Dr. Jordan Peterson has been all over the news the last year or so. Ever since drawing the ire of the left for having the gall to tell the truth, his star has been rising. Now, he’s a true intellectual star who’s making headway in reaching the masses. Even mainstream media can’t keep him down.
While tackling the topic of free speech, Dr. Peterson was on top of his game. He framed free speech as more than just a small portion of our 1st Amendment. He painted it as an absolute necessity.
“If you don’t believe in free speech you don’t believe in the implicit divinity of mankind. You don’t believe in the sovereignty of the individual.”
Watch a compilation video of Dr. Peterson discussing the topic here:
“If you don’t believe in free speech you don’t believe in the implicit divinity of mankind,” he said. “You don’t believe in the sovereignty of the individual.”
The video above captures a mere portion of the vast wisdom Peterson has been dishing out lately. It’s worth the next 20 minutes of your life to spend hearing, the next few days to contemplate, and the rest of your life to put into action. Yes, it’s that profound.
