Eric Weinstein Retweeted Bret Weinstein

This position is held in varying forms by nearly everyone thoughtful with whom I’m speaking. What divides these folks is which way to break the symmetry. But honest people see deep reasons that both outcomes are not healthy or workable. We need a genius healer we just don’t have.

Eric Weinstein added,

My position on the #Kavanaugh confirmation: Both outcomes are completely unacceptable.

Kavanaugh was clearly, at the very least, an entitled punk through college. Nothing suggests a radical shift in mindset. He appears to be the kind of adult that entitled punks grow into.

Putting someone on the court who is likely to view the world through those narrow eyes is a betrayal of the most elemental American values. All the worse that the nomination came from another entitled punk. It's a divisive finger-in-the-eye-for-life to patriots of all stripes.


Imagine this court has to intervene in an election, or confront one of the difficult issues that divides the nation. Kavanaugh's involvement will undermine the legitimacy of any decision in which he votes along expected lines.

On the other hand, we can't have a republic with veto-by-accusation, even if most accusations are true. The incentive to weaponize accusation will drag such a system quickly into an accusation-arms-race in which cooperation becomes impossible, and true victims are ignored.


This lose/lose situation is the same position we had on election night, 2016. It's telling. Our system has gone into a phase in which we are regularly forced to choose between unacceptable options. Normal tools won't save us. To survive we must embrace the new and unknown. Let's

TBH I am not sure I think Kavanaugh is the best choice either. But my resistance to making the new baseline for ruining someones life a completely unsubstantiated, manufactured, hit job - he absolutely must be confirmed.

And for a person to have the stones to step down after being confirmed as a symbol for how stupid this whole thing is - they would have to be a martyr. And I don't see that in him, nor do I think it is fair since he has a family to look out after and who knows how these fake allegations would effect his life going forward.

So this article/opinion is pointless, in that the people asking him to do this are doing so b/c of certain character traits he has revealed, and a person who has those would never step down in the first place. And thus they wouldn't be throwing this idea out there in the first place unless he was incapable of doing it. Strikes me as a pointless "look at how enlightened I am" opinion.

I'd be interested to hear Peterson expand on this. He would have to believe that he is also not fit to hold such a position given that he is a self-admitted former violent alcoholic.

I disagree with Peterson, and that's okay. I wish those who wanted to garner support against him would have focused on his prior rulings instead of trying to crucify him unjustly. We're at the point where it's now critical that he is confirmed as not to set the precedent for dismissing due process.

My buddy passed Peterson's book my way, and I gave it a read. He makes some solid points, but it's more or less common sense to anyone older than twenty. He may be intelligent, but he's no revolutionary thinker. Still like him well enough, though.

He’s definitely smart and I do think he’s got the bigger picture in mind. However, I think the worst thing to do right now...as men...is for Brett to step down or for his party to abandon him before confirming him. I don’t think getting Brett on the court is a WIN, but being chickenchits at this point will definitely be a LOSS.

This.


Anyone with kids(or even just common sense) realizes you don’t reward people for engaging in detrimental behavior. I don’t even think Bret was a great pick(though I don’t really know enough to have an in-depth view) but at this point getting him onto the court is a matter of principle. As someone who has been on the receiving end of a rabid mob of leftists I’m amazed Peterson thinks Kav should just surrender. Not surrendering is what launched Peterson into the spotlight, and now his suggestion is for someone who has been working his whole life towards this goal to just give up because the mob wants him to with no good reason other than “he’s not our guy!!!”. Fukk outta here Peterson(and I say that as a huge fan).

This is incredibly well said. Unfortunately the dems turned this into a zero-sum game and therefore there is no other choice but to confirm.

Eric Weinstein is extremely smart but even smart people take dumb opinions sometimes that get influenced by things other than pure logic.

Eric probably got everything he knows about Kavanaugh through CNN, NYT, ect. Hes probably not aware of all the details that prove Ford to be an outright liar. Theres nothing to suggest that Kav was a “punk”. Besides, since when does drinking beer with boyos in college disqualify you from position of power? if so then disrobe every single justice and politician to ever serve. Its a really bad argument to make from such a smart guy. He even called Trump a punk and that Trump shouldnt hold office. I mean you have to totallt ignore reality to deny Trump has been sensational as far as Presidents go and being the executive

Even though I completely disagree with Kavanaugh stepping down, I can see where Peterson is coming from.

In fact, with all the talk of “logic” in this thread, Peterson’s suggestion of allowing Kavanaugh to clear his name and appointing someone else (who would be just as conservative) is probably the most logical. Kavanaugh’s life will never be the same as his seat will forever have a giant asterisk next to it for about 50% of the country. Libs will go full lib with every contentious decision.

I just don’t think it would be worth conceding this one to the rabid left. They need to learn this lesson and hold this fukin L.

To understand people's reactions in this thread, and generally in media and around you, you should contemplate on the following quote:


We live in two Americas. One America, now the minority, functions in a print-based, literate world. It can cope with complexity and has the intellectual tools to separate illusion from truth.

The other America, which constitutes the majority, exists in a non-reality-based belief system. This America, dependent on skillfully manipulated images for information, has severed itself from the literate, print-based culture.

It cannot differentiate between lies and truth. It is informed by simplistic, childish narratives and clichés. It is thrown into confusion by ambiguity, nuance and self-reflection.

This divide, more than race, class or gender, more than rural or urban, believer or nonbeliever, red state or blue state, has split the country into radically distinct, unbridgeable and antagonistic entities.

There are over 42 million American adults, 20 percent of whom hold high school diplomas, who cannot read, as well as the 50 million who read at a fourth- or fifth-grade level. Nearly a third of the nation’s population is illiterate or barely literate. And their numbers are growing by an estimated 2 million a year.

But even those who are supposedly literate retreat in huge numbers into this image-based existence. A third of high school graduates, along with 42 percent of college graduates, never read a book after they finish school. Eighty percent of the families in the United States last year did not buy a book.

...

Political propaganda now masquerades as ideology. Political campaigns have become an experience. They do not require cognitive or self-critical skills.

They are designed to ignite pseudo-religious feelings of euphoria, empowerment and collective salvation. Campaigns that succeed are carefully constructed psychological instruments that manipulate fickle public moods, emotions and impulses, many of which are subliminal. They create a public ecstasy that annuls individuality and fosters a state of mindlessness. They thrust us into an eternal present.

They cater to a nation that now lives in a state of permanent amnesia. It is style and story, not content or history or reality, which inform our politics and our lives. We prefer happy illusions.

I'd say I agree with this. My own problem is that I don't know **** about Kav or his stances on the supreme court. I honestly don't know if he's a good pick in general. That being said, what is most important to me is the same thing you wrote. We can't govern by mob rule and that's exactly what's happening now. Weaponized accusations. The place where this ends is totalitarian fascism with only the select few who are the most outraged being in charge before they in turn are overthrown by other even more outraged accusers.

There is NOTHING divisive about Kavanaugh.


The left MADE him divisive because they don't want another Conservative on the SC, because they are scared of losing Roe v Wade, Obamacare, gay marriage, etc.


It doesn't matter who we nominated instead of Kavanaugh. The democrats would do the same exact thing and protest and go crazy.


This isn't about Kavanaugh.

This is about fighting to control the Supreme Court. The liberals refuse to accept election outcomes. They always do this.


The country votes Trump? Liberals refuse to accept the consequences of the election, and protest and kick and scream and pretend like the rest of us don't matter.
