The Truth Perspective: The Great Debate: Sam Harris and Jordan Peterson's Epic 4-Night Battle of Ideas

Jordan Peterson speaks to an audience of nearly 3,000 in Portland on June 25, 2018

Jordan Peterson speaks to an audience of nearly 3,000 in Portland on June 25, 2018
Jordan Peterson and Sam Harris meet to debate what it would take to create universal morality. Brett Weinstein joins as moderator, putting the entire discussion into context. That context? That society's 'sense-making mechanisms' are breaking down. The worldview offered by the news media, universities, churches, and government has proven to be a house of cards that cannot stand scrutiny. Inquiring minds find only more and greater confusion. Moral chaos has ensued. How can we find our way out?

Sam Harris, author of The End of Faith and The Moral Landscape, argues that humanity, caught between dogmatic fundamentalism on one side and postmodern nihilism on the other, must forge a new morality based on facts derived from science. Jordan Peterson argues that the very human psyche, evolutionarily, neurobiologically, and only then culturally speaking, has a specific structure, and that this is the 'beast' we must contend before defining any sort of universal moral theory.

Today on the Truth Perspective we share our thoughts on the first two nights of debate, what we think each speaker gets right, where they're vague, and what might provide the solution to their disagreements.

Listen to the Harris/Peterson talks here: night 1, night 2, night 3, night 4.

The Health & Wellness Show: Tomorrowland: Dystopia or Utopia?

bad tech
Dystopia or Utopia? We suppose it depends on your point of view. There are some tech giants and tech lovers who see a whole new world of possibilities at their fingertips. There are people who'd like nothing more than to merge with technology and enhance their subpar human abilities whilst living in a segregated smart city. If you're an average Joe who values his privacy and doesn't want to be spied on by his refrigerator or have to engage in biometric screening just to go to work, a fresh hell awaits.

On this episode of The Health and Wellness Show we discuss the world of the future, the slow creep of technology and the benefits and detriments of Tomorrowland.

And stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where she talks about the origin of domesticated cats!

NewsReal: Treason, Really? Trump-Putin Summit Enrages The War Party

trump putin hysteria
We knew it was going to provoke those vested in isolating Russia and keeping the US president on a leash, but we didn't know it would set off such a firestorm. Trump's brief meeting with Putin last Monday should really just be a footnote to the fact that trade, security, and diplomatic relations between the two countries are at an all-time low. Instead, the 'Washington Consensus' reacted as if the whole world had been turned upside-down!

This week on NewsReal with Joe and Niall, we're discussing the fallout and trying to understand why certain people consider a meeting between the world's largest nuclear powers as 'treason'.

The Truth Perspective: An Introduction to Jordan Peterson's Maps of Meaning: Explaining Evil and Transforming Chaos

Professor Jordan B. Peterson
In 1999, Jordan Peterson published his first book, Maps of Meaning. The central question he set out to answer was this: "how did evil - particularly group-fostered evil - come to play its role in the world?" Now, nearly twenty years later and given Peterson's newfound popularity, the book has started selling again, especially given that he just released an audiobook version.

Today on the Truth Perspective, we will take a look at the basic ideas Peterson introduces and their connections with other works and theories, like Lobaczewski's ponerology and Dabrowski's theory of positive disintegration.

The Health & Wellness Show: Wireless Technology: 5G is Just the Tip of the Iceberg

WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G, 4G and soon 5G - we are living in a time of complete saturation of wireless signals. We're literally bathed in these frequencies 24 hours a day, from cradle to grave. But is this exposure safe? Official government bodies say yes, it's perfectly safe, and they back these assurances with seemingly solid scientific studies. This perspective is widely propagated and anyone raising concerns about wireless exposures is usually dismissed as a nutcase. But what if the very standard of measurement used in these studies is completely wrong?

On this episode we're joined by Scottie of scottiestech.info who has gone through the scientific research to get to the bottom of the question: What the heck is this technology doing to us? It turns out there is a great deal of research showing the harmful effects of wireless exposure that goes well beyond the red herrings used in studies "proving" its safety.

Join us on this episode as Scottie helps break down the complexity of the subject to help us make informed decisions about wireless exposure.

And stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where she discusses how humans from different cultures anthropomorphize different animals to represent the same human traits.

NewsReal: Trump on Tour! US President Takes Wrecking Ball to NATO & EU, Mueller Indicts Russians

© The Nation
President Trump, State of the Nation Address, 2018
A calamitous week for the UK government began with ministers resigning over Brexit negotiations and ended with protests against Trump's first state visit. Just as he had done at the NATO Summit in Brussels prior to his arrival in the UK, Trump loudly repeated his stance on everything from Brexit to mass immigration to trade to Russia, pounding every sore spot in the ever-weaker Western Alliance.

Meanwhile, Russiagate hearings back home erupted in fireworks, with proceedings becoming so heated during examination of the FBI agent at the center of the 'Russian collusion investigation', Peter Strzok, that even Republican politicians called for them to be moved behind closed doors. And as that was going on, Mueller's investigation lobbed more indictments against Russians he alleges rigged the 2016 US election.

It's getting pretty chaotic out there! Join Joe and Niall today on NewsReal as they try to take it all in. Live audio broadcast on Sott Radio from 12 noon EST / 6pm CET

The Truth Perspective: Trump's Zionist Ball and Chain: The Kushner-AIPAC-Port Authority Connection

Trump Kushner Netanyahu
© Hispan TV
Most Americans probably know Jared Kushner as Ivanka Trump's husband, and President Trump's right-hand man working on the Trump administration's Israel-Palestine 'deal of the century'. But how many remember his father, Charles? The elder Kushner is a real-estate developer, like Trump. But he's also a convicted felon who has done jail time for his corrupt 'business' practices, various financial crimes and mafia-like antics. He's also close friends with Benjamin Netanyahu, who once slept in Jared's bed when Jared was a teenager (don't worry, Jared slept in the basement).

Scratch below the surface of Kushner's past and you will uncover the corrupt world of New Jersey and New York politics, the Port Authority, organized crime, and a pay-to-play system that would make Hillary and Bill blush: bribery and blackmail, trysts and affairs, conspiracy and collusion, revolving-door nepotism, backstabbing and lobbying for the interests of a foreign state. As Ryan Dawson of Anti-Neocon Report puts it, "Crooks are using the state to enrich themselves and then using this wealth to further the interest of the Israeli regime and its grip over America money, media, and military power."

Today on the Truth Perspective we discuss Dawson's 2017 documentary God Is Not A Real Estate Agent: Trump's Zionist Ball & Chain, which goes into all these topics in depth.

The Health & Wellness Show: Dudes in Distress: The State of Men and Boys in the West

boys adrift
Lately, there has been lots of talk about the gender gap. For most people the gender gap refers to disparities in treatment between men and women with the focus solely being on female inequality. The truth is that male inequality has been thoroughly ignored and boys and men are losing out. Males are falling behind in various aspects of society including education, employment and health. They make up the majority of suicides, high school dropouts, the homeless and workplace fatalities all the while being excoriated in misandrist attacks for their 'toxic masculinity'. Is it any wonder that men, marked as disposable, are deciding to go their own way? And if the patriarchy reigns supreme, why are males in such dire straits?

Join us for this episode of The Health and Wellness Show where we'll discuss the state of men and boys in the West and the continuous whittling away of their status in society by radical feminists and the efforts to combat this trend. For contrast, we'll also take a look at some actual toxic males who give a bad name to all the good guys out there.

NewsReal: Novi-shock! Devious Russians Tire of Spectacular World Cup, Poison Innocent Brits For Laughs

novichok butter
Bored stupid by having to smile for millions of foreigners enjoying the 2018 Football World Cup, the Russians last week schemed to - once again - lash out at poor old England by poisoning two more people with their dastardly 'Novichok' nerve agent. The incident came just before the OPCW released an interim report on the alleged chemical attack on Douma earlier this year (that the West used to justify firing cruise missiles at targets near Damascus and Aleppo). The report stated that no evidence of chemical weapons were found.

If you think these events are both bonkers and a little too convenient, that's because they are.

The Truth Perspective: And Then They Came for the Psychologists: Why SJWs Can't Stand Science

Vladimir Lenin
As Jordan Peterson often says, biologists will be the next group targeted by the radical Left. But psychologists are in even more danger. In today's episode of the Truth Perspective we discuss a chapter in Dr. Andrew Lobaczewski's book Political Ponerology on the state of psychiatry and psychology under totalitarian regimes and what it means for us in the West.

Marx thought that human nature didn't exist and that 'consciousness' was solely determined by social forces. The postmodern left also believes that human nature can be shaped into their own image. They're wrong. But that won't stop them from trying to force-fit humans into their narrow ideological vision of what humanity should be like. And as history shows, the only way to attempt such folly is through the use of force and terror.

By looking at the state of psychiatry and psychology in former Communist nations, we can get a clue as to what they were trying to hide - and why psychology is so important when it comes to protecting ourselves from the terrors of mass ideological possession.

Tune in Saturday at 12 pm EDT as we take off the mask of totalitarian leftist ideology and see what lies beneath.
