Nor are Charlie Kirk and Coleman Hughes, or Donald Trump Jr. and Douglas Murray. Some are obviously more interested in the true free exchange of ideas and the unwavering pursuit of truth than others. The divide goes beyond mere personal opinion or conviction and extends to motive, self-awareness , and, of course, depth of thought. Even more offensive than labeling these people intellectual (Rogan and Rubin are intellectual? Be serious) is to claim that 61% of them are liberal by self-identification. Harris is the worst offender of this by far; he can’t stop talking about how he’s a classical liberal.
All I’m saying is that we shouldn’t pretend these things aren’t the case when they are. On the one hand, members of the IDW complained about people who hurled charges of Islamophobia or anti-Arab bigotry—slurs that might, after all, stifle debate about terrorism or Middle East politics. But they didn’t seem too concerned about people who hurled charges of anti-Semitism in ways that might stifle debate about Israel’s treatment of Palestinians or Israel’s influence on American foreign policy. Lehmann, who talks slowly and carefully, with a scientific precision, describes herself as “centrist.” But like many of Quillette’s ilk, her views are not easy to locate on the political spectrum. Although she calls herself a feminist—she cites maternity leave and other “policies that focus on women’s role as carers” as issues important to her—she is very much out of the feminist mainstream, as her first forays into opinion writing demonstrated.
The passion of youth may be drawn to the left which highlights social anomalies and injustices. The arrogance of youth is to assume that no one else sees it . The impatience of youth promotes forced “solutions” as the only possible way forward, and the blindness of youth is disregard for the wider consequences.
Meet the Renegades of the Intellectual Dark Web | The New York Times
It is extremely poor, it makes me distrust journalism as a profession, and the only reason I find myself engaging with it is to try in my small way to push back on its shallowness and reflex groupthink. It comes down to a discussion of ‘human nature’ which Leftists/Marxists/Socialists abhore and the IDW embraces. Yes, his fans may be somewhat annoying occasionaly, and there are a bunch of racists who are searching for any support they can find for their stupid theories, but the first are people who never had serious help from their communities and the second can use Peterson only if they ignore his core message. The folly of the ageing leftists is that they never outgrow the arrogance, impatience and blindness, while their passion has morphed into tired faux outrage, puritanical joylessness, and the snideness of shrivelled souls. They would always sooner run someone’s life than have a sensible discussion, which is one of the reasons why the woke appear so intellectually weak. But the irrational anger directed towards Peterson for simply telling young men to grow up and take responsibility seems to be based on darker motives.
Today they have left their jobs, lost many of their friends and endangered their reputations. I was meeting with Sam Harris, a neuroscientist; Eric Weinstein, a mathematician and managing director of Thiel Capital; the commentator and comedian Dave Rubin; and their spouses in a Los Angeles restaurant to talk about how they were turned into heretics. A decade ago, they argued, when Donald Trump was still hosting “The Apprentice,” none of these observations would have been considered taboo.
- Those who positioned themselves to be focused entirely on the IDW and its counter-narrative efforts against the mainstream and legacy media became unable to contribute to the discussion in a meaningful way.
- Politically correct academia, the mainstream media, that lot.
- I think traditional leftists, like the author, need to get a little angrier in the face of the untruths and abuses of Critical Theorists and their policy requests.
- Why does it seem to be nearly impossible for a journalist in almost any rag out there to present a fair and accurate picture of Jordan Peterson?
- It is for this very reason why our institutions are failing us.

The brass standard here is Cathy Newman’s flailing attempt to interrogate Peterson in a 2018 interview for Channel 4 News. The interview went viral on the back of his running rings around her. Newman’s subsequent attempt to blame the humiliation on “men with an agenda” was as fatuous and complacent as her interview style.
And those campus politics, now on a high street near you, in nowheresville. Yet there are pitfalls to this audience-supported model. This probably helps explain why some people in this group talk constantly about the regressive left but far less about the threat from the right. The intellectual dark web is a label which has been applied to some commentators who oppose identity politics, political correctness, and cancel culture in higher education and the news media within Western countries.
What Is On The Dark Web
Harris is centre left and hates Trump with a passion but he also hates identity politics, which seems a reasonable position to me…. The only thing we need to be excruciatingly aware of is that in their failure they don’t manage to take down our entire decent society with them for that generation. Decent humans will be able to rebuild free society but there can be tragic losses for a time in that temporary collapse of civilisation. Western democracies that are built on free choice and individual worth must stand firm and not give Neo-Marxists and anarchists any quarters in our defence of what we have achieved. It’s not perfect admittedly but that’s why we thrive every day to make it better for our children and not tear it down to satisfy the Left’s animalistic impulses.

Whats Dark Web
Indeed, in many ways, the original members of this informal alliance against the dogmatic arrogance, general corruption, and cleverly-veiled coerciveness of the legacy media have been unable to escape the very forces they had sought to oppose. One need not doubt that some of the dark web’s critiques are made in good faith and based on valid interpretations of social science data. Progressives and leftists can and should deal with these claims on their merits and faults, both in moral and empirical terms. But they should not indulge the intellectual dark web’s veneer of novelty or appeals to transpolitical reason. These thinkers ought not to be allowed to pretend that its ideas are, historically speaking, anything other than conservative.
Brooks concedes that one should not be an “uncritical apologist for everything that happened in the years after Lenin arrived at the Finland Station” — which is big of him — but he contrasts the reactionary politics of the IDW with his own dream of Communism with a human face. Indeed, this sort of Socialist wish-thinking was once likened by the Polish philosopher Leszek Kolakowski to trying to cook a “dish of fried snowballs”. Leninism leads to famine, terror and forced labour camps — even if Jordan Peterson and the IDW say so.
