The Japanese Soldiers Who Wouldn?t Surrender

quote [ Emperor Hirohito?s announcement of Japan?s surrender at the end of the Second Word War came as a blessed relief to millions of Japanese who had suffered during the long hostilities, but not everybody was prepared to lay down their arms. Japanese soldiers had been indoctrinated to fight onto death, refuse surrender and sacrifice themselves instead of being taken as prisoners. ]

Jordan Peterson: Chaos (and Order) at McMaster University

quote [ The "panel discussion" at McMaster University Friday March 17th 2017. Overcome The Gap (OTG), the McMaster club who hosted me went forward courageously with the talk, despite experiencing substantial pressure to cancel. They did their best to regulate the event, but the protestors entered the room before the event technically started. ]

I find a lot of truth in Peterson's words here and I think this debate is quite important, and would love for it to continue in the comments. This is not a "LOL stupid protesters" post, rather I feel this video accurately portrays the environments that I and all my peers, which includes the protesters, are attempting to learn in.
