It takes a nation to protect the nation
Jordan Peterson is an exceptional thinker, one of the few anti-Left academics, and someone who has dared to stick his head above the parapet and bravely take a stand.
Jordan Bernt Peterson (born June 12, 1962) is a Canadian clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto. His main areas of study are the psychology of religious and ideological belief, and the assessment and improvement of personality and performance. He authored Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief in 1999.
Peterson grew up in Fairview, Alberta. He earned a B.A. in political science in 1982 and a B.A. in psychology in 1984, both from the University of Alberta, and his Ph.D in clinical psychology from McGill University in 1991. He remained at McGill University as a post-doctoral fellow for two years before moving to Massachusetts, where he worked as an assistant and associate professor in the psychology department at Harvard University. In 1997, he moved to the University of Torontoas a full professor.
In 2016, Peterson released a series of videos on his YouTube channel in which he criticized the Canadian government's Bill C-16. The videos sparked an ongoing controversy that received significant media coverage.

What's incredible is that it is 20 years since Prof. Sokal exposed the lunacy of the postmodernist/poststucturalist mumbo jumbo.
Sokal not only showed these academics will accept any mumbo jumbo in a peer-reviewed academic article provided it aligned with their ideological bias and groupthink. Some years later he went on to write two books exposing them
Sokal's 1st book (1998) https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1861970749
Sokal's 2nd book (2008): https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0199561834
Thus, Sokal was the Jordan Peterson of his day. But it made no difference. The postmodernist anti-enlightenment loons of academia continued to fill the heads of students with mumbo-jumbo, despite a famous scientist exposing them as charlatans.
Interestingly, Jordan Peterson kept quiet for 20 years about this mumbo jumbo (he must have known about Sokal 1998 and 2008 and earlier). Since Peterson's field was not so infested with pomo, he could keep his head down and proceed (and its clear his colleagues were also aware of it, but were not going to take the stand he took).
Unless there is a collapse in the university/deficit-spending Ponzi scheme, I predict that in 2028 another Sokal/Peterson will be time to emerge. And the pomo "scholars" will just drive over that bump in the road too.
It was precisely my hostility to the indoctrination of students with this mumbo-jumbo that led me to abandon academia in the early 1990s. I could see I would get nowhere, as these politically-correct pro-equality anti-discrimination loons were so biased that anyone who did not agree with their mumbo jumbo would get nowhere in academia. Even when their own biases were pointed out to them they would claim they were fundamentally opposed to prejudice. I've never experienced any work environment as corrupt as academia.
Now "unconscious bias" training has leaked out into the wider world of work. And by "unconscious bias" they mean "indoctrinating staff and students with the lies of which we approve".
The interventions by Sokal and Peterson are only needed because the academic philosophers ignore the irrational mumbo-jumbo of the Leftist crowd. I guess these philosophers are genuinely frightened of losing their jobs and facing accusations of Nazism. I remember one mathematician/logician who taught me back in the 1980s - for espousing the works of Hayek he was branded a Nazi on campus. This was always said behind his back (never mind he was screwing the only student of his who was Jewish). Imagine if he dared to actually engage with and publicly destroy the pomo charlatans.
To their shame, in choosing to concern themselves with how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, these academic philosophers across the West from the 1970s onwards put their publicly-funded salaries above their need to serve the wider society.
This is a must-see video. Its a bit abstract and hard to follow in places, but well worth the effort.
