Graphic Quotes: Jordan Peterson on Free Speech and Conflict Negotiation w/Video

“There is only three states of being. There is slavery, tyranny, those are both forms of conflict or negotiation. Negotiation depends on freedom of speech and you have to be able to talk to people if you are not going to fight with them or capitulate to them. It’s as simple as that.” Jordan Peterson
