Why Can't People Hear What Jordan Peterson Is Actually Saying? [www.theatlantic.com] by quantum9soul in JordanPeterson

Skewed outcomes are sometimes associated with skewed processes. Blind auditions to symphony orchestras led to more woman hires, people with foreign names have their "corporate cultural fit" questioned a lot more than people with native names.

Then there are the cases where interest from certain groups is simply lacking.

Anyone else smelling a false flag campaign in the "target harassment" of Cathy Newman? by LordXerces in JordanPeterson

It’s guilt by association. Pepe is spread as alt-right “culture” while being harmless. It’s both innocent and insidious. We live in an attention economy, so anything that funnels in people to an uncritical exposure to your ideas is a win. Kek and Kekistan is the next step.

Kotaku in action is somewhere 75% complaining about the progressive left. Rare pepes are made and shared by mostly the same people.

A virus just wiped out 99.999% of the worlds population. You are one of the 72,000 people that are immune. Whats your post apocalypse strategy? by [deleted] in AskReddit

[–]helm 9 points10 points  (0 children)

72k people would likely have enough know-how combined that they could figure out how to operate small production

For a long time, scavenging packaged but never used stuff would be the way to go. If death of humanity was quick (say, 1 year), there would be so much stuff around that clever scavenging would be superior to all other strategies. Hopefully, people wouldn't fight over scraps, but using force has been successful before ....

Also, a major issue is rebuilding a society where all the easy to access materials (fossil fuels, ores, rare earth metals, etc.) have already been used.

A lot of it could be recycled from scraps. If population really dropped to <100,000, the amount of oil already around would last a long time.

The sentence on the Guardian says “the alt-right hates and mocks him [Jordan B Peterson]. Huh? One sentence in it stopped making sense. And the overlap of kotakuinaction and the alt-right is 50-75%, if you exclude the apolitical people.

But wasn’t the writing from -62? Anyway, could have been sloppy reporting.

The average Russian is apolitical, and Kremlin likes it that way

It's been a thing for about a year. I didn't read about it on reddit first. But the last time this was distributed was in 1962.

Yeah, Russia will not be mentioned in the leaflet that hasn't been distributed yet.

What I heard about his "vegetarianism" was that he had dietary restrictions because of medical issues and that his doctors tried to help him by forbidding him from eating certain things.

That’s interesting, but very hard to compare, and offers no guarantee to the individual. Who would want their health insurance run by their local HOA?

  1. I don't understand how you think I'm equating agorianism with communism. I'm mainly stating that post-scarcity society seems no farther away than post-state society.

  2. You still have no solution for sharing, and propose a winner-takes-all system.

Russians are, in general, more self-reliant. Specialization is degeneration to some.

There's little evidence that Peterson supports the abolishment of the state. That's in your head.

The state absolutely constitutes a (partially) forced hierarchy, but replacing it is a monumental task. What you are proposing is again as far away as communistic utopia. Cryptocurrencies today are far less stable than national currencies. There's no telling when their value will stabilize. If you've listened to the JP lectures on the Bible, you'd understand that extreme caution should be taken when knocking over the foundation of order.

I presume libertarians have no qualms about using cryptocurrencies to avoid paying taxes while keeping the fruits for themselves. Taxation is forced sharing. How do you propose sharing would work without taxation?

Your argument is as removed from reality as is communism. All agrarian societies are divided into a private sphere and a public sphere, where the public sphere by necessity needs resources gathered in the private sphere. The modern way of taking resources from the private to the public is taxation. The questions lies in the level of taxation and in which ways the state is allowed to distribute resources back to the private sphere. This isn’t communism, and it isn’t winners take all.

Think of exercise like this:

Humans are animals that need to run/exercise, but inherently hate it. Exercise is suffering (although it shouldn't be painful), and necessary suffering. Once you get past that, you may be able to enjoy it more.

Neuroscientists call for more comprehensive view of how brain forms memories by Username-_Ely in science

This is a somewhat old (slightly older than 6 months) "perspective", and doesn't present the result of a single study or meta-study. Instead, it's a literature review.

AI progress has often been measured by the ability to defeat humans in zero-sum encounters (e.g. Chess or Go). Less attention has been given to human–machine cooperation. Scientists develop an algorithm that can cooperate with people and other algorithms at levels that rival human cooperation. by mvea in science

[–]helm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Of particular note, cheap talk (i.e., costless, non-binding signals) has been shown to lead to greater human cooperation in repeated interactions

Also called "small talk". Think about that for a second, before you discard small talk as useless.
