THIS is how we 'fix Gen Z,' according to Jordan Peterson

Members of Gen Z have been trained by a faulty educational system to lack motivation, but that doesn’t mean they can’t turn things around.

Dave Rubin knows someone who can help.

“Who has explained a way out of it and gotten more young people to deprogram themselves than my good friend Jordan Peterson?” Rubin says, before playing a clip of Peterson telling a Fox News host what he thinks should be done.

“I think that if you set up an education system that’s designed to do nothing but demoralize young people and to convince them that their ambition is dangerous and, well, even world-threatening, for that matter,” Peterson says, “then you’re going to get exactly that. You hit what you aim at.”

These young people, Peterson believes, “are never taught anything about how to acquire a direction,” leaving them directionless.

Peterson references a study using a program he developed calling Future Authoring.

“We had university students sit down essentially for 90 minutes,” he explains, “and write out a goal, a series of goals for their life, right? Who could they be in five years across seven important dimensions of their life and where might they be that would be terrible if they didn’t get their act together?”

This study dropped the dropout rate by 50% and raised the grade point average by 35%.

“That’s all you have to do if you want to motivate young people is to teach them a bit of visionary discipline and encourage it,” Peterson adds.
