Jordan B. Peterson: An Invitation to the Future

  1. What story should guide us as we make our way forward?
  2. How should we take the responsibility of environmental stewardship seriously?
  3. How do we govern our corporate, social and political organizations so that we protect ourselves against the ever-present danger of collusion and corruption?
  4. How do we support long-term, stable, child-centred families?
  5. How do we provide energy and resources to the largest number of people, thereby alleviating absolute poverty, in the most efficient and sustainable manner possible?
  6. How do we facilitate the development of a responsible, educated, maximally responsible citizenry?

Perhaps you won’t agree with each of Peterson’s points, but I believe an alternate vision for the future is badly needed. Have a listen and then start creating your own vision of the future.
