So what's his best one, gents?
I think the problem you may be having is that you could be coming too late into his catalogue, and the videos you have seen are more on the metaphysical and abstract side of what he has put out there. I enjoy these personally because I think he's a great speaker and puts across his opinions well - but they are essentially opinions and go off on tangents, without a specific basis in science or empirical evidence. They are a lot more subjective and may not be to your taste.

But a lot of his University lectures are very much science based psychology, with his own spin. This series, for example, delves a lot more into legitimate psychological discussion based on facts and evidence that have been studied so far:

I'll definitely check that out. The biggest issue I have with him is the style you describe since he makes an assertion and spends no time validating it but instead uses it as a jumping off point for his opinions. It appears that people consider this to be a way of being extra convincing. He seems to get a lot of criticism for his (tame af) conservatism, but that's not really an issue for me tbh. Based on bit of the Joe Rogan interview I saw with him, he gets a lot of respect from people who think that being silenced means what was being said is really important too. I saw a lot of videos with titles like "Jordan Peterson explains why the left is an evil plague that will murder your babies" but I figure that those reflect the uploader more than him. If that does reflect him, it kind of affirms my opinion that he's a panderer of the highest order.

Will report back this evening after watching the philosophy video, that's a very interesting and expansive topic in the field

He's not right wing at all, but I too have seen the same "JP destroys the left" type videos, as if he's on the right. He's basically just anti-totalitarianism. One of his recent videos pointed out how bad the latest NRA video is, for example. I don't disagree with him (check it out, it's hilariously bad) and have found him to be completely unbiased when it comes to political ideologies. If anything he's probably the type of person who would reluctantly vote Democrat.

Either way, my like/love of his work comes more from his fact based psychological talks, even if I do enjoy his theories on metaphysical concepts etc.

There was some mention of Bill C-16 in the US Election Day thread, but it's probably easier to post this here:

This is a meeting between teaching assistant Lindsay Shepherd and Wilfrid Laurier University representatives. Shepherd was called in for violating the school's Gendered and Sexual Violence policy by screening a few minutes of a TVOntario program which questioned the use of gender-neutral pronouns.

JP's response.

JP's response.
You know, I don’t share your conservative views but **** like that makes it easy to see why someone would want to distance themselves from the left.

Parts of the left make up things that are so ridiculous it’s sad to dignify them with a response. And then they persecute you for not playing along.

People who don’t understand how dangerous that behavior can be should read about China’s Cultural Revolution.

I'm not a conservative, I am just right-wing economically. Whilst I may think some things work better for people in general, I don't wanna tell people what to do with their lives.

The two sides (economics and social) are tied in together. For example, I would be an open borders advocate if the economy was completely run by individuals making decisions as opposed to the government.

That's the problem with party politics. You have to kowtow to the doctrine of the party platform even if you don't agree with parts of it. Jefferson was right when he was against the concept of political parties. You really can't vote your conscience and that's why we're in the mess we're in.

you don't understand it, but what you want is private tyranny over public tyranny

so oligarchy over democracy

also Jordan Peterson has some incredibly stupid opinions
