    I've been meaning to share some videos by Jordan Peterson, a Canadian professor and an absolutely inspiring individual, who sparked the conversation on free speech in Canada. He also posts a lot of his lectures on his YouTube channel.

    To my delight David Rubin has him on the show this week and the first video is out. I'll be posting all of them this week and I would advice people to give it a watch.

    The sound quality is a bit off, but you can hear Peterson just fine.



    If this interests you then I would urge you to watch his lecture on Personality, which is more generally about psychology, or watch his lecture on Maps of Meaning, which is profoundly interesting.

    His fight on Bill C-16 is great to follow too and it is heartwarming to see him tackle this issue the way he does.

    I love the Rubin Report. I haven't gotten around to watching these exact vids, but I am aware of Jordan Peterson's struggle and the fight for free speech he is putting up.

    This is probably one of the best conversations Rubin had in a while; Peterson is such a force and thought-provoking man. His ending statement of the second part is the most genuine and powerful statement I've ever seen on the Rubin Report.

    "Oh, let's tell the country that enshrined non absolute freedom of speech into their charter that they aren't protecting their freedom of speech absolutely"

    I'll be shocked if peterson sticks with this. Given that we've already agreed on just about every other measure of this, he's fighting an enormously uphill legal battle. Die upon your own hill, and all that, but he probably should have started dying upon his own hill about 30 odd years ago.

    Well, absolute freedom of speech is in fact enshrined in the Canadian charter. It can then be limited, under section 1, but that turns on whether the limitation is reasonable.

    The debate at the University of Toronto happened. If you're planning on watching this: get ready for a whole mixed bag of feelings.
