Jordan Peterson shared his experience in academia in Canada.
Jordan Peterson: Why I am no longer a tenured professor at the University of Toronto
Here is a little taste:
This, from the head of the former totalitarian enterprise, against whom we fought a five decadesâ€™ long Cold War, risking the entire planet (in a very real manner). This, from the head of a country riven in a literally genocidal manner by ideas that Putin himself attributes to the progressives in the West, to the generally accepting audience of his once-burned (once (!)) twice-shy listeners.
And all of you going along with the DIE activists, whatever your reasons: this is on you. Professors. Cowering cravenly in pretence and silence. Teaching your students to dissimulate and lie. To get along. As the walls crumble. For shame. CEOs: signalling a virtue you donâ€™t possess and shouldnâ€™t want to please a minority who literally live their lives by displeasure. Youâ€™re evil capitalists, after all, and should be proud of it. At the moment, I canâ€™t tell if youâ€™re more reprehensibly timid even than the professors. Why the hell donâ€™t you banish the human resource DIE upstarts back to the more-appropriately-named Personnel departments, stop them from interfering with the psyches of you and your employees, and be done with it? Musicians, artists, writers: stop bending your sacred and meritorious art to the demands of the propagandists before you fatally betray the spirit of your own intuition. Stop censoring your thought. Stop saying you will hire for your orchestral and theatrical productions for any reason other than talent and excellence. Thatâ€™s all you have. Thatâ€™s all any of us have.
He who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind. And the wind is rising.
