    His entire philosophy is very... Cult-ish? Has anyone heard of his "DEFOOING" practice? I don't think that's how it's spelt, but he basically says to ignore anyone that criticises you, and to remove them from your life. That's the exact kind of behaviour that cults encourage.
    Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion man.

    Yeah, I looked into him more, and I'm convinced he's not intellectually honest. And maybe cultish as well. He has this anti-women thing going on; and I didn't just hear two words and say 'misogynist', I heard him out and decided that basically he just picks at the weaknesses of certain personality types which happen to be more often female than male, and ignores the weaknesses of certain other personality types which are more often male than female.

    I would say less. Much, much less.

    The Young Turks got mad at him recently because he challenged Ana Kasparian.

    So, there has been a bit of controversy, but I'm not entirely sure if he just attracts a lot of criticism for his non-PC views on society, or because he genuinely is intellectually dishonest/ a would-be cult leader.

    I lean towards thinking that he is just a harmless crackpot convinced of the holy power of the market.

    Opinions?
    The market and holy power are anathema to one another.
