Is there hope for academia?

You talk a lot about how certain parts of academia have been corrupted by identity politics. Yet, I see no better alternative process for truth-discovery than academia. Is there any hope academia's central function can be restored?

Contending with Postmodernism

What advice would you give to a 19-year-old seminarian who believes in Absolute Truth surrounded by postmodernists? Is it possible to speak Truth silently via Being?

The Southern US (The Deep South)

You said you recently traveled to Nashville, Tennessee, and I wish to know what your views are on the South, particularly the Deep South, in general. We have a strange history of many ironies, great struggles, and tough progress. Our bad deeds, the lessons learned, and our progress is best exemplified in C. Vann Woodward's book The Burden of Southern History. I've many questions I want to ask you, but I guess first among those... There are many stereotypes of us Southerners out there, I being from Alabama, most notable is prolly the movie Forrest Gump. The "Left" often looks at us racist dimwits, however, I've heard from some on the "Right" that we are looked at as almost alt-right fascists. So, tell me Professor Peterson what are your views on us in the Southern identity?
