    Under Mao women were prevented from wearing makeup and an entire generation didn't know what it was. But when Mao was gone and cosmetics were again available they couldn't buy or wear enough of them.

    Like some of the points Mr. Peterson makes.
    Unfortunately Mr. Peterson's position ist compromised since he is on a purely meat baced diet, justifiable because of his and his dauters peculiar health issues.
    Due to this fact his moral compass is wired to convince himself that climate change is not real and does not adress the sustainability issues of consuming animal products to solve the possibility of future over population. Sad because he is quite a smart man.

    1:08:34 "I'm not hearing what you think. I'm hearing how you're able to represent the ideology you were taught. And it's not that interesting because I don't know anything about you. I could replace you with someone else who thinks the same way. And that means, you are not here. It's not pleasant." That sumps up much nicely much of the public discourse these days. This "interview" should be shown to all journalism students as an example of how NOT to conduct an interview.

    What Dr.Peterson doesn't understand is that in India or China or Egypt that a man doesn't have to be competent in order to boss around a woman. He only has to be a man. Go to those places and see for yourself.

    I thought Peterson was pretty combative in this one. He straw manned her quite a bit. Yes indeed.
    He made a lot of cheeky remarks about women and until the mid point ended he kept making shitty remarks and blatantly told her he was strawmanning her. But I think he may haveDone it in the way that guys do to get closer to each other they get into a fight and then they can talk more genuinely... that was a mental scrap. maybe. The tone got a lot better after that.
    Still, a great interview. I enjoyed the real ness of this one.

    Well, seems like men will need to take back the advantage of this patriarchal tyranny because apparently women, as the direct beneficiary of it, are doing way better than they were in 1919, less than 100 years ago, almost yesterday. But still, there is no woman capable of having a logical argument against Peterson's dialethic.

    I have notice that at the start of most of these "interviews" they start by poisoning the well, trying to make a false connect to an negative extremist view of point or group. "How much responsibility do you feel you have particularly to the alt-right." This is just a pathetic attempt to demonize the person and their ideas before you have a chance to decide for yourself if you agree or not with their ideas. (( lobster man bad, trust us. ))

    "women are a majority in 2/3 college courses in the US" I recall a statistic coming out of the USSR in somewhere around the mid to late 80's regarding the demographics of engineering graduates having heavily skewed female. That was a result not of demonstrated better engineering aptitude but rather as result of willingness to conform to the rules. Women simply got better grades on average. The leadership saw this as an opportunity to effectively double the number of engineers, which perhaps they did achieve, but what they apparently did not anticipate was that the practical and effective skills of those degreed engineers dropping. They put all their attention to turning out more female engineers, and in the process changed the way that engineering was taught, alienating many male students in the process. Ask the former leadership of the USSR how that turned out.
    Pointing that out is by no means an attack on women, nor a detraction from their value and beneficial and necessary contributions to a healthy society in the future, nor should it be taken to mean that no woman is capable of being a successful engineer. My intention is to reiterate that there really is a difference between women and men, and we should venture to make the best use of all the natural talents we posses.
    Simple truth; If based solely on natural talents the ratio of engineers will be vastly male as will frame carpenters and concrete finishers, they are typically better suited for those jobs.
    BTW I have a distant cousin, female, who is a concrete finisher and by all accounts good at it. I only saw her one time and it was while she was at work and her performance was indistinguishable from the males on the crew. The crew was employed by my Father's cousin and the female finisher was his granddaughter. I worked for him for a brief period as a teenager and let me tell you that is as hard a physical job as there is.

    The journalist is the most anti-scientists or not seriously, that one can find.

    "Western society is the least tyrannical society" - the Iraqis butchered by the millions would like to disagree. The Syrians pawns offered at the alter of Russia-West animosity would like to disagree if they are still breathing. Underline: I am not saying that India/China would be better or better now. I am just saying there is no basis for saying Least tyrannical society. It just feels that way because of the insulation provided by dogma.

    1:02:50 This should be read out loud in divorce courts before hearings even begin to destroy the myth that men don't care about their kids and they are better in the sole custody of the mother. There are PARENTS; both male and female and they love their kids equally. Why do most women initiate divorce in a failed marriage? ..because they know the legal outcome will heavily favour them! Not because men are bad to be married to and are incompetent to look after their own children! The insinuation that the virtue of motherhood is a catch-all is frankly insulting.

    He says that competence is the only thing that brings about dominance. This is not true. Trump is president because of father's wealth. (Underline: I didn't say anything else about Trump, just that he is president because of his father's wealth) That is the part that Dr.Peterson is not acknowledging. He has a very high verbal IQ and consequently charisma. But is unconsciously biased towards systems that promote privilege-dominance while saying he is only for competence-dominance. Everybody is for competence-dominance, it is privilege-dominance that everyone (librards) are worried about. He can't be made to see his bias because of the insulation provided by his charisma (his people) and his verbal IQ.
