In this selection of highlights from a recent interview, John speaks with Dr. Jordan B. Peterson on his podcast. Peterson is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto, clinical psychologist, public speaker, and best-selling author.
They discuss the Australian lockdowns and the arrogation of increased government powers in light of COVID-19. They also discuss how politicians have shifted the responsibility of COVID-19 management and policy to a newly-established medical elite.
Finally, they contemplate the short and long-term consequences of heavy-handed government, including the legitimacy of lockdowns, introduction of vaccine mandates, and the normalisation of community surveillance.
