I'm shocked so many people fall for his shit lmao, his arguments really never have much real substance to them.

To put it in the most simple argumentative terms:

He always hits strong with a punch of pathos. He makes the listener feel good about themselves, and more likely to be receptive to what he says. Not shocking seeing as how his fanbase seems to be "sadboys".

He backs up his claim with psychology based logos. He has a background in psychology and he equates the philosophical issues he speaks about to psychological concepts.

Meanwhile, he tries to pass himself off as a philosopher and acts like all people and communities have the same opportunities as each other, acting as though everything bad people experience is simply just "psychological blockers" and how you just need to "grind" for what you want.

Most of his points are stupid and he lacks ethos as a philosopher and his stupidity in trying to pass himself off as one makes me question his psychological ethos.

I know a guy who seriously idolizes him and buys all his self help books (that's basically what they are) and it's annoying as fuck. He's always preaching about how to be a man and regurgitating Jordan Peterson shit and I'm just like, "dude you're idolizing another man and attempting to live how he tells you to live." That's like the least fucking alpha thing in the world

Considering that "philosopher" has no real credentials, it's not that he tries to "pass himself off as one" so much as he is one.

First, he said "be a man," not "be an alpha." Second, men can listen to other men. Stop promoting toxic masculinity!

Lol buying self help books and regurgitating what they say as if it's your own knowledge is the least manly thing in the world

The biggest thing I know about him: people who think he's a god are just as annoying as those he triggers.
