1:21:30 Jordan Peterson: the necessity of following our conscience
1:26:35 Chris Anthony Lunsford (Oliver Anthony) reads Matthew 22:36-39, saying:
“A Pharisee asks Jesus…
“..which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
If we could learn to make those two commandments… our priority, and then base our differences below that. God is here (hands high), our love for each other here (hands lower), and then below that is try to find a way to integrate our differences in a way that everyone can live a better life. It would resolve a lot of the conflicts….”
1:49:30 Lunsford (Anthony) “There has to be something pure and honest and righteous at the top of our focus, collectively to maintain that.” What Jordan Peterson just described.
Jordan B. Peterson and breakout musician Chris Lunsford, better known by his stage name Oliver Anthony, discuss the balance between vision and efficiency in artistic and commercial endeavors, why Chris’ hit song “Rich Men North of Richmond,” has resonated so broadly and so quickly, the way honest expression through music can combat demoralization, how politics have become confused with the sacred, and what we can do to restore each to their proper order.
