A new documentary about the Jordan Peterson phenomenon is being released in movie theatres, titled “The Rise of Jordan Peterson.” It is an attempt to present the man with all his warts, wrinkles, and foibles — while also revealing the immense wisdom that Peterson has unearthed through decades of study and struggle.
Jordan Peterson isn’t always ready for his close up. His temper flares as college protesters attempt to drown out his message. The professor steps back from those moments, eager to learn why his emotions got the best of him.
He’s endlessly curious, and sometimes fears he’s sharing the wrong life lessons. His fans may disagree, showering him with praise for the impact his “Rules” had on their lives. The film could have trimmed away some of that adulation.
Peterson wrote the book on getting one’s life in order, and it’s a stern but kind message that continues to reverberate in a culture kowtowing to victimhood. __ https://www.hollywoodintoto.com/rise-of-jordan-peterson-review/
Below is a trailer for the documentary:
Peterson Has Entered Rehab
Jordan Peterson’s wife Tammy has been fighting cancer, and that may have proven the straw that strained the camel’s back. Peterson was prescribed the anti-anxiety drug clonazepam, and after a number of months discovered that he was unable to stop taking the drug on his own. According to his daughter Mikhaila he has entered rehab to deal with this addiction and other health issues.
He tried to quit cold-turkey over the summer after his wife, Tammy Roberts, “miraculously” recovered from complications with a kidney surgery, Mikhaila said.
But he went through “horrific” physical withdrawal that has left him looking “like a lost puppy,” she said.
“He decided to check himself into a place because he didn’t want to stress mom out, wanted to get off of this as quickly as possible, and honestly needs the medical help…” said Mikhaila __ https://nypost.com/2019/09/20/jordan-peterson-enters-rehab-after-wifes-cancer-diagnosis/
Peterson’s travel schedule connected with his “Rules for Life” world book tour was hellishly demanding, and that alone — combined with a rapidly growing fame — would have brought most men stumbling to a halt. But if you also throw in a wife and childhood sweetheart’s life and death battle with cancer, it is no surprise that the man began showing some cracks in his armour.
Below is a Peterson family video update from Mikhaila Peterson:
The update video provides some inside information as to why Dr. Peterson has backed away from much of the public spotlight over the past several months. It also provides a serious warning to those who are taking clonazepam or who are considering taking the drug.
