Jordan Peterson is a Canadian psychologist and professor at the University of Toronto. I recently stumbled across his work since one of my favorite hosts, David Rueben, has interviewed him several times. Their most recent interview on Peterson's book, 12 Rules of Life, is extremely fascinating. The conversation ranges all over, but the first half hour is especially robust. If you don't have time to watch the entire video, I suggest just starting around 8 minutes in ending around 20 minutes in.
Peterson echos the same sentiment that I wrote about in my post A Revolution Inside. He argues that unless we both understand and have control of our own negative qualities (or shadow self) we will project our worst impulses into the political arena while wearing a "mask of virtue." We need to work on ourselves first if we want to be an effective force for good and not end up doing more harm. If we want to see the world change, we must first concern ourselves with healing our own lives.
