Reply Krzysztof Klimczak says: June 8, 2018 at 4:18 am Giving up whatever he was supposed to be paid just so the speech could happen, what world we livin in nowadays…Love the diversity of the audience, from youngsters to grandpas <3 Reply j freed says: June 9, 2018 at 5:19 pm This is fascinating, it is free speech VS censorship in action.It's apparent Mrs. Agre-Grumblebutt didn't even note the context of Peterson's talk or the satirical tweet. She didn't know what she was doing and yet disturbingly she has the power to enforce her irresponsible, poor decision. She was cancelling a highly reputable academic talk at the Linfield auditorium, not a anti-Trans or anti-Jewish rally on the college grounds.The least she could have managed was a phone call or a clarification with Peterson. But would that small effort have made her feel unsafe? And to the at least 107 who don't understand, 'Grumblebutt' was satire. I'm characterizing Agre-Kippenham as irritable, insincere and thoughtless, and satire accomplishes this with a certain humour & non-literal license. Reply KelMaster Construction says: June 9, 2018 at 8:54 pm Dear Dr. Peterson, After viewing the first 15 minutes of your video, it has come to my attention that even a man of your great intellect can become somewhat childish in your approach to to current issue of which you are presenting. Given that the specific field of Psychology is your specialty, I would assume that you will be able to recognize what I am about to hypothesize. Before moving forward, I would like to make clear, that I do not make this point with a light heart or with a malice intent. In fact, the desired outcome I hope for is quite the opposite, in that I believe that once you hear my suggestion, you may see the benefits to my proposal. I understand I am just another lone voice among thousands of opinions, yet I do hope you mange to consider my observation. As with any relationship, we as humans, encounter difficulties in communicating to each other, and often we must cater our responses to the recipients in order get the desired outcome or to at least get the dialog flowing in a productive manor. While I am quite confident that this concept does not need to be explained to you, your "tweet" , (that seems to be the center of all this controversy), is what I believe is the only thing to discuss, because without your tweet, this all becomes irrelevant and a non existent occurrence. Sure, I can see the satire in your tweet, but you (especially considering you profession and educational background) of all people should have known the outcome would be exactly as it is, given the SJW climate in western culture. I find it difficult to believe that you could not have seen this coming. Simply implying safe spaces would be infringed upon at any college campus would undoubtedly cause triggered reactions. I can only assume that the controversy was your desired outcome, as I believe you are too intelligent to have not seen this coming. Now that I have laid the groundwork for my previous conclusion, please take a moment to ponder a suggestion that would be beneficial to society. Let us go back in time, just moments before your tweet. Instead of a childish safe space joke, you tweet something more to the point, such as this: " I will be appearing at (said college) to have an open discussion regarding free speech on (said date). Students of (said college) are encouraged to attend the event". First and foremost, if your actual intent is to leave the world a better place and to not cause damage, certainly you can see the uselessness of your tweet. If you want to engage young minds and help them understand there are better ways of conducting oneself, using satirical insults is a childish attempt to create personal fame. I have watched many hours of your lectures and have found them quite interesting and do believe many young minds could benefit from your knowledge. It would be a shame to see all that potential become categorized as just another alt-right rhetoric proponent the media can expose. Why give them the ammo, when you clearly have something positive to offer. I do hope this letter is not perceived as a personal attack, but as a positive critique. Best Regards, Mr. Wagner Reply anne armstrong says: June 12, 2018 at 6:19 pm The downright rudeness of them, and sheer lack of consideration for a guest, is reprehensible. The Linfield administration are beyond dopey, and seem not to get that by creating all the fuss, they have just made your words more powerful. Thank God that some of the students have escaped the indoctrination. But what does this say for other colleges in the USA ? Is it a worldwide issue? Reply conrad1on says: June 16, 2018 at 6:16 pm I'm glad that they were able to find a local lung ward to host the talk.

Very thankful for a man of this intellect, maturity and comportment. He is the lighthouse beacon for this generation. Reply Reeny pie says: July 3, 2018 at 7:00 pm He is the martyr for the meaning of free speech! Reply NarutoBaby94 says: July 8, 2018 at 1:11 pm I'm sorry you & the YAL had to go through that harassment. I find it fascinating that they speak of safe spaces and teaching young students when they refuse to give those same safe spaces for people with different views from the accepted status quo. Instead of using this as an opportunity to understand why those who oppose them think differently and using it as an opportunity to strengthen their own arguments, whatever form it may take, they decide to shut things down so they don't risk those ideas being spread. The Linfield College Community must not be very confident in their arguments, their students' strength of will & belief in morality to even consider allowing such "poisonous ideology" to enter their "utopia". I find that instead of protecting their students, they are harming them in not allowing them the opportunity to listen & learn what others have to say, whether or not they agree with them.We as a nation have spent so long to achieve tolerance of others' beliefs from establishing a Constitution ("all men are created equal") all the way to granting a basic right as allowing two adults to form an economic union to have just have that little bit of peace & well-being in their homes. It is hypocritical for those who speak of not only tolerance but acceptance to oppress the communication of ideas with which they do not agree.When colleges started to allow anti-homosexual groups to gather & spread their message in public, I was glad. Not because I agreed with them. Several of my personal heroes are homosexual & quite a few are married to the love of their lives. I was glad because I & other allies could now know who NOT to associate with outside of a business &/or academic standpoint. I am also glad b/c I now have the opportunity to learn why they think the way we do so I can find weak points in my own arguments & strengthen them. One such example is Jesus's definition of marriage as well as comments in Old Testament that were anti-gay. I researched the history, circumstances, & vocabulary of the time. I have since come to the conclusion that God loves his children & does not condemn homosexuality itself, only when sexual acts between genders is used in paganist rituals (which is something he gets pissed about). I also learned that the Biblical lingo for homosexuals was "born eunuchs".In conclusion, what happened at the Lenfield College was wrong & benefited no one.

Reply Joselito Borja says: August 26, 2018 at 9:13 pm Prof. Dr. Jordan Peterson is one of the guardians of Free speech, free thinking and expression still being offered in free market of ideas. It's not enough to listen to his words and feel satisfied, awaken and enlightened, we have to step up to the challenges of our time, help in preserving free speech the way you want to protect your life, losing freedom is worse than death. Reply Harry Yonemura III says: October 4, 2018 at 3:30 am As an alumnus of Linfield College who donates money to the college every year, after hearing how you were treated by the administration and the student council, I will not give the college another dine, recommend young men and women from attending the college and tell your story to all of my friends who are alumnus to also not give until the people in the administration are fired and the students responsible are disciplined. Reply Kelly Berry says: October 5, 2018 at 8:13 pm Brilliant Dr..Brilliant. Reply Rafael Stoneman says: October 7, 2018 at 3:20 am Like you, I have spent 30 years thinking "obsessively" about the meaning of human existence. I have not read as many books as you and have not advanced as far academically as you. I spent a couple months watching everything I could find on you and then I reached a point of burn out. It started to feel like I had heard all you had to say because each new video I found started to feel like a repeat of what you have already expressed. In a way, you must feel like a musician who is constantly asked to play the same favorite song. I took a break from watching you, probably about a month and then your interview with Dr. Oz came out and I watched that and then today I watched the one at Queens University. In both of these, I discovered that it doesn't really matter what you are saying, if you are speaking from your Heart, then I am listening from my Heart. I use the word Heart perhaps in a way that might embody a deep balance of both hemispheres of the brain (as you speak about). When you speak from this place, in this way, on the verge of tears because of how much you care about truth and freedom for humanity, it is simply inspiring. I feel I will take another break and come back to you again. I have taken much from your wisdom and insights but now it is time to get back to my own thought process on the human condition and what would best help humanity to become liberated from unnecessary suffering. My biggest inspiration has been Ramana Maharshi, you may have heard of him as Carl Jung made some comments about him and I know you have probably read everythign Carl Jung has written. Ramana is not for the current masses because the truth that he points to is for people that are very intensely serious about Self-realization and have a one pointed focus on it but I do feel that you would resonate with his life and teaching. When you have the time, please read: Living By the Words of Bhagavan by David Godman. Here is a link to order the book: http://davidgodman.org/gen2/p/books/godman.living-by-the-words-of-bhagavan.html Thanks for reading and your dedication to truth is very much appreciated! Reply poi4ever says: October 13, 2018 at 8:40 pm So… Dr. Peterson wants everyone to be the best they can be and be a benefit to society.What in the H is Linfield teaching that they don't want to hear this??? Reply darryl b says: October 15, 2018 at 6:24 am Wow What qualifications are necessary to be an administrator at a college, and deny your students access to such deep insight, they are A: are too lazy to research the speaker and determine the value of their view. B: are afraid their own unfounded views will be exposed, C: afraid of being scorned by the other members or politically correct groups among the faculty.

University are making everything political and a social issue. if they preach freedom of speech, why is it that they cannot have someone like Dr. Peterson give a lecture to their students. Universities are set on their liberal thinking and no one should dare contradict them. Why was this persons so against him giving his lecture? I believe the reason is because they don't have the ability to challenge his point of view. I started reaching about Dr. Peterson because I found a page on youtube criticizing his view point. It made me very curious so I did some research and actually I truly enjoy his lectures.The more people post or died his point view makes others more curious like me.

We must charge fees to industries that pollute, deplete natural resources or destroy wildlife habitat, so that prices will reflect costs to the environment along with labor costs and capital costs. When prices are honest, the more profitable industries will be those that create sustainable business models. When prices are honest, devastating marine life by trawling the ocean floor will not be a profitable activity Consumers will adopt habits and lifestyles that are consistent with a sustainable society because prices will turn them toward that path. Sharing fee proceeds will bring an end to poverty. This should be a global policy. We can raise fees until they are just high enough to bring impacts of various kinds into line with what most people think is acceptable. Honest prices will inform us about the larger-scale and distant impact of our actions. We are at a crisis point. As long as prices are lying to us about costs, we will continue to do the wrong thing (pollute; squander resources; destabilize climate).

This whole alt-right, anti-woman, exclusionary and wrecker of "safe-space" rhetoric is so absurd, it is offensive to even give response. None the less, these institutions that so proudly wave the "free speech for all" flag, are the very first to tear that flag down when Jordan's name comes up. The administrators bury the mere thought of a Jordan Peterson lecture under the guise of "protecting our fragile students" under a tattered copy of the US Constitutional Amendments in the basement behind the boiler. I am proud to be an American supporting a Canadian who has his own copy of US Constitution & Amendments. He carries it around in his head, knows it better than I ever will and doesn't even live in this country. You administrators will eventually lose this fight to protect your students from all the evils of the world and will eventually be face to face with a demon of your own making…… hell. EDIT: I am curious about the "… violating more safe spaces soon…" comment. I am watching this video on 9/13/19 and have heard Jordan say that he has worked on better control of his "darker side". My guess is that he would not make such a statement today, as this comment was likely part of that learning curve. NOTE: If you ask Jordan to speak at your venue, please afford him voice amplification that does not require holding a microphone. He is at his best, when in a seated position and has the use of his hands to better express his ideas.

Those who always tow-the-line know and consequently speak only dogma. Dumping the dogma exposes the fact that there's not an original thought in their bodies, I reckon. It also explains why they hold on to their daft ideologies so tightly, and preciously, like a comfort blanket. Reply libertycaps97211 says: October 6, 2019 at 6:34 am Lolsfield College. What a joke and waste of money: A Liberal Arts degree. Reply Jared Wright says: October 10, 2019 at 5:39 pm This kind of stuff absolutely disgusts me! These people are so weak minded, they couldn’t have a conversation with a child without getting offended! I really am praying for the next generation. Hopefully these weak minded people are also very impotent. No child deserves such weak people as parents. Western values, save our souls! Reply S. E.

Reply LN LN says: October 15, 2019 at 6:43 pm Thank you Jordan Peterson, for showing how a mature attitude works! Reply Guitardudeguy TMark/Osh says: October 22, 2019 at 5:43 pm The battle for free speech goes on. Surely the Linfield organization is a far left group of "like minded" professors and faculty that believe you are interrupting thier further indoctrinization of thier young students. Obviously they do not know Dr Peterson only know of him and are quite negatively opinionated against him for whatever reason they can muster. It's quite reprehensible what they've tried to do. But it's also quite remarkable that the students stood up and found an alternate location for the talk. Marxism and post modernization is being taught in these colleges and is very dangerous to our future living in America. The 1st amendment is part of our culture and a main brick in the foundation of our country. Thanks Dr Peterson for spreading the truth to our younger generation. It is detrimental to our existing free society. Reply Cyn Gli says: October 24, 2019 at 2:31 pm Unfortunately this represents part of the cancer effecting colleges at this time. Thank you for your work and for making this happen. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
