Very.

We're somewhere in the middle, between Peterson's view that the radical left represents only a very small but vocal minority (which isn't true, or it's irrelevant, because they're creating real problems for a lot of people right now and it's got to stop), and Jolly's view that a war's a-comin' (which I don't think is true because we've figured out more complicated problems before; then again it's not impossible if things continue to escalate I guess).
I cite irreconcilable differences.

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

Yeah, great article!
It would be informative to have a follow-up article(s) on the deeper reasons someone like Bret Weinstein and his wife were forced to leave Evergreen College. And, the deeper reason Jordan Peterson opposed C-116.

This paragraph struck me as what I would hope becomes common in the future:
wrote:But they all share three distinct qualities. First, they are willing to disagree ferociously, but talk civilly, about nearly every meaningful subject: religion, abortion, immigration, the nature of consciousness. Second, in an age in which popular feelings about the way things ought to be often override facts about the way things actually are, each is determined to resist parroting what’s politically convenient. And third, some have paid for this commitment by being purged from institutions that have become increasingly hostile to unorthodox thought — and have found receptive audiences elsewhere.

Liston to Bret Weinstein being interviewed on Sam Harris' podcast.
