The Queen's University Talk: The Rising Tide of Compelled Speech

About :

I was invited to Queen's University March 5 to give the inaugural lecture/discussion of the Liberty Lecture series, funded by Faculty of Law alumnus, Gregory Piasetzki (LLB 1980).

Dr. Bruce Pardy (https://law.queensu.ca/faculty-research/faculty-directory/pardy) and I discussed the increasingly frequent requirements for compelled speech that characterize the Canadian sociopolitical landscape.

The entire event was, in a word, surreal. Initial controversy over its acceptability rose to the point where the Dean of the Law School William Flanagan and Principal of Queen’s Daniel Woolf wrote missives in defence of free speech (the former: http://bit.ly/2EQJDm3; the latter: http://bit.ly/2tJB8VB). The Queen's University "Human Rights Office" posted a link to the Levana Gender Advocacy Centre and Education on Queer Issues Project "active support" efforts during this event at their “Trans-Positive and People of Colour Positive Chill-In” in Dunning Hall, room 11, where there was coloring pages, music, food, and discussion.

The 900 or so people who attended (who comported themselves admirably and thoughtfully throughout) were subject to a continual 90-minute barrage of noise generated by the protestors, who leaped up on the stained glass windows lining the hall and banged continually on them, breaking one. Inside, we could see shadowy figures dimly outlined through the colored glass. The outside doors were barricaded. One protestor was caught on film saying "Lock them in and burn it down." The din was substantial and ominous, although it is much attenuated in this video, due to the nature of the microphones used, which were designed to pick up speech close at hand.

The protestor who broke the window was arrested, but not before she bit a policeman, attempted to kick the back window out of a police cruiser, and was found to be in possession of a garrotte, a particularly brutal weapon with no defensive utility whatsoever (http://bit.ly/2HoTDAu). The man who cursed so profoundly and eloquently near the beginning of the lecture accosted me and my crew after the talk, and yelled and cursed and threatened at close quarters during our 200-yard walk from the venue to the parkade.

No one who was at this event will forget it.

Not good. Not good at all.

At what point would it be considered acceptable to go outside and slap these babies around just a bit? I think they would immediately retreat and kiddie-cry and suddenly decide their position isn't worth fighting for. Or would they not?

The idea that conservatives previously attempted to censor speech was put forward in this talk. I would submit that there is no conservative or liberal. There are only those who favor authoritarian control, those who favor no control, and all the degrees between those extremes. The "conservatives" who pushed government censorship long ago were just people who favored authoritarian control. The "liberals" who want to censor free speech today are just those who favor authoritarian control. They are one and the same.

Disgusting state of affairs. Its fine to protest. However is it fair to intimiate.
It seems these protester behaviour is similar to the behaviour of the very things, that it seems are in their minds of which they purport to be against. I honestly don't think they are listening, just projecting their idea of what's being said.

Left or right when you stop others ability to speak freely and debate you will end up with supression.

Why not listen and argue your point. Shouting and intimidation only make opposition entrench.

It looked to me like most of the protesters were just out to have some fun and laughs. A lot of giggling and such going on. That's no genuine protest, sorry guys. Look at footage from the civil rights movement, how much dancing and laughing do you see there? Get a clue. If it's not serious enough to you so that you can do it with a straight face, then it's not serious enough to be a genuine protest. Get a productive hobby, go to a party, see a movie, any number of other ways you can amuse yourself. That, or find a serious cause you can get behind and justify a genuine protest.

I am so sad that I did not sign up to attend this speech. I live in Kingston and knew it was coming, I just suppose I was far too busy with studies at the time, and I still am, but I regret that I did not take the time to see Jordan speak. Oh well, at least I can watch it now in High Def.

It really is the ultimate irony:
The 'left' think that everyone should be in a specific group. This has to be exponentially divided to account for the fact that no one fits into any one group, meaning that you end up with the current system of 'treat everyone as an individual'.

Jordan well done, barbarians at the door funny joke at the same time scary truth. I don't know how or where you channel all this stuff from, but whatever your doing please don't stop. Ps I have never seen life as suffering but I understand that other do so great. I have, although wondered why people are so interested getting into paradise when they are dead when if they looked around they would see they are already there.Or am I just weird. Oh maybe you could tell me. Have fun and thanks for your work.

I have to wonder why do the videography team seem to find it neccessary to cut to ASSHOLES TAPPING ON THE WINDOWS, Heres an idea, if you're recording a stage interview how about not focusing in the shitheels trying to derail the conversation? WHAT THE FUCK??? edit: of course unless the video team itself has some innate postmodernist deconstructionist bent requiring that the window tapping having to be shown??? Yet this is posted in JBP own channel....

I wonder how many people (kids) banging on the windows were doing it just because their "friends" were, or because the group they want to be included in were doing it.

As in, what percentage of those kids have any thorough understanding of what their actions are supposed to be representing?

Most young adults, up to the age of 25, seek inclusion in a group that makes them feel "special", "unique", or "appreciated because of who they are as an individual".

It's in our biology. It's in our DNA.

Once that sense of belonging is "achieved" and a group is found, many adopt the "groups" views, the "groups" beliefs, and will follow whatever actions the group and it's "leaders" choose to do.

They were once a unique individual with something great to offer the world, but then they shed their individuality and adopt a group mentality.

It's sad because most young adults won't truly comprehend what consequences it can have in life when you stop thinking for yourself and you start thinking from the groups point of view.

It's so ironic, so sad, and so devastating not only to the individual, but to their "group" and to the society as a whole.

It's dangerous because self-reflection by young adults who live by their group doesn't happen until it's too late.

Too late, as in they don't truly self-reflect or do INDIVIDUAL RESEARCH until after their group has succeeded to change the world by introducing new laws that put up new barriers, take away freedoms, and eliminate the celebration of what it means to be an individual.

They then stop and say, "wait..... what happened? This new system actually sucks! This is NOT the way we intended it to be. This is NOT what we were fighting for all this time! This is NOT what I want for MY Life. This is NOT okay by ME anymore. Why does the world suck more now? Why did OTHER people ruin it for ME?"


Fortunately, though, not everyone is so easily controlled and manipulated.

There are very likely some people in that childish group that will reach a point where they ask themselves:

"wait... what are we doing? What am I "fighting" for with this group? Have I actually taken time to research these issues on my own_? Have I actually _listened to other people's views without me instantly shutting them down because they are not part of my group and do not believe the same things my group has helped me to believe?"

"...have I actually come up with scenarios where my groups ideas might be harmful to the very same people I believe I'm standing up for? Have I envisioned a future where what I want with my group is what we get, and what the results my be in the short and long term?"

It's sad. It's so sad.

Fighting for certain group inclusion (in this sense) only leads to an exciting moneymoon with a violent, inevitable divorce that leaves families broken and dreams ruined....

Be an individual. Celebrate it. Fight for freedoms with your mind, not your your voice.

Just to inform all of you, since Peterson's emergence championing free speech and exposing how the rad-left has systematically assumed power over marginalized groups in the last decade or so with its Marxist-Post-modernist tenets, TWO Fb groups for trans-people who support and uphold freedom-of-speech (and are against compelled and censored speech) have formed, with new members added daily! The barbaric people in this video trying to disrupt peaceful proceedings in the main hall ARE NOT representative of the trans-community as a whole- not in the least! Those of us who have before been silent are becoming awake and aware of this threat to western civilization and civil discourse! Much love to Dr. Peterson for his courage in these dark times.

Id like to thank Jordan, for .......giving the young people of the world some hope that what they are thinking and what they are feeling is relevant and true. And it is up to them to be the change. A comment .... on the young people from Parkland who stood up and made there mark, and listening to the questions and articulate comments from the questionnaires during this talk I am encouraged that it is our youth that will show the way.
Addendum: Hurry up, we need your help and Jordan has shown the way....
To Jordan Peterson: You must be asking yourself " Am I doing the right thing? " You sir have awakened the young masses and given them an OK to question... not only question but you have given them the affirmation that what is going on is wrong. You have suggested how and what needs to be done to correct it.
This may be the last stand .
Thank you sir...

The IDW is so fortunate to have the likes of Professor Jordan B. Peterson in our camp. I am calling on all Free Thinkers to awaken and rise. We need to speak up and support one another to build a new, prosperous, joyous movement to move western society forward with wisdom, compassion, and intellectual integrity. Thank you Queen’s University for hosting this inspiring and thought-provoking event and for posting it to You Tube free of charge to a grateful global public.
