The Fight Against Worldwide Child Slavery & the Sex Trade | Jim Caviezel and Tim Ballard | EP 372
By Jordan B Peterson
Dr. Jordan B. Peterson discusses the new film “Sound of Freedom,” with star Jim Caviezel and real life inspiration Tim Ballard. The film details Ballard’s work as a Special Agent to fight against sex trafficking and the child sex trade. They go into depth on the psychology of pedophilia, the nature of good and evil, and how a steady faith in God has guided all three.
Tim Ballard is the founder and CEO of Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), which locates and rescues endangered children victimized by sex trafficking rings. Previously, he accrued a decade of experience as a Special Agent in the Dept. of Homeland Security, working as an undercover op for the U.S. Child Sex Tourism Jump Team.
Jim Caviezel is a prominent American actor and household name in no small part for his portrayal of Jesus Christ in “The Passion of the Christ,” (sequel coming in 2024). He has had a decades long career both on and off screen, and is an advocate for faith in the modern world.
Here’s what others had to say:
God bless Tim Ballard, Jim Caveizel, and Jordan Peterson for exposing this evil to the world!
Thank you so much for the interview. As a Zimbabwean/African, I can confirm that children are being kidnapped and killed for rituals. In Zimbabwe, there is this case of a child called Tapiwa Makore who was killed by his uncles. They chopped Tapiwa to pieces and took his head & body organs. It’s sad what’s happening in this world. I applaud you all for your efforts.
As an Ghanaian, i can attest to everything Tim is saying about heinous crimes committed against children. There was a time in my childhood that parents wouldn’t allow their children to go out and play. Because you could be killed for your genitalia. Africa is wild when it comes to these things
I’m not a Christian, I’ve struggled with faith for most of my life. And in a sense I am drawn to those who have faith as I’ am seeker of it. There’s something about this interview and the participants that bring me closer to it. So thank you.
I’m from Tegucigalpa, Honduras and for me was shocking to see that the whole story revolves around two Honduran children. I was in tears and the actor who portrayed the role of the Father is Honduran. The Honduran authorities need to see this and stop this great evil that is destroying our children inside and outside of Honduras. We all Honduran people need to do our Part. Tim Ballard should be invited to the country and be honoured like a hero but I know he is not looking for any world reward but to do what is right and truthful accordingly to God’s truth which is the only truth that will make us free.
I am a child abuse and neglect attorney and after 17 years of practice I must admit to have lost count of the amount children whom I represented. Some were trafficked, raped or tortured, bought or sold. Others were neglected or made to work instead of going to school to pay off the debt they incurred getting here. Who ever says child trafficking is not real is ignorant or dishonest.
Thank you Jordan, for this interview. Thank you Tim and Jim, for the stand you are taking for children. My prayers and respect are with you all.
I went to see this movie with my wife and grandson, there were times that it was hard not to cry. I’ve known a couple of girls in my life, that had their fathers do this heinous act, for years. All these girls grown lives were horrible because of what happened to them. It’s not their fault, they were innocent babies.
As a survivor of sexual abuse.. this just makes me feel so… fortunate!? Even on my worst days, I see how much worse it could have been. Just horrific.
This is one of the greatest interviews I’ve ever seen. The references to the Bible, the way in which Jordan articulates himself and the questions asked are spot on. 3 amazing men, may you continue to do what God has commanded and put you on this earth to do.
It’s so hard to comprehend how we live in a world where people like the Kardashians are world-wide famous, idolized, and followed by millions, yet, we just barely know about the existence of a superhero like Tim Ballard and his colleagues. we need a re-set button.
Watching this episode & listening to how Tim Ballard’s wife “irrationally” told him to do right thing despite the possible consequences tore my heart & i burst into tears. God bless people like Mr. Jordan & Caviezel. May God keep & bless all of u.
Sound of Freedom is one of the most profound and powerful cinema experiences I have ever had. It is a huge breath of fresh air in contrast to the sludge that Hollywood has been churning out for years, and with its realistic and restrained approach, it hits with enough force to actually impact people on a personal level.
Phenomenal interview with three gentlemen who have gone through their heroes journey and have lived to tell about it and while doing it not losing their faith in something higher. Not at a zero cost thought, i feel i can see the pain in each of their eyes as they contemplate and tell each other their stories. 10/10 if im even in a place to judge these 3 extraordinary men.
I was a victim of regular sexual abuse as a toddler and unfortunately they’re my earliest and regular memories… Thank you to all the amazing people who are fighting this… No child should ever go through this…
I couldn’t give this video enough likes even if I got to give a million. The sound of freedom, and all these courageous men and women involved in this work and effort, are heroes and a little slice of the justice I’ve been praying for my whole life, and justice for all victims of sex abuse. may this only be the beginning of a huge movement in Jesus name! God bless you all, I’m so proud and honored to call you brothers and sisters in Christ!
