    This episode was recorded on April 22nd, 2021
    Paul Rossi and I sit down to discuss the controversy surrounding a recent article Paul wrote. It has become apparent that an anti-racism curriculum is being instituted in schools across the United States and that doesn’t initially sound like anything but a positive change. I had Paul on to share his concerns after working in one of these schools that are implementing new ways of thinking about how our western society is structured. We spoke about many of the flaws we see with the current direction of teaching.
    Paul Rossi is a high school mathematics teacher and writer. His April 21st, 2021 essay titled “I Refuse to Stand by While my Students are Indoctrinated” was published on Bari Weiss’ Substack “Common Sense with Bari Weiss”.

Incredible intellectual discussion

I really love the easy follow of dialogue and the topics. I am in awe of your brilliant mind and thought process. I have listened to many podcasts and am reading your books. It’s opened my eyes and ears to the fact we don’t have many ways to hear and discuss current issues without a politicized slant. Everyone is yearning for facts or even a reasonable debate. I think it’s truly important for all to open your minds to all points of view and reasonable critical thinking. Thanks Dr Peterson.

Matter of perspectives

What blows my mind is Jordan’s sincere intent is to help people with their lives... and to see how polarizing the reviews are is a little unsettling....95% of the reviews are 5 or 1 star... the latter filled with either hate spew or pretentious indoctrinated over educated people that think they’re smarter then him hahahahaha... luckily I’m a 5 star guy that has benefitted greatly from the hours I’ve invested in his work. Keep the politics out of it and I think anyone can benefit from this great Canadian ICON!

Negative Reviews

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and no one is perfect so there is plenty of room to be cynical of Jordan Peterson. I listen to a wide range of podcasts - Left, Right, all of it - So long as there is some semblance of intellectual vigor and integrity. Peterson is undoubtedly one of the most influential thinkers of our time. Hands down. There are others in his league, but the way he is able to articulate the internal, the unsaid, is truly remarkable.

I read the negative comments. Sometimes, there is legitimate criticism; however, the large majority of the negative comments are as shallow (or more so) than exposed rocks in a trickling stream. They go immediately to name calling, demagoguery, and self interested hatred. It is actually sort of fun to try to empathize with people who express such morbid closed mindedness. Fun, but a little disturbing.

The world is in an interesting spot - Remember, if you speak the truth and follow the golden rule, you and yours will be ok.

God bless, and love to you all.
