Jordan Peterson is on the right track

Dr. Jordan B. Peterson is a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, a clinical psychologist and the author of the multi-million copy bestseller 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, #1 for nonfiction in 2018 in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, the Netherlands, Brazil and Norway, and now slated for translation into 50 languages.

In his interviews he is absolutely right to describe supremacy to be a dominant characteristic when it comes to skills and competency. It is what I summarise under the first dimension, D1.

He also absolutely supports egalitarian (legal) frameworks, which allow people to develop and thrive according to theirs individual talents and preferences – among them biologically determined ones. That is the second dimension, D2.

What he seems to be missing (?) is the third distinctively different aspect of life in a modern community: the third dimension = economic life, which is characterised by mutuality (fraternity).

It would be great to have him discover the true reality of those three dimensions in a society. And, logically, that they must be disentangled.
