“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” …
“Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.”
Agree with most of the quotes.
I think Jordan Peterson takes us closer to an understanding of the nature of humanity than anyone before, though he is still missing a couple of aspects.
The biggest single issue is that most of our systems have essentially been captured by cheating strategies, that have warped the general understanding of what we are and how we got here.
A real understanding of evolution would emphasise the role of cooperation in the emergence of complex systems, and the role of attendant strategies in preventing such complex cooperatives from being overwhelmed and destroyed by cheating strategies.
It is time for humanity, for sapience generally, to adopt a cooperative approach to survival and freedom based in a universal respect for life and liberty, acknowledging that complexity and freedom can only exist within the necessary sets of constraints, and that violating those constraint puts the entire system at risk.
Understanding complexity is essential.
