Give Him A Warm Welcome Dr.
Jordan B Peterson thank you thank you very much it’s very nice to be here and to see you all come out to spend a couple of hours thinking about difficult things. There seems to be an appetite for that which is really something so let’s exploit it so I started working on the ideas that I outlined in 12 rules for life well a long time ago and really started when I was about 13. I was a junior high school student and I met this librarian who’s kind of an eccentric person very well-educated person and she we I used to hang around with my delinquent friends in the library, which tells you how eccentric. The librarian was because that’s not normally the place where the delinquent kids hang out.
You Know But She Talked To Us Like
we were adults and that was a word What would you call it a refreshing that was a refreshing experience and she knew that I’d like to read and she started giving me real books. She gave me one day in the life of Ivan Denisovich, which was the first book published by Alexander Solzhenitsyn in the Soviet Union. It’s a story about the day of a political prisoner in a in a work camp and brave New world and 1984 an animal farm and in Rands books, which was quite interesting because she was the wife of our Member of Parliament, who was the only member of the Opposition in our province, and he was a socialist. An UK New Democratic Party leader as a matter of fact and but despite that she gave me an rands books because she thought that. I should be exposed to the other side of the argument So I read Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead and well.
She Was The First Person Who
helped me discover literature. Let’s say and well. At the same time I got interested in what had happened in Nazi Germany and I wrote an essay about that when I was about 13 or 14 about Auschwitz and what had happened there and I never read that really never left my mind. I would say I think I read Victor Frankel’s Man’s search for meaning at that point, which is a book. I would highly recommend.
I Have A Reading List On My
website by the way at Jordan B Peterson com and so. There was a variety of books there that have really influenced me and and I put them up for other people’s use anyways. I never what what I. learned about our Woodson about Nazi Germany never really left my mind and because I couldn’t understand how people could act that way how they could not only be possessed by an ideology. To the degree that the Germans were a very civilized country.
Germany, You Know So Was I Suppose
even a more spectacular shock that something so catastrophic happened there there wasn’t just the ideological possession. It was the cruelty and the gratuitous cruelty in the service of that ideological possession that I couldn’t understand it didn’t I couldn’t establish a relationship between my own being and and those patterns of action and as I got older that concern transformed itself into an obsession. I would say not so much with what had happened in Nazi Germany, but with I think what happened what was happening as a consequence of the collectivist philosophy per se which you might. think of something that manifested itself both on the right in Nazi Germany and then on the left in all the multitudinous and catastrophic communist regimes that characterized the bulk of the 20th century and they’re insane murderous Ness and that probably culminated for me in the 1970s when I read Alexander Solzhenitsyn ‘s Gulag Archipelago Go, which is another book that everyone should read because in some sense it might be the defining document of the 20th century and the fact that everyone in the West isn’t familiar with that book is actually a signal of our catastrophic moral failing. I would say I started writing this book called maps of meaning in about 1985.
Although I Had Been Working On Variants Of
it before that and what I was trying to understand was maybe the psychological motivations for the Cold War something like that many of you are. Old enough to remember what it was like in the 1980s we just went and visited the house in in wreck Javac where Gorbachev and Reagan met which was quite something to see and when they decided they were going to bring at least some of the insanity to a relative halt thank God. The eighties were a very contentious time. You know the Cold War sort of peeked into at two times. The peaked in 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis I don’t know if you know this but I was visited a nuclear missile site in in Arizona about ten years ago.
It Was A Decommissioned Missile Site.
Intercontinental ballistic missile. Intercontinental ballistic missile is a very large rockets and can go halfway around the world and it’s ballistic which means it has the same function as a bullet and the bullet is ballistic because once you fire. It it’s gone You don’t control it after it it leaves so once you launch a ballistic missile It’s launched there’s no calling it back and they told us they did a simulation launch which is very eerie thing and so to launch a nuclear missile is a big console that sort of looks like the Star Trek control control module. Let’s say and one person stands here and one person stands about 20 feet away.
Each Have A Key Around Their Neck, And
they put the key in the lock simultaneously and then turn it for ten seconds and at the end of ten seconds. The missile is gone and that’s that and they both have their keys in the lock. In 1962 so and we came close again in 1984 when I don’t know if you know this but a Soviet missile detection system signaled the launch of. four or five missiles from North America and a single Russian soldier decided that it was a false alarm and refused to push the button that would have resulted in major retaliation. He just died about a year ago.
You Can Read About Him On
Wikipedia Anyways I read Solzhenitsyn in 1970s and and that made me me even I would say more obsessed with what was happening in in on the world stage. I was trying to understand why it was that the systems of belief that we inhabited let’s say one typifying the Soviet Union and in similar States Maoist China North Korea wonderful places like that versus the West we each had our own way of construing the world. The ways of construing the world were set at odds with one another and the fact that they were set at odds with one another appeared to be. So significant that we’d armed ourselves with 50,000 Hydra hydrogen bombs on each side something like that I don’t know how much you know about a hydrogen bomb. You know you know about atomic bombs.
You Know That A Hydrogen Bomb Has An
atomic bomb for the trigger right so so like the atom bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima that was something that was a fission bomb not standard atomic bomb. The first generation but hydrogen bomb is incontestably more powerful than that and we were producing them in the tens of thousands. It’s not like we don’t have any now but it was really some insanity in the 1980s and people seem to have a very itchy trigger finger. So I was very confused about this in two ways one and from a psychological perspective because by that time I did study just to study psychology instead of. Political science, which was my original major I I get I got disenchanted with political science because I didn’t believe that people were fundamentally motivated by economic issues.
I Still Dont Believe That Thats True
they’re motivated by whatever they’re motivated by it can’t be captured by economics not precisely it’s very curious about what it was that was so important about a belief system that people would risk putting the entire planet to the torch to ensure that their particular mode of construing the world prevailed was an interesting psychological problem. What was so important about belief system that would justify destroying everything that’s here risking destroying everything because that was certainly the situation we put ourselves in and more to the point I guess or equally to the point I was interested in two other things. One was were these differences in belief systems just arbitrary, and that’s. Actually a postmodern question? I didn’t know that at the time no because you might say the post modernists do say there’s a very large number of ways of interpreting the world and it isn’t obvious how you determine which of those ways are correct and so perhaps you can’t determine that any of them are correct and then as a consequence of your inability to determine if any of them are correct. Then you have to turn to something like power dispute to establish which interpretation is going to take precedence.
- read solzhenitsyn 1970s
- alexander solzhenitsyn soviet union story
- life ivan denisovich book published
- student met librarian kind eccentric
- eccentric librarian normally place delinquent
I Would Say In A Nutshell Thats
a post-modernist theory now that’s tainted to some degree with Marxist preconceptions, but we won’t get into that but that’s basically the idea and it’s an idea with a certain amount of justification. There is a very large number of ways of interpreting the world and it isn’t obvious which. way or ways are right or why they’re right? So it’s a complicated problem and so I was curious is like was this merely a difference of opinion. The West had a certain set of axioms that it was acting out in the world and there. Soviet bloc and the rest of the Communist countries had another set of axioms and they were both arbitrary and it was a matter of power or was there something deeper at stake so that was question number two question number three was was there an alternative to brutal combat.
Was There An Alternative Way Of Solving
the dispute to brutal group combat something like that and so because I always believed that if you understood a problem that you could solve it in fact that if yes. If when you analyze the problem, a solution didn’t emerge from the analysis, then you actually. didn’t understand the problem and so I thought if I delved into the problem deeply enough, then maybe I could figure out what might constitute a solution assuming there was such a thing because I couldn’t. I knew after writing a fair bit of it that we were that there was a real problem because you can get belief systems that are locked in combat and then obviously the terrible consequence of that is the combat. But then I also knew and this was probably more from reading Nietzsche than anything else that if your belief system collapses, you might say well.
I Dont Want To Fight With You About
whose belief system is correct. I’ll just let my mind go but the problem is if you let your belief system go. Then you’re swamped by nihilism and hopelessness and and that’s not helpful first of all it’s very it’s. not helpful psychologically because it produces motional pain and anxiety and maybe at unbearable levels.
You Cant Have A Pointless Life.
It’s it’s it’s it’s a suffering a pointless life is pointless suffering and people can’t sustain that without becoming demoralized that’s only where they start demoralized bitter, cruel, resentful angry hostile murderous genocide alike. All those things follow one from.
