    Jordan Peterson and Bret Weinstein are incredibly intellectual people. Listening to them 2 speak is mind blowing at times.

    Hits the nail on the head with regards to the psychology of Left Vs Right when it comes to immigration, identity, and nationalism.

    A couple of nicely done videos on astronomical scale. It's something we're easily misinformed about because extreme compression of scale is necessary to create an image. We've all seen diagrams of the solar system with the planets next to each other on a single screen or page of a book, for example. A book or webpage showing correct scale would be impractically large. But video can do the job.

    Solar system:



    Solar system plus nearest stars:



    The scale is given on the second one - approximately 1/200,000,000,000. At that scale the sun is a small pea and Earth is too small to visible to the naked eye, but it's about the largest scale that's at all practical to use for a model including the nearest stars. Even at 1/200,000,000,000 scale, you need a car and plenty of time.

    I think he makes a good case for universal basic income (UBI).
