Why do people have such a huge problem w/ Sam Harris and Jordan Peterson?
The first couple of times I saw Sam Harris, I thought he was pretty cool. But then I saw him on Bill Maher's show, and he seemed to be supporting views that inspire islamophobia. He lost me at that point.
He also seemed to be wandering into the wrong side of the race science debate, which I found disturbing.
I also saw Jordon Peterson on Bill Maher's show, and this is a totally non-intellectual argument, but he sort of acted like a complete and pompous douchebag.
I did some further research on him after the show, and he seems to have a strong following amongst the alt-right, and that didn't seem like a very good thing.
I have no problem with Sam Harris.
Jordon Peterson on the other hand is an opportunist rhetorician, an incincere peddler of right wing ideology in the usual camouflage of a practitioner of intellectual gamesmanship and a hypocrite.
The longer he continues in the public eye the more he shows his true colours but the less he cares; as his ever expanding patreon account lays testament to the public opinion of his bunko booth side show barkers cacophony of populist and pop psychology, as simply entertaining profitable waffle and less about the relevancy of his self opinionated verbosity's efficaciousness in the real world.
