Common Sense with Dr Jordan Peterson

Over six weeks ago I wrote these words: “Every now and then a moment comes when someone fires a bolt of truth into the mayhem of modern culture and the repercussions are felt around the world, in a good way! Such a moment was the historic interview by Cathy Newman, an avowed radical feminist, with a mild but firm professor, Dr Jordan Peterson from Canada, a highly intelligent advocate for common sense.” I am glad to say these words have been proved true!

That self-same interview with Katy Newman has gone viral and is now heading towards 9 million views, while his YouTube Channel has almost one million subscribers. Jordan’s new book 12 Rules for Life – An Antidote to Chaos has been hovering at number one on the Amazon List for 9 weeks and could well be there for the next 12 months, if his YouTube videos views are any indication.

Six weeks have passed and Jordan Peterson has just completed a sold-out tour of Australia. He has appeared on all major Australian TV and radio shows and is taking a year’s sabbatical touring the world to promote his book 12 Rules for Life — An Antidote to Chaos.

Please find below a very insightful interview by Bettina Arndt. She and Miranda Devine are the two most famous female advocates for men in the Australian media world. Bettina was one of the keynote speakers at our Strategic Conference at Parliament House on Fatherhood in 2003. Typically, Dr Jordan Peterson has some great words of wisdom for the modern man.

Jordan Peterson has become a much-needed voice for men and many would say a father to a fatherless generation.

Have a great Easter with your family. Hope you have had a chance to check out I Can Only Imagine with your family, a truly great film still at the cinemas over the next week. The above video interview of Dr Jordan Peterson by Bettina Arndt is more than worth the watch.

Do I agree with Bettina’s viewpoint on everything.? The answer is ‘no’, but having said that, she is without doubt one of the modern Australian male’s greatest defenders, and Dr Peterson’s observations on sex and marriage offer us all some priceless wisdom for the modern man.

Yours for more Common Sense,
Warwick Marsh

    Maybe I want solitude.
    Maybe I don’t want to be around people much any more.
    Maybe I’ve had enough of bending and coming close to breaking what my soul knows is my integrity, Maybe I’ve had enough of compromise of my common sense, and had enough generally of having to spend my energy in responding to “their” problems in an effort to protect and defend myself from their perceptions, their prejudices, their fears, their insecurities, their labelling, their everything, and their social media condemnation.
    I have to attend to myself now, and fuck them.
    Even now, I feel I have to excuse or explain such a felt hostile remark. Can I camouflage it by saying that its just the modern way these days to say I’m out of here, which is a way of saying, I’m not going to do this anymore, I’m not going to sacrifice my energy and intelligence and all my resources, and everything I have ever read and understood, on the altar of someone else\’s felt fears, insecurities, resentments. Maybe its time for me to get selfish, i.e. self caring. I am not responsible for their fears, insecurities and resentments. I have had my own to deal with, and I have made progress. They need to do the same.
