  1. Her point of view is political, my point of view is asthetic! Beyond satire.

    Is Alan Jordan Peterson incognito?

  2. Gravity controls. Humans, critics, writers, readers, all attempt, but mostly fail to control. I was told in 1973 by a co-worker who was reading GR during our lunchbreak at a linotype shop in Manhattan that: “it’s too deep for you kid, forget you ever saw this book.” I obeyed, although in 2014 I purchased the book (but still have been afraid to open it). Listening to your podcast has given me the courage to at least think about what I may have missed all these years. Thank you fellow lovers of literature.
