First there was Cassie Jaye and her documentary the Red Pill.

Now Jordan B Peterson has emerged from academia to become the latest sensation, boost by the interview by Cathy Newman.

What is significant but being missed if that Cassie Jaye when she undertook her research into MRA's is that she was told that this is a career killer.

Peterson is extremely aware that it all can go very wrong in an instance.

<i>I have been walking a very thin tightrope. I only have to say one thing, in all the things that I have said since September, and I have come close!

<i>I think itís unlikely that it will continue in a positive direction but you never know,Ē he says, pausing. ďItís too much, eh? Itís been too much for a long time. But so far so good and Iíll ride it out as long as I can. Iím surfing a hundred-foot wave and generally what happens if you do that is you drown.Ē

A fad.

Peterson fits the social media mind set of instant gratification.

(That is the 100 foot wave).

Is he a positive influence? Yes.

Why?

He focuses on questioning our world around us.

Will he remain just another media sensation?

Yes, until the next one comes along.

The putried fruit of Planned Parenthood should convince any rational unbigotted person that the outcomes of feminism and sick narratives like those pushed by the abc is plain evil.

Is it a fad, or is the tide turning?

I guess only time will tell.

Peterson is a clever man, and a conservative - what a nice change. Of course he is going to be rubbished by the Left. But, as dd said, he will run his course and someone else will come along. I did enjoy watching him make mincemeat of Newman, though.

Jordan Peterson on the #metoo movement.

What a shame there is not a transcript of this discussion.
