I will openly admit that I’m going through a really rough period in my life and the waves has ease tremendously thanks to Dr. Jordan B. Peterson. Some of you are already beginning to get pissed off or some of you are a fan but I am not really in the mood to support either side nor am I going to waste my energy debating for Dr. JBP because that is not my job.
Last year, I learned more details about my dad with his involvement with the Khmer Rouge that threw me into a position of existential, agonizing pain that became so unbearable that I was starting to get angry. I wanted revenge. I wanted the Rouge to pay for what they did and so, I wanted to get into Cambodian politics and overthrow those sons of bitches out of power. I knew if I wanted to save the Khmer people, I will lose my life but I didn’t care.
I wasn’t in the right state of mine.
My friend Tom saw this and traveled all the way to the Netherlands to see Dr. Peterson where he was touring for his book 12 Rules. Tom failed to get my question to him but he didn’t give up. His friend was about to lose alot for something he knew she would not stop until she loses everything. So, he contacted another friend who is working with Dr. Peterson as of right now on a documentary and asked him if he can get Dr. Peterson to answer my question. And he did at the 45:00 mark.
And so, I made a response to him in this video below:
He did not tell me once to fuel my anger but to forgive and love my dad. To learn that evilness is within all of us. Yet, why do people still smear him? Why do people hate him?
What makes me sad that I lost friends from the Ideapod community because I like Peterson. Friends that are supposed to be open to ideas, friends who I thought cared for me end up turning their backs on me.
Ideas are supposed to be challenged sure, but why go to the certain extent and smear someone as a Nazi? Dr. Peterson has helped so many people and sure, his politics may make some of your ears bleed but should you judge their actions more than their words?
I am moving forward with his help and I am pretty sure a Nazi wouldn’t take the time to help a young Cambodian woman to deal with her dragon of chaos.
