Peterson wants young people to educate themselves. He wants them to read these authors:
Solzhenitsyn, Orwell, Huxley, Nietzsche and Jung. It will be difficult, but what is the alternative? to be a stagnant infant when you are forty?
He reminds us of Pinocchio and urges us each to free ourselves from the strings. Who is pulling your strings? Pinocchio decided to just busy himself with impulsive pleasures, as a victim who did not have to take responsibility for his own existence and therefore fell into the hands of totalitarianism at Pleasure Island.
Peterson urges us to ask ourselves, what is the highest possible good for you and your family? What would it look like if you took responsibility to find that truth?
