Exactly, his 'rebel' things sound okay but his solutions are basically: accept the system, you can only be happy if you're part of the system, system is good.

I became interested because he was described as giving value to myths, which is basic Gnosticism and talking about Jung. But the way he goes about it and the 'conclusions' he reach are paradoxical with the practice he claims to use to reach them.

He is like a politician, instead of fixing or destroying the machine he just wants to oil it up so the kinks aren't as noticeable.

I myself am conflicted with fixing or destroying because 'The Industrial revolution' is out of pandora's box and will only get back in if most of humanity is destroyed by a worldwide catastrophic event(s) (think dinosaur extinction level) {aka destroying the system}. And Fixing is as hard as debugging, only with a lot of different languages, cultures and different outlooks(aka design plans). Kind of like when we all go about implementing our utopian view on Saidit by editing the same files simultaneously.

Yes, JP is the false rebellion he talks about.

Well Ted was talking about all people, the non-domesticated side of JP is just his rebel impulse.

But the/a true rebellion against the system he doesn't preach, he is preaching against changes he finds not correct to the system, but still fully endorsing the system.

Most offensive is that this is the reason I keep my 2006-build(yeah graphics card upgraded in 2014, but cheap ass) updated but only in the end of the month. After check for this kinda sh*t. I am afraid of mah games, but Steam Play is shaping up so I might stop caring....

You have been funnied because my 'up-bulbed' is much, much more and also way cooler, but you made me giggle with the knowlegde that people think light-bulbs emit white light.

Edit: wait... I see, it's white in the icon... hmmm, still though... Mine's better :p

because he doesn't state his personal views very often.

So all his crying (just search Jordan Peterson Crying) is staged? (His emotional outbursts are something he's famed and loved for IIRC, best known and made it into a lot of Kermit memes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvBm0ZUfe7I)

Imagine if women quit wearing makeup to work, or all men started wearing makeup, etc. Makeup or not, the workplace social environment will be impacted.

Maybe a bad example because both cases have been happening for ages (In western society and still is). It wasn't that long ago that the elite men wore makeup (also, almost every man on TV wears make up 'because you have to look pretty in the unnatural light'). And pretty much only TV (or p*rn) brainwashed people think of make-up being 'natural' for women. (but maybe you mean mascara, that's a bit more general accepted {the eyes/brow stuff} as 'basic women stuff' though certain hair-colors (black and red) don't use it too often in the wild). But this can all be a culture difference

But more on topic and JP, the good part of him is his 'calling out' problems, excesses and whatever you call it. Though his solutions are founded in what Ted describes as the machine/system. So on the one hand he 'rebels' by calling out thing 'the status quo' misses/ignores or even endorses. But he himself so much system he can't really rebel so with long talks basically says to embrace the system (more specifically the system he grew up in and he has spun his tales around).

It's not perse a declassification of Jordan (I would happily believe and take it already as fact he's a good psychiatrist), but viewed in the Ted perspective he is this false rebellion. To put it blunt: Peterson does not take into account the tremendous and devastating 'Industry' and is fine with how society acts with it and sets people up (helps) them to integrate into this abomination of a system.

EDIT: did I already mention Ted was a bit of a radical fanatic? ;)

DS9 is decent, maybe try an episode guide so you only watch the main arc. TOS is pretty meh, was so underwhelming watching it after having it hyped by all Trekkies as the best.
