It looks to me, from an outsiders perspective, your country is polarizing in a way thats not good and that, you know, people are going after Trump and I understand that, Peterson elaborated, but theres all these people that elected him and identify with him and theyre not taking this well
You might not think theyre very bright and all of that
but you know, you need to have respect for the rest of your citizens and if your country is going to pull itself apart and as you really see this happening from an outsiders perspective.

The Media Elite is very out of touch.
Peterson is well worth a listen.
“at the heart of it, Trump is a proxy for the disdain those people have for a sizeable part of the people of the United States.”
If we cant protect a false view of reality, well lose credibility.
This actually makes sense to the MSM-Democrats.
Wearing a Hillary Pin and having a Hillary bumper sticker does not increase your IQ to a genius level. Neither does a Trump pin or bumper sticker make you an imbecile. When you sulk about an election, and don’t move on, is it not a sign of immaturity? 2016, the year of the vintage whine!
Darn, that should have been project. Autocorrect strikes again.
Could there be anything with more gravitas and sincerity than a panel assembled by Bill Maher?
The interview was ruined by having an @sshole politician and two left wing media talking heads along with Peterson
Peterson was making fairy complex, logical points, and the others were simply spewing cliches.
Maher knows that the 63 million supporters of Pres. Trump will not stand for his assassination, whether political or physical, as Prof. Petersen implied. The rest of the panel was clueless. When the civil war would erupt, they would be shocked and defenseless.
>>Peterson is well worth a listen.
Peterson is well worth hours of listening, and has an appropriate YouTube library for that. And his new book is very worthwhile as well.

I’m a regular viewer of Peterson on Youtube, and will admit that he’s probably the one intellectual guy who take a very complex mess, and explain it in less than 3 minutes. I would strongly recommend twenty minutes a week of his lectures or discussions.
On this Maher group (I watched the whole talk), he put them to the problem of what happens when they finally impeach Trump and assume that Trump voters won’t react. I would suggest that you’d see an entire decade of ‘bridge-burning’ by the Trump voters, with about half of the GOP in the House/Senate readily dismissed, and impeachment demanded upon the next Democratic President. It would be a very unwise thing to turn this group into a revengeful situation.
Maher calls Trump a wannabe dictator, when in reality it was Obama who used executive privilege like a dictator, and who uttered the phrases ‘we won’, and ‘Republicans can come along for the ride - but they're going to have to sit in the back of the bus’. They ignore Hillary having FBI files on political adversaries, threatening women who might derail her husbands political success - and thus hers, and all the other deceitful, unethical, and illegal escapades about which most here are aware.
It sickens me. In the end, this is driven by a narrative sold to people by the academic establishment in the US - which has been entirely co-opted. That narrative is that the groupthink that people are indoctrinated with under the guise of higher education is the only truth, and that those who don't ascribe to this groupthink are stupid, or uneducated, or bigoted, or ‘deplorables’. There is no room for those who don't embrace the groupthink, no room for those who would vote differently than the groupthink approves of, and definitely no room for those who speak with a different voice.
The Maher panel in that video exemplifies how the left lives in a separate, hermetically-sealed, propagandist universe.
A recent liberal post read:
Don’t think that we’ll forgive you for Trump!
Leftists continue believing in their religious cult of Marxism...despite the history leftism always fails economically, moprally & culturally.
By Einstein’s definition, that is insane stupidity.
CONCLUSION: Leftists are insanely stupid.
Makes Obama’s statements more poignant.
“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies, and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us’ -’
And ‘Voting is the best revenge’

Thank you for posting those links.
take away homosexuality in all it’s derivatives, abortion, immigration and redistributing producers income to non producers and we would all love each other..............
.......we are POLARIZED permanently. This problem (these differences of fundamental beliefs) cannot be fixed.
Well I have tremendous respect for Jordan Peterson, but I thought he was rather weak when surrounded by all the leftists on the panel. He made absolutely no strong case to convert anyone’s thinking. Instead he probably strengthened their resolve that they are correct.
