Jordan Peterson: Bear Your Cross
A timeless collection of history and advice, I rewatch these clips over and over..
Jordan Peterson has been a major influence in my life for the past six years. While his talk can meander at times, what has kept me coming back is his ability to explain ancient advice in plain terms that are easy to understand. His videos which include topics such as "How To Think" and "Make Friends With What You Don't Know," have been deeply meaningful to me on both intellectual and emotional levels, helping me see myself and the world through a different lens. Peterson's advocacy of these ancient wisdom help highlight how relevant they still are today, even thousands of years later. He also outlines here how our little actions in society can lead to the death of millions.
Dr. Jordan Peterson's thought-provoking segment on freedom of speech and postmodernism was even more applicable today than it was four years ago when I first watched it. In an age of bias and propaganda, we're becoming increasingly dependent on pre-packaged ideas and forgetting how to think for ourselves. Dr. Peterson presents a better option - 'bear your cross' - a reminder that if you take ownership of your development you can become a reliable person other members of your family and wider community can turn to in times of despair. By standing up for freedom of speech with intelligence and reason, while understanding the core concepts behind postmodernism, we can maintain our ability to think rationally, even in moments where powerful influences may be trying to detract us from the truth.
