“Nothing brings a better world into being than the stated truth. You’re going to have to pay a price for that, but that’s fine. You’re going to pay the price for every bloody thing you do and don’t do. You don’t get to choose not to pay a price, you get to choose which poison you’re going to take. So if you’re going to stand up for something, stand up for your truth, it’ll shape you.”
Jordan Peterson, quoted by Tim Moen “MY Letter to Young Libertarians” in The Post Millennial September 4, 2018
