There is no glory in punching a cringing old hunchback in the face, but if someone were to go for it, neither there would there be any shame. He constantly asks for it when he gripes about not being able to use violence to resolve conflicts with women.

It might well only be a matter of time before the legions of anon target him.

Pankaj Mishra wrote a a highly critical piece on JP in the New York Review of Books http://www.nybooks.com/daily/2018/03/19 ... mysticism/

Jordan Peterson's sputtering response on twitter (purposefully or not) misunderstood Mishra's criticism and JP threatened to sock Mishra in the jaw or some such.

Now, a few things about this.

1-As far as I know, there have been quite a few highly critical reviews of 12 Rules , but the only person Peterson threatened with violence is Mishra. Hard not read that as JP's offense that the subaltern dared to talk back to him.

2-It should go without saying that a supposed champion of free speech threatening violence to those who disagree with him is a tad inconsistent. (This also applies to Peterson suing a university because a couple of people compared him to Hitler.)

3-Mishra, for his part, dismissed Peterson's threat, saying among other things that he was surprised that a man who spends so much time telling his followers to toughen up was so fragile. But, geez, I kind of wish someone would take Peterson up on the offer. He's about as physically imposing as newly hatched moth. Imagine the hilarity of a 90 year old Noam Chomsky pummeling tough-guy Jordan Peterson.

It's a shame that celebrity deathmatch isn't still going (R.I.P 2007).

I've been living such a sheltered existence that I didn't know who this guy was until a couple months ago. I would like to go back to living in my cave, please.

I saw a YT clip where talks about the music he likes. Says he loves the Arcade Fire and Tom Waits and calls Waits a "total genius" or something. :)
