(WATCH) Jordan Peterson: Why Do Elites Like Socialism?

Rebel Staff

Dr. Jordan Peterson joined the Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro, Michael Knowles, Andrew Klavan, and Jeremy Boreing to discuss the alliance of collectivists and academia. 

Dr. Peterson explained how the rapid growth of university faculties is resulting in lower pay for adjunct professors, who feel powerless and trapped in a rigged game. This leads to a feeling of resentment conducive to the jealousy inherent within socialistic ideologies.

To answer the fundamental question posed here – elites like socialism because under socialistic regimes “they presume to know what’s best for everybody”… The fact that socialism has never worked, anywhere it has been tried, does not deter them… Hence once again the definition of “madness”… And given history, do not for one minute believe that you are talking to a “rational” person when you are talking to a self-proffesed socialist… And that’s history, and that’s reality…

I agree Maurice, Jordan Peterson has much more flexibility this way. I think politics would stifle him.

Dr. Jordan Peterson for PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA!!!!!!

What an absolute waste of a brilliant mind! We need JP right where he is. All we need to do to improve the political situation in Canada immeasurably is to replace Trudeau with a pet rock.

Peterson is spot on.

Damn, Peterson is good. Thanks for the heads up. I’m going to listen to the full version. It looks like a good round table of critical thinkers.
