WATCH: Jordan Peterson Backs Brexit: ‘As a Canadian, I Bet on Britain’
Outspoken academic and author Dr. Jordan Peterson has suggested he backs Brexit in an appearance on the BBC, after presenter Jo Coburn asked if he was a spiritual Brexiteer.
Dr. Peterson became something of an online sensation after taking a public stand against speech codes concerning gender pronouns in his native Canada, denouncing them as an attack on freedom of expression.
He is also known as a forthright critic of left-wing identity politics, the many myths surrounding white privilege, and the alleged gender pay gap as well as for a viral interview with Channel 4 presenter Cathy Newmanin which he successfully defended his positions.
On Brexit, the University of Toronto lecturer told the BBC he had sympathy with peoples desire to disentangle themselves from rulers who are too far away in the power hierarchy from them.
Asked why,the academic explained that as people move away from you up hierarchies its harder and harder for them to represent you at a local level.
He also said he had a tremendousamount of faith, all things considered, in the people of the UK to muddle through properly, because theyve been doing that for a very, very long time to the delight of veteran eurosceptic Bill Cash MP.
My sense, as a Canadian, is that I bet on Britain, Peterson added.

The 12Rules for Lifeauthorhas previously been even more forthright, comparing the so-called European project to the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel during a question and answer session with his many Patreon supporters.
If you try to build a homogenous, totalitarian structure that usurps the transcendent, it will begin to badly fragment from within, and I think the story is a warning against gigantism, he said.
I think one of the things thats happening in Europe is that were seeing the folly of the idea of too big to fail what were seeing instead is the manifestation of So big it will certainly fail.
I think the reason for that is there has to be a certain degree of homogeneity within anything that can be categorised as an organisation.
If the degree of heterogeneity within the organisation becomes too extreme, and if the organisation becomes too large, then its very difficult for people to feel an affinity with it.
Theyre going to fragment back into subsidiaryidentity groups and those might be national groups, for example, which seems to be whats happening in Europe and then the whole thing is going to fall apart, he explained.
And I have some sympathy for that, because I think that its necessary for human beings at an individual level to feel some sort of an affinity for the power structures that they find themselves in, and maybe being one three-hundred millionth of an entity is to be too much of a non-entity to feel any affinity for that structure.
