Jordan Peterson warns of EMP attack when discussing the psychology of communism (and fascism) in a video
Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson, generally known for conservative views, “Addresses Socialist Intellectuals” in this video from April 2018.
The video was made at a panel discussion or QA where he discusses why fascism is usually considered more morally objectionable than communism, Hitler worse than Stalin, and the Hammer and Sickle less objectionable than the swastika.
He makes the comment that the “right” likes hierarchy, and that the “left” serves those displaced by hierarchy, and notes that the extreme right is more likely to define only one group as chosen and entitled to subjugate all other groups. But communism as an egalitarian utopia has failed every time it is tried. And Russia – left from the Soviet Union – is still armed to the max.
At 10:50 in the video he mentions the possibility of electromagnetic pulse attack from a thermonuclear weapon (an E3), which he considers a risk from both Russia and North Korea, the latter being the absolute worst. "You're done" he warns.
What a discovery for Christmas night. And we have a president who seems to be unraveling quickly.

"E.M.P." -- short film shows what happens when a young couple is suddenly stranded in the mountains by an EMP event
“E.M.P” (19 minutes), directed by Sebastian Chapela Juy (Mental Paint films), who gave the film his own accolade in a comment on YouTube, dramatizes a fictitious EMP attack over California. The film is posted on YouTube by the director in April 2018 (after tensions with North Korea had reduced a bit after the Winter Olympics).
A young couple (Jacobelle Luongo and Andrew Marcia) are driving into the Sierra on a camping honeymoon trip when the radio dies, and so does the car. No one comes buy for help. Finally they encounter an ex-Ranger type (Trey Van Dyke) who explains what an electromagnetic pulse bomb is.
It is quite telling that the young couple had never heard of EMP. That’s one reason I blog about it!
They encounter a couple of locals, walking into one unlocked house. Pretty soon the inevitable guns appear and people die trying to survive. Just for water.
There is a sequel (4 minutes. Penny University), what would be working after an EMP event? A short list: You car if it was made before 1990; off-road vehicles; Vintage electronics – vacuum tube electronics of the 50s; basic motors without electronic controls (if not plugged in when struck); batteries; solar panels. This little add-on notes that a natural event is possible. Coronal mass ejections don't destroy electronics; an E1 pulse (from nuclear fission or some flux devices that the military has) does; the solar storm or thermonuclear weapon emits an E3.
Picture: Mine, near US 50, W of Sacramento, as I was driving to look at the output of a small wildfire on a September 2018 trip. I had a new rental car which would not work in this film,

A young woman from “Inform Overload” warns us “Dark Matter Hurricane Will Collide with Earth”.
Well, it has already started. A “stellar stream” or swarm of stars has been passing around us for some number of millennia, with gravity augmented by dark matter. And we have been too sinful to notice (to quote GLIL from the 1990s).
What we should pay attention to, however, is space weather, coronal mass ejections, and start making documentaries on it. Even at the Weather Channel.
