I am an Artist currently training at an Art Academy. I left University as I slowly discovered, the prevailing philosophy was based in Marxism: Intersectional Feminism, Critical Theory, and the sort, which categorizes my art, my artistic ambitions, and the Western Canon as bourgeois, patriarchal, misogynist, and racist.
If it weren't for my reading of Nietzsche and Marcus Aurelius, who together inspire a philosophy of radical individualism, and stoicism, I probably would have been more in line with the crowd. Shortly thereafter I discovered Jordan Peterson's work online, which integrated a large amount knowledge I was interested in, but didn't know how to obtain.
Peterson was my gateway drug to the rest of the Intellectual Dark Web, which formed a year later.
