835 Intellectual Dark Web


YouTube has made some unlikely people famous: Jordan Peterson, for example; a soft-spoken clinical psychologist who went against the full force of Leftist elitism all by himself, earning him First Chair in the Intellectual Dark Web, a term used by an informal group of pundits who oppose the ideology of The Left: post-modernism, post-structuralism, and political correctness. Its personalities identify as both conservatives and liberals, and is a regular Who's Who of iconoclasts: Eric Weinstein, Sam Harris, Jonathan Haidt, Dave Rubin, Ben Shapiro, Steven Pinker, Carl Benjamin, and even podcaster par excellence, Joe Rogan.

These people can definitely debate, or at least foster a reasonable debate, but they are not more notably intelligent nor entertaining than others who think the same way, they were just in the right place at the right time when the term was coined because, in reality, there is no Intellectual Dark Web; it was just a provocative idea of a Lefty magazine article bemoaning the high quality of the arguments raised against egalitarianism, which even normal thinkers can exploit. Whether the web actually exists or not, I'd still like to be part of it...
