I like Jordan Peterson - he's intelligent, articulate and passionate about his beliefs - but I do think the noise around him now is too much. I agreed with the original point he made about drawing a line in the sand somewhere regarding free speech but he has now chosen to die on that hill and it's not a hill I would die on. People on both sides - both in favour of him and fervently against him - have missed the point and are jumping on the band wagon in both directions, muddying the waters. He, too, in defence of himself has, at times, gone too far and become a caricature of himself. The amount of money he is making with these pursuits are also making some people question his motives. I think Bernie Schiff summed it up best when he said that Peterson is polarising at a time when more polarisation is not what we need.
