Show Notes:
[1:00] Jordan Peterson kicks off the conversation by asking why and how Matthew McConaughey wrote his book Greenlights.
[4:00] Matthew realized he needed to write the book himself without a ghostwriter as initially planned and dig back into his journals as a form of necessary reflection on the past.
[6:00] Matthew’s old journals revealed their common thread through all the stories, poems, and bumper stickers. That common thread was the creation of good things in life through mindset or action “Greenlights.”
[12:00] Jordan talks about his initial response after reading Matthew’s book and how his expectations were changed.
[14:00] Matthew talks about his solo trips when starting to create the structure of his book. Jordan comments that this was a book written by a celebrity that did not really focus on the traditional parts of being a celebrity (very family-focused and foundational). Matthew states, “When we were editing the book, I found that the more personal the stories became, the more relatable they seemed to become, to the human condition, and that was my hope.”
[18:00] Jordan and Matthew revisit the African trip, chasing dreams and having the same exact dream multiple times over the span of many years.
[24:00] What was the personal impact on Matthew during his trip to Africa where he got to strip away the identity we all know him for and exist as something else? Jordan comments that very often, people confuse their reputation with who they really are, and they start to act as a representation of their reputation instead of themselves; it’s an easy trap to fall into.
[22:00] Matthew discusses dealing with the pitfalls of fame. Matthew covers his changing relationship with his mother due to success.
[25:00] Jordan B. Peterson asks Matthew McConaughey about some of his acting work in True Detective and playing dark characters. “How do you play a dark role very well without letting the darkness invade you?”
[32:00] Matthew talks about the positive aspects of the sometimes tense relationship with his father and having a childhood that balanced love and hardship directed from the same people.
[37:00] Jordan and Matthew continue talking about going deeper into the psychology of a dark character like Rustin Cole on True Detective
[45:30] Matthew expanded on the short-term effects of initial fame.
[51:30] Matthew and Jordan discuss the long-term effects of fame.
[55:00] Jordan points out, “If flawed people were incapable of creativity, we would have no creativity.”
[1:03:00] How Matthew and Jordan first became friends.
[1:07:30] Matthew shares a comical review of his own book written as if Jordan was the one reviewing it.

  • Matthew 'look at me' McConaughey is soft power (like the rest of his 'star' class) for the police State and the transnational capitalist class that directs it. Every time I go to GooTube for something (I wish people like David Martin would ditch GooTube), I see there on the right side of the page, McConaughey. It's McConaughey, McConaughey, McConaughey. I guess he's good branding for fascist covid 19 propaganda. Check out Del Bigtree's takedown of this 'star' on my Bitchute channel ("Arby").

  • Mr. Peterson, I think enough time has been already spent talking about self. We've been talking about self since we've been able to talk. Is there anything else in the Universe worthy of the same amount of time a selfish human race dedicated to itself? I'm only asking because I cannot find any difference between us when we first started talking about ourselves and us talking about ourselves today.

  • There is a time , a time where you'll understand those lines and their purpose. In those times you'll begin to understand why you where born and for what intended way. You might feel used and while its true, it was for something beyond your great grand , huge savoir. It was so you could finally accomplish the will of the one that no one speak about. The same that One would deem ridicule to speak about. The same that actually made you through the most vile individual. Made to touch the sky, enteangled in a net. Yet never been more free than you are. Now from the tree of thee, made without a soul but built by the SOUL. What are you willing to do ? What ARE YOUR WILL.

  • I want to hate mathew so much. He is part of everything wrong with society. The super coastal elite in Hollywood are fake, horrible people ,for the most part. But I listen to him talk and I'm amazed. He has great insight and just another human being trying to figure out this life. You cant hste on that. I give it up to him. Hes been out promoting his book and shows he is willing to talk. Despite all the criticism, he will talk to anyone on the left or the right

When we interview celebrities as intellectuals, we put a crown on a dung hill.

Mine has been the Soldier/Sailor/Biker/Trucker Howe I’ve always been a voracious reader and was blessed with a Classical education at the hands of Benedictine Nuns for which I will be forever grateful. Great to see you Jordan, may God continue to Bless you. From deep in the heart of my Beloved Texas.

  • Absolutely brilliant discussion. Amazing to listen to and it I just wanted the discussion to continue. One thing though.... Getting towards the end I'm sure I saw Matthew's naked knee poke up. I pictured him sat there in his underpants and shirt like on Anchor Man. It tickled me to think of him sat there having such an in-depth conversation whilst in his underwear. I wander if he tucks his shirt in? Oh, how I've missed you Jordan Peterson.

  • I enjoyed this conversation. I cannot help but think of another actor and another project that I find extremely interesting: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn + Robert Downey Jr. = Robert Downey Jr. is at a mature age where he will, I believe, be much more selective in choosing characters that he would portray. There is no need to lay out his creative abilities. Alan Turing + Benedict Cumberbatch = The Imitation Game 8 out of 10 on IMDB. Alan Turing was truly a great hero. Many people were not aware of his enormous influence in the war and the future of our communication. Huge. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was a huge hero who captured the truth behind ideas that were sold as wonderful but only led to selfish cruelty and suffering. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn + Robert Downey Jr. =. ???????? Why not see what you, Dr. Peterson, can produce or influence to produce a film just as amazing with another huge star that can also relate to spending time in a facility, despite his prison time as a much less horrible and debilitating experience. Is there another actor that can begin to understand the psychology of at least a portion of the life of Solzhenitsyn? I hope you consider this idea seriously. I’m sure there have been others mentioning potential for such a film. I started to listen to Gulag Archipelago. I hope to finish it sometime but I must also maintain the great balance I need in my life with the family I cherish. Hope your family has the strength from the Lord to continue all the good works y’all can do to uplift others in the search for understanding and truth. God bless! Jonathan

    • @Jared Schmidt your many word obfuscate the fact that you never once specified my absurdity let alone confront it, all you did was label it and affirm it as so.

      Uncle KerrUncle Kerr2 timmar sedan
    • @Jared Schmidt Most people consider consensus as truth but in reality consensus is just a matter of geography so when you leave a certain geography you end up confused because the old consensus is no longer present. We need to find a better way to evaluate ideas as since the dawn of time man believes what suits him so you find a teacher who already accommodates your preferred mechanism for self development. This is why Jordan is popular, he accommodates and excuses the workaholic type and they flock to him and defend him with the same vigor they'd defend themselves failing to realise they are simply defending themselves but pretending they are defending him.

      Uncle KerrUncle Kerr2 timmar sedan
    • @Jared Schmidt The amount of lies inside us is generally underestimate and this is the main problem and blockade to all true personal development, I don't know you but I wonder if you will ask yourself honestly if this applies to you? It's an extremely uncomfortable realisation and you might need to take a week off work afterwards. Here are some of the most common types of lies I used to tell myself. 1. A lie of magnitude, telling myself something was less or more than it was in reality, exaggerating a virtue and down playing a flaw. 2. Lies of chronological geography, pretending that a circumstance of one time frame applied to another- I might view myself as a nice guy and superimpose that conclusion on to a different time frame where the evidence contradicts it. 3. Lies of applying the general to the specific or the specific to the general, and this is what you do with me. I have made a specific claim that a hair transplant is a sign of vanity and vanity is a problem in humanity which causes is problems and reduces the quality of our mental health. This is a specific claim which may or may not be logical but you address me generally and say I am illogical without ever contending with the specifics of what I say. This is just an imagination because it's very comforting to us and makes us feel a bit better for a short time so we tend to protect our illusions vigorously not realising that they are infact they are the source of our problems. All the best in your life but no amount of effort or apparent intellect can make a lie into a truth and we can only develop via the truth. I can't handle the truth! It's brutal.

      Uncle KerrUncle Kerr6 timmar sedan
    • @Jared Schmidt Logic is a fantasy, everyone considers what they do logical. What makes you think I want to be taken seriously? I want to have good mental health and since this is so rare it's not reasonably to hope to find it in conventional and popular ideas such as Jordan Peterson. My equation that a hair transplant equals vanity and vanity equals misery can only be evaluated by some who has experienced an absence of vanity, a vain person considers their vanity normal because the have no precedent for it absence. I understand why you consider what I say as nonsense but this is built on the assumptions that conventional wisdom holds water and I see no evidence for that. Ordinary thinking gets ordinary results- misery. Jordan is ordinary dressed up in sophisticated language but the results are ordinary- temporary small improvements to mental health with mandatory regression into poor mental health. His life proves that last statement true. It's extremely hard for us to let go of ideas we have a lot of our hopes invested in, this is why you try to characterize me and a fruit cake, this is a habitual human behavior you will see everywhere is as innately human as anything else. It's very difficult to over come it, it is very difficult to attain good mental health which is why Jordan is famous- he gives us a few rules to follow painting the picture of hard work and sacrifice what really it exactly what we wish for, someone to take the edge off the difficulties give us an easy solution dressed up as a sacrifice and a means to distract ourselves.

    • @Jared Schmidt You have not addressed anything I said. Your goal seems to be to paint me as stupid with out ever responding to the details of my points. This is characteristic of an intellectual bully, how's self worth is identified with their smarts and thus attack others to augment themselves. I don't this sometimes, it's very tempting and hard to avoid but that doesn't make it nutritious, it's still a problem to be overcome. It can only be over come by honestly contending that it is a reality.

  • WHITE SUPREMACY? YES, BUT... NO! EVERYTHING absolutely EVERYTHING humanity enjoys nowadays: from Socrates, Democritus, Aristoteles, to Kant, Hegel intellectuality to all the extraordinary art, Michel Angelo, Da Vinci, van Gogh, Velazco, to all the classical music, Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Gershwin, to all the big Rock bands, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Queen, Pink Floyd, to all the physics, Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Einstein, Bohr, Shannon, Turing, Ma. Curie, to trains, cars, planes, transistors, computers, smartphones, movies, Bell Labs, NASA, Pixar, internet, atomic energy, vaccines, the pill, penicillin, to defeating fascism (2xWWWs + Berlin Wall), to democracy, civil rights, freedom of speech, not to mention to the post Mao-Stalin communist´s massacres and famines RECOVERY in China, S. Korea, Japan, Taiwan etc., EVERYTHING absolutely EVERYTHING has been done and enabled by very white western men from the Judeo-Christian capitalist culture. (I repeat) EVERYTHING absolutely EVERYTHING!!! It is UNDENIABLE! I am brown, and I have two options: admire these overwhelming historical and scientific truths and be grateful, this is why our parents came to America, OR fill my heart and brain with ENVY and hate to destroy it and "justify" our failure and mediocrity. Even resentful Marx was white!!! PS.: adorable black people had been peacefully fundamental to it in the last 4-200 years. We, brown, came after it was all here, and we suck what our socialist fanatic countries were and still are incapable of doing. This is why WE Latinos (and Islamists…?) want to invade America and grab all of it. For free. EVERYTHING absolutely EVERYTHING!!! Now what? Kill and "cancel" history and reality? Good luck on that.
