Professor Peterson makes some extremely important observations & admonitions in this Q&A.
First, the typical left-wing student is more like your neighbor’s 19 year old kid than they are a hardcore Marxist revolutionary. They are more clueless than cause motivated; until they get in with a frenzied mob.
Second, we can’t win a battle of ideas unless there is a debate to be had. And there can’t be a debate when everything is on fire and there’s blood in the streets.
So, our first goal has got to be peace as opposed to winning the argument. Don’t allow the malevolent tendencies that exist within all of us to dominate. That is how things spiral out of control, fast!
