one word .. just try it .. use it .. share it .. discuss it here
Jordan Peterson is a Canadian psychologist. He is prolific in his online talks and discussions on moral philosophy. He explores all kinds of deep issues facing us today. He draws on all kinds of cultural and religious history.
His deeply authentic commitment to thinking and energetically telling the truth comes across like he’s a preacher, a modern secular preacher. You will easily find lots of his enthralling talks online.
Meanwhile here’s a starter for ten, an excerpt from a discussion where he urges us to choose to express and debate our truth as a good way to live as individuals and good for everyone else too. Click here for a transcript and the linked video from a discussion with Jordan Peterson’s clarion call.
This is relevant here because we think that equalism cannot happen unless we all find our voices in good conversation and debate – our own voices and other people’s voices too.
If such bold free expression sounds risky, he argues there are worse risks for us all if we choose to hold back:
“… it’s even less safe not to speak. It’s a balance of risks. Do you want to pay the price of being who you are … or do you want to pay the price for being a bloody serf?”
