Jordan Peterson | Australia: Freedom and Authoritarianism | #CLIP

In this short, John speaks to Jordan Peterson on his podcast about Australia’s response to rising authoritarianism at home and abroad. He comments on the trade delegations with China and how Australia might stand up against it. John optimistically points out that Australians are increasingly aware of our need for freedom and desire a pragmatic middle ground between government control and individual accountability.

  1. The traditional devotees to Pharisaism extremely strongly dislike when Jesus devotees gain the upper hand and conduct just retaliation for profoundly immoral harms done to them for a duration of suffering quickly approaching one thousand years.

    Recall also that 1492 was the year that Christopher Columbus was sponsored by Queen Isabella to set sail to explore a new route to China to trade spice and other manufactured products.

  2. Kissinger propped up China in the 1970s.
    Bascially he and his friends/associates created what we have now.

    They can figure it out. If they don't, they may face consequences of losing the freedom that they claim to hold dear.


    I am just an old chunk of coal, an observer.

  3. This guy is a nut who trusts the government, who takes these fake vaccines and tells people they should do the same. Listening to him is worse than just a waste of time.

  4. Yes, they did vote Churchill out to be sure of getting those freedoms they had lost back, but there is no way that's going to happen with the current far left controlled Australian labour party. We already know about their scant regard for free speech.

  5. John Anderson, out of touch and endless waffling, nothing's changed. More fence sitting and voluminously generalising as usual, trying to be everything to everyone.
    It's disappointing that the sleepy conservative set haven't woken up yet, still watching their captured MSM, including all of their pet leftist media, including the propaganda arm of duopoly government, the ABC.

  6. propaganda and misinformation, control of information of australian (and others) so called "mainstream media" is incredible ….no (ex) socialist government would not desire it ….

  7. Now you had that conversation on 22 Nov – what date did a US court temporarily block Biden's vaccine mandate? 6th Nov – what date did the US court of Appeals uphold the Nov 6th decision? 13th Nov – stop lying buddy! It has not been determined.

  8. Article 2 of the Constitution of the United States of America gives the rules on how to elect an executive (A president, a governor, a mayor.) As well as all the powers that executive has and what to do when the executive violates his powers. No where in Article 2 does it say that the executive can make a law, a decree, a mandate or even an executive order. The right to make laws is reserved exclusively to the legislative branch of government. (Congress) Which must be voted on by the people of the United States. Remember we are a republic not a monarchy. We don't follow a leader, we are a limited government that is ruled by the constitution that gives the people of the United States the right to determine what laws they are going to live under. The people rule in America, we don't have a royal family or a political party ruling over us. The government is subject to the people. The government has absolutely no right to tell the people they need to take a drug in order to work. There is even a law that says that no company can require their employees to us a medical device to be employed. It's highly invasive and discriminatory. It violates the 1st Amendment which guarantees the citizens right to serve his or her own conscious. It violates the 4th amendment which guarantees that citizens right to not be subjected to searches and or seizures. It violates the 5th amendment which guarantees that the citizen has the right to not self incriminate as well as the right to life, liberty and private property, that property cannot be entered or seized by government entities without compensation. It violates the 13th Amendment that says that no one can be subjected to slavery or involuntary servitude. It violates the 14th amendment which guarantees the citizens right to life, liberty and private property. The whole thing is completely illegal.

  9. Government should only be responsible for
    Power generation / grid
    Potable water supply
    Public transport
    Medicare system
    Post office….
    Other than that stay out of our lives, (I'm sure I missed some essential services, your input to the list is appreciated)
    The willingness of the police to inflict violence on the public needs sorting, then they can go on the list .
