Jordan Peterson on self-help and political correctness
CANADIAN professor and cultural critic Jordan Peterson has a dire warning: “our universities are so far gone they can’t come back” after years of political correctness and social justice warfare.
In the second part of an in depth interview with Miranda Devine’s online radio show Miranda Live, Professor Peterson took aim at universities for furthering radical Marxism instead of teaching young people facts.
LISTEN TO THE FULL INTERVIEW:
“I think our universities are so far gone they can’t come back, I don’t think they’re salvageable in the least,” he told Miranda Live.
The Canadian academic stopped by as part of his already sold out Australia lecturer tour. He’s been a vocal figure back in his native country about universities pushing politically correct agendas.The foe of political correctness Professor Peterson also took aim at Aussie airline Qantas, which has recently implemented a range of PC guidelines, including banning the word “guys” and phrases like “mum and dad” in fear of offence.
“You’re a complete bloody fool,” he said, of the Qantas political correctness.“People who are doing this at the corporate level will rapidly get the comeuppance.”
