Dr. Jordan Peterson on PBS "Firing Line"

This has only just been recorded and I post it here for two reasons; firstly, this woman is a first-rate interviewer who LISTENS and, secondly, Dr. Peterson talks (towards the end) about totalitarianism and people who supported those regimes. We only discussed this recently in The Chatterbox regarding conductors, in particular:

An excerpt of an interview is included in the program with William S. Buckley interviewing Billy Graham. I was struck by the cold pomposity of Buckley and I thought, "you can't be serious". He reminded me of Lord Kenneth Clark of the "Civilization" series on British TV in the 1970s. An excellent program but its presenter of a cold and pompous demeanor. The exact opposite of Jordan Peterson!!
