“A harmless man is not a good man. A good man is a very, very dangerous man…”

“A harmless man is not a good man. A good man is a very, very dangerous man who has it under voluntary control” is a saying that has been printed on many images. Canadian psychologist, author, and media commentator Dr. Jordan Peterson said this on The Jocko Podcast on November 1, 2017.
 
“Very, very dangerous man” (as said in the interview) is often given as just “very dangerous man.”  The statement about harmless (or weak) men not being good men has become well known.

Peterson has described himself as a classic British liberal and a traditionalist.

So many soft, weak, harmless men seem to have been really been triggered by this…
Just because people have insecurities doesn’t mean that anything that opposes you or challenges you is bad.
Love the quote, love the crybaby comments maybe more!

Jordan was a guest on Jock’s podcast in 2018 and in this clip they explore the idea that harmlessness is not good. Good men can harness their anger, accept that they have it but still decide to keep it in control.

You should be a monster.⁣
 
Everyone says, “Well, you should be harmless, virtuous, you shouldn’t do anyone any harm, you should sheath your competitive instinct. You shouldn’t try to win. You don’t want to be too aggressive. You don’t want to be too assertive.”⁣

No. Wrong. You should be a monster, an absolute monster, and then you should learn how to control it.⁣
