    Addendum: I've just downloaded the paper cited in article from Dropbox and it - the article - should really be posted in its entirety here; perhaps I'll make time to do this later or perhaps someone else could make the effort? Thanks.

    In the meantime, of many in truth, Jordan's paraphrasing here from Hudlicky's paper leaps out and reinforces the point crystal clearly:
    "Under Diversity of Workforce: “In the last two decades many groups have been designated with ‘preferential status’ (despite substantive increases in the recruitment of women and minorities). Preferential treatment of one group leads inexorably to disadvantages for another. Each candidate should have an equal opportunity to secure a position, regardless of personal identification/categorization. Hiring practices that aim at equality of outcome is counter-productive if it results in discrimination against the most meritorious candidates. Such practice has also led to the emergence of mandatory ‘training workshops’ on gender equity, inclusion, diversity, and discrimination.”"

    Quote Posted by Delight (here)
    Psychiatric medications are SO DANGEROUS and the medical establishment is VERY out of touch with the harm being caused. It is so good that someone with a high profile like Jordan Peterson is being open with his experience.

    This is a discussion by two people who offer peer to peer support after they went through terrible ordeals with benzodiazepines and other psych meds. Hopefully people who are not taking these medications WILL NOT start. The people who have become physiologically dependent can slowly wean off. It will be uncomfortable.

    I have personal experience with this. Prescribed clonapin years back for anxiety and insomnia. I was prudent taking it at the time, and a low dose, but when I tried to stop went into terrible state of apathy, malaise, body aches etc, that was persistent. I have a relative who has been on them for over a decade and I doubt they will ever be able to get off due to age and other health factors, because the attempts at withdrawal have been so awful and life interfering.

    Jordan Peterson's Daughter (Mikhaila) Shares Details of Her Father's Battle With COVID-19

    Source: Sputnik

    11:04 GMT 11.08.2020
    by Lilia Dergacheva

    Despite noting the whole family had to go through the coronavirus ordeal, which she said turned out to be less than originally feared, Mikhaila Peterson stressed that the aftereffects of across-the-board lockdowns are no less "miserable".

    Mikhaila Peterson, daughter of psychology professor Jordan Peterson has recounted in a new Instagram post how the whole family recently contracted COVID-19, a month after they arrived in Belgrade, free of coronavirus measures at the time, for her Dad to be treated by Serbian neurologists.

    Noting her toddler was the first to show flu symptoms 10 days into a strict quarantine after the country finally announced self-isolation measures, she said all the family swiftly contracted the disease - "not the worst virus I've had in the last year", Mikhaila noted, adding though the mild symptoms like bloating, puffy face, and diarrhoea lingered for up to 18 days.

    "My dad caught it too and he didn't have many symptoms either. When they did a CT scan they said 40 percent of his lungs were affected, however his breathing was fine"
    , Mikhaila, an expert on dieting and nutrition, recounted.

    She said that he had been treated for the coronavirus "just in case", noting he is okay and that the medication her father was put on seemed to be "harsher than the actual virus".

    After outlining the details of her father's disease, which happened to him shortly after battling a previous medical issue - physical addiction to the prescription drug benzodiazepine - Mikhaila went on to stress she stood by her previous complaints about the ubiquitous lockdown.

    "I'm sorry to anyone who has experienced a worse case of the virus or who has lost anyone to it. That's miserable", she pointed out, rushing to stress that so is "suicide from lockdown anxiety and lifelong neuroticism from children growing up in a lockdown".

    According to Jordan Peterson's daughter, it all could have turned out more positively if the world was more focused on "making people happier", with Mikhaila lamenting the public being "screwed up by a virus that doesn't really kill healthy people".

    Mikhaila's famous father, conservative public speaker and lecturer Jordan Peterson, who has been amassing large audiences for the past few years, has been dealing with some serious health and family issues, prompting him to take some time out from the public eye.

    Before travelling to Serbia for rehabilitation from his physical addiction to benzodiazepine, the anti-anxiety drug he lived on as his wife battled cancer, he also underwent some detox treatment in Russia.

    After contracting the coronavirus, daughter Mikhaila told the media last week that her father was going through a really rough time, pondering on a new ordeal in the conservative guru's life and "a step back in his recovery".

    "He'll get better, but he's definitely taken a step back and it's just really unfortunate … it's been a disaster", Mikhaila Peterson told The Sun.

    Jordan Peterson skyrocketed to prominence in 2016 over his protests regarding Canada's Bill C-16, which added gender identity to the country's human rights and Criminal Codes, requiring to use gender-neutral pronouns for non-binary people. He has since been a prominent speaker on YouTube, Twitter, etc., as well as the bestselling author of the self-help book "12 Rules for Life".

    I have returned home to Toronto after spending much of the last eighteen months in hospitals. I am hoping that my health has improved to the point where I can start producing original content again. Thank you to all who are watching for your support over the course of this trying time. I hope that you all are coping with the COVID crisis successfully.

    I agree with his daughter. I would fire those lunatics on the spot. You cannot negotiate with or appease those types. They're intellectual terrorists.

    And then I would bottle their tears and send them off to the nearest lab for testing in the hopes that we could find a cure for this type of insanity.

    These are the same people who stole the election as well. No morality, low empathy, ethical communists and fascist professionals.

    As soon as the Nazis took power, and while the old German Chancellor looked on, they held good old book burning ceremonies all over the country...

    This ideology is a cancer. It is worse than the covid scare because it is real and not unfounded. Study what happened in Russia, in China, in Iran, in Venezuela, in Cuba, in so many places too numerous to count. This is in the communist playbook - they did not burn that well deserving book, I observe.

    Those types of tears are due to an abject terror of facing one's own Shadow.
    Denial only seems to be a more comfortable state of being.
    When in fact, despite the difficulty and pitfalls of Shadow work, denial is more like aborting or erasing one's potential for growth and authenticity.

    Wow! Yes, that was perfectly put Nat. I think that's exactly what it is.

    Also, theyre crying for themselves. Selfish tears masquerading as compassion for the "oppressed". It's all very performative.

    I'm suspecting that very large scale parasitical infection has occurred and is ongoing and everywhere.
    There's no sanity to it. I'm amazed that onlookers rationalise or try to reason with it. Why bother? It wants the attention very badly!

    Meanwhile the agenda is to more and more normalise it.
