My wife, Tammy, and I toured Australia and New Zealand in February 2019. I was lecturing about the topics covered in my book, 12 Rules for Life (and also Maps of Meaning, my first book). I had a number of the lectures professionally filmed. This highlight from my lecture in Auckland focuses on what might be done about crippling feelings of guilt.

On May 2, 2019, in San Francisco, I spoke to the Independent Institute on "The Meaning and Reality of Individual Sovereignty" (available for viewing here: http://bit.ly/2LKeljL). This Q & A was held later in the afternoon, allowing more audience members to participate in the discussion.

The Independent Institute is a non-profit, non-partisan, public-policy research and educational organization that shapes ideas into profound and lasting impact. The mission of Independent is to boldly advance peaceful, prosperous, and free societies grounded in a commitment to human worth and dignity. Applying independent thinking to issues that matter, the Independent Institute creates transformational ideas for today’s most pressing social and economic challenges. The results of this work are published as books, the quarterly journal, The Independent Review, and other publications and form the basis for numerous conference and media programs. By connecting these ideas with other organizations and networks, Independent seeks to inspire action that can unleash an era of unparalleled human flourishing at home and around the globe.

My wife, Tammy, and I toured Australia and New Zealand in February. I was lecturing about the topics covered in my book, 12 Rules for Life (and also Maps of Meaning, my first book). I had a number of the lectures professionally filmed. This is a highlight from my lecture in Auckland on the fundamental necessity of the presumption of innocence.

This special Independent Institute event was held on May 2, 2019, in San Francisco. Why has the idea of individual sovereignty been granted such primacy of place in free Western societies? Why were the men who formulated the Declaration of Independence willing to declare: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness," and, further, to insist "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

Why, as well, are ideas of individual sovereignty, which have proved so successful in guaranteeing freedom and prosperity in the West and, increasingly, around the world, under attack, by those on the left and the right who offer collective identity as an alternative?

I'm introduced by Independent President David J. Theroux. My comments are followed by a conversation with Independent Institute Senior Vice President Mary L.G. Theroux and Executive Director Graham Walker.

A public Q and A session was held a little later in the afternoon, and is available here: You can also watch the additional Q&A session from the event here: http://bit.ly/2GccaBY

I'm afraid that I am somewhat behind with my YouTube postings, as I am dealing with very serious health issues with my wife, and the distress and complication associated with that has brought me to somewhat of a halt. This is an interview from New Zealand from a couple of months ago. I think it's still relevant. I hope it's still relevant.

The interviewer, Sean Plunkett, is one of New Zealand's more credible journalists, in my estimation. He's received the Qantas Media Awards in radio and television categories, the New Zealand Radio Awards and the 2001 European Union Journalist Award.

Joe Rogan needs little introduction. Host of what is perhaps the most widely known podcast in the world, the Joe Rogan Experience, he is also a former martial arts champion, a TV star (Hardball and News Radio, Fear Factor), a UFC commentator, and an exceptionally successful standup comedian, with several Netflix specials under his belt, as well as numerous comedy CDs.

He's a very effective and engaing interviewer. He asks tough questions. He has his own point of view. But he listens, and he treats his audience with respect. They return the favor, with hundreds of millions downloading his podcast and watching the Joe Rogan Experience on YouTube (http://bit.ly/2XmYcXP) with more than 5.5 million subscribers.

He's been a great friend to me.

I talked with Dennis Prager at the Prager Summit in May in Santa Barbara. It's really a discussion about two previous talks, for a collection of three. I would recommend watching them in the following order:

First, watch Who Dares Say He Believes in God? (https://youtu.be/MnUfXYGtT5Q). That lecture was part of my 12 Rules for Life tour, and took place in Sydney, Australia, Feb 26, 2019.

Second, watch the lecture I gave just before this discussion at the Prager summit: On Claiming Belief in God: Commentary (https://youtu.be/vwKCK5EhibM),.

Then watch this discussion.

The three presentations will make the most sense in that order, which is why I placed them in the same playlist, On (My) Belief in God: http://bit.ly/2I6g0hq

This discussion is also available at the PragerU YouTube Video Channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L47oJxwp6yg. Thanks to Prager U for the invitation and opportunity.

I delivered this talk at the Prager Summit in May in Santa Barbara. However, it's really an extended commentary on a lecture from Sydney, Australia, Feb 26, 2019, entitled Who Dares Say He Believes in God? (https://youtu.be/MnUfXYGtT5Q). I would strongly recommend watching it first.

After that lecture, and then this commentary, you could watch the discussion I had with Dennis Prager at the same event (https://youtu.be/j0GL_4cAkhI).

These are all part of the same playlist, On (my) Belief in God, and will make the most sense in the suggested order.

This commentary is also available at the PragerU YouTube Video Channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avInTfCd92Q.

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 7:21, KJV).

I have been asked many times by many people if I believe in God. I don't like this question. I generally respond by stating that I act as if God exists, but that's not sufficiently true. Who could do that? Who could conduct themselves with the moral exactitude and care necessary of someone who would dare to make that claim? Either claim? In any case, after being asked the question yet again, when I was in Australia, I decided to attempt to answer it in some detail.

This lecture, one of the 12 Rules for Life tour taks, was delivered in Sydney Feb 26, 2019, at the International Convention Centre. It was one of six I had professionally video recorded. Five of the six will be released directly on thinkspot, our new social media platform (to be announced in mid-June), as a bonus for direct subscribers (not to worry; there are still more than 50 to be released as audio on the Jordan B Peterson podcast at http://bit.ly/2HUdgnc, so it's not as if there will be any shortage). But I thought YouTube would be appropriate for this, given the potentially broad interest in the topic.

I've made a new playlist for it, too, entitled On (my) Belief in God. Three videos will make their home there: this one, a 20 minute talk I did for the Prager summit in May of 2019 (), and the interview/discussion I had with Dennis Prager at the same event. They're available at the Prager site now: the former at (http://bit.ly/2K3GJgD); the latter at (http://bit.ly/2wLHwKk). I think they'll make a good group, and I would recommend watching them in the playlist order, which will be this lecture first, then my Prager talk, then the interview, if you're interested in doing so.

The idea of belief in God is of extreme importance. I hope that these lectures and interviews add to everyone's understanding of my position and why I hold it..

I last spoke to Dr. Stephen R. C. Hicks (www.stephenhicks.org), Professor of Philosophy at Rockford University, Illinois, USA, Executive Director of the Center for Ethics and Entrepreneurship, and Senior Scholar at The Atlas Society in August of 2017 (http://bit.ly/306ggDQ), and decided that it was time for an update. Dr. Hicks received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Guelph, Canada, and his Ph.D. in philosophy from Indiana University, Bloomington, USA. He has published four books, translated into sixteen different languages:

• In 1994; 2nd ed 1998 The Art of Reasoning: Readings for Logical Analysis (co-edited with David Kelley, W. W. Norton & Co., 1994, second edition 1998).
• In 2010, Nietzsche and the Nazis
• In 2016, Entrepreneurial Living (co-edited with Jennifer Harrolle)

The remaining book, published in 2004 and expanded in 2011, Explaining Postmodernism: Skepticism and Socialism from Rousseau to Foucault, has been particularly relevant to our discussions. It’s available at Amazon.com (https://amzn.to/2Jh4Uro) but also in pdf form on Dr. Hick’s website (http://bit.ly/2MaI9rH). I found it very helpful when trying to understand the intellectual roots of the ideas that appear so dominant in today’s universities.

I should start by saying that Milo is definitely now on the list of those who no one acceptable socially should ever speak to, which I suppose is one of the reasons why I’m talking to him. I want to know what happened to him over the last few years, in his words, and I don’t really give a damn if that’s politically incorrect.

He's a a hard man to categorize. Part journalist, part performance artist, part agent provocateur, part comedian and wit, Yiannopoulos is a man of immense and complex self contradiction. He’s half-Greek and half-Irish, but is know as an Englishman to the Americans with whom he has communicated extensively. He’s gay, and Jewish by descent. He married to his long-term boyfriend, an African-American man, in Hawaii, in 2017, but faces frequent accusations of racism. He is—or was—strangely attractive to young American Republicans, and completed a successful and controversy-ridden tour of US universities in 2016-2017. For at least two years, he was one of the most well-known internet celebrities, let’s say, on the political front, and caused more uproar than any other single person that I can think of.

In my view, for what it’s worth, Milo was such a figure of inner contradiction and outer controversy that I believed his time was numbered. Nonetheless, the circumstances of his demise were unpredictable, I would say (and that’s in keeping with his apparent destiny). After revealing details of his early sexual experiences at the hands of a decades older priest, whom he refused to name, he stated that he was an active participant in the events, and that such occurrences were far more common (and far more consensual) than people were willing to admit. I don’t think he ever recovered from the controversy that those comments generated.

Our conversation centered mostly around these issues, which I believe to be of wide general relevance. Hence the video.

Links relevant to Milo:

How to Be Poor (latest book)..

I posted this yesterday, but the volume was too low, so now it's been raised.

On February, April 19, 2019, I debated Marxist philosopher Slavoj Zizek in Toronto, April 19 at the Sony Centre. Dr. Zizek is a Slovenian philosopher and professor at the Institute for Sociology and Philosophy at the University of Ljubljana, whose works on cultural studies, psychoanalysis and, above all, for the purposes of our debate, Marxism, are world-renowned. The topic? Happiness: Marxism vs Capitalism. This is the official video. Many bootlegs have already been released, but that seems inevitable given our current state of technological capability.

I started with a critique of The Communist Manifesto, which is the central revolutionary document of the Marxist movement (rather than addressing, say, Zizek's work, which wasn't what the debate was about).

It wasn't so obvious for the rest of the discussion that Marxism, per se, comprised the central topic of discussion.

Watch for yourself.

A good article, I think, on Zizek: https://www.iep.utm.edu/zizek/#H2

Dr. Zizek is a Slovenian philosopher and professor at the Institute for Sociology and Philosophy at the University of Ljubljana, whose works on cultural studies, psychoanalysis and, above all, for the purposes of our debate, Marxism, are world-renowned. The topic? Happiness: Marxism vs Capitalism. This is the official video. Many bootlegs have already been released, but that seems inevitable given our current state of technological capability.

I started with a critique of The Communist Manifesto, which is the central revolutionary document of the Marxist movement (rather than addressing, say, Zizek's work, which wasn't what the debate was about).

It wasn't so obvious for the rest of the discussion that Marxism, per se, comprised the central topic of discussion.

Watch for yourself.

A good article, I think, on Zizek: https://www.iep.utm.edu/zizek/#H2

Podcast version at: https://www.jordanbpeterson.com/podcast/a-conversation-with-akira-the-don/

Akira the Don is a British musician, DJ and producer. He’s worked in genres as diverse as pop, hip-hop, indie, dance, and more recently, perhaps, something that has come to be known as Lofi.

For reasons that have been quite surprising to me, Akira has been making lowfi tracks, also known as meaningwave, a combination of metred spoken word and music chosen for its emotional and conceptual appropriateness, from some of my saying and my talks. They been reasonably well-listened to (although I am not sure of the standards of such things), garnering maybe a million views over the 10 or 15 or so that he has posted. The two main albums, 12 Rules for Life and JBP Wave Genesis, have elicited more than million streams each on Spotify (and that doesn’t include iTunes and other content providers of the same type).

The third album oriented around my words is entitled JBP Wave: Paradise. It was released in April of 2019. Earlier that month, Akira also released a long single, 42 Rules for Life, based on the totality of the rules I had written for Quora several years ago.

Akira has also produced similar works featuring Alan Watts, Jocko Willink (who is currently number one in the meaningwave tracks), Terrence McKenna, David Foster Wallace and Elon Musk, among others. Overall, Spotify downloads have topped 4 million, with an approximate exposure of a million.

My wife, Tammy, and I toured Australia and New Zealand in February. I was lecturing about the topics covered in my book, 12 Rules for Life (and also Maps of Meaning, my first book). I had a number of the lectures professionally filmed. This is a highlight from my lecture in Auckland on the fundamental necessity of the presumption of innocence.

It has become necessary for me to cancel my scheduled lectures at the Polish National Foundation May 7th and the Apollo Theatre in London England on May 8th. This video briefly explains why.

Thank you all for your understanding and support.

Tomorrow, I will be debating the renowned Marxist philosopher Slavoj Zizek (https://www.iep.utm.edu/zizek/) at the Sony Centre in Toronto at 7:30 PM on the topic: Happiness: Capitalism vs Marxism. We have decided to livestream this event, for those who might be interested in watching events unfold as they happen. Tickets for the livestream are available at https://www.jordanvsslavojdebate.com/ and also enable the debate to be viewed any time up to 30 days after purchase. We will also place the debate, in its entirety, on YouTube after a month.

I’d also like to let you know that Season 2 of the Jordan B Peterson Podcast has now started, with the first three episodes up: two 12 Rules for Life lectures, one from Seattle and one from Portland, as well as an interview with General Stanley McChrystal, retired four star general and former commander of the International Security Assistance Force and Commander, US Forces, Afghanistan. We have partnered with Westwood One (https://www.westwoodone.com), the largest audio network in the US. My daughter Mikhaila (https://mikhailapeterson.com/) is serving as co-host. This means, we hope, higher production quality, weekly delivery, and a broader reach for the podcast, which will now also be ad-supported. Jordan Peterson Videos on YouTube, which will also feature most of the podcast content, will remain unmonetized, as previously.

I am going to London in May to celebrate and promote the release of the May 2 standard Penguin paperback of 12 Rules for Life into the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Indian and other international English markets (not including the US and Canada as of yet). Pre-orders of that paperback can be obtained at the Penguin website here: http://bit.ly/2ItAuRH I’m very excited to join the great back catalog of Penguin paperbacks, which I have always loved. I’m also attending an academic conference on free speech at Oxford while in England, and subjecting myself with some trepidation to the UK press.

Finally, ..

Mr. Jamil Jivani is a Yale Law School graduate who rose out of the depths of a history of extreme academic underachievement to the pinnacles of educational success. He was born in Toronto, and attended Humber College, and York University, prior to enrolling at Yale, where he was Program Director of the Marshal-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Program and President of the Yale Black Law Students Association. In 2014-2015, he was an articling student at the major Toronto law firm Torys LLP.

He has also worked diligently in Toronto to improve police-community relationships, and co-founded Teachers Beyond the Classroom, which seeks to help unemployed educators transfer their skills to new occupational opportunities across the Greater Toronto Area.

Mr. Jivani is, in my opinion, a textbook case of a man who took responsibility. He came from a rough background, certainly one of comparative deprivation, and made far more of the opportunities that were still hidden there in some sense than might be reasonably expected of any man.

It seems to me that a world that had more people like Jamil Jivani in it would by anyone's standards be a better place.It was a privilege to speak with him. I hope you enjoy the conversation, and I would encourage you to pick up his book, "Why Young Men: Rage, Race and the Crisis of Identity." You can get the book in Canada at Amazon.ca here: https://amzn.to/2UiPI24

You can pre-order the US version, due May 21, 2019 in the US at MacMillan at http://bit.ly/2HKqNPg

His podcast, The Road Home with Jamil Jivani, is available at Spotify at https://spoti.fi/2UcgpWq as well as on the many other podcast apps popularly and commonly available.

His website can be found at https://www.jamiljivani.ca/

I should also point out that Mr. Jivani has managed many of his remarkable achievements while suffering from a very serious illness, which we also discuss in this podcast.
