The POS people, like Peterson, who would wholeheartedly support the elimination of Medicare and Social Security for EVERYONE, not just the "off the rails" liberals, without blinking an eye, are TEXTBOOK FASCIST ENABLERS.

Another ardent critic of the "fascist" Peterson who hasn't read or listened to him. You guys write like you have been studying the guy for years and have become experts, but the content of you're writing betrays that you have barely looked into him for more than few minutes.

What is a stated above is FALSE - he has never said anything about eliminating Medicare or Social Security that I'm aware of. If you can come up with evidence to the contrary, we are happy to look at it. But we're not holding our breath.

The rest of your rant is completely irrelevant to this topic so I will ignore it.

Complaining about the moderation policies on the Diner is also a VIOLATION of the CoC.  :icon_sunny:  So is insinuating I am stupid and don't consider the arguments from all sides fairly and with due diligence. I am a very patient guy in general.  I will in this case be Magnanimous & Kind  ;D and not send you back to the Cooler for this one.  I'm sure you can figure out what pushes my buttons and steer clear of me if you want to participate in good faith.  I can't speak for Surly of course.

Happy to speak for myself.

People who contribute to the Diner often post on a variety of issues. Ashvin posts on one, and one alone: the one that he knows will sow division and conflict.

I have seen this movie before, a couple of years ago when MKing, GO, JoeP and some others engaged in elaborate pearl clutching over some IP checks and went on some tear about online surveillance, conflating that with freedom of speech, etc. Always instructive to see how ideologues are keenly interested in freedom of their speech, while if yours is impinged, go fuck yourself with a hammer.

When I asked Ashvin why he disavowed his earlier writings and went to the lengths of attempting to "scrub" his online identity free of associations with topics of doom and collapse, he replied that he no longer believed those things. Which makes it interesting as to why he would be interested in posting in something called the "Doomstead Diner" and devoted to such topics. Although, as noted, he only posts on one.

Something doesn't smell right.

So what? Do I have to post on a variety of topics to have the right to post or to be free from suspicion of your paranoid accusations.

Is it too much to ask that people here actually listen to each other's perspectives and attempt to engage in meaningful dialogue before putting on their ideological hats and condemning anyone and everything that doesn't fit with their a priori ideological axioms? That's all I want. For people to discuss/debate the FACTS and EVIDENCE when it comes to these divisive political and social issues from a relatively objective perspective.

We have at least Eddie, GO and I trying to doing that here, which is a small minority to be sure, but it's something. Anyone else care to stand for reasonable, respectful and honest dialogue about these topics? To leave their ideological garb at the door and come in with an intent to discuss in good faith? If so, please do.

I'm debating whether I want to waste my time here anymore. I enjoy writing, and RE has been kind to me to let me say anything I think, but at this point, I'm questioning whether I want to participate at all anymore.

My writing doesn't seem to really help anybody. Mostly it's entertainment for me, but it has given me a real Ambrose Bierce POV about the readership I get. I'm somewhere between him and H.L. Mencken in my assessment of the average American.

You can't fix stupid.

Everyone has an agenda.

Victims will hang on to their sacred shibboleths to their dying breath. Rationalization, justification and laying blame are the most common human behaviors.

Of the people who come here, the only ones I like talking to anymore are the hardcore preppers. and they don't need me at all. At this point  I just have a writing jones I need to wean myself off of.

Ashvin's Intellectual Darkness

Ashvin, please continue to "ignore" my "irrelevant" posts by POSTING a reply stating that you are, uh, simply insulting  me while studiously "ignoring" me.

YOU are the fine fellow that couldn't be bothered with reading my "behemoth" (your words!) article(s) several years ago, but here you are harping on people, as is your sophist wont, who "won't think deeply" or "bother to watch some video(s) you posted". THAT is textbook PROJECTION.

It is also a fallacious debating technique, but I'll let RE and Surly deal with your baseless complaints.

You have a track record, Ashvin, of NOT being objective on a plethora of issues. You have consistently sided with authoritarian (i.e. RIGHT WING = NeoFascist to Fascist) political and financial positions deleterious to the well being of the poor, minorities AND the average citizen in the USA of any color or ethnicty. You try to hide from it (as Surly noted) with some present guise of objectivity (see fallacious debating techniques), but it is generally accepted among people of average intelligence that if Ashvin walks and talks like a duck, (etc.). Most who post here are several points above average, so you will always have a difficult time playing your sophistic mind games in this forum.

As to your claim that I am lying, let us clear the air. YOU admire and support Peterson's "deep thinking" POV. THAT alone tells anyone with two brain cells two rub together that you and Peterson are birds of a political feather.

That doesn't mean you think alike in all areas, but, as Surly intimated, it produces a telling metaphorical odor. The "odor" has some characteristics that you can deny until the cows come home, but no one can take you seriously when you engage in said denials.

The tem "Politically Correct", when espoused, defended or originated by anyone (e.g. Jordan Peterson) is prima facie evidence of RACIST BIGOTRY. I am experienced hearing those too clever by a half ASSHOLES making the clever jokes and snide remarks about being "politically correct" in places I have worked. You KNOW THEM BY THEIR hateful, derisve, sarcastic, scorn filled FRUIT.   

In addition, Jordan Peterson does a lot of word twisting to get people to reject good government. Good government is what gave us Social Security AND Medicare. I stand by my previous statement that Jordan Peterson would DEFINITELY APPLAUD the elimination of these vital programs that HONOR the Lord Jesus Christ's teachings.

Thie following is a quote from an intelligent fellow who sees through Jordan Peterson's clever rhetoric.
Quote
Jordan Peterson: The social structure is corrupt and incomplete

Quote
Jimmy Owen

Social structures will NEVER be perfect, because they're complex and made up of people, and because they must balance competing but equally important values in an ever-changing world (e.g. freedom vs. security, rights vs. responsibilities, progress vs. stability, etc.) But social structures ARE necessary and valuable, and some are FAR better than others, so it's not axiomatic that you should tear them down.  American and Canadian societies, for example, are among the best, and most free EVER to have existed.  So, gain an honest understanding of their relative merits, and propose a BETTER ALTERNATIVE before you try to tear them down out of self-righteous indignation at the way you naively perceive things to be.

Proposing the DESTRUCTION of social structures is precisely what FASCISTS DO. ANYONE, like Jordan Peterson, wanting to take apart our social structures will enthusiastically support the elimination of social Security AND Medicare. You called me a liar, Ashvin. You are the liar.




Jordan Peterson is just one more large vocabulary stalking horse for FASCISM.

Quote
Proverbs 12:18 “There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.”

You and Peterson are among those that speaketh like the piercings of a sword. Have a nice day, Antinomian Heretic.

Who is Jordan Peterson? HINT: The Koch 🦕 Brothers fund him
« Reply #49 on: October 31, 2018, 02:48:01 PM »
Jordan Peterson is BOUGHT AND PAID FOR by the Koch Brothers

Who is Jordan Peterson 😈, the ‘alt-right’ darling of YouTube?

Brenden Gallagher— Apr 30 at 2:00AM | Last updated Apr 30 at 8:45AM

SNIPPET:

If you hang around intellectuals or academics long enough, one of them will make the joke that they wish they were conservative because there is a lot more money in it. Jordan Peterson is living proof of that.

The Koch Brothers and the Heritage Foundation are eager to fund and promote the brightest minds conservatism has to offer. They intend to use the free market language of the right, there is a high demand for “intellectuals” who will defend conservative ideas, but there is a very low supply.

So if you’re wondering how 55-year-old Canadian psychology professor Jordan B. Peterson became an overnight sensation, going from obscure academic to international bestseller lauded in the New York Times 👹 as “most influential public intellectual in the Western world right now,” you don’t have to look much further than that old academic joke.

Jordan Peterson is famous because in the era of the resurgent alt-right, the loose collection of conservatives that align with white supremacists, there are few intellectuals willing to align themselves with the movement. The alt-right is in need of intellectuals to justify their fascist worldview, and Peterson has been ready.

Agelbert NOTE: I repeat, Jordan Peterson is a stalking horse for FASCISM. He enthusiastically supports the Koch Brothers push to get Trump and his wreckng crew to eliminate Social Security and Medicare.

Ashvin, like Jordan Peterson, is also a Fascist Enabler, as well as a serial liar.

I read your reference, and I hereby pronounce you to be a Lying Sack Of Shit. There is absolutely not one shred of proof that this is true...AT ALL.

Yor are making shit up to fit a false narrative, probably because you know I won't take it lying down. No, actually, you are repeating reprehensible  lies you read elsewhere, because you don't have enough sense to pour piss out of a boot.

So put up or shut up.  Show me where Charlie Koch paid JP. The article is a slimy hit piece that just makes a few innuendos. It's pure spin.

I get it that the alt-right LIKES Jordan Peterson. I get that Marxist assholes (like you maybe) would love to paint him with the fascist label.

Unfortunately for you and them, JP has dozens of interviews and videos up that, if you are willing to watch them, tell you exactly who he is and what he believes. So...there is plenty of evidence out there to completely refute this bogus claim.

He's a hard working social scientist with excellent credentials who teaches good courses at a decent university. He wrote a best-selling book that is best selling because it gets bought by people who WANT to READ it. Like any writer hawking a book, he speaks in public all over the place, and it's true the right wing assholes think he's great.

So what?

You think you can come here and post flat out lies and get away with it now because Surly is on your side?

Au contraire. This will not stand.

I thought you were probably dead, since you stopped coming around. Are you off your meds or something? Get a fuckin' grip.

Here's a hint. Not everything posted on 4Channel or the Socialist Worker website happens to be fact based.

Take it down, or I will bury you so deep in facts you'll choke on 'em.

Take it down NOW.

I'm not fucking around here. If this is to be allowed to stand, I will leave and not come back.

Has the Diner turned into a site that allows people to freely post slander as long as it meets the criteria of having a commie slant?

Prove it or crawl back under your fuckin' rock. Show me the money.

You're an Admin.  Take it down yourself if you feel that strongly about it.  To be fair though if you do that, you should also take down all the JP Ass Kissing posts that have gone up in the last few days as well.

And what's with all the Threaten-to-Quit posts you are making these days?  It seems like everything ticks you off so much you gotta threaten to quit all the time.  I advise you take a chill pill or start drinking again.  Mellow out.

There is something about Peterson that everybody has an issue with.  But that's true with everyone else too.

But it's all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself


Agelbert goes off the deep end whenever he sees something he doesn't like.  Then he makes outrageous judgements. That is how his ride rolls.  Typically he will accuse people of being the exact opposite of what they tend towards.  In his mind he is like a fear aggressive dog that reacts to 'phoniness' even when it is not actually there.

To bad he can't check himself.  If I was thinking the Kocks paid Peterson off and could not produce any proof I think I would be in need of some serious mental help.

Agelbert's lie is pretty outrageous and has no amusement value at all.  Peterson himself is not amused by those who have tried to claim him as their own and has made statements to clarify he does not embrace alt-right politics.  His conservatism, if it can be called that and it really should not, comes from years of dealing with people with psychological issues and from hard scientific investigation.  Peterson challenges unfounded claims of all political persuasions but he is at is best when he avoids politics altogether.  His understanding of socialism is poor.  His understanding of people and their psychological needs is outstanding.

Perhaps all Agelberts posts need to be approved until he develops a rudimentary skill in checking out the facts his noggin comes up with before he spews.

Let me ask one simple question here - did nothing in AGs latest post about me violate your CoC? Nothing? If not, please explain why not. If so, please explain why he isn't getting so much as a warning. Thank you.

I read everything you post Eddie. Most I agree with, some require a bit of research to figure out what the hell you are talking about to figure out if I agree, that's good too. Its important for a skills junkie like me to appreciate the larger economical picture and learn to use it. I'm younger then most here I think. I'm too busy "Adapting" as C5 would call it to reply or engage most of the time.  I call it trying to get through this world socially and financially as the ground shifts around us and mostly turns to shit. I know many people like myself who don't even bother with online contributions. I actually mostly like this place but it has become clear that If you say ANYTHING out of line with some of the posters original spin they will use their seemingly endless amounts of free time to hound you and proceed to call it debate. If you don't spend the time countering endless angels on pins arguments they claim "victory". In actuality I was working to make money to pay for an ever more expensive society, feeding my kids, reading stories, doing homework, fixing something I have no money to replace, gardening because what you buy is expensive and toxic, cutting wood to heat the house because the climate is turning to shit and fossil fuels are expensive and are killing us, trying to take online courses to stay current in an industry moving at lightning speed while they tappety tap tapped away on the keyboard. 
I'm annoyed tonight

Eddie, we both know you are 100% right about AG and his disingenuous postings. He is blinded and possessed by radical liberal conspiracy ideology, which is the worst kind of ideology to be possessed by, so it's hard to say whether it's disingenuous or not.

Either way, I don't your suggestion to force him to take it down is the appropriate one. It's much better to let the misguided posters with no facts, evidence or coherent arguments to put their BS out in the open for all to see. It's hard for anyone to read AG's posts and come away thinking he is well-informed or knows what he's talking about on this topic - and that's a great thing for other readers. We want people like AG to bury their own credibility under the layers of muck they post. So I say you let him keep the post up and post even more about the Koch brothers funding JP if he wants - it's just more nails in the coffin of his credibility.

Jimmy Owen

Social structures will NEVER be perfect, because they're complex and made up of people, and because they must balance competing but equally important values in an ever-changing world (e.g. freedom vs. security, rights vs. responsibilities, progress vs. stability, etc.) But social structures ARE necessary and valuable, and some are FAR better than others, so it's not axiomatic that you should tear them down.  American and Canadian societies, for example, are among the best, and most free EVER to have existed.  So, gain an honest understanding of their relative merits, and propose a BETTER ALTERNATIVE before you try to tear them down out of self-righteous indignation at the way you naively perceive things to be.

Proposing the DESTRUCTION of social structures is precisely what FASCISTS DO. ANYONE, like Jordan Peterson, wanting to take apart our social structures will enthusiastically support the elimination of social Security AND Medicare. You called me a liar, Ashvin. You are the liar.

In your confused and elderly state, I believe you may have actually quoted Peterson on social structures - the part about "American and Canadian societies, for example, are among the best and most free EVER to have existed" is exactly something he would say and support. Peterson is absolutely AGAINST tearing down Western culture or social structures - which is exactly what the postmodern, neomarxist radical left wants to do.

Now will AG have the courage to admit he was DEAD WRONG about this and also the Koch funding thing? I highly doubt it. And if you aren't willing to confront your OBVIOUS intellectual mistakes when they are pointed out to you by two different people, and instead you hold fast to those debunked arguments, then you are no better than someone who was LYING in the first place.

Perhaps all Agelberts posts need to be approved until he develops a rudimentary skill in checking out the facts his noggin comes up with before he spews.

It's not only that he does not embrace alt-right politics - the true alt-right groups in our society, i.e. ethno-nationalists and white supremacists, have outright attacked Jordan Peterson and show no love for him whatsoever.

I would question the idea that "his understanding of socialism is poor", since he literally spent decades investigating the catastrophes of the 20th century, including those of the Soviet Union and Maoist China among other places. I think he has a GREAT understanding, and even empathy, towards socialism, which is why he is able to critique it so well. He just doesn't go into very fine historial detail often, which is not the same as him not being aware of those fine historical details.

Other than that, agree with you completely KD!

I'm not fucking around here. If this is to be allowed to stand, I will leave and not come back.

You're an Admin.  Take it down yourself if you feel that strongly about it.  To be fair though if you do that, you should also take down all the JP Ass Kissing posts that have gone up in the last few days as well.

And what's with all the Threaten-to-Quit posts you are making these days?  It seems like everything ticks you off so much you gotta threaten to quit all the time.  I advise you take a chill pill or start drinking again.  Mellow out.

Let me ask one simple question here - did nothing in AGs latest post about me violate your CoC? Nothing? If not, please explain why not. If so, please explain why he isn't getting so much as a warning. Thank you.

AG did get a Warning from Eddie.  He's an Admin.  A warning from me was unnecessary.
