Video: The World Needs Individualism, and Here's Why

Jordan Peterson, a professor at University of Toronto, was catapulted into the public eye in 2016 when he came under fire on campus for refusing to use made-up pronouns to refer to students.

Rather than apologizing or walking back his statements, Peterson doubled down. You might say he quadrupled down. He has been all over the media talking about why, from his perspective as a clinical psychologist, treating people like snowflakes is bad for them, and for society.

Peterson has brilliant and insightful things to say about political correctness, cultural Marxism, the leftist agenda, and where the West is headed if we don't get our shit together.

I have seen several interviews with Peterson, but I've never seen anything quite like this. In a written statement which he reads aloud, Peterson lays out his argument for the West to unite under "the banner of individualism," which he finds in Christianity. His argument is clear, beautiful, and delivered with passion.

It's long, but do yourself of the favor of watching or at least listening to a brilliant man's prescription for healing our culture.
