It’s the culture war he inserts into his self-help work that’s at issue though. Take that stuff out of his material and it’s basically ok. His work on Big-5 personal traits was good stuff – and I don’t care that he has some kind of mythico-religious take on masculinity etc – common for folks in our age bracket. [Joseph Campbell / power of myth stuff]
It’s the “feminist bad” “socialism” “liberal” “wokeism” stuff he parrots that is eye-rollingly awful – the way he does the standard “say something outrageous on twitter” promotional techniques – then do 9 interviews complaining how awful the left is.
That’s what’s annoying. But take that stuff out of Peterson, he’s fine.
