Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I will agree with you about Peterson's bias about greatest evils. The Jungian archetypes, Campbell's Hero's Journey are indeed superficial... if there is nothing to change in your comfortable life.

But the embraced women, minorities may surprise progressive triangulators again by finding, hoping or voting for a better life than offered by the decaying, ever defrauded welfare state as the singularly alpha provider and protector.

Young men are particularly interested in getting life. As ever, their majority struggles to fetch social power (while young women achieve it easily now). The dominant effect of #MeToo is to compound that inhibition for taking initiative, finding own social place, breaking out of obedient quiet desperation. Peterson has little competition for attention of those men.
