Default The brutish male patriarchy .

In my opinion Canadian Professor Jordan Peterson is a
living treasure with deep insights that our society must take
on-board. ( Here is his bio on Wiki . )

Precisely why I think it is only a matter of time before
he is demonized and silenced . Expect to see him banned
from a University near you very soon .


You can listen to one of his great and insightful videos here .
