Peterson & Solzhenitsyn Speak Truth to Power

. . .It is not hard to see why Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, whose 100th birthday will be celebrated on December 11, would be such a compelling figure for Jordan Peterson, the Jungian psychologist who has become an international cause célèbre for defying Orwellian speech codes added to Canada’s Human Rights Act.  In addition to advocating an ethic of individual responsibility for directionless & emasculated youths, Peterson has devoted much of his scholarship to the ways in which modern totalitarian systems manipulate language & concepts.  Just as Solzhenitsyn in his day warned that “socialism of any type & shade leads to a total destruction of the human spirit & to a leveling of mankind into death,” so, too, does Peterson now condemn political-correctness as the spawn of Marxism—which is, in turn, “a murderous ideology” built upon “vicious, untenable & anti-human ideas”. . .
