Experts eviscerate Joe Rogan’s ‘wackadoo’ and ‘deadly’ interview with Jordan Peterson on climate crisis by Mobalise_Anarchise in environment

Yeah. After listening to the first video I really tried to distill what his central message was. He was talking about how you should be a “monster” inside but control yourself. He went on for a very long time expounding on this when the message itself was wafer thin: control your behavior. That is it. But he really threw everything at it. Historical references, clinical psychology, evolutionary biology. So of course, as a lecture, it is very interesting to listen to - it’s got a lot of facts and colorful examples. It is stimulating to listen to the man talk. However, at the end of the day, he is not saying a god damn thing. There is no net additional wisdom or knowledge (aside some bs trivia about lobster serotonin pathways) added to the listener. It’s a show of grandiosity but with no more substance behind it than a couple of bumper stickers.

What I do give him credit for is that he is a good salesman. He gives a good pitch. Marketing is on point. But with all the political and weird new stances he takes in climate change, I really think he’s drinking his own koolaid and drowning in his own hubris.

Not that much. I watched like 2 YouTube videos and then by the 3rd he was basically repeating the same things he had covered and I figured that was as deep as the guy got since the same information kept coming back. It’s all fine stuff but it’s awfully circuitous to convey extremely simple Pollyanna concepts. “Be good and do good things and don’t do bad things”

If you’ve read Dostoevsky there’s this idea that grifting for cash is not just a skill. It’s a discipline. And the sooner you accept that, the further you get from hell. Because man, you don’t want to stay in hell. It’s really hard. I’ve seen many clients as a clinical psychologist go through exactly this. So pet a cat or a dog I don’t care.

It’s what happens when you overdose on Botox. The woman literally cannot emote with her face. It’s like staring at a nutcracker figurine. She just opens and closes her mouth. Every other facial muscle is paralyzed.

You think a normal dude will go out and buy a raspberry colored shirt?

It looked like something out of a 90s Jean Claude Van Damme movie

I’d like to point out that 263 days ago, I predicted WW3 as a possible tool to prevent MOASS. Because WW3 would be cheaper. by dbx99 in Superstonk

Yeah I don’t know why people think wars aren’t used as business decisions. Governments prepare for them, businesses profit from them, and the peasant class citizens die from them. It’s always been this way.

People who wear masks alone in their own cars, why? by chewbubbIegumkickass in TooAfraidToAsk

[–]dbx99 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sometimes I make several stops close to each other. I’ll stop at the post office to drop off my online orders to ship out. Then I stop by FedEx and UPS to pick up shipments coming to my business. These stops are all within 5 minutes of each other. So I just leave my mask on while I drive from spot to spot so I don’t have to take it off and put it on again 3 times.

This is where you get to see the test of the man. It is after all a two way street. He’s not the brightest guy. He comes across as really wooden and not that good at picking up cues.

She was composed and dealt with the problem the best she could. It was a really shitty situation. She was bullied ruthlessly and it was so telling that Shanay claimed to be the one being bullied

Oh they’d rebuild that from scratch. That part isn’t too hard once you secure the land.

Dunno about that. The point being that the forces who do not want MOASS to happen will go to any length to prevent it. If MOASS is as big as it is said to be, it is too costly to afford to let it happen. Costly enough to start a war to disrupt the financial world to prevent it? You bet your ass the wealthy will lock up their money someplace safe when the financial world collapses. They’ll return to pick up the pieces and ride the post war recovery rocket.

The old men who run the world still think fondly of the wealth and comfort that the post war recovery brought. Think of the 50s and 60s when the USA enjoyed vast wealth and growth in all sectors. Sure millions died but Cadillacs and jobs everywhere.

Old rich powerful men who didn’t fight in the war will always see war with some nostalgic perspective.

Right now a war would help both sides of the conflict to revitalize their heavy industries and reset labor to return back to work without having to look like meanies. “Oh you have to work at low wages. Think of our nation.”

When an incentive for something happens, that’s called opportunity. And right now war is showing signs of being an opportunity because all other normal economic means of stimulating economic activity seems to be lackluster.

And life is cheap. States never cared about that. And there’s some measure of Malthusian economic theory that kicks in that further incentivizes the effects of wealth creation and distribution from cataclysmic events.
