I immediately respected Peterson's courage to say no to the latest left-liberal attempt to regulate away all semblance of free speech and open discourse, but my respect for the man only deepened once I began to explore his works and understand the foundations of his views, throughts, and beliefs. He is of a rare breed. A professor who not only believes in axiomatic truth, but is willing to defend it despite the consequences. Unlike most of his colleagues teaching at universities, Peterson is no ideologically-possessed puppet willing to spout the left-liberal/social justice mantra in order further or maintain his career. What makes him special, in my opinion, is his uncanny understanding of what truth is and why it must be defended, regardless of the cost. He is no intellectual lightweight. Because of this, his enemies have not had an easy time taking him down.
Jordan Peterson is, in my mind, a great man. I urge you to visit his website and You Tube channel. His lectures, interviews, articles, and books are all required viewing/reading to help us all better understand just what it is we are facing and what will likely happen if we do not rise up and challenge that which is confronting Western civilization. He is already a prominent figure in the spiritual battle currently being waged; I have a feeling he will become even more important in the coming years.
I wish I had discovered him sooner and I urge you to discover him now. His ideas are truly life-changing or, at the very least, incredibly life-affirming.
