Yes I looked that up
His answer was very wise
Perhaps partly owing to his age and his familiarity with Hitler and Stalin / Mao philosophies
His answer is similar to the reference Ben Shapiro makes about “Social Justice” - ie “Justice doesn’t need any qualifier”
I find his comparison of the two principles of “The rights of man” between USA and French Revolution really quite telling.
Peterson follows the line further and says that what we have is not great - but it’s the best we can do - there ISN’T anything better !
He says “In the West we have a principle that The State is regulated by the Principles of the individual”
That is what we are losing due to the excesses of the EU.
He is an advocate of taking personal responsibility for your own self as a starting point towards " a fuller life "
Listen to him explain how the jounalists are censoring themselves, Politicians are censoring themselves because of the bullying tactics employed on the Internet. "Conservatives won’t even come out and admit to being conservative "
I think a good many of us have seen the intentions behind the EU and that is why we are insisting that Brexit is done properly. Some say that the UN have a similar Agenda of “Control from the centre” - and some call it “Agenda 21”
Neither are we alone - this is happening throughout Europe and many in the US see Donald Trump as a salvation from this Control from the centre.
I don’t think it would be Peterson argues in his book that “we live in hierarchies and have done so for at least 300 million years as demostrated by the fact that Lobsters do so as well by exactly the same mechanisms and it was 300 million years since we diverged from lobsters on an evolutionary scale”
“Do we have the right to insist that OTHERS be changed ?”
I think we have to be vigilant and argue against “Social Justice” demands vehemently - as Peterson says - “Be brave” - debate them - show them up for what they are.
He says elsewhere that it is easy to spot excess on the Right - because it speaks of Racial Superiority - but HARD to define excess on the Left because it is hard to see where the line should be drawn.
His arbitrary but seemingly reasonable positon is that the line should be drawn when people start demanding “Equality of Outcome” !
And that claims of “Gender inequlity due to male patriarchy”, Racial disadvantages due to prejudice etc are excessive draws towards demands of “equality of outcome” - Equality of opportunity is great “equality of outcome” cannot be achieved by Just means - only bby excessive and brutal central control
