    Jordan Peterson to Launch Anti-Censorship Site Thinkspot

    This August, Jordan Peterson (yes, the psychiatrist) will launch what he calls "an intellectual playground for censorship-free discourse". It's possible to join the beta waitlist here.

    Via Newsbusters:

    Peterson discussed Thinkspot with podcaster Joe Rogan on June 9, emphasizing a radically pro-free speech Terms of Service. He described that freedom as the "central" aspect saying, "once you're on our platform we won't take you down unless we’re ordered to by a US court of law."

    [---]

    The only other major rule on comments he mentioned was that they need to be thoughtful. Rather than suggesting that some opinions are "off limits," Peterson said they will have a minimum required length so one has to put thought into what they write.
    Not a terrible idea; new social media platforms to break the monopoly of digital communication is all good in my book.

    He used to work for the UN, it's a trap. There are already other alternatives.

    A trap for whom? For what?

    There are already other alternatives.
    And yet another available alternative is bad why?

    Something to be cautious about, that's all. I don't think he's too bad, he's interesting as a Jungian psychologist, but considering he outright refuses to share any platform or in any way debate with those he considers "white nationalists" makes his claim to be supporting free speech and open debate utterly absurd. I think it probably is a trap. It wouldn't surprise me at all if all along he's just been working as a UN mole to sabotage the Right and distract and lure conservatives.

    Peterson also continually dismisses the Jewish Question - he even acknowledges the observations made about jews in power, but instead of seeing this disproportionate amount of power, wealth and influence as a problem, he says "we should be glad about this, because it must mean they're more intelligent". When it comes down to the "post-modernist" takeover of academia, though, it's different - maybe the post-modernists and marxists are so prominent in academia because they're more intelligent and got there by "natural selection"?... He's such a hypocrite, and so intellectually dishonest. I don't think he can be trusted at all.

    VK is probably monitored quite closely by the Russian government but I'd still trust that as an alternative sooner than I would trust Peterson's site.

    But how does a social media platform sabotage the Right if it provides them with that platform?

    Where exactly did he say that, pray tell?
