    He is getting rich saying what a lot of males want to hear - political correctness is ridiculous.

    His core idea that trying to create a world that is fair and equal inevitably leads to oppressive totalitarianism is spot on and is worth reflecting on.

    I was a bit surprised by this (though I did notice he was fairly busy)


    Considering that popular people posting random junk on Twitter/Instagram/etc make about half a million per post, I suppose he might be more deserving of being successful, however I can't but help think he seems very different from just a few years ago when he started uploading on Youtube (which incidentally he seems to not be making money from directly, despite being exceedingly popular--not normally do you find post after post specifically referring to the video in which the topic is about alongside it--and having the potential to make a lot from it, if he isn't already.) Edit: He might actually be making money from ad revenue on Youtube, however since I always use an ad blocker I never notice it, though I'm not seeing any figures on it. I still find it perplexing he needs Patreon support. . .

    Although I tend to despise how capitalism works, I prefer that people like Jordan Peterson benefit more than not.

    Maybe I could emulate him and also become very rich by saying stuff that one group of people want to hear while managing to be offensive to the PC brigade. The key to success in publishing / public speaking is to first make a name for oneself. I could travel to Canada, say something anti-PC to get arrested then use the notoriety to launch my career. Jordan Peterson seems to have the male audience well covered. Perhaps I could pitch an anti-feminist message to females.

    I am being oppressed by angry feminists. Come on ladies, support me on patreon.

    Well, if not rich, at least President of the United States.

    Telling a group of people what they want to hear or speaking to their fears definitely gets politicians elected.

    Seriously though, if I ever did become a public figure I would not seek to profit from it because my motivation is to help people by speaking truth. Profiting from speaking and writing would make me lose credibility and corrupt me.

    Solid Correction to Jordan Peterson mis-stepping on MGOTW issues.

    Why is Jordan Peterson controversial?

    Peterson's core positions are an objection to enforced speech and the idea that males should step up so he is therefore offensive to people who want enforced speech and think that males should step down rather than step up. However, I think it goes deeper than that. I believe that the powers that be are pushing for enforced speech and men to step down, so advocating contrary positions is a threat to their plans. This is causing them to manufacture outrage in an effort to neutralize the threat and continue to advance their plans.
