Totalitarianism in Durham


The city council claims to support Peterson's right to express himself in public but at the same time wants him to refrain from exercising this right. Peterson attacked the city council statement, calling it "a conceptually brutal mishmash of self-righteousness, indignation and utter moral and political confusion." It is "one of the purest demonstrations I have yet seen of the tendency for the ideologically possessed to use denouncement tactically as a means to amplify and exaggerate personal or identity-group virtue."
