I think Doc hit the nail on the head. DCP desperately wants his faithful followers (5?) to think he is a polymath when he clearly isn't. His blog posts scream out "look at me, I'm really smart. Please observe me waxing philosophical as I easily move from subject to subject, imbuing a thirsty public with living water that only a polymath like me can provide ..... " He isn't what he wants the world to perceive (few are) and so he lifts the thoughts from a place that he thinks is so generic that it really can't be attributed to anyone, like wiki articles. He probably generously used the encyclopedia britanica when he was a kid, like a lot of kids did, when he was doing his assignments in school. Too bad the internet allows Lemmie, Tom and Doc to discover his secrets.

Plagiarism is a serious charge to make against a professor. This thread includes cases where Peterson has really copy-pasted extended passages with trivial revisions. My concern here is that I think it takes away from those serious cases to mix them up with doubtful cases of a few words like this one. For cases like this one it might be better to have another thread.

It's a bit like reading Hugh Nibley: some of the comparaisons are striking, some trivial.
