    more benign, but also more credible - which makes it worse, in a way

    marginally more credible. he's already more laughing stock than bogeyman.

    to the point ive almost begun to find him endearing. he's relatable.

    is "laughing stock" a good description of peterson? why are there so many articles about - some praising, most denouncing - him?

    i was reading this bubbes guy this morning, slotherdjik
    its been freaking me out a bit cos theres a lot of my ideas in there
    i would say he is the continental answer to peterson. basically the same (bluffing)
    technique but better read. i sort of see them as my people in a way.
    so although i know theyre ridiculous i also feel affectionate towards them.

    like this is me

    What then are the conditions necessary to invoke the demon, and how does one make it talk? The enclosed space, like the magicianís circle, is a given. Within the circle the magician is protected. The demon is safely contained. The therapistís room, like the magicianís circle is a special kind of space. The rules are suspended. Reality is more malleable there, and experiments can be made in relative safety. Old habits are sloughed off, new selves are tried on for size, like costumes plucked from the dressing up box.
    This is the frame. The bubble. It is unimportant whether the frame is formally demarcated but it is must be there, at least implicitly. By sealing off the outside world, what is formed is analogous to the bubble universes of speculative physics. Ideally, what happens in the bubble universe allows the client to be stronger, wiser, kinder and more contented on returning to the wider world.

    Isn't that guy the equivalent of this "alt-right vs SJW" - thing in "academia" ? Meaning, he is the 4chan college professor or something?

    You can't take this circus seriously, anyways.
