Socialists don't want him talking on campus. Feminists fear him. His rise to prominence has made him enemies.

This YouTuber chronicles his recent (very serious) health decline and contraction of Covid-19.

While I don't always agree with his aggressive methods, he certainly is a man that is able to see clearly to the heart of a debate and see the truth in it with minimal bias.
I don't think he would be a fun adversary in an argument.

omg this 1 year old video dissects her "Lion diet" and business claims. Her diet has influenced both her parents, and they were both in terrible health. Coincidence?

A very interesting guy, Peterson.

But I have found that any discussion of his talks and views is almost guaranteed to set of a major war.

Don't ask me how I know.

Tell us what you really think lol.
Did she knock you back for a date lol.
Seriously though. I don't know much about the daughter but I found Peterson fragile state very sad. It's not nice to see such a powerhouse of confidence knocked around like that. I am no big fan nor hater of him but I wish him well.

Her diet certainly doesn't seem to have done her any harm.

I think Jordan had a few big hits close together, that is what has shaken him so badly. His wife's illness etc.

I really found his early motivational stuff very good. Maybe a bit too direct for the more sensitive folk around.
And his use of biblical quotes could be a bit confusing. But one could usually see what he was getting at.

I do wish him well.

Given Peterson's use of biological structures (such as Lobsters) for his theories. I found it strange he would go along with the exclusive all beef or carnivorous diet, since humans are omnivores and predominately plant based diets have shown to be most healthy (argument in the video). I suspect because it's his daughter, he might have a clouded judgement. He did get addicted to an anti-anxiety pharmaceutical drug. The wife getting stomach or liver cancer I guess is probably a coincidence, but it does raise suspicion.

Well..interesting that a clinical psychologist and professor , who is telling others how to behave, ends up with severe mental issues himself.
My original knowledge of him came from some discussions on a forum and then I read Wiki on him and some articles. The major criticisms came from the fact that while he often acted (or at least was at one time perceived) like a humanist or liberal , most/many of his arguments/positions seemed to promote conservative (or right wing) ideology. This could be that he was misconstrued but one would think a professor of Psychology would be better at making his position clear.
I of course also hope he has decent health since these days we are all suceptible to issues in our own lives with the pandemic.

His liberal views do seem a bit at odds with the 'self control' message he was giving out. I think he was saying that the whole key to a better life was knowing yourself and actively 'doing the right thing'.
