Morality emerges out of iterative voluntary games. What we regard as moral is the principle that most aptly governs the longest game.
It's an idea Peterson borrowed from Jean Piaget, a Swiss psychologist. Piaget focused on kids as ways to understand humanity at large. He believed that the act of voluntary play in kids is the precursor to ethical societies. The games are thus micro-cosmoses of society and as we grow up we are just extending the game into adulthood.
If you think life is not a game, then you are not playing it properly.
If 2 groups are playing a game: one group playing the game voluntarily and another one forced to do so .... The voluntary group will always outperform the other.
Fiat, ruling through power, is demonstrably a sub-optimal strategy compared to freedom. This idea has implications in:

Alan Watts used to say life is a dance, not a journey. The eastern tradition has identified play as a the natural state for peace. Interesting how a psychological analysis can come up with similar findings.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
