Ah, I thought he was implying that there were few Peterson fans left. If he wasn't, my mistake.

Wow.

I find Peterson annoying sometimes but one of "the worst humans in history"?

These guys need to get a sense of perspective.

This, uh. Has nothing to do with morality. But it’s what I ended up looking up so there you go. Then again the amount of “You didn’t actually see it but it makes sense so it’s probably there, so here’s what you get to perceive” shorthand that your brain does for you probably is relevant to perceptions of morality too.
