Modern Political Polarization: Peterson, Harris, Bloom and Pinker

A few video clips from Jordan Peterson’s interview with Stefan Molyneux, and Paul Bloom on Big Think analyzing modern political polarization, and the role and manipulative use of empathy.

Steven Pinker goes into how free speech in actuality neither a political left or right issue, has become seen as an issue of the “political Right.” Jordan Peterson, a clinical psychologist and political activist goes more into depth about the use of language by leftists. This has to do with politically motivated and state-sponsored agendas to change or abandon language, and its consequences.

Sam Harris advocates for a New Centre Politics in the face of political extremes. He goes so far as to say the modern left is irredeemable.
