Socrates vs. the Sophists
Jesus vs. the Pharisees
Paul vs. the Areopagus
Peterson vs. the Postmodernist Neomarxists

Why does this pattern keep repeating?

Does every great teacher have to triumph over a pit of vipers to become great?

This. Peterson is playing on easy mode. Everyone that is well read can btfo of post modernists, now think about how easy it must be for a man like Peterson. He is just shilling for his books.

Peterson is playing on easy mode. He is kind of like Dawkins bullying christian fundamentalists.

That explains why to this day Jews will hiss and flee when you show them a cross. Because crucifying Jesus had no blowback for them for the next 2,000 years.

Why do you say that? He does drift away from its definition a bit to further his own views but he has mostly got it right.

In his big anti-postmodernist manifesto, he just attacks a strawman that is based on the etymology of a single statement by Derrida.
Peterson just uses "post-modernism" a dog whistle. What he really means is "feminism".

Well, feminism is derived from post modernism after all.
I always found it funny tht he always dissed Deridda while ignoring other, more important figures just because it fits his narrative.
And he going all religion is salvation and shit while saying nothing bad about the church.

Third wave feminism, yes, but I think the theories about patriarchy that Peterson disputes are older than that.

It's funny to me. He defends his right to free speech by saying that people should get to use their own words, and he does just that. Words like "God" and "pray" lose all of their meaning when they emerge from his mouth in an obvious attempt to appeal to traditional conservatives.

Some of you Petersonfags please tell me the concept of Post-Modernity. How can you say that modernity is over?

He focuses on older postmodernists for a very specific reason that you should know already, he is attacking at the base. Like how the leftists are trying to attack fundamentals, he is literally doing the same thing.
Now to tell you the truth I prefer him over them any part of the week jut because he can actually communicate his opinions without spouting memes/being an obnoxious fuck (although his SUFFERING REEE and YOU SHOULD BE GRATEFUL OF CONSERVATISM came pretty close).

We have reached a certain point where pop "phlisophers" offer emotional supports and good feelings/making you feel superior than the other tht doesn't agree with your own opinions, you can discern this from the absolute complete lack of any dialogue whatsoever.
