Great post Ken, this part is particularly funny and ironic to me and something I've never understood when people advocate for the collectivist narrative of intersectionality.

The very nature of intersectionality is that it will cannibalize itself.

Interesting situation developing in Durham. A local news outlet ran an opinion piece calling for a theater to cancel a Peterson speech: https://www.indyweek.com/news/archives/2018/06/28/dear-dpac-we-really-need-to-talk-about-jordan-peterson - interestingly, the Durham mayor is one of the founders of this publication...

The Durham City Council wrote up a statement:https://www.facebook.com/ProTemJillianJ/posts/928000017379180

Peterson responded, but so did the National Coalition Against Censorship: https://ncac.org/news/ncac-cautions-durham-elected-officials-against-no-platforming-jordan-peterson

The city basically is trying to deplatform him. Pretty shameful, but also it shows that this stuff isn't just isolated to college campuses. Elected officials should have a lot more pause before casually tossing around terms like 'racist, misogynist, and transphobic.'

Ho-ly cow I’m about an hour and a half into I think the latest Rogan/Peterson - #1139 and it is freaking amazing. These conversations are a gift to humanity - should be required listening for all high school freshmen

Those two are really good together. Rogan keeps him grounded. Sometimes when JP is with Rubin it gets a bit too existential
