Jordan Peterson: YouTube's new father figure

Jordan Peterson: YouTube's new father figure

Self-help guru Jordan B. Peterson teaches today's men to find what they are missing. Like countless men, I recently discovered the online lectures of Jordan B. Peterson, a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto who rose to Internet fame and notoriety in November of 2016. The obscure professor had posted videos to his small YouTube channel voicing opposition to Canada's Bill C-16, which prohibited discrimination on the basis of gender identity — a concept that can include "misgendering" people by refusing to refer to them by their preferred pronouns. Peterson denounced the postmodernist motivations of the law, whose totalitarian end game, he believed, was to criminalize free speech.

As things are wont to unfold on the Internet, Peterson's videos and media coverage snowballed until he eventually caught the eye — and became a three-hour guest on — popular YouTube channels such as the Rubin Report and the Joe Rogan Experience. Peterson's animated divertissements won instant fans through his particularly engaging mix of topics: free speech and political correctness, the history of totalitarianism, personality traits and psychological well-being, hero's-journey mythology, and the stories of the Old Testament.
