  • This content is taken from Russell Brand's Under The Skin Podcast with Jordan Peterson, link below. Full interview: all have a bias, whether Left-leaning or Right-leaning. It's essential that we all make the effort to lean Center - the only place where common ground can be established. Russell and Jordan have a conversation that is both expansive and stimulating, in spite of their disagreements. They give us a road map to constructive dialogue. Follow my writing on Medium:

    Simple. A debate is to find out "what" is right. NOT, "Who" is right.

    ​@Pold the only We actually live in a field of "infinite possibilities" -- so often blind to it, but, our lack of awareness does not equal a lack of its existence. And the more we practice awareness of it, the more we see it. Of course, what that means is, there is a solution that works for everyone, if we'll be willing to keep going. And I see our world doing this more and more. -- Probably because I've chosen to do it more and more. 💗 Which is beautiful.

    They use... "Respect" and "common decency" two mysterious and lost arts.

  • C 0  20 days ago

    Maxwell Super Yet, they lack both for reality. And they only say that because they want it given to them and their ideas. I can argue that they have no idea.

  • J.B said that you dont have to respect someone you dont even can be correct in a political maner....respect its something that had to be earned by moments NOT forever and its earn by telling the truth. so people need to be more aware of every moment and situation. maybe at the end of the conversation they respect each other. think about it!

    Every time I hear Russell Brand speak I cannot help but laugh wondering about how conversations between he and Katy Perry must have went.

    What I like about Russell is that he's careful to not mischaracterize other viewpoints.

    @Echoes of Malachor Interest goes a long way! Curiosity. Engagement.

  • Similar to the Joe Rogan interviews. There is no sense or hint of agenda coming from the the interviewer. You could actually feel Russell’s interest when Jordan started talking about divergent/creative thought processes

    This makes me realize Brand is the type who's usually the quickest and sharpest person in the room, so he's often bored and speaks in these obscure and sometimes obnoxious witticisms - but its really just boredom.Here, he really respects the person whom he's speaking with, and it shows.

  • Ariadne Wolf  16 days ago

    Yeah he's a smart man. He gets underestimated because he seems ridiculous, but he earns a lot of money for doing that.

  • Witticisms is a very interesting word. Thanks

    What Russell Brand does in this interview is called 'steelmanning'; instead of misrepresenting JP's views and arguments to make them easier to attack, (i.e 'strawmanning') he represents them accurately, just as JP would describe them, before respectfully offering his own views based on this solid foundation. Other interviewers have instead gone the strawman route, whereby the interviewer will make repeated jabs at JP by misrepresenting his views reductio ad absurdum, which forces JP to restate and cla...

    Brand is a recovering herion addict. He's never done anything of value in his life. You need to look for better role models, such as the man sitting across from him.
