Jordan Peterson , Sam Harris and Douglas Murray will be doing a gig in London and Dublin in mid July 2018. Peterson who’s C4 interview with Kathy Newman has been watched by over 10 million people is the star of the show – and this , of course , is the point . Its show business folks !
I have watched Peterson and Murray for several years now as well as many other Youtubers but I have been watching them less and less in recent times and have come to the conclusion that they may be doing more harm than good. Murray , to his credit has , if not defended the EDL then at least put them and their street protest movement in some sort of informed context but he is very much the exception and even he has a certain attitude towards working class people which I , as a working class person , find offensive and indicative of prejudice on Murray’s part. But compared to the rest of them he is quite radical and serious and fair in his analysis of political events. But it really gets my goat when people like Dave Rubin speak of the creation of an intellectual elite of which he himself of course is a member. Give me a woman like Anne Marie Waters any day of the week.
If I am looking for wisdom I will look to political parties such as the For Britain Movement and if I want to be entertained I will listen to Elvis.
