But why should he watch the video??? You posted it without comment yourself! I watched about 30 seconds, and like everybody else who has commented, I'm convinced is 100% shit. It's all about some special American ability to solve problems because "we have freedom", as if China doesn't solve a miriad problems on a daily basis, and as if the US isn't stuck on quite a few seemingly unsolvable problems today.
I watched the video but I didn't want to leave a comment behind without sullying or essentially priming you or anyone else's opinions on the video. I posted the video to see if what most or some of you who chooses to watch the video think of his (Peterson) assessments. Maybe, by some chance some here can appreciate Peterson's rationale even If many or all of his points are wrong.

Then perhaps you can outline what the points are?

He meets all the requirements to be regarded as a China 'expert':

1. Doesn't speak a single word of Mandarin
2. Has never been to China
3. Sources all his information about China from MSM, Gordan Chang, /r/China, and neolib think tanks
4. Is predicting the impending collapse of the Chinese economy
Jordan Peterson is an absolute retard. I matched with him on Chess.com in late 2020, and his Chess.com account was full of braggado about how awesome and popular his books were.

I defeated him anyway. He's slightly above average in chess. Rating about 1700.

Next time, I'll invite him to play Chinese chess with me.

You've shown him at which rank of the Lobster hierarchy he's placed on, "The Bottom Feeders".
