I've come to realize that he's right about more or less everything, but for literally purely retarded reasons. Im not sure if he is genuine or if hes just trying to be accessible.

Watch his Maps of Meaning series along with his book, but make sure to read all the materials he references and understand them.

Nothing he says is revolutionary, and he knows this and brings it up constantly. He is a very good complier of much more abstract ideas. Maps of Meaning is Amazing IMHO, the self help stuff is were the money is at and were the reddit tier fanboys come from.

That God is real not because he actually exists but because he doesn't like what happens if we don't believe he exists.

I've been avoiding interacting with his fanbase because I genuinely like what he's doing, and I don't want them to ruin it. The most common criticism seems to be that he doesn't know what post-mordenism. Can anyone give me resources to better understand it? Everything I've researched into so far seems to confirm what he says it is.

I really liked him at first. his first appearance on jre was great and inspired me to start reading again with dostoyevsky and jung.

its been years since then and hes become a sell out and broken record but i cant blame him.
if you actually check out some alt right communities they hate him now. mostly because he denies any kind of jewish conspiracy/nepotism and instead claims jews are just smarter and more competent.

This. He's a guide to a western culture we all know exists but lost touch of. It only feels retarded because our society needs a very frank retarded sit-down. If you're a brainlet or a bigbrain it might come off wrong. Of course he has some antiquated positions and ideas, but his message has more to do with reviving our own culture than doing something specific that he wants.

Do people think Jordan Peterson is trying to teach people how to take care of themselves and their community for some secret malicious gain? Would you be happy if he was some kind of saint that lived broke on the side of the street?

Not at all, i think he is extremely beneficial in the larger picture. I just think Maps of Meaning is much better than anything he's done lately. The bible series is interesting, but his interviews have become extremely repetitive, and from the data he's mentioned on his authoring program, that's all the self help needed. It's pretty obvious this 12 Rules book is more so a cash grab.

He doesn't actually claim that. He makes a distinction between material facts, and moral truths, and contrary to many today, he places moral truths as a higher order of truth than material facts. He is not saying that real things aren't real unless they suit his desire, but rather that if our understanding of reality does not help us live, it cannot be considered true. This does not challenge the material necessity of any particular fact, but rather introduces a loose moral direction to help untangle the endless relativity of post-modernism.

Oh, that's a shame. I took a distancing break after Maps of Meaning to clear hype and avoid getting wrapped up in the memes, seems that was the end anyways. It was a really condensed expose of his ideas because he spent so long putting his Maps of Meaning book together.
