    A very thoughtful, fiercely brave and honest man.

    He is of course the target of endless attacks from statist media types. He refutes their adhomin crap, with reason, facts, genuine warmth and penetrating insights into what it means to be human.

    He will undoubtedly be destroyed in the end.

    He's more smarter than most of us here, that's for sure!

    I like to think of myself as having an excellent mind, but I feel completely outclassed by Jordan.

    Same. When I watch him articulate thoughts it is clear to me he is operating at a higher altitude than I. There are a number of people where that has been obvious to me. Steve Jobs, Horst Schulze, Sheryl Sandberg to name a few.

    He sounds pretty broken compared to the past. Glad to hear he's on the mend. A really good egg.

    Welcome home my friend, I hope he considers moving his youtube channel to another platform like *****ute. Content like his is being taking down at a rate I have never seen.

    Outclassed in his area but I would expect you outclass him in EE.

    I like Jordan but I was very surprised he allowed benzos to eat him like that. I have taken them a few times for anxiety and I could tell immediately they are nothing to mess with. He was also dealing with what he believed was the impending death of his wife though so that likely had something to do with it.

    He fell down the deep dark hole of rubber-stamp pharmacology. It's telling that he had to go to Russia to get detox.

    He is a Canadian conservative professor who hit the big time on the internet a few years ago then became sick and vanished.

    Ironically if he had stayed in the public eye he would have been canceled by YouTube and others by now in the massive Conservatives purge. For example they purged that other mild-mannered Canadian Stefan Molyneux who is a smart man but not on a Jordan Peterson level.

    I wish him luck but if he gets back up to speed he will be purged too.

    "I've been in Connecticut, Toronto, Belgrade, and Moscow" (getting psych treatment).

    That is an awfully unusual itinerary for someone trying to kick benzos. Do you think that professor Peterson is trying to tell us something, without saying it?

    Thanks for posting that. I haven't "followed" him but would sometimes watch his content. I had no clue he went through all that. Apparently, even still.

    I'm hopeful that he will fully recover.

    That doesn't take much.

    Junkie is heroin addict, he was addicted to benzodiazapenes. The big difference is that the guy offering you the first hit is from a doctor and it is legal.

    He is my sons favorite. He’s a real smart And well educated kid, unlike his knuckle dragging Neanderthal father.
