Ahh someone who actually knows Jordan Peterson

While I was chatting with Constantyne, I found out that he actually knows about Jordan Peterson and is a fan of his. He has the book 12 Rules For Life on his bedside table. Haha, so interesting. 😀

I mainly listen to Jordan Peterson for his talks on psychology and myths. But I agree with many of his political views. Apparently Constantyne feels the same way. While I do like talking with people who have different world views than me so that I can expand my perspective, I think it is refreshing to have someone to chat with who shares similar views.

Constantyne shared this quote with me, which I like.

I do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon. I seek to develop whatever talents God gave me—not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any earthly master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations and to face the world boldly and say – "This, with God’s help, I have done." All this is what it means to be an American.
