Christ, Noch. Must I have lived in vain?
A) Congratulations, I guess, and
B) Now it's time to focus on not having the second one. Because the second one is the real destroyer.
Colin Kaepernick eh?
So...this was us earlier this week...
Sheriff: Fugitive killed at Turkey Creek shopping center
Tough situation. I'll say that not all the facts are there in the article, but I'm precluded from saying much more at this point.
I know you have to be vague on purpose so difficult to know the full story but sounds like he wasn't exactly a winner. Glad to read that all the good guys came out of it alright.
I appreciate you responding. I certainly agree with some of your points regarding gender and marriage, but I also agree with him to an extent as well. Perhaps it was because I was also raised in a southern Baptist home with those same values. The chaos and order stuff is interesting and gives you things to reflect on and dive into, but I don’t know that I’d go so far as to assign it to one person in a relationship or another.When I have more time and not on my phone I’ll try and expound a bit more and make this a little more intelligent but I do actually like and agree with certain issues/ideas that he raises and discusses often, which is why my sentence on the mothership was that some of his views are easy to hate.
That being said, he loses me completely when he gets into gender roles and women = chaos, Taoism bullshit. As someone who is married to a woman who is every bit my equal in our marriage and the raising of my son, anyone that tells me she is the chaos and I’m the order in our relationship has already lost me (and no Scotty, she doesn’t Chop so she won’t see that).
I was raised by a father who treated my mother and his kid’s amazingly and who I love and respect very much but he believes similarly and it pisses me off. His version of it is biblical in nature which I don’t believe Peterson’s is but it echoes a lot of what I heard growing up. I didn’t realize it until I was much older but that view warped how I saw women I dated earlier in my adulthood and even partially how I viewed my own mother.
Ok, that went a little deeper than I originally intended so I’ll stop there but that at least gets to some of my issues with him. Plus, on top of that I feel like he’s taken what once was an actual intellectual stance on certain issues (even though I disagreed with some of them) and turned his platform into a bit of a three ring circus in order to profit. It works for him, and I’m all for anyone finding ways to take care of themselves but it makes it harder to take seriously.
