Preorder JORDANETICS

Jordan Peterson is believed by many to be the greatest thinker that humanity has ever known. He is Father Figure, Philosopher-King, and Prophet to the millions of young men who are his most fervent fans. He is the central figure of the Intellectual Dark Web, an academic superstar, and an unparalleled media phenomenon who has shattered all conceptions of what it means to be modern celebrity in the Internet Age.

He has, by his own admission, thought thoughts that no one has ever thought before. He has dreamed dreams that no one has ever dared to dream before.

But Jordan Peterson is also a narcissist, a charlatan, and an intellectual con man who doesn't even bother to learn much about the subjects upon which he lectures. He is a defender of free speech who silences other speakers, a fearless free-thinker who runs away from debate, difficult questions, and controversial issues, a philosopher who rejects the conventional definition of truth, and a learned professor who has failed to read most of the great classics of the Western canon. He is, in short, a shameless and unrepentant fraud.

But is Jordan Peterson more than a mere fraud? Is he something more sinister, more unbalanced, and even more dangerous? In JORDANETICS: A Journey Into the Mind of Humanity's Greatest Thinker, political philosopher Vox Day delves deeply into the core philosophy that Jordan Peterson advocates in both his written works and his video lectures. In doing so, Day methodically builds a shocking case that will convince even the most skeptical Jordan Peterson supporter to reconsider both the man and his teachings.

Featuring a Foreword by Milo Yiannopoulos, the ebook edition of JORDANETICS will be released by Castalia House on November 19, 2018. A paperback edition will be published before Christmas.

I disagree, the straitjacket was obvious to me from a glance at my phone.

And moderate visual ambiguity actually catches more attention.

Blogger SouthRon October 27, 2018 12:09 PM  

Ordered. Jordan is a dangerous fraud, even more so than the TIA crowd. I have no use for him, but cannot wait to read this smack down.

Blogger VD October 27, 2018 12:11 PM  

For the Nth time, please note that I am not even a little bit interested in anyone's belated ideas for how I should improve anything AFTER it has been publicly released.

Now, for your further edification, please go watch the video: THIS IS WHY NO ONE LIKES YOU.

Blogger Lovekraft October 27, 2018 12:28 PM  

It's appearing that Jordan's main role isn't to heal and direct towards better lives, but to distract and appease while the globalists continue on their agenda.

The hard questions (immigration, marxism in gov't/academia etc, race-dividing media and politicians etc) will never even be mentioned, except to portray these concerns as extreme and beyond the pale.

Blogger Sun Xhu October 27, 2018 12:30 PM  

I know it's yours, VD, and I know you've made tweaks to things before. That was the only reason I made that observation. For some reason, which may have been some psychological thing, when I watched the Darkstream, it looked more obvious.

Dropping it now.

Blogger Matt Sellitto October 27, 2018 12:40 PM  

How can I resist pre-ordering? Just the forward by Milo alone will be worth the price!

Blogger VD October 27, 2018 12:48 PM  

That was the only reason I made that observation.

That's fine, and certainly there is nothing wrong with discussing things like that. But do you have any idea how irritating, how DEMORALIZING it is for literally the very first response to something that has taken months to create is:

"hey, want me to show what a smart boy I am by telling you what is wrong with your new creation?"

This doesn't just make people dislike you, it makes them want to MURDER you. There is a time and place for everything, and an announcement is NEVER a place for criticism, constructive or otherwise.

You almost feel sorry for the guy for being used by the deep state and given validation to his delusions by millions of people. My Dad is a mentally ill narcissist, and my Mom enabled his delusions for years to the point of him becoming a completely pathetic loser who lives in a bubble and hasn't had a job since before I was born. It's not kind to enable the mentally ill.

Blogger Pierre Truc October 27, 2018 1:01 PM  

ORDERED! This is going to make so many lobsters pucker up!

The sales blurb is awesome.

> This doesn't just make people dislike you, it makes them want to MURDER you.

Now, you're probably going to want to murder me then, 'cause I'm still gonna ask if it is legal to put Jordy's face on your book cover, without his permission I assume... Nice choice of mugshot and outfit, btw, really does the man justice!

Blogger Jack Amok October 27, 2018 1:03 PM  

But is Jordan Peterson more than a mere fraud?

If you're busy cleaning your room and petting cats, you won't have time to actually fight the globalists. Especially if you're taking your chill-pills like a good prole.

And while I certainly don't need to delve into Jordie's philosophy, I have some Millennial nephews who might benefit from it.

He is Father Figure, Philosopher-King...

Funny way to spell Lobster.

Blogger VD October 27, 2018 1:04 PM  

I'm still gonna ask if it is legal to put Jordy's face on your book cover, without his permission I assume.

Yes. Especially given the nature of the image. You'll note that nobody asks me for permission to use my picture when they put it an article, a post, or a tweet.

Hey Vox apparently being jealous makes you super fast and extra productive.

I mean just yesterday you took interest in the guy and you already wanna bury him six feet under XD.

Blogger Jim the Curmudgeon October 27, 2018 1:59 PM  

This made my day, as I've been waiting for this announcement for a while now. I can just imagine JBP's face when someone emails him a link to it. We all know one of his greatest fears is that this will all come tumbling down.

People will eventually wake up to the fact that the guy IS the establishment. Trying to secure a TV show with creepy left wing Hollywood types, working with the UN to sell mass migration, telling young (western) men not to take pride in their culture or ethnicity. Not only has he been schlepping a line that is handy to the internationalist left, but he has become rich in the process. (900k a year on Patreon, probably upwards of 1.5 million from his tours, sales on his execrable books, etc etc).

Blogger Nate73 October 27, 2018 2:10 PM  

Why does amazon allow reviews to be left on a book not yet released?

"This doesn't just make people dislike you, it makes them want to MURDER you. There is a time and place for everything, and an announcement is NEVER a place for criticism, constructive or otherwise."

To the Gammas: A far better attitude is to compliment the creator about some aspect of his new creation that you find particularly interesting or compelling.

Blogger Franz Lyonheart October 27, 2018 2:40 PM  

Pre ordered.

Kick ass cover btw. I had to do a double take. And a triple. And a quadruple. And I had to lol.

Blogger Franz Lyonheart October 27, 2018 2:44 PM  

PS. Is it sold at $5.99 in the Kindle USA store? Could it be possible that the price swapped immediately to $6.40 after I had put in my logins with the London address?

Be that as it may......, pre purchased from the Kindle UK store anyway (£4.99).

Blogger Garuna October 27, 2018 2:57 PM  

Cover looks pretty good. The time is right for this book too. After the Kavanaugh blunder, many Peterson fans are seeing some serious cracks in their previously perfect image of the guy.

can't wait to see how r/JordanPeterson will "debunk" this

r/JordanPeterson is itself a debunked subreddit. Outnumbered and conquered by the enemies. A total embarrassment.

Blogger Silent Draco October 27, 2018 3:00 PM  

I'll wait for the paperback. Several of the minds at risk blather about The Littlest Chickenhawk, but are easily shifted back by rhetoric. None have mentioned or talked much about JBP, but if the name comes up, I want something tactile for them to read.

The sales blurb is amazing, an excellent blend of question, sales pitch, and rhetoric.

Blogger Cecil Henry October 27, 2018 3:05 PM  

Don't hesitate to let others know about the book on Peterson's Twitter and other accounts.

I'm sure they would be interested in learning all they can about the truth. No dragons here folks.

Blogger YourRuler October 27, 2018 3:39 PM  

Awesome!! Will be purchasing a hard copy.
Is this a compilation of what you covered on the blog and various Dark Streams about the Lobster King or a deeper delve with even more cringe?

"still gonna ask if it is legal to put Jordy's face on your book cover, without his permission"

When a photograph of one or more clearly identifiable rioters shows up on the front page of a newspaper, do you think that the people depicted gave any sort of permission for their likeness to appear in print?

The person who controls the image is whoever owns the copyright... and in almost all cases (the exception being commissioned works), the copyright belongs to the person who created the image -- NOT the person depicted.

Blogger Tank October 27, 2018 3:55 PM  

Ordered. I've only read a bit of his work and seen a few of his videos (including, of course, the great interview that made him famous - he did do a good job there), but, based upon past experience, I trust VD will honestly quote or summarize JD's statements and positions, then proceed with his own analysis. Looking forward to reading this.

Blogger Mr.MantraMan October 27, 2018 3:57 PM  

Yeah I'll probably buy it, I have no interest in Lobstaman, never did and never will but I will assume that this book will be instructive.

When I first heard of his pronoun kerfluffle the first thing that went thru my mind, "ah the old right wing naughty talk scam."

Ordered. BTW, I loved Owen Benjamin's hilarious rant at Jordy supporters after his own disillusionment with the man. Got me watching some of Benjamin's other YouTube videos and his stand-up comedy special on Amazon Prime. It's rare to see such a sharp-minded celebrity on the side of truth.

Blogger OGRE October 27, 2018 4:51 PM  

@11 Pierre Truc

There is no such thing as a copyright to a persons likeness; copyrights only protect "original works" so it must be something created that expresses an idea, like a book or painting or song. A person's likeness isn't an original work. Someone could have a copyright in the actual photograph of a person's likeness, but not to the actual likeness itself.

There is such a thing as publicity rights, which would protect against having one's likeness misappropriated without consent or privilege. For instance, using Peterson's likeness in an advertisement for Red Lobster. But there is a giant exception to that when its used in news or commentary, because First Amendment. Its why crazy Kathy Griffin can use Trump's severed head in a photoshoot, and why Time magazine can plaster Trump all over its covers. Likewise, one can do as Vox has done and write a book critical of a person or celebrity and use their image on the cover.

(Doing so with a non-famous person could run into violations of privacy protections depending on the jurisdiction, but famous people are fair game.)

Blogger The Deplorable Podunk Ken Ramsey October 27, 2018 5:34 PM  

Pre-ordered, and planning to buy the print edition, too. I hope to be gifting it this Xmas to Peterson buck-oes in my life.

I was asking in an international context. We French don't have a first amendment. I've looked it up... Since Jordy is a public personality, if the photo was taken in a public context, it should be OK here. Probably.

Now, I'm gonna have to get a lobster, plus the appropriate wine and sauce, then take a picture of myself eating it, and post that on r/JP.

Blogger Sam Sutherland October 27, 2018 5:53 PM  

Some people will buy it thinking it's a book on JP's health and diet tips.

Vox continues to display his background in combat: find a opening and repeatably attack it.

This is going to lead to years of pissed off comments here. That'll be fun. Have we come up with a good name for the Jordan Fanatics? Jordantologists?

Blogger SciVo October 27, 2018 7:38 PM  

Before posting criticism, it is generally a good idea to ask yourself, "Why am I not sending this as an email instead?"

If the answer is, "Because email is more work and I'm feeling lazy," then either send an email anyway or just don't do anything.

If the answer is, "Because that wouldn't give me the narcissistic fuel that I'm looking for," then neither post it as a comment nor send it as an email.

If the answer is, "Because I'm bad and want him to feel bad," then sure, go ahead and shout "Hey! You! Yeah, you! Your fly is undone! I SAID, [points below the waist] WE CAN SEE YOUR DICK."

I usually don't go out my way to compliment you as your accomplishments often speak for themselves. This time, however, I cannot believe you releasing an entire new book. I legitimately thought when you were talking about jordanetics you were joking around. This on top of all your other work is very impressive.

Blogger John Best October 27, 2018 10:18 PM  

Maybe JP will pick one up, mistaking the straight jacket for his genius mind having to be constrained.

Blogger Tupla-J October 28, 2018 12:35 AM  

I have to say that it feels like Christmas already. The Supreme Dark Lord is too good. I had no idea your Jordanetics stuff were going to be a book, as you've been so generous offering them in blog and vlog formats. This is great news and I'm ordering it now.

Blogger InformationMerchant October 28, 2018 1:09 AM  

The time it takes you to put out a book makes me laugh. You've been talking about "Corporate Cancer" for a long time, but when you get the motivation from JP fans and JP himself gives you a huge opening to attack, you manage to churn out a book in record time.

I hope one my favourite JP moments made it in. The one in which he claims primitive societies tapped into latent knowledge by getting high. That one is particularly special because it takes away even any claim he has of being a good psychology professor, which is one of the last claims about him that persists. Some of the nuggets he throws in and teaches students are awful. This guy is the government poster boy for children all learning the same thing.

You've attacked him from so many different angles, a collection of arguments in book form sounds like something his fans won't be able to deal with. We even get the bonus of telling them to read a book when they tell us to watch a 3 hour lecture to understand what he meant by X.

Your writing is doing well elsewhere too. Rorsash reviewed Alt Hero 3 and liked it.

That's got Carlos Casteneda written all over it. He's another quack PhD. Carlos was quite the sensation amongst a certain set back in the 70's and 80's. Coincidentally that's a set which would strongly appeal to Peterson, I'd bet. Castenda was the learned peyote shaman guru dude. Very trippy, very dreamy. Tailor made for some Jungian like Peterson!

Has anybody asked Jordy about Carlos? That might be an interesting exercise.

Two things come to mind:

This is an excellent Non-Dover Classic cover. Look at the style with the historical (hysterical?) figure featured, front and center.

Lobsterman - from talking over the summer with a number of lobstermen, real fishers, they will tell you that lobsters are all cannibals. The rubber bands on the claws are there to keep them from tearing each other apart as food, before they're picked for the pot. Especially the younger and weaker cousin lobsters...

Time for a different coffee cup.
