If you watched my show with Yaron this week, you saw that he mentioned Ben Shapiro’s interview of Jordan Peterson. Well, I watched it today, and then wrote up some thoughts I had about it. I posted those on Facebook, and also as a thread on Twitter, in reply to the short video clip of me discussing the difference between Peterson and Rand. (I posted that clip here yesterday.) At the end of my Twitter thread I posted this invitation to Shapiro, which you see in the below image. As you can see, he retweeted it! I guess that means I might actually get to discuss it with him??? Would love it, as much of a challenge as I know that will be!
On this week’s Yaron and Amy Show, we got into a discussion of Jordan B. Peterson’s pragmatism. It starts about 59 minutes into the episode:
Today I extracted a one minute teaser (about 1 hour, 19 minutes in?), which includes my take on the essential difference in the ethical foundations of Rand and Peterson. If you like it, I’d appreciate help in sharing the clip. Thanks! (It’s also available as a video on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, where I’ve separately posted the clip.)
Hope your week is off to a good start!
Yaron and Amy: Putin, Presidential Poutweeting, Prescription Drugs, Politics, Privacy, (Solar) Panels, Peterson’s Pragmatism, and Provinciality, TODAY at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT)
Poor Yaron! I’m pummeling him with one of my alliterative show titles today 😀 See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss with Yaron.

Because they’d prefer to perpetuate the myth that you’re some kind of Capitalist and then to be able to blame the effects of your interventions—like this one—on Capitalism. https://t.co/Dh78gcRMO8
