Jordan Peterson spoke at Queens University in Canada on March 5. The short clip above shows how the event was disrupted, and Peterson's response afterwards.
He fearlessly says what every reasonable person is thinking when they see this sort of thing, but he says it much better than most of us would be able to.
Jordan Peterson is, simply put, a warrior. The weapons of his warfare are words, ideas and logic, coupled with his knowledge of history and human nature. I have tremendous respect for him because of the principled stand he has taken in Canada against political correctness and "compelled speech" by the Canadian government.
The next video is of the entire Queens University presentation. It's nearly two hours long (I watched the whole thing), and it shows the continuing disturbance at the event by neo-Marxist provocateurs. But they fail to stop it.
As the beliggerants are outside, pounding on the windows to the room (actually breaking some), Peterson says, "That's the sound of the Barbarians pounding at the gates."
He wasn't joking. It was an apt and sobering metaphor.
Invading Barbarians, at the gates of Rome, eventually broke through in 410. Mayhem, pillaging, destruction, and mass murder ensued. The once-great Roman empire would be no more. But, yes, Rome fell from within first.
After the event at Queens University, Professor Peterson went to Australia. The following interview in Australia gives you some insights into Peterson, and his stand against "compelled language." This man is on the front lines of a critically important cultural battle.
