For the last few months now, Red-Pill Game/PUA chieftain Vox Day has been engaging in yet another envy-fueled rage: this time against Jordan Peterson. And so far his hysterical outbursts have had about negative effect on Peterson as his previous tirades against John Scalzi, Ben Shapiro, and Ethan Van Scrivener; to wit, none whatsoever.
Frustrated both by Peterson's success and his own complete lack thereof, Vox has self-published an attack on Peterson titled Jordanetics. It contains a preface penned by the pervert Milo Yiannopoulis and ringing endorsements from such fellow Gamers and Alt-RINOs as Rollo Tomassi, Krauser PUA, Chateau Heartiste, and Vox' newest disciple, Alex Jones. Vox is already trumpeting the tome as a 'bestseller' although it doesn't appear on any bestseller-lists of any repute; and, as always, Vox discreetly doesn't tell us what his sales figures actually are.
Vox calls Peterson "a danger" and actually accuses him of establishing an anti-Christian cult with fanatical followers who would do anything to serve him! As if that wasn't psychological projection enough, Vox says of Peterson: "I would point out that he is a drug-addled, integrity-challenged depressive little bitch prone to crying in public, who is one of the last people any sane young man should look to as a role model."
Now that everyone's finished laughing, we should point out that about the only real danger posed by Peterson to young men is the risk of severe constipation from following his loopy diet-fads. Peterson's book on The 12 Rules of Life is a weird admixture of Machiavelli, Karl Jung, and Dr. Phil; but at least it encourages men to do a few positive things to improve their lives---which is more than Vox can claim to have done.
Overall, I believe that Peterson's book is vastly overrated, but nothing in it does anybody any real harm either. Unlike Vox Day, Peterson has never held up men like Anders Breivik as male role models. He doesn't teach men to avoid educated women or praise the Taliban for assassinating schoolgirls. Peterson doesn't teach young men to doxx and troll-storm his opponents. Peterson doesn't give men relationship advice like "a few acid-burned faces is a small price to pay for lasting marriages and stable families."
Peterson doesn't create online blacklists and publicize them for fanatics to follow. He doesn't tell young men that churches are for 'cucks'; or that non-Whites are subhumans; or that men don't need women's consent for sex. Vox accuses Peterson of being a 'liar', yet teaches his own followers that controlling the 'narrative' is more important than telling the truth.
However flawed Peterson might be, Vox Day is not even close to his level. There is no such cult as 'Jordanetics'; but Vox' cult of the Red Pill is very real and very dangerous.
