Walk for 5 minutes in the courtyard where Peterson was shutdown. The audio will loop in case any details are missed. And of course, pay attention.
In March of 2017 there was chaos in the acoustic community on the McMaster University campus.
Dr. Jordan Peterson, a man speaking in favor of free speech, was denied his platform by a mob asserting their free speech over his. A setting for discourse, for the exchange of ideas, was replaced by a hostile environment by a group that claims to be about openness and tolerance. I have returned Peterson’s voice to the space from which it was stripped three years ago.
I did so not to reassert his political views, but to pass along a piece of wisdom from one of his lectures on an Ancient Egyptian myth. A piece of wisdom that all should hear. A piece of wisdom that would otherwise fall on many deaf ears as a result of the unjust smearing of Jordan Peterson’s name.
