Postmodernism: How and why it must be fought

This is a clip from a late February 2017 Manning Centre Conference in Ottawa, Canada, where Dr. Jordan Peterson spoke along with Professor Gad Saad and John Carpay, President of the Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms. The three men discussed the political turmoil on university campuses, in broader society, and the role of postmodern theory in producing that turmoil.

Postmodernism is a literary theory of extreme skepticism that denies reality and objective truth. It is the brainchild of Leftist, European philosophers of the 1950’s but also draws from 19th century German philosophers such as Immanuel Kant, Johann Gottlieb Fichte, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, and Friedrich Nietzsche (respectfully).

Despite those political left claim to be about reason, science and equal opportunity, (they are not). Instead the left has revealed itself as actually being against science and opposed to reason. A clear example are environmentalist groups lying about genetically modified foods, climate change, medical testing on animals (vivisection) and vaccines.
