Jordan Peterson...Master-mind or super con-man?
Nothing new in that, individuals have been doing it for hundreds of years, religious, political and social individuals have been doing this forever and ever, but today it has as much to do with making money as any real desire to change behaviour of the masses.
All behaviour is learned so it goes without saying that behaviour can be unlearned...but hey these days money rules the roost...
Oh dear me what people will do for money, fame and glory...A new guru, a new source of wisdom for the masses. So lets take a look at what some people have said about this yet another new Canadian master mind visiting to sell a product:
"OPINION: How much would I have to pay you to sit through a two-hour self-help sermon, peppered with relentless biblical references, delivered by a misogynist? A lot of young men, some older men and a baffling number of women paid between $70 and $270 to experience such torture. (Fellow columnist Martin van Beynen also attended, and had a different take.)
I am talking about the drab monologue burped out by celebrity pop psychologist Jordan Peterson on Wednesday at his sold-out Theatre Royal show in Christchurch.
I understand why men turned up - Peterson has said things like "the masculine spirit is under assault"; The patriarchy makes sense because men are naturally more competent; Violent attacks are what happens when men do not have partners, and monogamy is the answer for that. He's also an inspiration, in the way Logan Paul is an inspiration. He has lucked his way into making US$80,000 a month from his Youtube channel in donations alone". Go to:

Simon [build no] Bridges says the CGT is a tax on a tax!...so he will no doubt move to remove GST from rates [which is a tax]...but wait it was the Nats who upped GST from 12.5% to 15% after they promised not to do so...]
Poor old Simon and his house owning mates, who are yet once again on the wrong side of the river without a bridge!
