Jordan Peterson Wishes Elon Musk Merry Christmas While Taking a Dig at Wokeness
"Anyone who can design and mass market an electric car and then fire one of them into space on his own rocket definitely has me as a fan", Peterson wrote, referring to Tesla’s decision to launch its Roadster sports car with a mannequin nicknamed Starman into space.
The Canadian psychologist, who is author of the best-seller "12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos", has come under intense criticism from the left over his conservative views, which critics of the academic deem offensive.
The most severe criticism came after the psychologist refused to use gender neutral pronouns and dismissed Canada’s C-16 bill, which added gender expression and gender identity as protected grounds to the country’s Human Rights Act. The academic has maintained that he is not at odds with the transgender community, but rather with the fact that the legislation turns the use of gender neutral pronouns into compelled speech, which Peterson considers a violation of freedom of speech.
The academic recently weighed in on the dangers of suppression of freedom of opinion.
