Jordan Peterson Announces Debate with Slavoj Zizek by Mnemonic in Philosophy

[–]Mnemonic[S] 2 insightful - 2 funny2 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 2 funny -  (0 children)

Slavoj would wreck JP on his charlatanism considering words like postmodern, marxism, capitalism and wisdom alone. But I kinda hope JP doesn't get too clamped down on his 'below-highschool level'-knowlegde about history, economics and philosophy and doesn't get anal about words like he did on his first Sam Harris podcast. I would like them to go after sniff As Peterson likes to cough, snifff call it, capitol T, truth.

Talking about Slavoj's mugshot (In all honesty he just looks like a normal person): Does Peterson have 'tv-makeup' on in this vid?

1984 vs. Blade Runner vs. Star Trek by EndlessSunflowers in WayOfTheBern

Star Trek Enterprise deals with the transitional period, political infighting (TNG also has a Federation infight episode as does DS9), other races with 'money', luxury. In Enterprise the family of the navigator are freighter workers etc.

Only in TOS it can be somewhat presumed to be a communist utopia.

One of the main things is, The Federation has (somehow) listened and 'fixed' the critiques on capitalism. For Americans critique on capitalism somehow equals commu/social/Marx-ism(s).

but quite literally not unless the world becomes severely depopulated and some kind of... one world government were to take control and "re-educate" the survivors into a new way of being human.

This happend in the ST universe.. There was the war with Khan, the genetic enhanced humans (TOS, TOS movie, Enterprise and the shitty reboot movie deal with this). There was a Global nuclear war and after that First contact with the Vulcans was made [See the Movie 'First Contact' from the TNG line https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_First_Contact {One of the, if not THE, best Star Trek movie}].

Step up your Trek game!

Addition: The new Star trek (the reboot films and new series) show capitalism milking dead a good idea the wrong way, but somehow people still pay.

I did read comments saying that after this episode they stopped airing Dr. Phil in the Netherlands

This is semi-true, it stopped on RTL 4 and moved to RTL 5 (4 is more of a Main channel than 5). But I can't find if they may have 'lost/skipped' this episode in the move. Dr. Phil is daytime/GOGETAJOB television as far as I know, never been a prominent evening program in The Netherlands.

Edit: On the same channels during the day are Tarotcard-phone-in-readers, teleshopping etc.

So I watched episode 1 and 2 of True Detective Season 3 today... and... by Vigte in Television

GO!

7) The brother was peeping through the hole in the wall at his OWN FUCKING SISTER (the parents, not the children) - I bet the brother has a lot to do with this.

Nah I think that was the uncle, he stayed in Will's room during the summer.

Though I'm sure this story is long from solved and/or introduced all the characters.

Earth:Final Conflict suits this narrative.

Aliens who 'help' us (humanity) get better but they also have their own agenda and black ops going on.

Political intrigue including presidential rigging of elections and all, but the acting isn't on par with Star trek productions.

Edit: Thanks for making me think of this serie, I still have to watch the last season I just found out about :)

Time traveller SHOCK claim: Allies won World War 2 with TIME MACHINE in London by Mnemonic in AlternativeHistory

I filled it under 'Alternate History' for a reason.

Made me think about Red Alert 1, 2 and 3.

Also, since 'time' is't a thing and is called space-time usually, means to go back in 'time' you'ls need to have the power and reach to change the whole of existence and showhow filter the 'time-traveling stuff' out.
