If you like watching Peterson because there are some good bits you should also read Marx by principle. I doubt Marx is ever entertaining. I do watch Thomas Sowell, who famously was a Marxist when younger. He says his first real job working with numbers dealing with US employment figures, incentives and behavior cured him of that forever. Besides, why spend time on an ideology which is only occasionally 'good'? I rarely even watch Peterson. On 2/7/2023 at 1:29 PM, Michael Hardner said: 2. I have to turn him off when he talks about things that aren't "self help"... saying "there's no such thing as climate" on climate change, I'm not sure what he might have been referring to. It's not like he doesn't believe in climate change, AFAIK. He just thinks that the proposed solutions are largely unworkable and that humankind would be better helped by devoting that money to things like education and nutrition in the third world. His view is the only way out of the climate change issue is scientific/technological innovation and discoveries. Again, AFAIK. I don't devote much time to him. I just recall seeing an amusing and somewhat interesting little snippet on climate change from a question/answer session he did at Cambridge. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
