- THE BLAZE - SARAH TAYLOR - NOV 11, 2021 -
Famed psychologist and author Jordan Peterson blasted the government's hysteria over COVID-19 vaccines.
What are the details?
In an interview with Dave Rubin, Peterson said that he believes the U.S. is quickly moving to a state of totalitarianism due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
"The thing that surprised me the most, probably, was how rapidly we stampeded to imitate a totalitarian state in the immediate aftermath of the release of COVID," he said.
"You know, if you think it through a little bit, no one really knew how serious the virus was going to be, and so it was an unknown threat. And so you could imagine a herd of animals or a school of fish, for that matter, because this kind of phenomena is universal throughout the animal kingdom."
He continued, "The cost of overreacting to a threat is generally minimal compared to under-reacting to a real threat. Overreacting to a hypothetical threat is cheap compared to under-reacting to an actual threat, because if you under-react, you could die, whereas if you overreact, you generally just get fired for a minute."
Peterson then explained that a panicky herd mentality is often the biggest threat to humanity.
"So a herd will stampede because the most neurotic member of the herd jumps first, and then they'll instantly follow them," he said. "And that's kind of what we did in the early stages of the pandemic. The Chinese acted first — now, unfortunately they are a totalitarian state — and we all followed. And that's excusable in some sense because we didn't know what sort of threat we were facing."
