What stood out for me in the above video is one sentence that pretty much seems to sum up the real reason some people, including Mate I'm afraid, think of Peterson as an "angry and aggressive person":[...] Why Dr. Gabor Maté disagrees with Dr. Jordan Peterson on his teachings of responsibilities
Sep 24, 2018
Basically Mates reasoning is based on a gut feeling the same way that Trump derangement syndrome people feel it in their guts. Mate and others who see Peterson similarly, should ask themselves why "their gut" is telling them something like this and what this has to do with reality. They should further question their gut feelings and not blindly trust them, since there is a good likelihood that something quite different is creating that gut feeling. Like anger, envy and a not well integrated personality for example. Mate of all people should know that trusting your gut is a very tricky thing, especially if one has many unresolved and not consciously recognized issues that are for example explained in the book "the criminal mind".[explaining Peterson subtext of quote "a kind of anger in him", "a kind of disdain in him for people who challenge the social structure", "there is an attacking energy in him", "he is always seeing conspiracies of Marxist intellectuals who are out to get him"] ...that's the subtext that I pick upon [that Peterson has] and I can't proof that , but on a gut level, I really, really see it....
Mate should really get up to speed on a number of things before passing judgment on anyone.
