I believe many of you know him as the highly controversial, media-speaking psychology-professor at the University of Toronto, Canada – who turned viral overnight due to his public criticism on gender-pronouns and the compelling of free speech. But I know him as the greatest influential philosopher of the 21st century. Not only has he helped countless young men from committing suicide – but he has also actively been teaching women how to negotiate a higher salary. I remember when I first saw a video of Jordan Peterson. He told you to clean up your room, both literally and metaphorically. He said;
“If you can’t even clean up your room, who the hell are you to give advice to the world?”
I was stunned. Finally, there was someone who was honest enough to speak up about the harshness of basic human existence. He doesn’t give you advice on a fine silver plate. He slaps you in the face with it. But it’s better that way because we need to hear when we’re doing things wrong. We need to hear how to get out of this mess – how to live one’s life in the best possible way – how to not fall into laziness, social propaganda and/or other things that will just slow us down and build up a zillion of regrets for our future “old self”. You don’t have to agree with him politically. Just watch his videos, and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
(what do you think about Jordan Peterson and his philosophy?)
