Why is free speech so important, foundational in fact?  According to
Peterson “it's the thing that keeps the temperamental types from
being at each other's throats”.

(He did an earlier one too, just before the Cathy Newman interview,

Notwithstanding Peterson's failings (he's a human, he certainly is
not perfect, but who is?), his message (if it can be so reduced),
evidenced by his popularity, is apparently (and I believe so)
relevant to the zeitgeist of today, in a very "let's avoid a 20th
Century style catastrophie" kind of way - do we really want to
empower another Stalin or Pol Pot?

Good luck fellow pepes,
