How interesting! I don’t know much about Peterson except by knowing some of the people who enjoy and defend his work. I must say, they don’t reflect well on him.
At least you have a noble reason for discovering on-line writing and Medium. My own story is a little funnier.
I came to on-line writing through science. A buddy of mine has a brother who bought into flat earth nonsense, so I started researching it and then coming up with at-home experiments my friend and I could do to show his brother that the earth must be a sphere.
We didn’t have a lot of luck with the brother, but I started writing about the topic. One thing led to another, and voila.
But I wish I’d been writing about Peterson. He’s more infuriating than flat earthers.
