What a great guy, I just discovered him a few days ago, and he says some of the most rational and smart (sometimes very deep) things i've ever heard.
Check him out on youtube, If you're still young he might influence you in a very positive way.
Here's some great videos : - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbOeO_frzvg

Not to mention he openly fights the SJW movement despite getting warnings from the university of Toronto where he works for daring to speak out against that *****.

I don't know. The guy went on and on about how you have to have original thought and think for yourself. Then, he claimed the only way to do that is to read certain other people's books and also buy his 'workshop' thing.

There are very few actual original thoughts in the world and we really almost never think differently from those around us. We just pick the group we want to agree with. People are very social creatures that way, to the point where we barely even realize how much other people influence us constantly, and that's not, in itself, a bad thing. It's how we are. But luckily, you don't HAVE to be original to be a thoughtful and educated person. You just have to think about the things other people are telling you, make sure you get a wide variety of such outside thoughts and opinions so you have something to go on, and figure out for yourself which beliefs you want to support. I also disagree when he talks about things like 'your truth'. He should be saying 'your beliefs', as truth is truth, and doesn't change from one person to another.
