Jordan Peterson visits Australia.

“Life is suffering.

Love is the desire to see unnecessary suffering ameliorated.

Truth is the handmaiden of love.

Dialogue is the pathway to truth.

Humility is recognition of personal insufficiency and the willing ness to learn.

To learn is to die voluntarily and be born again, in great ways and small.

So, speech must be untrammelled

so that dialogue can take place,

so that we can all humbly learn

so that truth can serve love

so that suffering can be ameliorated

so that we can all stumble forward to the Kingdom of God.”

Jordan Peterson, despite the often undeserved controversy that he is stooped in, is a unique figure in the currents of pop intellectualism. Peterson has an independent mind and does not utter political and cultural cliche’s associated with the right or the left. His amazing capacity to inspire and motivate those who have lost hope for the future is a force for good in the world.

I went to a Sydney event where Jordan was speaking, it was very moving to be in such a crowd, listening to a speaker so knowledgeable and inspiring.
