  • Jordan Peterson Defines Creative People

    07/18/2018 2:58:07 PM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 21 replies
    Video LinkThis is a very interesting video. It's title doesn't accurately capture all the Jordan wisdom imparted in it on this subject.He speaks a lot of the need for non-creative people as well as creative types (the non-creative people being needed as managers and business leaders and the creative types needed as entrepreneurs and, of course, artists).I think it was in another video in which he explains Trump as a creative type and not a manager, though Trump has done quite well as a manager. Though Trump has done well as a manager, his dominant creative side is quite obvious...

    How is it that four million Croats could build a team good enough to make it to the World Cup final, beating Argentina (43 million), England (53 million) and hosts Russia (144 million) along the way? The country famously didnít even exist the last time England made it to a World Cup semi-final in 1990. The country declared independence in 1991, but was embroiled in the war in the Balkans as Yugoslavia split for several years. Most Croats were living in what is now Croatia, but a large minority existed in what are now Serbia and Bosnia especially. What ensued...

    An estimated 60,000 people gathered in and around Daley Plaza at 11 AM this morning, including a marching band, voter registrars, Captain America, and a family who might have been Aztec warriors. The heat index was above 100 degrees, but thousands stayed through the hour-long rally and the march afterward. (The column of marchers was so long that as some were returning to the plaza at the end of the 15-block route, others were still just leaving.) There was a handful of speakers, though the crowd was so vast that their voices didn't carry very far. One young woman spoke...

As the story goes an Alabama man, Wade Seago shot it from his front porch with a revolver when he saw the hog near his porch and dog. Most people could careless about Wade's rights to shoot the...

    John Travolta's new movie "Gotti" hit rock bottom faster than a cinderblock tied to a body being thrown into a river. "Gotti" has scored a zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes from film critics, a rare feat managed by only a few dozen movies. At the time of this writing, only 17 reviews have been counted for the film, so the film's fortune could change. But, as of now, all reviews of the Travolta film are currently are rotten. "That the long-gestating crime drama Gotti is a dismal mess comes as no surprise. What does shock is just how multifaceted...

    Mark Levin calling Trump's trade and economic advisers "idiots" in the first hour. Then he drones on and on about how having a trade deficit is supposed to be good for consumers and belittling other conservative talk radio hosts as "It depends" rather than discussing free markets. Does he not know that this is a negotiation tactic of Trump and the goal here is to make trade policies better for everyone involved? Of course he doesn't, because at heart he's a Never Trumper who is secretly hoping Trump fails so that some massive conservative movement will rise up and elect...
