    The Rise of Jordan Peterson is on netflix. I am about an hour into it. Seems like a pretty even handed documentary.

    I've always been a big fan, it's sad to see what he's going through.

    Sometimes it seems like some people are just too smart for their own good. Gives credence to the phrase "ignorance is bliss".

    Big Pharma sure has made a mess of many people with their drugs. But they are making billions of dollars and have doctors prescribing their drugs to anyone who has anxiety. It's a money making racket so big that it can't be stopped.

    An absolutely brilliant man...who admits that he is also very human. I love listening to him shut down some of the whackos out there with reason, logic, and a certain amount of humor. He is the epitome of the person who you can have an intelligent conversation with. He has brought critical thinking to a much higher level. Well worth listening to.

    He is brilliant and one of the few I can listen too. He seemed to have it all together and find it very strange he blindly took those drugs. Benzodiazepine is highly addictive and his description of detox is very scary. I won't judge, I've never been in a position that I needed any relief from these type drugs....I hope he can move on, I can tell from this video he is not himself...
