We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Peterson confirms his membership of this far-right sect by never identifying the evils caused by belief in profit, or Mammon: slavery, genocide, and imperialism.
Yup. Like the USSR and the PRC -when its economy was still Communist- never did any imperialism themselves. Like the 100 million that Communism killed were killed for profit. And anyone who has similar disagreements with the "belief in profit" statement must be a member of the alt-right.
A correction on the article:
An earlier version of this essay misidentified The Gulag Archipelago as a novel; it is nonfiction (Solzhenitsyn called it “an experiment in literary investigation”).
Anyone who considers the Gulag a novel is an ignoramus. No accident that he also wrote that incoherent sentence about the "belief in profit."
Islamophobes will take heart from his speculation that “feminists avoid criticizing Islam because they unconsciously long for masculine dominance.”
Hasn't Pankaj Mishra, the author of the NYRB article, noticed that feminists DO avoid criticizing Islam? If he hasn't, he is not paying attention. What motives does he give for feminists avoiding criticizing Islam?
