that what is being manipulated by Political Correctness is the sense of politeness. Those manipulating it have turned it into a witch hunt
by people motivated exactly as David states above. Anyone not being polite (enough) is a "witch" Anyone that was never a victim of (fill in the blank) is a potential witch that has witch privilege and need to be constantly reminded of their witch priviledge.

You better not pout you better not cry you better be polite, I'm telling you why
Political Correctness is coming around.

It knows what you've been thinking. It knows what it is you said. It knows when you have been racist or not.
Even inside your head.
So for sure you better dread.

Eviscerate the shell of social norms to subvert the culture that invented them. There was a guy that came up with that....... oh, yeah.......him.......

The sort of parasite that would invade the body of a culture to destroy it from within can do it when the connective tissue which is the body of meaning, stories and wisdom that define that culture; is weak. Jordan Peterson, along with Vervaeke, Pageau, VanderKlay and others, are working as antibodies to restore the tissue health of a culture, so it can fight off the opportunistic infection as symbolised by the hard left and survive.........

Jordan Peterson's Therapy...

Post by Milo » Sat Feb 08, 2020 3:11 am

So it turns out he's a drug addict who has turned to quack treatments.

What is it about Russia and rightwingnuts these days?
Jordan Peterson is recovering from a severe addiction to benzodiazepine tranquilizers and was recently near death in an induced coma, his daughter Mikhaila said.

He is being treated at a clinic in Russia after being repeatedly misdiagnosed at several hospitals in North America, she said.

The University of Toronto psychologist who became an intellectual hero to a global audience by aligning self-help theory with anti-progressive politics was first prescribed the medication a few years ago to treat anxiety after what Mikhaila described as an autoimmune reaction to food. His physical dependence on it became apparent to his family last April, when his wife Tammy was diagnosed with cancer.

The last year, which saw him retreat from public life after swiftly becoming one of the most famous authors in the world, has been an “absolute hell,” said Mikhaila, also a well known speaker on diet, who advocates eating only beef.

In November, he went to a rehabilitation centre in New York. He has previously discussed his long history of depression.

Jordan Peterson writes a column for the National Post, most recently in November.

His conditioned worsened through the winter, Mikhaila said. He was driven to thoughts of suicide by a movement disorder called akathisia, a well known side effect of various drugs for mental illnesses. It is a sense of restlessness and an inability to sit still.

“It became apparent that he was experiencing a paradoxical reaction to the medication, meaning the benzos did the opposite of what they’re supposed to do. These reactions are rare but are not unheard of,” Mikhaila said in the script for a video shared with the National Post.

She said the family sought alternative treatment in Russia because they found North American hospitals had misdiagnosed him, and were prescribing “more medications to cover the response he was experiencing from the benzodiazepines,” Mikhaila said. “He nearly died several times.”

She and her husband took him to Moscow last month, where he was diagnosed with pneumonia and put into an induced coma for eight days. She said his withdrawal was “horrific,” worse than anything she had ever heard about. She said Russian doctors are not influenced by pharmaceutical companies to treat the side-effects of one drug with more drugs, and that they “have the guts to medically detox someone from benzodiazepines.”

Jordan Peterson has only just come out of an intensive care unit, Mikhaila said. He has neurological damage, and a long way to go to full recovery. He is taking anti-seizure medication and cannot type or walk unaided, but is “on the mend” and his sense of humour has returned.

“He’s smiling again for the first time in months,” she said.

Might as well let Mikhaila state it herself:

Well here's a guy prattling on about how weak everyone else is while stoned out of his gourd, who then runs away from real medicine when his drug addiction catches up with him. It's rank hypocrisy but nothing new with the rightwingnut intelligentsia.

Peterson has openly talked about his health problems for years. But at least he does not suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome.
