Jordan Peterson: A Conversation Between Student and Teacher

Rebel Staff

Professor Jordan Peterson of the University of Toronto has quickly become one of the most articulate and powerful advocates for free speech and intellectual diversity on campus, and beyond. In this wide-ranging one hour conversation, we go beyond the usual soundbites.

Professor Peterson talks about the small but growing movement to encourage more diversity of thought in universities; defends capitalism (while acknowledging its flaws); explains why disciplines like the humanities are still valuable, and so much more.

Settle in for an inspirational, thought provoking hour.

Too convoluted; ‘Marxism’ = SLAVERY.
“From each according to his ability, to each according to their needs!”
THAT is simply SLAVERY defined; no property rights: you make, they take.
Such perpetual gang-rights extortion always leads to individual slavery.
Communism is simply gang-rights SLAVERY, where individuals can’t own stuff.
Our ancestors should have made that a tad more clear in the public schools.

An in depth, hour interview like this one would be a great idea for a Sunday afternoon program.

Great interview. Any luck in convincing the professor to join the rebel as a regular contributor?

Terrific interview, Jay. Wisdom, logic and common sense, which seems to be so uncommon these days. Thanks.

During ’70’s @ U of Waterloo humanities reluctant to use “local” word proc. etc but did, esp. after Oxford asked Wat comp-sci to digital their dictionary. Still shunned STEP students who tried “the arts”. Took(seriously) 2nd yr lit & usual non-tech avg. boost was reversed incl an F+, F+! on a mid term. Who’s more wired today? You’re welcome.

Yep we need more teaching and less preaching.

Wow. one of the most interesting interviews I have seen on The Rebel since it’s inception. This guy’s course should be mandatory for every student at his University and everyone, whether you agree with him or not, should listen to this interview or visit his website and listen to his ideas. My son took his course at Laurentian University and he said it was one of the most interesting courses he took in his 4 yrs there. Excellent interview Jay.

Terrific interview Jay. An hour well spent listening to an actual intellectual. This country needs a lot more of Jordan and a lot less of JT. Well Done !

Diversity of thought is discouraged in our public schools & many organized groups including religious. Media being the most visual seems to think all you need is different coloured presenters & the public won’t notice they all sing the same tune. An enlightened public has MSN suffering but the government is poised to bail yet another money pit to server their purposes. Considering the financial & legislative power they have over schools, JrK to PS this will be a tough but worthy fight.
