On Being: A Meek Monster

In the videos below, Dr. Jordan B. Peterson talks about our need to recognize the monster within and how we should learn to develop our monster voluntarily before we become possessed by it. The same darkness that allowed the Holocaust, the Armenian genocide, and the death of millions in communist Russia and China lies within each of us, because human beings committed those atrocities. We cannot escape our humanity; we must confront it, and deal with it. The result is, hopefully, becoming a meek monster.

“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5

“Better to be a warrior in a garden, than a gardener in a war.” ~Chinese Proverb
