I’ve been listening to a few interviews with Jordan Peterson.
I can understand why he has as many fans as he does; he’s pretty slick during discussions. What irks me a bit are the arguments he makes in support of religion providing both a basis for morality and for meaning in one’s life.
Understand, it’s not that he makes the arguments; he’s entitled to his opinion. It’s just that logically and factually they seem easily countered.
I say that carefully because people he debates are no slouches and me saying the above seems at least a tad presumptuous if not outright filled with a measure of self-importance typically found only in people under the age of 25 and I’m more than twice that age.
Still, I’ve yet to hear anyone ask him some plain questions like “which religion?”
I mean, obviously, not all religions are the same and even if one agrees on a particular religion, there’s always a process of choosing what is moral and what isn’t moral in the teachings of said religion. The argument then becomes circular . . . you need religion to decide what’s moral but we recognize which parts of religious teachings are not moral. How exactly do we do that?
. . . I’ll probably do a post on what I’ve heard him say but I want to hear more of his interviews and reasoning. Slick, he is and there are areas of agreement we share about some important issues . . . we just differ in the paths we take and I think his is a dangerous path.
And now, the photo:

Here’s a reason why I can find fault with Unions. Yes, yes, they do (did?) some good but many of the rules that hamper progress came about through union negotiations that had little vision for unintended consequences and the future. Basically, Unions exist for the same reason as political parties . . . to line their pockets.
Yup . . . that sounds about right. As an exercise, do a bit of research as to why so many communities and states age getting into serious financial trouble. And, guess what? There are rules in place that won’t let you take back a move . . . nope; they’re gonna go down in flames before giving an inch . . . and take everyone else down with them.
But, what do I know? It’s not like I’m an expert or anything . . . sure, I can read, and know a bit of math, and can do a bit of research. But that just gives me the picture of what is.
Meanwhile — just like the finances of the country, states, and local communities — the worms are continuing to melt under the climate change that’s obviously a hoax.
Yup! Definitively losing cohesion on the . . . Second Day Of Plastic Multicolor Worm Monument Beginning To Melt During Latest Heatwave.
And . . . that’s it
Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.
