Mean mad white men: the allure of Jordan Peterson | Overland literary journal
To be sure, Peterson is no clownish firebrand in the vein of Yiannopoulos. Rather, he is urbane and respectable, emblematic of what British writer Olivia Laing has called ‘the endless malice of the polite right’. It is this, I think, that goes a long way to explaining the mass appeal of his writings and lectures: ‘just crazy enough’, in Jon Ronson’s phrase, to ensure media interest, but sufficiently intellectual-sounding to attract an audience for whom a brazen bigot like Yiannopoulos would be on the nose. For all those fan-made YouTube clips in which Peterson ‘destroys’ various interlocutors, in interviews he sounds, above all, reasonable. ‘I’m just laying out the empirical evidence,’ Peterson says to Newman at one point during their interview. It’s a rhetorical strategy shared by many stars of the New Atheist and alt-right firmaments: dressing up old-fashioned prejudice as civilised discourse while seeming to disavow ideology altogether.

Peterson’s Complaint
This is a very entertaining polemic against the right-wing “intellectual” Jordan Peterson.

Cory Doctorow: Zuck’s Empire of Oily Rags – Locus Online
Facebook isn’t a mind-control ray. It’s a tool for finding people who possess uncommon, hard-to-locate traits, whether that’s “person thinking of buying a new refrigerator,” “person with the same rare disease as you,” or “person who might participate in a genocidal pogrom,” and then pitching them on a nice side-by-side or some tiki torches, while showing them social proof of the desirability of their course of action, in the form of other people (or bots) that are doing the same thing, so they feel like they’re part of a crowd.

Zuwanderung und Asylstreit: Wie Verrohung der Sprache zur Eskalation beiträgt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Seit Jahren verschärft sich der politische Streit um Zuwanderung - auch rhetorisch. Worte werden zu Waffen, die Gräben in der Gesellschaft tiefer. Plädoyer für eine verbale Abrüstung. /// http://www.deutschlandfunkkultur.de/philosophischer-wochenkommentar-das-leid-anderer-anerkennen.2162.de.html?dram:article_id=421156 - Philosophischer Wochenkommentar Das Leid anderer anerkennen Von David Lauer
tl;dr es fordert Anerkennung ... moralisch uns selbst zu erkennen geben und zu erkennen, und was dabei rauskommt ist mehr oder weniger Schmeichelhaft. Entbloest sich selber seiner inhumanitaet. Fragiler mensch schuetzt sich voer seinem eigenen kalten wesen.

Guess who helped the rise of Europe’s mini-Trumps? Brexit-poisoned Britain | Guy Verhofstadt | Opinion | The Guardian
“Determined to keep the likes of Hungary and Poland sweet in an attempt to split Europe for the purposes of Brexit, the British government is inadvertently being complicit in the decline of the democratic institutions it helped to build in central and eastern Europe after the fall of communism.”
