Dr. Jordan Peterson Deconstructs Postmodernism’s Assault Against the West

Dr. Jordan Peterson of the University of Toronto is going viral as he stands against PC domination on the university campus and challenges the assault upon reason, free research and free speech.

His new fame was sparked by the university “encouragement” of faculty to participate in their version of diversity training, which included how to to rightly use pronouns in the new gender fluid world. The assault upon Peterson was tsunamic. Rather than shrinking he took his position to the campus quads, to the lecture halls and debate forums and to youtube.

Here is his talk on the roots of the assaults, postmodern constructions of society. Postomodernism, as it is now constructed, is an assault against the West, against males, against reason and against gender rooted in biology. As Peterson makes clear, it is driven by resentment coupled with a pathological asbence of gratitude. It is worth a listen.

To Make Men Free: A History of the Republican Party

This interview with Heather Richardson is a very interesting take on the history of the GOP.

She is the author of the book, “To Make Men Free: A History Of The Republican Party.” Here she is being interviewed by C-Span’s Book TV. She has a left bias, but she makes real contributions to the discussion of what it means to be the GOP.

In a book panel elswhere she makes the point that the GOP embodies the American story in its history of balancing two consitutional values: equal opportunity and the right to own property. The Democratic Party does not live in that tension and is onesided in its approach, focusing on equal opportunity alone.

For all my friends who are GOP activists, I commend viewing this interview and reading this book.
