The Queen's University Talk: The Rising Tide of Compelled Speech

About :

I was invited to Queen's University March 5 to give the inaugural lecture/discussion of the Liberty Lecture series, funded by Faculty of Law alumnus, Gregory Piasetzki (LLB 1980).

Dr. Bruce Pardy (https://law.queensu.ca/faculty-research/faculty-directory/pardy) and I discussed the increasingly frequent requirements for compelled speech that characterize the Canadian sociopolitical landscape.

The entire event was, in a word, surreal. Initial controversy over its acceptability rose to the point where the Dean of the Law School William Flanagan and Principal of Queen’s Daniel Woolf wrote missives in defence of free speech (the former: http://bit.ly/2EQJDm3; the latter: http://bit.ly/2tJB8VB). The Queen's University "Human Rights Office" posted a link to the Levana Gender Advocacy Centre and Education on Queer Issues Project "active support" efforts during this event at their “Trans-Positive and People of Colour Positive Chill-In” in Dunning Hall, room 11, where there was coloring pages, music, food, and discussion.

The 900 or so people who attended (who comported themselves admirably and thoughtfully throughout) were subject to a continual 90-minute barrage of noise generated by the protestors, who leaped up on the stained glass windows lining the hall and banged continually on them, breaking one. Inside, we could see shadowy figures dimly outlined through the colored glass. The outside doors were barricaded. One protestor was caught on film saying "Lock them in and burn it down." The din was substantial and ominous, although it is much attenuated in this video, due to the nature of the microphones used, which were designed to pick up speech close at hand.

The protestor who broke the window was arrested, but not before she bit a policeman, attempted to kick the back window out of a police cruiser, and was found to be in possession of a garrotte, a particularly brutal weapon with no defensive utility whatsoever (http://bit.ly/2HoTDAu). The man who cursed so profoundly and eloquently near the beginning of the lecture accosted me and my crew after the talk, and yelled and cursed and threatened at close quarters during our 200-yard walk from the venue to the parkade.

No one who was at this event will forget it.

Not good. Not good at all.

Here are people discussing issues of free speech and cultural values. From the reaction of the protesters you would have thought they were there to discuss whether 'all the jews should be locked up' or something.

When you see people attempting to shut down the speech of others you are watching people attempting to destroy ideas. But here is the thing, the way you destroy ideas in a civilised world is to take them apart with logic and evidence, you do not destroy the idea by banning it.
History shows that those who want to destroy ideas by silencing the people who hold them are the same people who would burn books..and "Where they burn books, they will also ultimately burn people."

Ideas are spiritual, and we are engaged in a war of ideas. Truth is the saving weapon, Truth, Faith to believe it and courage to speak it. GBY Jordan.

Dear, Dr. Jordan Peterson.

You have a very unique and fascinating way of explanation! I believe you are a far more powerful man, but you speak on that level only to reach your intellectual audience. The truth is; the spirit knows the truth! The intellect of the flesh believes it has the illusion of freewill and it rules its own destiny, but that’s only delusional thinking of the already dead body; for God has already decided everything before the foundations of the Earth! The spirit knows all its steps and life is fated by God; for it existed with him before this delusional existence of already dead matter! It is our moral compass to eternal life; for even death itself tells, all matter is deluded and already dead. Just as your climbing the hill on crutches to God’s Kingdom at the top; or descending into the abyss of darkness and death. God raised up everything, and uses everything to fulfill his prophecy for man’s eternal death in the sinful, corrupt, intellectual, already dead body; or everlasting life in the truth of living and walking; praying and singing in the spirit to him! All life is prophecy being fulfilled moment by moment! The intellect of the flesh cannot comprehend it, but the wisdom of the spirit knows God only give what he has already written for us at the appointed time; as long as we stay in the spirit with him. The flesh plans and purposes; God decides and disposes! Matter is delusion and death; spirit is reality and life! I share a little encouragement in the spirit!

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” {1 Corinthians 3:16} “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” {2 Timothy 1:7} He gave us his spirit power; his spirit love, and his spirit sound mind! “Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.” {1 John 4:13} We dwell in each other; he gave us his spirit power and character with his spirit in us, and he took our fears and weakness in him. His spirit power and character we can have, by just staying joined to him as one spirit! “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” {1 Corinthians 6:17} But we can only be joined to him as one spirit; in the truth of living and walking; praying and singing in the spirit to him! “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” {Galatians 5:25} “What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.” {1 Corinthians 14:15} “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” {John 4:24} God's powerful spirit potential he entrusted to us already, if we can only realize it! For we can; “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” {Matthew 5:48} And we will be led by him and be his true children. “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” {Romans 8:14} We will be his true spirit sons and daughters! “The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:” {Romans 8:16} And then we can truthfully say; “I and my Father are one.” {John 10:30} We can truly be one with our Father in the spirit, and receive his powerful spirit character; if only we believe, just like Jesus did! “And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.” {Ezekiel 36:27} “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” {John 6:63} And you are right; we are far more powerful than we can ever imagine!

The only weapons we have to defeat evil are our one connection of spirit to God and his word. But many want to take that powerful weapon away, and demonize us as sacrifices for the devils already dead army! They want us to degrade our perfect, powerful, eternal creation, and see ourselves as already dead monkey people, manipulated by little green men; with nothing to look forward to but a grave full of worms waiting to devour us! The truth is; our bodies are not empowered by science, or monkeys, or aliens; it is empowered by the spirit of God! Who don’t believe; then they should remove the spirit of God from their already dead body, and see what will happen?

I stand on that solid rock of truth with you! I’d rather truthfully testify our Father and be alone with him in the spirit; than speak a lie only to be accepted by this deluded, already deceased world of matter.

Was born in 1984, will not die in 1984.
Communism fell in my country in 1989 but it's obvious that the idea behind it is alive and well in the western world today.
Mr Peterson has every right to say NO to it. Actually, it's every decent human being's responsibility to say NO to it.

At the times of the Second Temple young men of Israel were to listen and learn, learn and listen until the age of 30. Only after that they could express their own opinion without risking of being perceived immature. in XXI century Peter Pan child-men had prevailed. From kindergartens children are encouraged to challenge the authority of parents and are deprived of any opportunity to learn from wisdom painstakingly accumulated by past generations and and passed on to us through books, visual and performing arts, national and family traditions. Live life as if it did not exist before you. Have fun and indulge yourselves. As a conscience, child-men preoccupied with having fun, can't be bothered to reproduce and have children of their own.

After being under a rock for the last 5 years (video-games are an evil addiction) to finally peak outside of my rock to see what's happening inside the province is a scary thing. As a Canadian, I mistakenly thought that worries about politics were a non-issue. This matter more than just having me worried. It has me actually keeping update with news about my own country. It's embarrassing that I know more about what's going on in America than I do Canada even though I live here.

Should I split these videos into parts? I feel like I have the same issue many people in the comment section have: I can't process the information in such large amounts and end up phasing out and missing parts of the video.
If so, what is a good length for those clips?

On the topic of inequality: By almost all accounts, I was raised in a disadvantaged position. Sometimes homeless. Sometimes hungry. Always very, very alone. At one point I realized that a mangy stray dog receives more compassion and assistance than a neglected child in our society.

I was aware of inequality. That other children were clean, dressed, and fed. That other children had homes and fathers and loving parents.

And that realization gave me a template to aspire to. I saw that there was a better world and put myself to the task of achieving this better life for myself.

In North Korea they've put a lock on all forms of media. They've had to because when suffering people see that there's something better, they're going to want that for themselves. They're going to risk life and limb for the opportunity.

There are people in Western societies who're genuinely disadvantaged by horrible circumstances beyond their control. A person who's laid low by a chronic disease, for example, may not have the strength to earn a living. These people do need help.

But in most Western societies, we DO help.

For the rest of us, the dissatisfaction with our station in our society can be a driving force for personal grown and change.

The WORST thing you can do is tell this beaten human being that they're a victim. Validate all of their feelings of self-pity. And tell them that it can't get better. Tell them that they don't have a chance. Yes, it's fair to acknowledge their situation. But then their eyes have to be directed inward, upward, and forward and they need to be cheered as they climb their way up and out.

If those individuals banging on the windows and doors actually took the time to listen to Dr. Peterson, then they would know that none of what was discussed in that hall was promoting any form of hate speech. This is the epicenter of an ignorant radicalist movement to stop rational discourse. I believe those beating on the windows were being willfully ignorant and were producing their own form of tyranny which is designed to intimidate through fear and force. However, I was very glad to hear the thoughtful questions from the audience and the profoundly rational answers given by Dr. Peterson and Dr. Pardy. I am optimistic that the old rhetorics fueled by pathos or meer passionate arguments are beginning to give way to a new rational discourse based on logos or logical reasoning.

I can't even be mad at them, if you watch the videos in the end, it really just feels like a mixed crowd of children who enjoy a little powerplay without giving it any thought, and some older people who have simply not been blessed with a lot intelligence that have burrowed themselfes in their easy worldview.

Dear Dr. Peterson:
I had nowhere to enter this since I quit FB and the Twit and there is no general discussion tab anymore. I was wondering if you had heard about this latest bomber in Austin, TX. Seems to have had no political motives, no racial motives. Police just said his obituary recording reflected a troubled young man with personal problems. (!?)

He did say on his tape he was sorry he wasn't sorry. Is this a psychopath? who is sorry he's not sorry? A meta - path?
Would be interested to hear something. If you find this interesting enough to investigate.

We do not and should not have a RIGHT to free speech.

We do have and must have a RESPONSIBILITY to speak the truth.

We need to focus on the RESPONSIBILITY not the RIGHT. The claimed RIGHT is being abused by people who have no interest in the RESPONSIBILITY.

I don't feel sorry for these kids... yeah they may be dumb as hell thanks to their liberal parents and teachers... but a decent human being should already know right from wrong and what a "good person" would do...
A "good person" would not try to intimidate others by pounding on windows or disrupting their arguments... these people pounding on the windows are the villains in this story. They're the enemy of the heroes like Peterson that speaks the truth. They're the bad guys.

Regarding the final question: the evils of Nazism sprung from tribalism, while the evils of Communism sprung from altruism. To this day, altruism is still not recognized as a corrupt and perverted morality, and that's why Communism gets a pass. Unfortunately, people need the philosophy of Objectivism to understand this, and it is not yet mainstream.
