Thanks. To say a bit more, the distinction Peterson misses is critical to civil rights debates: people who are discriminated against do not enjoy individual freedom. But when he’s asked about civil rights movements, he dismisses them as practicing “identity politics,” a term he uses to describe the origins of knowledge even as people in politics use the term to describe disputes over civil rights!

Democracy is pretty cool. We should try it some time. Voting rights, science policy, political communication and grassroots activism.
