Canadian professor of psychology, Jordan Peterson is a new discovery for me. In some ways, he’s the new Martin Luther in the increasingly corrupt Canadian soviet, where speech is now compelled rather than free. It is a tragedy that Canada has followed the path of tyranny and distrust of its people.
Here, Professor Peterson compares the behavior of Christ and Mohammed; he also points out that Islam is a political ideology – i.e., it’s not primarily a religion at all.
His interviewers, who agree with him, bring up the fragmentation of Christianity after the Reformation. It wasn’t peaceful at all (no dissolution of power ever is). Their obvious ignorance of the long bloody religious wars that followed on the break-up of the Catholic Church’s stranglehold on European culture is surprising. However, the larger track of the conversation is correct: Islam limits freedom.
In fact, Islam doesn’t even recognize freedom except to see it as dangerous. Just as Canada now sees freedom of speech as dangerous. Compelled speech is the first step toward a totalitarian state. Wait till the government starts rewarding people for turning in violators of that law…wait till other strictures on freedom follow.

I’ll be posting other videos by Dr. Peterson in the future. He’s a real iconoclast who is willing to pay the price of his beliefs.
