In this lecture, I explore the dreadful socio-political consequences of the individual inauthentic life: the degeneration of society into nihilism or totalitarianism, often of the most murderous sort, employing as an example the work/death camps of the Soviet Union.
Buy The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. It is arguably the most important book of the twentieth century.

This is the “it’s because I’m black, isn’t it?” Argument on steroids. Why is self accountability not the first place we look when something bad happens? You only have control over yourself. Plus the most effective way to prevent tripping is to watch where you are going.

I find it a real privilege to be able to attend the lectures of such a passionate and intelligent teacher. I choose the word teacher very carefully, many lecturers just lecture with no capacity to teach, only to share their accumulated knowledge. After watching Jordan Peterson i always feel that I have truly learned something. A day on which I learn nothing new is a wasted day.

"I doubt if the typical North American high school student reads 2100 pages of anything during their entire education in high school and certainly not something like 'The Gulag Archipelago ' ". In 1973~1974 I was in Junior High school and I bought a copy of 'The Gulag Archipelago', and read it. It's very true that our public school system wasn't the best. But I grew up in a home where reading was everything, and one of my favorite haunts was a newsstand /bookstore, where I stumbled across this very important piece of literature.

Some excellent points about the media Dave, I am hoping both Conservatives and Democrats can have a similar understanding of what the media is really about. I also hope that both Conservatives and Democrats can stop making up shit and just be honest with events as they unfold. With the majority of Conservatives still thinking Trump won the 2020 election, it appears Conservatives are lagging behind in the truth and honesty categories at this time. It’s also unfortunate that Trump could not admit he lost and is somehow trying to revive himself by continuing to promote this lie. This thinking or “strategy” is not working!

If everyone starts with the same amount and uniformly randomly trades, the outcome should be uniformly random too, right? (I'm not a statistician.) There's a much more likely cause of this: preferential association with people with more resources.

I like how we pretend we know anything about the Nazis. Everything the west knows about them was propagandized into the dirt. At least we have (relatively) believable accounts from the Soviet Union. Only the soviets found death camps.

Was it a coincidence that I woke up this morning and read the news. The main headline read, “Woman lied about being profiled” and so I looked up her name. She is now an assistant professor at NYU teaching racism as a coarse. Mid-day, I look at the news again. It says that a Senator asks transgender US Assistant HSS secretary elect if she thinks it’s ok to give a 3 year old sex assignment surgery. I have dinner and turn off the tv and THIS is at the top of my watch list. I watch, share and now I will look to myself.

Solzhenitsyn's 'August 14' is one of the greatest novels ever written, indeed. As far as Shakespeare goes, Darwin stated, 'every time I try to read Shakespeare, I feel nauseated.' And, in a sense, are not all the historic atrocities due to us, humans, being these characters, unable to surpass them?

No matter what manner socialism is played out it will always lead to dictatorship. Marx and Engels confirmed this many times. They called it the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat”. A necessary stage in the development of socialist societies toward full blown communism. This is extremely important. The totalitarianism of Stalin was dubbed necessary of many soviet elites. So, therefore, no matter what anyone tells you always remember that socialism demands dictatorship by an elite class on the remainder of society. Unless Marxist man learns to love socialism and totally forgets his life under capitalism he will be forever be trapped in a state of collective suppression and will never evolve into communist nirvana!

So much of this is relevant to right NOW. The biden "victory" then the immediate implementation of group rights. The demonisation of the political opposition, the group-think, the totalitarianism, the politicization of covid, the forced injection zeal and the fracturing nature of the identify politics. Meanwhile our governments are building a techno-surveillance police state around a "deadly pandemic" that is destroying much less people's lives than the government policies themselves. Worst of all its across the entire planet and seemingly coordinated by.a higher power (WEF? The Bilderburg Group?) Comrades. Welcome to the Neo-Soviet Global Union.

Lucifer was just a choir director... lol that people think he was God's highest angel. Angels and demons were both created. One third of each fell. Lucifer lead the fallen, and he was highest among those that fell. Funny thing is, one fulfills his purposes regardless of which influence he chooses. It is engraved into the fabric of that which exists, to continue to exist by any means necessary. What is necessary is relative to a liar, which is why the righteous man knows what is and has it, where as the wicked man says the righteous man has prevented him from having the knowledge to have it, and so the righteous man should gibs duh freeh stuph... or else gubberment will be "here to halp."

Why is Jordan selling a facemask? After all the virus is bought to us by the same people who bought us political correctness and the cancel culture. The same chumps who went after Jordan. The face mask is a modern symbol of conformity. Maybe the virus is not as bad as its made out to be - but Jordans mask says otherwise. It says 'Fear coronavirus'. He promotes that angle by selling the mask. Charging 14 UK pounds for it further takes the p166. Is this really the worlds 'greatest thinker?'

What do you think of Alexander Solzhenitsyn? AYN RAND: I regard him ideologically as lower than the rulers of Russia. He is the worst public caricature of a monster that has emerged in this age, which displays an awful lot of public caricatures and unappetizing characters. Before you speak of Solzhenitsyn or ask anything about him, please read the letter that he sent to the Soviet authorities shortly before he was deported. Read that letter. It has been published; it has been translated. I read it in the original Russian. In it, that man proclaims, in effect, that he is a totalitarian collectivist. He says so openly - though not in those words. He is merely against Marxism. He wants Russia to remain a dictatorship, but a dictatorship run by the Russian Church. He wants Russian religion, the Greek Orthodox Church, to be a substitute for Marxism. In other words, he wants to take Russia back to the stage before Peter the Great, to the seventeenth century or earlier. He is anti-industrial and wants to take Russia back to being an agrarian country. And that horrible, pretentious person is held as some kind of hero of liberation. He doesn’t want to free the world. He is denouncing the West; he is denouncing Western civilization. He is that ancient, chauvinistic aberration: a Slavophile. He says, in that letter of his, that he wants the Russian government - the Communist Party - to keep all its economic and political power; he lists specifically the power over production, trade, and distribution, over foreign relationships, over the army. All he wants is that the government allow people to speak and write freely. Now remember, he’s a writer. And in the conclusion of this unspeakable document, he says the following (I am quoting from memory): I want nothing for myself, I am sure that you, the rulers, have never seen and cannot imagine a man who is not asking something for himself - well here I am, please look at me. Is this a “selfless” person? Or is this an example of the worst kind of conventional “selfishness” and vanity? Well, that’s as much of a motive as any religious mystic-altruist would ever project. That’s all that his disinterested “selflessness” means: give me freedom to write, and the other human activities and professions can be enslaved, I’m quite willing to put up with it. With ideas of that kind, to come here and posture as a prophet of freedom is really adding insult to injury. Sure, what Solzhenitsyn wrote about the Soviet concentration camps is true. Better people have said it before. We should consider them, not a man who is philosophically the exact opposite of everything the West stands for or should stand for - a man who is a profound enemy of individualism and of reason. That is my opinion of Mr. Solzhenitsyn. Boston, Ford Hall Forum, 1976.

One can hope that the seriousness in Petersons voice gets through to people that such times in History are not just some story thread and shrug off. The tipping point for a society to collapse and become barbaric is always just around the corner. and really, it doesn't have to collapse to become barbaric, just look at the Chinese government, one the entire world should turn its back on.
