We are sacrificing our children on the altar of a brutal, far-Left ideology

    The Telegraph just posted an article by Dr. Jordan B. Peterson:

    We are sacrificing our children on the altar of a brutal, far-Left ideology (telegraph.co.uk)

    "There is good evidence that many ancient societies sacrificed children to their gods. Parents in ancient Phoenician colonies in Carthage, Sicily, Sardinia and Malta slew their offspring prior to cremating them, hoping that the gods would hear their voices and bless them...."

    The more things change the more they remain the same.

    The full article is quoted by Dr. Peterson on his not behind a paywall YouTube channel with additional content that doesn't pull any punches which are targeted at other doctors practicing the profession as the title below plainly suggests:

    Doctors, Psychotherapists, Liars and Butchers - YouTube

    The way I see it, coming just after the Daily Wire documentary of "What is a Woman?". Some people are beginning to understand ancient history is repeating itself in our modern politics. Basically, the more things change the more they remain the same.

    I agree that this is basically child sacrifice.

    Far left ideology is bad news.

    ... But somehow I'm getting the impression that the OP wouldn't care for a centrist approach either...

    Which generation and how are they destroying the country? The people in charge at the highest levels of our government are all boomer level and older.

    How is it histrionic to object to tricking minors into having their bodies poisoned and mutilated beyond repair?

    I say this as someone who is not a fan of Jordan Peterson.

    Comparing gender affirming medical interventions to sacrificing children to Moloch is histrionics. If one wants to discuss how/if that should be done shrieking about child sacrifices isn’t a good place to start. Perhaps stick to admiring lobsters and cleaning one’s room.

    I assume then that you don't recognize the existence of "detransitioners."

    Feel free to make whatever assumptions about me you like and run with them. I have been told repeatedly here that I don’t get to pick my own political labels and have poor insight into the content of my own thoughts so join the crowd telling me what I really think.

    So to be clear, transchildren have the highest levels of suicide of all demographs.

    Are they committing suicide because loving parents and a support network that is trying to help them understand and/or come to terms with how they feel? Because that seems to be Peterson's argument. There are somethings I can get behind with what he says but this is just his own political biases screaching against the reality of what these kids are thinking and feeling. He is not helping them and neither are you. YOU are harming them. Stop.

    As for us, I don't understand the logic that we are sacrificing children by supporting them and loving them.

    I don't understand how you can be so blind as to see that it is your judgement and treatment of them that is pushing them to take rash steps.

    I don't understand how you with a straight face and righteous conviction argue that cutting open a child's chest and ripping out their heart to appease a deity is in ANY way congruous to saying "you can use whatever bathroom you want".

    Shame on the misguided hubris of anyone who makes that analogy with conviction.

    [Note: Spot the gender neutral pronoun I used correctly and calm down with the idea that it is a radical speech in itself]

    How do you "trick" someone into thinking something they ALREADY think?

    I have a feeling this is one of those times when I try to answer a rhetorical question and it turns out no one cared what I said anyway.

    But I will do it: note that I said trick someone into doing something and you said trick someone into thinking something.

    Even allowing that all these people somehow on their own generated this idea that their bodies do not "conform" to their identity (a notion that is very poorly defined in this context), which I do not believe, there is a difference between thinking something and carrying it out.

    The cult tells its victims that simply thinking something means their distress can be alleviated only by chemical and surgical means.

    I would call that modern Jedi mind tricks at least you saw the mistake.

    Besides anyone who has worked at a summer camp understands that you can trick the younger children into believing just about anything.

    I think he does it purposely for people who should be able to comprehend both the issue and comparison. It's a legitimate approach that would impact people that are educated enough to understand the parallel. To believe anything else may indicate that either it has flown over the head of a person's comprehension skills or probably they are purposely trying to dismiss his words so they don't have to deal with something substantive.

    Yes, yes, Peterson is really being very super smart when he’s making absurd comparisons whilst clutching at his pearls and us uneducated plebs has best shut up and take his wisdom on board. I know.

    It would have more effect if he was choking back tears like he’s want to do.

    I'm disappointed in Dr. Peterson's increasingly shrill pearl clutching. But then, I think that's all that the Right has left in the western world. Anger, resentment... it's ironic Peterson references Nietzsche so much. Nietzsche wouldn't approve of the Right's new found culture of victimhood and resentment, I'm afraid.
